How I Get Followers & Clients on LinkedIn (+ A 7-Day LinkedIn Post Challenge For You)

My LinkedIn Journey: The Turning Point

  1. Stay consistent. Find a frequency that works for you and keep posting (mine’s two posts a week, minimum).
  2. Share your story. Share what you’ve learned, even a personal story (positive or negative), and when you’re tired, curate and add your comments and thoughts.
  3. Engage when you have the time. Like another person’s post, start following thought leaders in your niche and comment on their posts, connect with old classmates, colleagues, people you bumped into, and I don’t know, past Tinder dates, maybe? (Ok, maybe not, hah!)

What You Should Know About Posting On LinkedIn

  • Build thought leadership for yourself or your brand
  • Share your views, corporate culture to get more followers
  • Gain a competitive advantage amongst peers
  • With more followers, you build more career opportunities (companies can recruit better, employees can hope for promotions)
  • With more content, you also improve customer acquisition and retention as people start to know, like and trust you better (for businesses)

What You Should Do Before Starting To Post On LinkedIn

The Content Strategy I Use for LinkedIn Posts

  • Write and share personal business/content marketing lessons
  • When in doubt, repurpose Instagram/newsletter content into LinkedIn
  • When in a rush, curate an article from the internet and add my words

BONUS: The 7-Day LinkedIn Post Challenge (with Prompts)

  • When did you get your first client/job?
  • How did you feel?
  • What do you do differently today when onboarding?
  • Ask: “Tell me your story!” (Tag people whose story you want to read)
  • Why is the statistic is so important?
  • Ask: agree or disagree?
  • Tag people whose posts you always look forward to reading.
  • Ask: what topics from your niche would others like to read about?
