How I got 2 million views on a single LinkedIn post

You’ve heard that LinkedIn is where Facebook was 10 years ago– an early opportunity for us to get massive reach, traffic, and sales.

But do you know how the LinkedIn algorithm is different from all the others and what you must do to take advantage of it?

Of course, having a larger connection base and having high-quality content that makes an impact is key to all networks– YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and so forth.

But to get traffic on a particular post means you need super high engagement to drive even further viral reach.

Posts that don’t get a 10% engagement rate will fizzle out in the newsfeed– whether LinkedIn, Facebook, or any social network.

Check out this one that got 40,000 views and 500 likes.
