How To Embed A YouTube Video In LinkedIn Blog Post

LinkedIn is a great marketing tool, especially for those who are in the business to business vertical.

In order to embed a YouTube video into a LinkedIn blog, the first thing you need to do is log into LinkedIn. Make sure you’re on the home section and you’ll see this little orange button here that says, “Publish a post.” Once you get to the publish post page you can add an image, which I highly recommend you do, incorporate your title and right here it says, “Add rich media.”

Now, where do you get this rich media? Well, you need to go to the actual YouTube page that you want to share. From here we click “Share embed” and this piece of code right here, we just need to highlight, copy, go back, click on the “Embed code,” paste it in there and then click “Add media”.

Now this video is in here and I can add additional text. And that’s how you embed a YouTube video into a LinkedIn blog post.
