LinkedIn

Formal, informative company updates. Utilising LinkedIn's geographical targeting, markets can work off one global page while still catering for their own markets in local language.

Structure

Below shows how LinkedIn posts are structured - we've pulled out the key elements that make up a post on the platform.


Profile image

Ensure the page is recognisable - use the associatedlogo for the brand. The logos should be 400x400 pixels and the stacked logo should be used where necessary.


Header image

Header images should be on-brand and consistent throughout each social media platform. During marketing campaigns we often run header image takeovers, which link to campaign messaging to enhance our campaign presence. The recommended size for background images is 1584x396px and no larger than 8mb.


Content

LinkedIn is different from other platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, in that it's not as visual, therefore it's important to get the copy right. Be descriptive, however ensure your post copy isn't too long (over 200 characters), as LinkedIn will truncate your message, hiding your post copy and instead displaying a "see more" link.


Media

Media posted to LinkedIn should be of high quality and must follow company guidelines – all thought leadership articles must be accompanied by the media supplied by our social media agency.

The optimum size for images is 1200x628px, while video is best delivered at 1280x720px (Landscape) or 720x1280px (portrait).
