How to add a Cover Story Video

When you have access to the Cover Story feature, it will show up on your personal profile Introductory Card with this message:

‘introduce yourself with a 30-second video”

You can add the video directly from your mobile app.

Click on View Profile and click on your profile photo.

At the bottom of the screen, you will be invited to create your cover story. This works in the same way as a video post.

Record a 30 second video of yourself speaking into the camera.

Top Tip – prepare what you want to say in advance. The purpose of this is to introduce people to you. If you are a job seeker, talk about your career aspirations and skills. As a small business owner, I share what services I offer and who I work with.

Once you have recorded your clip, you can add text and/or sticker overlays onto your video.

If you want to go one step further, you can create the video using some software and upload the 30 second clip once you are happy with it.

Cover Stories are also part of the new LinkedIn Creator profile
