Of course, there are a few tricks to make it more interesting and make people want to read it and react. You can, for example:

  • Include emojis: to make your content more “friendly” than a block of text 😜,
  • Aerate the text: you have the opportunity to write a long LinkedIn post. Think about airing it out to make it more enjoyable!
  • Add a visual: photo, video, document can be included to your LinkedIn post to capture more easily the attention of your readers…
  • Include hashtags. It is possible to subscribe to hashtags on LinkedIn: by including them in your LinkedIn posts, you make your content accessible to users who have subscribed to the hashtags in your text. Think about it to reach a wider audience!
  • Issue a call-to-action: what better way to encourage your readers to react, for example, “comment on my LinkedIn post to receive the newsletter!”.
  • Create a poll if you want to know what your readers think about a particular topic.
