How to Publish on LinkedIn for Maximum Exposure - Sociafy.me

How to Publish on LinkedIn for Maximum Exposure - Sociafy.me | Social Media | Scoop.it
#1: Publish Early in the Week The best day to publish on LinkedIn appears to be Tuesday, with Monday as a close second. Shares decline as the week progresses and by the weekend, shares are at their lowest. #2: Match Your Content to Popular Channels LinkedIn matches every post to a specific channel, such as health care, big data or public relations. The more focused your post is, the more likely it is to show up in the most relevant channel. To find success on LinkedIn, pick a specific niche you’re familiar with and write consistent, compelling content around topics in that niche. Joe Pulizzi, the CEO of Content Marketing Institute, supports this idea as well: “What is the topical area that you want to be the leading expert in the world at? This is what you need to cover. Something niche, something practical, something incredibly useful.” However, not all topics are equally popular on LinkedIn. I analyzed 20,000 LinkedIn articles to see what the most popular articles have in common. I found that self-improvement topics like leadership, success, company culture and achieving greatness have more social shares, likes and views than articles about recipes or celebrities. That’s probably no surprise since LinkedIn is a professional social network. However, I found other niche topics unrelated to self-improvement that also received a lot of engagement on LinkedIn (average shares in parentheses): social media (1,138), productivity (1,125), storytelling (1,019), customer service (545), startups (490) and economy (431). The average LinkedIn shares by keyword or topic. As you …
