“How to Stand Out” with LinkedIn Video

LinkedIn’s continuing mission to engage users with networking strategies is turning its attention to effective text and sticker use.

Fun and professional

Sharing is the heart of LinkedIn Video and the best way to capture attention is to use all the tools at your disposal, including the new flourishes.

To help foster a creative video culture, LinkedIn has rolled out a gaggle of stickers ranging from a face-palming mug to a sprinting clock. #TipOfTheDay and a smartly interracial high-five help round out the menu.

The writing way

For the new text options, just like Instagram or Snapchat, users can overlay text in various sizes and fonts to help accentuate their video.

Rotation and resizing can be done with a pinch and zoom function as well. For those familiar with video on other social media, it won’t take long to get going with the latest flare.

The latest upgrades can be accessed through Android and iOS devices. Simply tap the video icon within the share box, record or upload your video, add a sticker or text by tapping the top right icons, and off you go.
