When you're finished with your Biteable video and you want to share it with LinkedIn, we've found the best approach is not as obvious as it may seem. LinkedIn's algorithms prioritize native video, or video that is directly uploaded to LinkedIn. It autoplays in feed which is more likely to grab attention, and we want your video to grab attention! So, we have provided direction on how to upload your Biteable video to LinkedIn and how to upload your own thumbnail. Below are the steps we recommend:
First, let's get your Biteable video download and thumbnail ready:
Download your Biteable video from the Export page
