How to Drive Traffic to Your Blogs Posts Using LinkedIn (60,000 Website Visitors Per Month!)

– You have a blog, you’re
writing all these pieces of content, but you know what? No one’s gonna read it, why? Because you’re not doing what I’m about to teach you right now. Hey everyone, I’m Neil Patel and today, I’m gonna share with you how to generate more blog
traffic using Linkedin. (soft music) Linkedin is one of the best
social networks out there, especially if you’re in the B to B niche. Linkedin’s way better
than Facebook and Twitter for B to B, it has your
ideal customers on there. And you’re not getting them, you may getting some visitors to your blog but they’re probably not
converting into customers and that is because you’re
not leveraging Linkedin. The first thing you need to do is connect with other people within
your space on Linkedin I’m a marketer, if you look at most of my connections, they’re
business owners and marketers. That means they’re my potential customers or they’re within my field
and they can promote it to other people who are following them. And the cool part about Linkedin is, you can have up to 30,000 connections. Once you hit 30,000 connections like me, sadly they cap you off. If it was up to me, I would say that they should
just make it unlimited ’cause I want more traffic from Linkedin but for now, 30,000’s enough. So now that you’ve got
thousands of followers, what you wanna do is the second step, is post your content on Linkedin. See if you just click the share icon within your blog post, like
on the Neil Patel blog, in my sidebar, where as you’re scrolling, you’ll see Linkedin social sharing icons, and if you click that,
it doesn’t really help me generate that much traffic. But, what does help me
generate way more traffic is when I take my content,
put it on Linkedin, and only put the first
few paragraph on Linkedin and then have a click to
continue reading link. By having that, I’m getting
thousands of visitors from Linkedin per day right
now, isn’t that crazy? Before, I wasn’t even
getting more than a few thousand visitors from Linkedin, and now I’m getting over
a thousand visitors a day it’s that big of a difference, and all I’m doing is just putting the first few paragraphs and then putting click to continue reading and that drives people to my website. Of course the third tip
and I kinda covered this, have the Linkedin social
sharing button on your blogpost it doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t
help a lot to be quite frank but again it doesn’t hurt. Something’s better than nothing. And last but not least,
when you’re sending out your email blast, ’cause every
time I release a blog post I at least tell people
through my email lists, hey go check out this post, you can put it in a PS at
the bottom of your email and tell them to share it on Linkedin. Combine all those strategies,
you will get more traffic from Linkedin and better yet, you’ll get more leads and sales, ’cause Linkedin as some of
the best traffic out there especially if you’re in the B to B niche.

  1. I've really got into LinkedIn lately. As you say, using LinkedIn to hook people initially with a "continue reading" link is a great tactic.

  3. Is it possible to setup LinkedIn to automatically post your blog posts, like a connected RSS feed? My Amazon author page allows this, and so does Goodreads. Taking every blog post and manually copying it into LinkedIn is something that I would prefer to automate.

  4. Thank you for that.
    I'm doing all that you said and still getting no huge traffic. When I copy/paste an article I wrote I get few views on the article.
    I don't know if it's only me but I feel that posts on LinkedIn don't perform as much as they used to do before.

  5. Why does everyone claim that you don't have X result and that's why you have to watch the video, maybe you have already blog traffic but you just want to increase it

  6. Hey Neil , Can I post all my Blog content to all my Pages like Linkedin, Google plus, Facebook, Medium. Will it attract copy content penalty?

  7. Hey Neil, would like to know if there is a strategy for using hashtags on LinkedIn, for Example we can know number of followers on Instagram for particular hashtags but we can't do it for LinkedIn. Please tell me what would be the ideal number of hashtags to be used for LinkedIn?

  8. I love all the comments that I'm seeing here, because they all point towards content being king. I agree with you that if you have a blog that you trying to promote you should always focus on the messaging and the quality of the material that you putting out. I would also go a step further and say that company blogs should also dovetail with their marketing departments to ensure that personalised content is promoted. Things like loyalty videos from companies like Treepodia are incredibly important. You can boost your return on investment, boost stickiness on your site, and create a product that appears to be tailored to the end-user. That's what it's all about.
