Switching to LinkedIn Creator Mode

The Visibility Boost You’ve Been Missing

Have you ever felt invisible on LinkedIn? If you’re struggling to get your content noticed, there’s a simple solution that will increase your reach by 15-35%: Activating LinkedIn Creator Mode.

I’ve helped 100’s of thought leaders, c-suite executives, directors, founders, managers, editors, sales professionals, and social media executives make the switch. Not one of them has switched back.

Why Make the Switch?

  1. It’s Free: There’s no cost involved in activating Creator Mode.
  2. New Features: Gain access to a suite of new, user-friendly, essential features.
  3. Flexibility: You can always switch back if it’s not to your liking.
  4. Increased Reach: Users with Creator Mode enabled see an average increase in reach of 15 – 35%.

Misconceptions About Creator Mode

From the name, you might think Creator Mode is only for graphic designers and videographers… people that make posh content using expensive kit. Absolutely not!

UPDATE: Early December 2023 – LinkedIn recognised this by renaming/rebranding from LinkedIn Creators to LinkedIn Guide to Creating.

Every post you have already published is defined as ‘content’ by LinkedIn. Like it or not that makes you a ‘creator’. Welcome aboard!

Making the switch to Creator Mode unlocks new features and new personal analytics. You can carry on doing exactly the same type of post afterwards but with 15-35% more reach.

What You Won’t Lose

  • Professional Profile: Keep your professional standing, job search capabilities, and job recommendations.
  • Networking Opportunities: Continue expanding your network, engaging in group discussions, and interacting with content.

My Favorite Features in Creator Mode

Some of these features have Access Criteria that include:

  • An audience base of more than 150 followers and/or connections.
  • Recent shares on LinkedIn of any type of original content (including short form posts, images, videos, events, polls, and articles). 
  • A history of abiding by LinkedIn’s Professional Community Policies and a good standing record on LinkedIn.

Here are my favourites:

  • Follow Button: This makes it easier for people to follow you without becoming a connection. Your current connections automatically become followers.

  • LinkedIn Articles: Share long-form content to provide in-depth insights and showcase your industry expertise.
  • LinkedIn Video: Engage your audience with educational, behind-the-scenes, or interview-style videos.
  • Analytics: Access detailed analytics for your content, including views, engagement, and audience demographics.

List Your Services On Your Profile

This is a cracking feature for freelancers and side hustlers. Add your services and they’ll be listed at the top of your profile. Makes it easy to generate leads/receive enquiries.


Features I Haven’t Used Yet

  • LinkedIn Live Video: Broadcast live video content like webinars, Q&A sessions, and presentations.
  • LinkedIn Audio Events: Broadcast Live Audio content in a similar way.
