When you're finished with your Biteable video and you want to share it with LinkedIn, we've found the most effective approach is to upload. LinkedIn's algorithms prioritize native video (video that is directly uploaded to LinkedIn). Native videos autoplay in the feed on desktop which is more likely to grab attention. A custom thumbnail ensures those on mobile are attracted to hit play. Here's how to do it.
First, let's get your Biteable video download and thumbnail ready:
Download your Biteable video from the Export page.
On your Biteable video preview, navigate to the part of the video you want as your thumbnail.
Pause the video where you want the thumbnail and take a screenshot. To make a screen capture on a PC, use the Windows Snipping Tool. For Mac users, hit Command+Shift+4 to select the part of your screen you want to capture.
Save the image onto your desktop.
Next, let's upload to Linkedin:
Visit Linkedin.com and click "Share an article, photo, video or idea".
Click the video icon.
Upload the Biteable video you just downloaded.
Add a title to your video.
Click "Select Thumbnail" to upload your custom thumbnail from your desktop.
Write a caption / clever post and add hashtags.
Your video should now be visible on LinkedIn. Remember to respond to all comments for maximum engagement.
