Share Plugin

By using the Share plugin, you are able to leverage LinkedIn's professional audience to drive traffic to your site.

Why use the LinkedIn Share plugin?

  1. Professionals tend to be highly engaged readers who like to share meaningful articles with their networks. Make it seamless and easy for them with the inShare button.
  2. When people share your content, it will be added to the LinkedIn ecosystem. Articles in this ecosystem are shown to targeted users who are interested in this type of content -- leading to more traffic to your site from an engaged, influential audience. For example, look at the success Business Insider has had with Share and their discussion on the secret of LinkedIn Share.

We encourage you to include the LinkedIn share button on any web page that you want your visitors to share with their professional network.
