How to Improve Your LinkedIn Marketing Strategy:

3 Tips for writing super-awesome updates on LinkedIn (What, When, and How often!)


1) What to post on LinkedIn:

In order to perfect your LinkedIn Marketing strategy, you first and foremost need to consider what kind of content you will be publishing. Studies have shown that LinkedIn users tend to be most interested content that contains industry insights, company news, and information about new products and services. It’s important to offer your audience added value. So, why not try sharing posts that are the “best of” or “top” lists related to your field?

  • Include a link in your post! Updates with links and CTAs get 45% more engagement.
  • Post a picture! When you post a picture on LinkedIn your are 98% more likely to receive a comment.
  • Get more shares by posting videos! Research shows that users are 75% more likely to share videos than any other type of post.


2) How often should I post on LinkedIn?

Now that you have a better idea of WHAT to post on LinkedIn, we’ve got to nail down WHEN and HOW OFTEN to post. We recommend that you post once per day, Monday through Friday. LinkedIn released a study that showed that pages who posted 20 times per month were able to reach 60% of their public. Evenings and weekends do not seem to result in much engagement on this network, so we recommend avoiding posting then.

3) When to post on LinkedIn:


If you want to maximize the reach of your content, it’s clearly a good idea to post when the majority of your audience is online. Since this is a work-related social network, studies show that the larger number of people are on LinkedIn during business hours. That’s why we recommend posting in the morning or around lunch-time.


It’s important that you test out which times work best for your audience and industry. In the case that you or your staff create content during other times of the day, or it seems inconvenient to have to remember to login and update your account everyday, we’re going to show you how to use Postcron to schedule all your posts for the week automatically!
