2. Add links to your posts
Consider if you're promoting a post that you want people to engage with on LinkedIn or go to a website. If you want them to go to a website, add a link. If you want to engage people on LinkedIn, make sure that you add your photo or your video directly to the platform and it will be prioritized.
