60 LinkedIn Post Ideas for Business Owners

Oct 25, 2019

Have I told you lately how much I love LinkedIn? 😍

As I build my personal brand and my business, it’s my go-to place to hang out and connect with people I want to learn from and work with. My potential clients are seeking me out and I’m using my LinkedIn profile as the ultimate lead generator.

But if you’re not familiar with the platform, it can be a bit confusing to know what exactly to post. It’s not Instagram, so you’re not going to share photos of your latest meal. And it’s not Facebook, so fur babies and real babies are not great content.

Have no fear - your social sidekick is here to answer:

What should I post on LinkedIn?

We’re going to aim to balance professional with personality. Grab one of these 60 post ideas and give it a go:

  1. The story of how or why your business was founded.

  2. The reason/meaning of your business name.

  3. What does your logo represent?

  4. The most popular song from the year your business was founded (check this website.)

  5. Behind the scenes: video/image of something the public wouldn’t usually get to see.

  6. Jargon definitions - define words which are specific to your industry/business.

  7. Tools of the trade - what tools/software/hardware/equipment do you use daily?

  8. Who do you most admire in your industry and why?
