HOW TO BECOME A LINKEDIN INFLUENCER IN 2019

Find below all the steps and instructions on how to become a LinkedIn influencer in 2019. Written by MAU. Senior Digital Marketing Specialist at eDigital.



LinkedIn Influencers are welcome by invitation only and comprise a global community of 600+ of the world’s foremost thinkers, industry leaders, and innovation minds. As leaders in their industries and geographies, they discuss newsy and trending topics.

At the moment, Linkedin does not accept Influencer applications. However, the list of Influencers changes throughout the year. LinkedIn Influencer Program team regularly evaluates existing Linkedin Influencers to work only with the most engaged, prolific, and thoughtful influencers and to ensure that their expertise matches Linkedin members’ interests.

Being a Linkedin Influencer translates to an opportunity to reach a larger audience and spur more engagement going forward.

HOW DOES THE LINKEDIN INFLUENCER PROGRAM WORKS?

A team of Linkedin editors works with influencers to create content in the form of articles and posts that LinkedIn believes make LinkedIn members more informed professionals and spark thoughtful conversations.

LINKEDIN TOP VOICES / INFLUENCERS 2018

The official LinkedIn Top Voices / Influencers of 2018 has not been released yet. LinkedIn uses a combination of data and editorial signals designed to capture the voices making a mark in their industries, region, and country. This includes:

  • Engagement (likes, comments and shares across each member’s articles, posts and videos)
  • Growth of followers tied to publishing activity
  • Number of times the writer had been featured in editorial channels, a signal of high-quality content.

The list reflects publishing activity over a 12-month period, from November 2017 to November 2018. As with all LinkedIn Lists, they excluded LinkedIn and Microsoft employees from consideration.
