Step 3

Linkedin Website traffic creator tools

This Creator Hub pop up appears, and you can add the topics you talk about the most, and if available you can add LinkedIn Live and Newsletters.

Both creator tools; LinkedIn Live and Newsletters allow you to share content directly with your connections. LinkedIn live helps you build rapport and connection, and the Newsletter allows you to stay in touch. You can use both to drive traffic back to your website.

Once you've activated your LinkedIn Creator tools, the next step is to optimise your LinkedIn Profile.

You can add in links to the featured section:

Linkedin Featured links

You can click the pencil icon and edit the featured section.

In mine I have the link to my LinkedIn Newsletter, my two main services, and the blogging challenge. This gives the curious the opportunity to click through and get to know me more, and join the blogging challenge if they want to double their traffic.

LinkedIn also own Slideshare, the most popular slideshow sharing site in the world. Now, you can post your PowerPoint decks and link to them in your profile. You can also share them on your newsfeed, to attract more views. This is a great opportunity to showcase your portfolio, services and other areas of expertise. Remember to add your website links into your slides footer, so your viewers can click through to your website.
