The LinkedIn profile setting called ‘creator mode’ is a great way to grow your influence and reach on this platform! Not only does it offer extra tools for content creation, but also lets you access features that help with building an audience. Follow our short and simple LinkedIn Learning guide and optimise your profile!

Why creator mode?

  1. The connect button on your profile will change to follow. You’ll see how many followers you have in the introduction part of it all!
  2. Hashtags are a great way for you to be discovered by other members. The topics that appear in your profile introduction can now be displayed as hashtags, making it easier to gain awareness from people in your market/ community!
  3. When you post original content on your profile, it will be highlighted with a spotlight that stands out among the rest. This section excludes likes and comments until someone selects ‘see all activity’.
  4. You are eligible to be featured as a suggested creator to make you easier to discover by potential followers.
