How to Grow Your Business Using Video on LinkedIn | Neil Patel

By | August 8, 2019

Do you wanna get more video views? Well today I’m gonna teach you one simple hack that will get you a ton more video views. Hey everyone, I’m Neil Patel and today I’m going to share with you how to get more video views on Linkedin. (upbeat music) Now before we get started, I have a quick question for you guys. How many of you guys have ever submitted a video on Linkedin? Here’s the thing with Linkedin, they lack video content
and they’re craving for it. So much so where if you
just upload a video, you will get way more traffic on Linkedin then you will if you just posted an update that’s text related. I kid you not, in most cases you’ll see a four, five X difference. That’s a one simple hack and of course if you enjoy this, make sure you subscribe to this channel cause I have more tips, but don’t worry we’re not done there yet. I’m going to teach you some other hacks that will get you the
most out of your videos that you upload to Linkedin. So the first tip I have for
you is upload a SRT file. What most people don’t
realize about Linkedin is a lot of their videos are autoplay, people at work when they’re on Linkedin, they’re not hearing what’s happening If you have a SRT file, that’s all that text is
happening in the videos, that allows people to follow
along without their speakers. You could go to,
get your video transcribed and upload that
transcription into Linkedin. In addition to that, with Linkedin when you’re uploading a video you’re writing a description
about that video. You can use tools like Ubersuggest that will tell you all the popular keywords you should go after. That’s the second thing you want to do. Leverage popular
keywords, not just in your description when you’re uploading a video but also when you’re
using tags on Linkedin cause you can use tags,
a lot of the tags I use are like digital marketing, hashtag seo, hashtag google analytics, these are all phrases
that get searched a lot, which helps me get more traffic. The next tip I have for you is the first line in your
Linkedin description should be a short, one sentence. The moment people click see more, cause when you use short short sentences, Linkedin cuts it off, you have click see more to read the rest, Linkedin’s like, Oh people are engaging They’re clicking see more. That causes your video
to go much more viral. The next tip is to
respond to every comment, answering it and of course
asking another comment. When you do that, it’ll encourage more and more comments
and that’s one of the main factors in Linkedin’s algorithm, they’re purely looking at comments. The more you can get the
better off you’re going to do. So encourage em and also respond
to em as fast as possible right when they come in, cause that’ll cause people to keep coming back and leaving more and more comments. And last but not least, when you’re recording videos on Linkedin, I already mentioned that
comments do wonderful things. In your video, just ask
people to leave a comment and ask them a question. When you do that and
they leave more comments, you’ll naturally go
more viral on Linkedin. So that’s it. Thank you for watching. If you enjoyed this
video, like it, comment, share, subscribe to the channel. Of course if you need help

    Hey Neil, thank you for one more useful video.

    But your video made me stuck!
    I’m digging deep within social media add yesterday found out another recommendation for LinkedIn hashtags. They suggest to use no more than 2-3 tags.

    Could you please explain why do you recognize to use even more tags?

    And, please, suggest how to evaluate popular relevant tags for LinkedIn? I mean what service to use to find best hashtag for LinkedIn?

    Thank you Neil! I have been thinking about advertising on LinkedIn for a while now. But I haven't thought much about video because I simply haven't seen much there. I am very happy I came across your video. Q: are there restrictions against content promoting wealth-building, crypto, Forex, etc. as there are in FB?

  20. Carprincess Post author

    Great video Neil. I'm not sure if I'd use videos on LinkedIn, at least not at the moment, but I definitely agree with using captions on videos on LinkedIn. Whenever I'm on there, I'm not listening to any videos, I'm reading
