Especially if you’re a small biz owner, you’re probably using LinkedIn as an integral part of getting your name ‘out there.’ And if you usually post from a mobile device, you know you can save a draft of your LI message to finish, later.
However, this option wasn’t available on desktop computers. Until now.
[QW22] Saving draft posts on LinkedIn desktop
I’m a member of John Espirian’s Espresso+ group on LinkedIn, and I gotta tell ya … he’s worth my time and the membership fee. Along with helping the E+ team solve day-to-day writing and biz issues, John researches LinkedIn for us.
John provides hours of goodies for us each month, including his LinkedIn Roundup. I especially like it because its bits-n-bobs [ my Brit and Aussie buddies are wearin’ me down on the terminology 😎 ] are quick to review.
From this month’s Roundup (of August news), John has graciously provided this snippet for my readers. He showcases the new ability to save draft LI messages while working on our desktop computers. We can now start a post and finish it later.
I appreciated John’s tip about writing your text elsewhere and copying/pasting it into your LI post. I do this, even on Facebook. Not only will Grammarly check to ensure my writing is the best it can be, but I can also use the ‘Read aloud’ option in MSWord to make sure I didn’t leave anything out.
I don’t have this option yet
New LI bells and whistles don’t roll out to everyone at the same time. That’s why I asked John to provide this snippet of information. He does a better job than I could, plus I can get the info to you faster. Thanks, John!
Check out Espresso+
Feel free to check out Espresso+ by John Espirian. I am cautious about joining paid groups a.n.y.w.h.e.r.e. Are they worth it? What if I don’t need a huge amount of info about X? Are members helpful, too?
For me, this one (along with my Confident Copywriting group with Belinda Weaver) is worth it. And yes, members focus on supporting each other, too. (This is where I found the team to turn my book into the formats for Amazon.) Cool.
If you want to expand your visibility online, click here. You’ll find a bunch o’ good info – and it’s not hype – to help you make a yes/no decision about Espresso+.
No animals were hurt during the filming of this video and Kathie York received no compensation for suggesting you look into this paid LI group. Just sayin’. 😉
Thanks much to John Espirian for stepping up to the plate and providing this info. He got this to me so quickly, I moved [QW]s around and popped this one in for September … two days before post date!
