What is it, I hear you ask?
Well, Creator Mode was established in 2021 and is a setting designed to encourage users to post more of their own content. It provides LinkedIn’s 900 million users with new ways to grow their following and increase engagement by displaying their original content more prominently.
LinkedIn is now a worldwide medium of industry news, business advice and a place to engage with fellow professionals. The introduction of Creator Mode is another evolutionary step in the platform’s development.
In 2023, more than 5.5 million people across the globe are using LinkedIn Creator Mode to connect with their audiences on a daily basis, establish their voice, unveil new opportunities and build an audience.
But how can law firms maximise the opportunities that LinkedIn Creator Mode brings, and is switching your setting the right move for you?
Let’s take a look under the hood. What exactly is Creator Mode?
In a nutshell, Creator Mode is a profile setting on your dashboard that will help you increase your number of followers and build your brand. It also gives you greater visibility, which will help you to get discovered.
When you turn on Creator Mode, LinkedIn optimises your profile for publishing content.
Before the LinkedIn bods introduced Creator Mode, your content would primarily be put in front of your connections, unless someone in your list of connections reposted or shared it with their network.
With Creator Mode enabled, your content will increasingly be visible to people interested in the topic, which means that your articles and posts will be more visible to LinkedIn users, no matter whether they’re connections of yours or complete strangers to you.
You’ll also be able to see insights about your readership, including who’s reading your content and how often they’re engaging with it.
How do I turn on Creator Mode?
To turn on Creator Mode, simply go to your profile page and it will show up in your dashboard. Then:
- Click the Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage
- Click View Profile
- Click on Creator Mode under Your dashboard
- Click Next on the preview pop-up window
- Add topics (hashtags) to indicate the topics you post about the most.
And that’s it! If you struggle at any point with turning this on, please contact us.
