These People Make Awesome LinkedIn Videos

LinkedIn video is pretty new. It’s not like everyone is posting videos of themselves to LinkedIn yet. It’s a big opportunity to connect with people instantly and grow your brand.

I wanted to find examples of people who use LinkedIn video and really rock it! But… I googled it and nothing came up on the first page of results. Nobody had curated a list of people yet.

So, I did a little digging.

I found a few examples of LinkedIn professionals who use video really well. If this is helpful to you, please comment and let me know!

People who rock at LinkedIn video:

1. The Editor-in-Chief of WIRED, Nicholas Thompson, posted a 49-second video to discuss a new article on WIRED. Watch it here.

It rocks because:

  • He drives traffic to a WIRED article
  • You can tell he just propped up his smartphone to film it – easy!
  • He tells a story! It’s interesting to listen to! An amazing teaser for the article he’s pushing people towards.

2. Entrepreneur Naomi Simson posted a 23-second video to discuss a topic and ask viewers to join the discussion. Watch it here.

 It rocks because:

  • He uses video to announce something big for his brand: his new Facebook page!
  • He is taking a selfie video and it’s quite casual – however, the video quality is still top notch! You can be casual, but you still have to have super video quality.
  • 31,151 views. Damn!

4. Goldie Chan posts a video every DAY on LinkedIn! She posts on all kinds of topics.

It rocks because:

  • She uses her iPhone to shoot and edit!
  • Goldie always finds something to say. She is proof that you CAN make a video every day, even if you think you have nothing to say!
  • It’s not just about green hair. She is informative, friendly, and warm on camera!


That’s all for now! Do you know anyone I can add to this list? Please comment!
