Understanding LinkedIn Personal Branding

What is a Personal Brand and Why Does it Matter?

Most people use LinkedIn only to showcase their CV and apply to jobs. So, they never use it, until they urgently need to get it to work for them to get clients or work. Don’t be like one of these people – you can get ahead by starting now and taking small steps every day that will lead to much better results. You’ll be able to get inbound leads and job offers, just from publishing valuable content! A strong personal brand on LinkedIn will draw in the right offers, business leads, partnerships, but also new friends and connections.

Leveraging LinkedIn's Community for Personal Branding

LinkedIn allows you to highlight your achievements, share your thoughts & learnings through articles and posts, and engage with other professionals and industry leaders. You can meet new people digitally and in real life by engaging with each other’s content and exchanging direct messages. It is also a platform where you can find leads or new clients for your business, although it must be noted that it is more popular for acquiring B2B clients.

Examples of Successful Personal Brands on LinkedIn

While LinkedIn is becoming more and more popular, still the majority of LinkedIn users do not actively post or engage on the platform. This is your chance to stand out! And there are a few people who you can refer to as an example. They people use every feature available on LinkedIn — from their headline to their summary, to the rich media on their profiles — to craft a compelling, cohesive personal story and connect with others.

Matt Barker

Matt teaches you how to write snappier copy that converts. He has a super down-to-earth presence online – you start feeling like you know him after reading a few of his posts. 99% of my screenshots are his posts. This says it all.

Lara Acosta

Lara is one of the best creators to follow when you’re just getting started. She helps you untangle the messiness of your LinkedIn content strategy, guides you on what effective content is, and always delivers actionable tips.

Daniel Murray

Daniel is the co-founder of Marketing Millenials & Sales Millenials. Both are newsletters and communities I adore. He loves a good meme, and regularly shares his Marketing advice in a clear, AHA-moment inducing, fun way. Also, if you’re looking to get entertained he posts great marketing related memes.

Olivia Mae Hanlon

Olivia is the founder of Girls in Marketing. She organizes marketing events and conferences, marketing internships, and posts valuable content about the state of marketing and social media. Take a look at her personal brand to get inspired.

Nick Broekema

Nick writes about content design and copywriting, as well as getting leads for your business from LinkedIn. He has mastered the art of content design, but also of repurposing content in a fresh, efficient way.

Ilze Švarcbaha

Ilze posts amazingly valuable content on her LinkedIn. She is the founder of a personal branding agency called “Not Scheduled” for B2B SaaS founders and her content is very engaging. She posts about Social Media trends, actionable tactics, and strategy.

These examples show how building a strong personal brand on LinkedIn can help you establish yourself as a thought leader, attract business opportunities, and even monetise your expertise.

In your journey to build your personal brand, consider how your content speaks to your target audience.

Ask yourself these 2 questions:

  • Is it engaging, entertaining, inspiring and/or educational?
  • Does it reflect the themes and values you stand for?

These questions are crucial to get clear on the value you provide with your content. And this idea is also embedded into the Content System that you can get below. Every time you add a new content piece, it prompts you to tag it with “educate, entertain, inspire, or engage”, for example:

Our Content Calendar for Personal Brands can help you keep track of your content, ensuring you deliver consistent and engaging posts that resonate with your audience. Let’s make your LinkedIn profile not just seen, but remembered.

Building a Strong LinkedIn Profile

Optimizing Your LinkedIn Profile for Search

To make your LinkedIn profile discoverable, it's essential to think like a search engine. Use relevant keywords throughout your profile that reflect your skills, industry, and the roles you're eyeing. But don’t start stuffing your profile with keywords. Placement matters—include them in your headline, summary, and work experience sections to improve your profile's visibility.

