We know it’s hard to believe as it breaks most social media rules, but LinkedIn users LOVE long-form content! Of the four ways you can post on LinkedIn (text, image, video, and document), text-based posts tend to receive the most views and highest engagement rates.


Now we know that text-based posts are the way to go on Linkedin, so let’s talk about what kind of text posts are the best! Here’s a few tips:

The longer the better

According to a recent study, LinkedIn posts between 1,900 and 2,000 words in length perform best and gain the greatest number of views, likes, comments, and shares.


This might seem obvious, but keep your posts relevant to your industry or to what is going on in the world. Posting just to post isn’t going to get you the attention you want. Make sure you are adding value to your followers’ LinkedIn feed. How-To and list style posts are among the most viewed types of text posts on LinkedIn. 

Add Visuals

Although photos alone don’t perform as highly as other types of posts, when combined with long-form text they can help to boost views!You will want to use high-quality photos to enhance your post.

The bottom line? If you want to get your LinkedIn followers engaged in your content and inspired to share, make sure you are posting long-form, high-quality, relevant content to capture their attention!  

Featuring Your Posts
