⚡️PYP: The results of my LinkedIn experiment

Published 27 days ago • 2 min read

Hey Reader,

First off...I am SO sorry for abandoning you for a week. I was going to send this email last Sunday. I had a few adjustments i needed to make and hten planned to send it while flying from Portland (where I live) to NYC.

But my water bottle exploded on the flight and when I went to pull my laptop out of my backpack it was sitting in a puddle...and no longer worked.

So it's been a whole mess of getting everything back up and running!

Okay, back to the point of our email :)

I've been running a little LinkedIn experiment.

I've been sharing videos with every single post for the last 9 days or so.

Here are my results from the first 7 days:

  • 96% increase in impressions
  • 40% increase in engagements
  • 113% increase in shares
  • 244% increase in followers (this image doesn't show the stat clearly. I gained 281 followers during this experiment, compared to 115 the previous week)

Pretty astounding results, huh?

I also shared more context into how I did it and the ahas that resulted.

I think there are a few important things to note here:

Reaching a new audience

I noticed a lot of comments and engagement from people I don't normally see responding to my content. That feels like a huge win.

More calls booked and DMs sent

I consistently get calls booked and DMs sent, but the videos definitely increased that, especially from people whose names I didn't recognize. And nearly every single one mentioned a specific video.

Not everyone watches the video

LinkedIn's aggregated video analytics aren't great, but you can look at the analytics for each post, and it's clear that only about 50% of the people seeing my post actually watch the video.

So it's essential to have written content that can stand on its own and use the video to go deeper into the topic.

If you're regularly on the platform, you might have heard the rumors that LinkedIn is actively building a video-only news feed for its mobile app.

I think LinkedIn is interested in capturing some of the audience and attention currently devoted to TikTok and Instagram, so they're pushing video.

My recommendation? Now is a phenomenal time to start trying video content.

I'll be continuing to make video a core part of my strategy and I'll be sharing more advice on how you can also.

In love and growth,

Hey Reader— Before we dive into LinkedIn for Noobs Part 2: Optimizing for Engagement and Impressions, we need to talk about my recent discovery. I shared this yesterday on LinkedIn, so click the video for more details. But the gist is that there is yet another reason why video presents such a powerful opportunity on LinkedIn. We already know the results of my first week of video. 40% increase in engagement 90% increase in impressions 218% increase in follows But now, I’m realizing a new...

Hey Reader— You know by now that I am all in on LinkedIn video. Since I started about a month ago, I’ve only done 2 posts without video and that’s because I pre-scheduled a couple of LinkedIn polls while I was away on vacation. I shared the details of this experiment here, but just to recap, in just my first week, I saw: A 40% increase in engagement A 90% increase in impressions A 218% increase in follows Not freaking bad, huh? As a result, I’ve been getting a ton of people asking for tips,...

Hey Reader, Recently, I went on a 12 day vacation with my husband and pre-scheduled a few LinkedIn posts so that I could continue to prompt some limited engagement in my absence. I thought it would be the perfect time to re-test an old favorite strategy of mine — LinkedIn polls. Most LinkedIn polls are dumb…why are do we care whether people like nutella or peanut butter better? But you really can use them to learn important, valuable information about your audience. One of the polls I ran...
