What should my LinkedIn Posts be?

Aside from choosing something that is both high quality and relevant to your business, it can be difficult to know exactly what your post images should feature. This is entirely up to you, your business and what you believe your target audience will be most receptive to.

Nowadays we strongly believe that the “social” should come before the “marketing” in social media, however that doesn’t mean that there is no room to promote your business.

User generated content is one of the most powerful marketing tools at your disposal; using this authentic type of content in your cover photo can go a long way in rapport and loyalty building.

If you have a free webinar, a conference, or even a social contest that’s coming up soon, don’t be afraid to feature it in your posts. It’s an effective way to let new users know about it right away.

LinkedIn image mistakes you can avoid

While you can choose any number of images for your post there are some things you shouldn’t do. Certain mistakes will detract from your page and may even detract from how users perceive your business.

Some mistakes you can avoid:

Having too much text – Some text is great, especially if it’s being used for branding. Some photos only have text overlay against a solid backdrop. This is typically not a good move, even if you’re focusing on an insanely motivational quote; instead, your cover photo should actually be an image that’s able to speak for itself.

Too much going on – We’ve all seen pictures on social media that are so cluttered that looking at them too long might give us a headache. There’s lots of colors and focal points and things to look at. While this might sound appealing at first, it’s just difficult to focus on and can even look sloppy, it might just be too much.

Choosing something generic – You want your cover photo to stand out; that’s what it’s there for. Choosing a generic image that could be about your business somehow won’t have the impact that you’re looking for.

Not adding branding – When possible, adding subtle branding like your logo to the image can make a big difference with brand recognition.

Final Thoughts

Some amazing images will just be made from graphics while other will use actual photographs. Whichever you choose, there are plenty of resources you can pull images from if you don’t have a high-quality image that you’ve taken yourself.

The perfect LinkedIn image goes a long way in helping you make a great first impression with new users. Don’t forget your posts may reach many employers and/or work colleagues and it’s essential that everything looks perfect. LinkedIn is good way to evolve professionally and you can use Seedtale for it! Check out our other posts on LinkedIn, LinkedIn Profile image and LinkedIn Company cover!
