Linked has now turned 20 years old, and in the past 20 years, it has been a one-stop destination for working professionals. Furthermore, LinkedIn is used for multiple purposes like finding jobs, making content, networking, and a lot more.
Do you know? That more than 52 million people apply for jobs via LinkedIn every week. So what makes LinkedIn one of the best in business? It’s time to find out.
Why is LinkedIn the best platform for professional growth?
One of the most valuable aspects of LinkedIn is its extensive network of professionals from all fields. Whatever your industry, you will find top-notch individuals to connect with, learn from, and share your own expertise.
Additionally, there are various groups and communities where members can exchange ideas and showcase their work. For those seeking inspiration, joining a relevant group is highly recommended.
LinkedIn can be used as a platform to create a personal brand as well. I personally believe that having 1000 followers on LinkedIn is equivalent to having 25,000 followers on Instagram. This is because among your followers could be someone holding a top position in a company or someone starting their own business.
If you are someone looking for a job, then LinkedIn makes your hunt easier. With its “Easy Apply” feature, you can apply for jobs in a few clicks. The fantastic thing is that you don’t always have to look for jobs; jobs will look for you. Don’t get confused; let me explain.
If you are active on LinkedIn, you often post about your progress and work. And, if your posts reach the right audience, then there is a high chance of you getting an inbound job offer. If you think you’ll get 1-2 inbound offers, then let me tell you that you can get multiple job offers.
So if you want to ensure your posts reach the right audience, follow this.
How LinkedIn posts reach the right audience
First and foremost is the content that you are going to post. The quality of the content and the right tone totally depend upon you. Whatever you are posting, make sure it creates a hook at the beginning and has an interesting flow. The better your post is, the higher the chance that people are going to read/watch it.
Well, content is in your hand, but reaching the right audience requires luck. Well, the “Luck” we are talking about here is actually “Algorithms”. The best part about algorithms is that they can be cracked.
So the first thing is the tags that you are using in your posts. Try finding people who are posting similar content and try to look at the tags they are using. After a couple of experiments, you may notice that your posts are getting good impressions and engagements.
The last and most underrated aspect that most people ignore is the timing. Timing is everything when it comes to posting on LinkedIn. If you post content on LinkedIn, you can understand what I’m trying to say here. Posting at the right time can boost the visibility and reach of your posts.
However, it’s not always possible to be available at the right time, and we don’t want to miss it. What’s more, LinkedIn doesn’t offer and post-scheduling feature.
