How to Share Posts on LinkedIn

To share content on LinkedIn, start by signing in to your account. At the top of your LinkedIn homepage, you'll find the share box. Click on Start a post if you're looking to share text, or select the appropriate icon to share a photo, video, or article. You can also click on the More icon to discover additional post suggestions such as celebrating an occasion, sharing job openings, creating polls, adding documents, or finding experts. After creating your content, select the visibility for your post. You can share it publicly, with your connections, on Twitter, or with a specific LinkedIn Group. Finally, click Post to share your update.

To repost content from other members or LinkedIn Pages, click Repost under the desired post. You can choose to repost directly or add your own comments by selecting Repost with your thoughts. Use the "@" symbol to mention people, companies, or schools in your comments. Adjust who can see your repost in the Post settings pop-up window and click Done. Finally, click Post to share the repost. To delete a repost, select Delete post from the More icon's dropdown menu and confirm by clicking Delete.

To share a post in a private message, click Send on the lower-right corner of the post, select the recipient(s), add a message if desired, and click Send.

How to Show Promotions on LinkedIn

To add a promotion within the same company on LinkedIn, navigate to your profile and scroll down to the job experience section. Select the position you were promoted in and click on the plus sign. Enter the details of your new role, including job title, position, start date, and any other relevant information. You can also choose to end your current position as of now. If done correctly, your job promotion will appear under the same company listing in your profile but as a different position. To notify your contacts about the promotion, check the option above. Remember, adding job promotions on LinkedIn may take up to two hours to be shared with your network.

Best Time to Post on LinkedIn

Understanding the best time to post on LinkedIn is crucial for maximizing visibility and engagement. Generally, the best times to post are during business hours, specifically between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM on weekdays. High-engagement days include Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Mornings from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM, lunchtime around 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM, and evenings from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM are optimal posting slots. However, it's important to consider your target audience's time zone and behavior on the platform. Experimenting with different posting times and analyzing engagement data will help you identify the most effective schedule for your specific audience.
