An article from

Are you struggling to come up with content ideas to share on social media? Want to know the content types that work best on LinkedIn?

The team from Brafton share their LinkedIn content tips in this infographic.

Here’s what makes the list:

  • Blog posts
  • Third-party content
  • Native video
  • Text only
  • Photography and illustrations

In addition to these, more recent research has also indicated that carousel posts perform well on LinkedIn, and with LinkedIn currently rolling out a native Carousel option, that’s another consideration (you can also create carousels by uploading a PDF with separate images on each page).

Check out the infographic for more.