Here are a few examples:

  • Head of Marketing @ company
  • Founder of @ company
  • Performance Marketing Specialist
  • B2B Marketing Consultant
  • Fractional CMO | Ex-Google, Ex-Meta

Write a Short & Unique Headline: Avoid Cliché Words

Your headline is the first thing people see on LinkedIn. When you comment on a post for example, others only see your name, profile picture, and first part of your headline.

Make it count by being clear, concise, and free of overused buzzwords like "guru," "ninja," or "wizard." Instead, mention the thing you’d like to highlight. Is it the company you’re working for? What your business does? Your target audience?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Ghostwriter For Founders of B2B Tech Companies
  • Social Media Manager + Strategist
  • Social Media Marketer for NGOs
  • Transforming complex data into actionable insights that drive B2B business growth

Working on Your LinkedIn Profile Summary

Your summary is your chance to tell your story, not just list your skills. Use this space to connect the dots of your career journey, highlighting achievements and how they align with your professional goals. Write in the first person to make it more personal and engaging, and remember to weave in a few keywords naturally to keep it SEO-friendly.

Here’s a great example of a profile summary from Olivia Mae Hanlon (58k followers):

Telling Your Brand Story Using Your LinkedIn Banner

The banner behind your profile picture can serve as a billboard for your personal brand. Use this space to grab attention and communicate your personal identity visually. Whether it’s an image of you speaking at an event, a clean design with your business tagline, or something more creative, make sure it complements your story and highlights what you do clearly.

Using Your Job Descriptions to Sell Yourself

In each job description, don't just describe what you did — highlight your accomplishments and the skills you've honed. Use action verbs and numbers to paint a clear picture and make your work look more tangible. This is also a great place to include specific keywords related to your industry and expertise, for example:

  • Built the demand gen and marketing machine that generated more than 24,000 leads and grew monthly traffic from 90 monthly visitors to 21,000 monthly visitors.
  • Boosted the social media following across channels by 80%.
  • Increased the conversion rate from MQL to SQL by 25%.

Content Creation and Engagement for LinkedIn Personal Branding

Creating high-quality, authoritative content is key to building and sustaining your personal brand on LinkedIn. Share insights, write articles, and post updates that provide value to your network. This not only showcases your expertise but also keeps you relevant in the feeds of your connections.

Engage actively with your network by commenting, liking, and sharing others' posts. This helps to build connections and can increase the visibility of your own content.

Remember: consistent engagement is as important as consistent posting. Like with any social platform, it’s important to participate in the community, and have dialogues with people, not just talk at them.

As you continue to build out your profile and engage with content, don't forget to use our free Content Calendar. It's designed to help you plan and track your LinkedIn activities, ensuring you maintain a steady presence that aligns with your personal branding goals.

How Get Great at Content Creation & Engagement on LinkedIn

Create High-Quality Authoritative Content

Content is king, and on LinkedIn, this is particularly true. Your posts should not only reflect your expertise but also demonstrate your understanding of the industry. Authoritative content can range from detailed analyses of current trends to how-to guides that solve common problems. The goal is to provide value that establishes you as a go-to resource in your field.

To figure out what to write about, you need to ask yourself who are you writing for:

  • Who do you want to engage, entertain, educate or inspire with your content?
  • What would this person want to learn?
  • What problems / pain points are they facing?
  • What do you know that they might benefit from learning?


My content is for marketing managers, specifically interested in performance marketing. Because I already have over 10 years of experience in this field, I want to share what I’ve learned with other performance marketers. I will provide value by sharing helpful tools, learning resources, tutorials, and thoughts on this topic to help others develop their skills.

Leverage Carousel Posts for Visual Storytelling

Carousels are an excellent way to present information in a visually engaging, easy-to-digest format. They can be used to break down step-by-step guides, showcase multiple examples, or tell a story across several slides. Ensure each slide is impactful and leads smoothly into the next, keeping your audience engaged till the very end.

Here are 2 examples of carousels that got over 20k impressions and a lot of engagement for our Marketing Manager, Maria.

