1. Use all 100 connection requests each week

Exhaust your connection requests every week to get as many connections as possible.
The more relevant connections you have, the better your chances of growing your LinkedIn personal brand.
With connections, your brand visibility increases and you get more engagement from your posts.
For better results, send a short, simple message with each connection request.

2. Search for posts you can comment on

Don’t waste your time scrolling aimlessly on your LinkedIn feed. Instead, search using relevant hashtags to discover posts you can engage with. Remember, you’re on LinkedIn to build your brand and expand your audience.
For example, to find posts related to UI/UX design, search for #uiuxdesign and filter by Posts. This brings up all the posts with that hashtag.
Don’t comment on posts for the sake of commenting. Ensure your comment adds value to the reader.

3. Use your free time to comment on posts

Commenting on posts builds your rapport with other LinkedIn users and makes your brand more visible to your target audience.
There’s so much free time wasted unnoticed that you can use to engage with posts on LinkedIn. Comment on posts:
  • On the train, bus, or flight
  • While waiting for your date to show up at the restaurant
  • In the loo
  • While waiting for your appointment
  • During break periods for your favorite game

4. Have a constant flow of new content to post each day

Create your own content, repurpose your existing content, or curate other people’s content.
Whichever option you choose, showing up daily with content is crucial if you must etch your brand in the mind of your target audience. Posting content at least once daily is the most effective way to attract and engage your audience.
Plan your content ahead of time.
Don’t wait till tomorrow to create tomorrow’s content. For example, you can create a content calendar that covers your content for the next three months.
 

5. Use a tool to automate your Linkedin posts

Scheduling your posts before time helps you post content at optimal times for your audience. For example, if you discover that your ideal audience is always active between 12 pm-3 pm on Fridays, you can schedule your Friday posts at that time to gain maximum reach and engagement.
💡
Use a scheduling tool like Taplio’s LinkedIn post scheduler to automatically post your content at the right time even when you’re unavailable.
With Taplio’s LinkedIn post scheduler, you can:
  • Write, schedule, and publish all your posts
  • Preview your posts to see how they’ll appear when posted
  • Mention other users in your post
  • Automatically message users who interact with your post

6. Outsource your content to a ghostwriter

Sometimes, you can’t meet up with the content demands of your audience. Do you give up and stop creating content altogether? No!
You hire someone else to write content for you.
This saves you time and allows you to focus on your LinkedIn content strategy while your ghostwriter creates the content.
You’ll find talented ghostwriters on freelance platforms like Fiverr, Upwork, or FlexJobs. Make sure whoever you’re outsourcing your content to understands your target audience and brand voice.

7. Use Linkedin Premium
