How to Easily Quote Articles and Improve Engagement on LinkedIn with Your iPhone LinkedIn App


Hi! It’s Viveka von Rosen, Chief
Visibility Officer with Vengreso and I wanted to show you a really cool way to
share articles. Those are you know, LinkedIn’s blog posts as it were, from
your connections on LinkedIn in a way that’s super easy, super fast, and I think
a little bit more effective than “hey read this.” So the first thing is find
someone who actually writes articles. We’re looking at Tamera’s articles right
now. You’ll click through to that article and then find something in the article
that you want to quote. So I’ll just come down here and you know it’s bolded so
I’m going to assume it’s a good quote. Now obviously you want to read the
article first. You’re going to grab that link, and then click on share on LinkedIn.
So see how it pulled that article up or it pulled that piece of text up? So now I
can describe the post a little bit more. Obviously, I would tag Tamara on it
since it’s hers and I’m sharing it. And I would want other people to follow her as
well. Add relevant hashtags and when you’re ready, post it. Now that’s great.
And so I’ve already actually already posted this because it’s my second video
on it. But here’s another cool thing, let’s just say you’re not quite ready to
post it, but you do want to save the article for later. One of the things that
you can do is click on X, so I’m not ready yet just to share this, so instead
I’m going to save the draft. And now I can save that article and I can always
come back into it later. And where you find those drafts are if you go into
your profile, so let me go back to the home screen. There we are, if you go to
your profile you’ll see down here it says, “saved article.”
And so there’s Tamara’s article, and I can always go back in and share it again.
So I have to do the same process. It looks like you can save the original
draft and I think that is the intention. I just think right now it’s a little bit
glitchy, so eventually I think we’ll be able to save that draft with the copy,
and then be able to share it again. But at least for right now, you can either
very quickly pull a quote and share that quote with your update, or you can also
save the article for later. So if you want to go through your feed, find
several articles that you want to share, and save them, you can do that too and
that’ll make sharing at a later date a little bit easier to do. So I just wanted
to show you that really cool new option from LinkedIn.

  • Hi Viveka, thanks for showing us that "really cool new option " from Linkedin. How do you capture your mobile phone screen into the video ? That is something I've wanted to do for ages

  • Thanks for the great info Viveka! I tried your example on the saved draft post and got same result (no copy accompanied article) I hope there will be an update to fix that soon. I 2nd James Gunn's question – I've wanted to capture my phone screen for videos we produce. Can you share what app or tool you are using?

  • Any idea when this will be available for Android users? Really cool feature. Thanks for sharing, and btw, never did hear back from you on what app you used on your last tip showing you "cut out" while you were showing your desktop screen. thanks