Design Eye-Catching Infographics and Cheatsheets

Infographics combine data and design to inform your audience quickly and clearly. They are particularly effective for summarizing research, visualizing data trends, or explaining complex processes. An engaging infographic can be a very powerful tool for reaching a broader audience, as they are often shared across LinkedIn and other social platforms.

Here is an example of a cheatsheet from our brand account – note that it breaks down a big topic and presents the content in a visual, digestible, but comprehensive way.

Engage Your Network with Well-Formatted Text Posts

Sometimes, simplicity wins. Text posts, especially those that do storytelling well, grab the viewer by using a strong hook (first line), asking questions or offering quick tips, can generate significant engagement and are easier to produce. Keep these posts concise and focused. Use a friendly, conversational tone that invites interaction, and don't shy away from occasional bold or controversial takes that can spark discussion. Here’s an example from a great marketer, Liz Willits:

Make an Impact with Short Videos

Video content continues to gain traction on LinkedIn. A video-only tab in the LinkedIn App is already being tested (Source).

It’s harder to embrace video content than to escape it. So, here’s how you can leverage video content:

  • Share behind-the-scenes glimpses of your work life
  • Quick tips
  • Tutorials
  • Your thoughts on the industry

Your videos don’t need fancy editing (although cutting out a few uuhhhmm’s can be beneficial and make the video more engaging, you can use a video editing tool to do so) - but do make sure that you have clear audio and good lighting.

Diversify Your Content Types

Using a mix of content types— text posts, screenshare videos, vertical videos, infographics, and carousels — keeps your profile dynamic and engaging. It demonstrates your versatility and keeps your network anticipating your next move. This variety also helps cater to different audience preferences, maximizing your reach and impact.

Host Webinars and LinkedIn Lives

Webinars offer a platform to dive deeper into topics, share your screen for live demonstrations, and interact directly with attendees. They position you as an authority and let you interact with viewers in real-time as well as building your email list, making them a great tool to grow your network and reinforce your personal brand. But, they do take much more planning than a regular post, of course.

Build Genuine Connections

Your content is only as effective as the network it reaches. Actively seek out and connect with industry peers, thought leaders, and potential mentors daily. Engage with their content thoughtfully — comment with your ideas, additional thoughts and personal takeaways: always aim to add value. This reciprocal engagement helps strengthen relationships and boosts your visibility. With the rise of AI generated content, there are many people on LinkedIn that don’t put in any thought into LinkedIn comments, which is a big mistake and can ruin your reputation. So, do engage, but in an authentic, honest manner – that’s our advice.

By adopting these strategies, you can effectively enhance your presence on LinkedIn, and make sure that your personal brand not only reaches but resonates with the right audience. Use our free Notion Content Calendar to plan your content if you want to get a head start instead of setting your whole system from scratch.

Remember, personal branding is not a "set it and forget it" — it's an ongoing process.

Plan and Produce Consistent Content

Use a Content Calendar

Using a tool like the Notion Content Calendar, plan your content strategy to stay on track - it’s a marathon, not a sprint. With time you’ll learn what content performs better than other, which topics your audience resonates with, and what to do more of. In the beginning it’s important to just start and get over the initial hurdle of hitting “publish”.

Set themes for different days of the week and decide on content types you’d like to focus on. In the beginning we suggest you start with 3 posts a week - and once you’re comfortable, you can increase that to up to 5 posts a week or more. You don’t have to always be on LinkedIn to publish your posts – feel free to schedule them in advance with a scheduling tool like Metricool, Buffer, or similar.

Here is a sneak peek of what pre scheduled content looks like in Metricool:

Note that if you’re often scheduling content, it’s easy to forget to actually go on the platform and engage with others. So, do add slots to your calendar to engage with other people's posts on Linkedin to your calendar, not to forget it completely:)

Keep a Content Ideas Backlog

The last thing you want is to write content to post on the spot, every day.

