LinkedIn Publisher is here!

LinkedIn Publishing - originally available only to LinkedIn Influencers is here (or soon will be) for the general public! I just got access today and wanted to share it with you ASAP.

Here's a Short Video on how to use it:

For those of you who read  - here's how to do it:

1. You know you have LinkedIn Publisher when you have the little pen in your updates field. (Or you get the email telling you you now have it!
2. Create some new content  - I recommend doing it in a word doc first to catch spelling errors  - but don't add formatting, you can do that on LinkedIn Publisher
3. Paste into Publisher and add formatting, hyperlinks, images, bullets, etc.
4. Save it
5. PREVIEW IT (you'd be suprised the glitches that pop up!)
6. Post it
7. Share it!

And that's it. Easy huh?

A few more cool things?  The posts show up in your profile like the Activity Feed used to AND you can use the Article search on LinkedIn to search by keyword or name - so its almost like having Signal back.  Very exciting stuff.  

I'm not sure what the results will be as far as SEO and Google - but time will tell you - and once I know - you'll know!

Now its a matter of being patient until you get it too. Apparently it will be available to everyone soon!
