LinkedIn is a social media platform that many bloggers don’t take advantage of. Using LinkedIn correctly will help you market and promote your blog! I have a few tips that will help get you started and hopefully drive some traffic to your blog.
LinkedIn could be your ticket to an awesome blogging job or even more traffic!
How to Use LinkedIn to Market and Promote Your Blog
Connect with Like Minded People
If you are looking to take your blog to the next level, be sure to connect with like minded people. LinkedIn is filled with business owners and entrepreneurs. LinkedIn gives you the opportunity to connect with people who can really help you brainstorm and start thinking outside of the box. You might also find a really awesome social media job using LinkedIn!
Complete the Profile
When you first set up your LinkedIn account you will want to complete the profile. The first thing brands and business owners are going to look at is your profile. If your profile is not completed they will probably move on to the next person. Having a complete profile could mean getting a great blogging job or some additional traffic to your blog. Once you have the profile completed start making connection with other LinkedIn users. Building connections will help give you more exposure!

If you are familiar with Facebook then you probably know how groups work. Well there are groups on LinkedIn as well and I highly suggest joining a few of them. I only suggest joining a few groups at first and focus on being as active as possible! Remember LinkedIn is all about building connections, the more active you can be the better.
Try to join groups that are of interest to you or represent what your goals are.
Update Your Status
Lots of people sign up for LinkedIn and then never do anything with it. Please do not be one of those people who has a blank LinkedIn account. Be sure to update your status on a regular basis! Ask questions, leave a link to your most recent blog posts, let the LinkedIn community know what business adventure you are up to or anything else you deem appropriate. Keep in mind that LinkedIn is a professional social media network so keep it clean and professional!