This strategy can waste a lot of your time and you might stop you from posting at all eventually. What most creators do is carve out 1 day of the week when they tackle content creation. This is the time when you can add ideas to your content backlog, draft copy for upcoming posts, schedule out the content in your scheduling tool, and design or film the visuals. This is what keeps most content creators consistent - they don’t scramble daily and ask themselves what they should post.

And with the LinkedIn Personal Brand Dashboard, you’ll easily be able to achieve the same:

Keep your Content Strategy Agile

It’s much easier to continue posting what isn’t working than to check in and face the fact that you need to invest in figuring out a new way.

Regularly ask yourselves these questions when you’re building a personal brand on LinkedIn, to ensure your growth doesn’t stall:

  • Is my content reaching the right people?
  • Are people engaging with my content? If not, why? If yes, when?
  • Which content gets more impressions than other content?
  • What goals do I have with this personal brand account?
  • Am I coming closer to reaching these goals with my current content strategy?
  • How can I make the next post 0.1% better than the one before it?

LinkedIn analytics or the analytics tab of your favorite scheduling tool can provide valuable insights into what's working and what isn't. Use this data to refine your strategies and experiment with new ideas. Being responsive to feedback and adaptable to changes in the industry and what you’re seeing in your analytics will help your account thrive.

Tools for Your LinkedIn Personal Branding Journey

  • Notion: A well-organized content calendar is key for any successful LinkedIn personal brand. Using Notion, you can create a calendar that includes post types, themes, and an ideas backlog.

A systematic approach prevents last-minute scrambles for content and keeps your content top notch.

Notion Content Calendar Example of a Personal Brand

To give you a concrete example, here’s the filled out Notion Content Calendar of our Marketing Manager’s personal brand’s account. She prefers using the calendar view to plan out the content in a visual way and tries to post once a day - with some posts being very short polls, memes or text posts, to engage and entertain her target audience. She tends to set a general theme for each day of the week like “Educate” on Mondays and Wednesdays, which makes content planning much easier. This setup allows her to visualise her content over weeks or months, and adjust quickly.

Time-Saving Hacks: Best Tips to Save Time on LinkedIn

To make the most of your time on LinkedIn, focus on these things:

  • Batch create content: Spend a day planning and creating content for the week or month ahead.
  • Use templates: Develop templates for posts and responses to common inquiries or comments.
  • Leverage analytics: Regularly check analytics to focus your efforts on the most effective types of posts.
  • Set time limits: Allocate specific times for LinkedIn activities to avoid getting sidetracked.
  • Use Content Templates: You can ask ChatGPT or Gemini AI to turn any post into a template and then can fill it out with a new topic. This can really save you time and make your posts perform better if you use already tried-and-true post structures. Here’s how:

Set Content Pillars per Day of the Week

Assigning specific themes or content pillars to different days can help organize your posting schedule and keep your audience engaged. For instance:

  • Tutorial Monday: Educate your audience on how to do something related to your niche.
  • Trend Tuesday: Latest trends and tools in marketing
  • Story Wednesday: Reflect on your entrepreneurial journey and what you’ve learned.
  • Throwback Thursday: Past projects or achievements, results for clients.
  • Feature Friday: Highlight collaborations or client stories.

Create an Engaging Content Series

Developing content series is an effective way to keep your audience coming back for more. These can be weekly tips, monthly in-depth articles, or regular case studies. A series not only builds a narrative over time but also establishes you as a consistent presence in your followers' feeds.

Curating Content and Tagging People

Curating content from other thought leaders or relevant industries can provide additional value to your audience. When you share others’ content, make sure to add your insights or takeaways. Tagging the original author or relevant contributors not only acknowledges their work but also encourages engagement. Here is an example of a curation post:

You can make it a habit to have these posts as part of your content strategy by assigning this theme – Content Curation – a day of the week. You can do this easily using our Content Calendar:
