I get most of my business from LinkedIn, which means I spent a lot of my client acquisition time on LinkedIn.
By doing a lot of experiments, I found out that on days, when I click on
LinkedIn ads, I seemed to be getting more reach for my posts.
Is that a coincidence? I thought.
So, I started monitoring patterns on LinkedIn and found that there is indeed a connection between clicking ads and the reach of your posts.

Every time, you login to LinkedIn, click on a few ads to get the LinkedIn algo on your side and then keep doing your regular thing.
Which is posting good content, sharing insights and creating thought provoking articles that make your target audience sit-up and take note of your work.

What is surprising with Eleni, is that she is a lawyer too but her fun personality comes through quickly.
Let’s close off with Ian’s profile, which is very matter of fact. What do you think of these 3 profiles, which one did you like best?
