How to Use LinkedIn Stories to Grow Your MLM Biz

If you want to stand out and get your message out to more people...

You need to take advantage of the all new LinkedIn Stories feature.

Stories have now rolled out to all LinkedIn members and page owners in the US and Canada.  

They are gradually rolling out to members in these countries:

  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • France
  • the Netherlands
  • the UAE

If you don't have stories available to you now, LinkedIn is saying to check back every couple of weeks.

Stories on LinkedIn can only be created and seen on the mobile app.

Just like with Facebook, stories are only visible for 24 hours.

Stories can be images or video. Your video can be up to 9 minutes and 59 seconds long.

To Create a Story:

  1. Go to your LinkedIn homepage on the mobile app.
  2. Click on the + sign on your profile picture to add "Your Story".
  3. Upload the image or photo you want to use, or record a video.

Stories can not be edited once they're created. They can only be deleted and reposted.

To Share Your Story:

You can share your story, or someone else's story, with your 1st degree connections via LinkedIn messaging.

WARNING: Your story will automatically expire after 24 hours, so if your connection doesn't see your message in that time period it will be gone.

  1. Go to your LinkedIn homepage on the mobile app.
  2. From the Stories bar at the top, tap on your profile photo.
  3. From the story you want to share, tap the 3 vertical dots in the top right corner of your story post.
  4. From the pop-up menu, choose "Send in a private message".
  5. Type the name or names of the people you'd like to send your story to, or find them in the list of connections that comes up and tap on their name in the list to add them to the list of who is going to get your story in a message. You can add a message if you like.
  6. Hit the SEND arrow icon in the lower right corner of your story.

To View a Story:

  1. Go to your LinkedIn homepage on the mobile app.
  2. From the Stories section at the top, tap the Profile photo icon you’d like to view.
  • You can view your own Stories or those posted by a connection or a Page that you follow.
  • If the profile has more than one post within their Story, you can tap the right of your screen to view the next post.

Use Stories to:

  • Announce something new
  • Give a quick update
  • Celebrate an achievement
  • Congratulate someone
  • Present an powerful infographic
  • Peak interest
  • Stand out.

NOTE: You can't put a link in stories, however your prospect can direct message you from a story.

Celebrating Your Success!
