If you’ve created a newsletter on MailChimp and sent it out then it’s a good idea to also share it on LinkedIn. This will put the content in front of more viewers and potentially gain you more subscribers as well.

So how do you do it?

  1. Go into the Campaigns section of MailChimp and on the email you’ve sent out click on the menu and select “social share”
  2. Copy the Campaign URL:
  3. Open LinkedIn, and you main news feed you should see a box where it says “Share an article, photo, video or idea”
  4. Enter a suitable introductory message and perhaps an encouragement for your connections to subscribe for the future and then click post. LinkedIn will automatically create a preview of the newsletter with an image taken from the newsletter.

Don’t just limit it to LinkedIn though, if you have company accounts on Facebook and Twitter and if you have a work element to your personal accounts share on there also. You may find you get more views from social sharing than from sending!
