LinkedIn is introducing a new way to increase website traffic by including clickable links in photos.

LinkedIn is rolling out a new feature that permits users to add external links to photos shared in posts.

This gives you another opportunity to drive traffic to your website from your LinkedIn Company Page or personal profile.

Geri Silver, Content Manager at LinkedIn, shared an example of a new link sticker. In the screenshot below you can see how a link can be added to each photo:

Influencer marketing specialist Lindsey Gamble shared some screenshots of LinkedIn’s new feature on Twitter. Link stickers can vary in size and can even be placed over the video:

There doesn’t seem to be much variation in the design of the link sticker, although the linked text can be customized. You can always add multiple emojis to avoid stickers with the same general look on all of them.

Availability And Usage Details

You can add link stickers to your photos and videos using the posting tool in the LinkedIn mobile app.

You cannot add a link sticker from the desktop interface. However, users on each platform can view and click on the link when viewing posts on their channel.

The 1Link sticker will roll out to users in stages, meaning some people will have access to the sticker before others.

If you have permission to use it, you’ll see a button with a chain link icon when you create a post on the LinkedIn mobile app.
