POSTING WITH PURPOSE
Hashtags are relatively new to LinkedIn®. When you post your content from the homepage, simply add hashtags using the # symbol.
Adding hashtags to your LinkedIn® updates and articles gives them a higher chance of being discovered by LinkedIn® members, who follow or search for the hashtag you’ve used.
Here are the top 10 most popular hashtags on LinkedIn® as of July 2019:
- #management - 34.9million
- #humanresources - 32.9million
- #digitalmarketing - 27.2million
- #creativity - 25.3million
- #technology - 25.0million
- #markets - 22.5million
- #entrepreneurship - 22.7million
- #startups - 20.8million
- #venturecapital - 19.5million
- #socialmedia - 19.4million
Tagging People in Posts
Always make sure your tags are relevant. Don’t simply tag people because they have many connections (it annoys them when people do that!).
LinkedIn will notify them that you have tagged them in their notifications, encouraging them to engage with the post and ensure that their network and yours see it.
That’s it for today. We finished Chaprer 7: Posting With Purpose. Tomorrow, we will read a new chapter, Chapter 8: Positioning Your Expertise.
LinkedIn hashtag: When you post a great piece of content, it can be picked up by the LinkedIn® Algorithm, and your post can start trending with that hashtag, which will increase your visibility. People you may not even be connected with on LinkedIn® will see the post because they follow that hashtag.
Using too many hashtags on LinkedIn® could also result in the LinkedIn® algorithm marking your post as spam.
Post daily on LinkedIn®, and engage with everyone who comments.
Choose different themes for your posts to mix up your content marketing.
Post different types of posts to mix up the appeal to different learning styles.
Use hashtags and tags in every post to get your content found by a wider audience.
Always direct your content at your exact target market, but never, ever sell.
