How to create a carousel on LinkedIn?

The carousel (pronounced “carouzel”, not “carrousel”) is the format of the moment! It can be found on various social networks and in particular on LinkedIn. 

It is the ideal medium for creating content, presenting products or services, sharing tips or highlighting customer testimonials. 

But let's start at the beginning: what is a carousel? 🤔

The LinkedIn carousel: definition

The LinkedIn carousel is a posting format that allows you to post multiple images in a single post. 

Unlike traditional publications where you can only publish a single image, it is possible with the carousel to illustrate your words as you wish, with an infinite number of slides (as long as you do not exceed the maximum recommended size).

This publication format is very popular on LinkedIn because it allows you to diversify the content and attract the attention of the audience in a more fun and interactive way. In addition, if you manage to attract attention and generate swipes, the LinkedIn algorithm will judge your post to be relevant and highlight it on the news feed.

Why post a carousel on LinkedIn? 

It’s not for nothing that carousels are omnipresent on Linkedin. They have different advantages: 

  • With the carousel, you can share a story or a series of images that will hold your audience's attention longer than a simple post.

  • The LinkedIn carousel allows you to diversify your content using different formats like images, text or infographics. This can make your profile more interesting and attractive.

  • You can use the LinkedIn carousel to share tips, tricks, or even tutorials to showcase your expertise.

  • By offering original and engaging content, you can increase your visibility on the platform and thus strengthen your online presence.

  • By adding interactive elements like quizzes or surveys, you can encourage your audience to interact with your content and thus boost engagement on your LinkedIn post.
