LinkedIn is a popular networking site for all professionals and has been working towards adding new features for the betterment of all. Recently, the social networking platform has also announced that it will allow subscribers to host and attend audio events, which is currently in the beta phase. To create an audio event, a member has to go to the Events tab on your LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn will allow members to schedule an audio event, invite other members or friends in their network, and start streaming with one click once attendees join. One can host an event by clicking the ‘Schedule a Live Event’ button and using either their phone or computer microphone for it. With this all-new addition, the chances of getting access to more professional experts are quite high as one can join an informal chat or listen in on interviews hosted by influencers before they launch their new books or online courses. Audio events are similar to live video events in many regards as they offer both speakers and attendees the same interactive experience that enhances learning opportunities across the globe. While LinkedIn’s premium subscribers can view live video and audio events from anywhere in the world on any device that supports LinkedIn’s mobile app or website; basic users must have a smartphone or tablet for this purpose. LinkedIn’s new audio feature is available for free for all its premium and basic subscribers, meaning people can now tap into this amazing new feature from anywhere in the world!
Events Tab on LinkedIn Profile
To create an audio event, a member has to go to the Events tab on your LinkedIn profile. Then click on the Schedule a live event button, which will take you to another page that asks for the time and date of your event, as well as its title and description. From there, you can select who would be able to see this event (the default being everyone), add an optional link so people know where they can find more information about it, then click “Next” and finally confirm everything before hitting “Create Event.”
If you don’t have enough followers yet but want to start creating these kinds of events anyway, LinkedIn has made it easy for people who want to start their podcast or YouTube channel by offering them opportunities for promotion.
LinkedIn will Allow Members to Schedule an Audio Event
LinkedIn will allow members to schedule an audio event, allowing them to be more engaged with the network when they’re not at their desk. Users can now go through a process that allows them to schedule an event and then share it on LinkedIn for others to see. These events are open for up to 30 days and use a calendar within the app so attendees don’t have any trouble keeping track of where they need to be.
If you’d like people interested in your business or product but aren’t sure how you can connect with them until now, then this is great news! Now when someone goes on LinkedIn looking for information about something specific, they’ll easily find what they’re looking for without having any trouble navigating through different pages and trying different things that might lead somewhere useful because there’s no way around taking action now anyway (unless maybe if they’re just checking their email).
All-new Addition and More Professional Experts
LinkedIn has a variety of ways for people to connect, and one of them is the ability to find experts in any particular field. This can be helpful in many situations, from finding an expert in your field who could help you with a project or give some advice on how it’s done, to reaching out to someone who might be able to help you transition into another industry or trade.
As LinkedIn users become more accustomed to using this service as a way of networking with peers and colleagues both within the company or organization where they work and outside it, we expect that people will begin searching for experts on LinkedIn. For instance, if you need some advice about writing blog posts for your business website but don’t know anyone who does this professionally yet (or aren’t aware that there are other writers out there), then going straight into Google search results may not necessarily get you what you want either fast enough nor efficiently enough; but if instead someone were looking specifically for someone like me based on keywords from my profile which matched his interests (which would likely include “writing articles” since I’ve listed it twice), then he’d probably come across my page pretty quickly!
Audio Events are Similar to Live Video Events in Many Regards
Audio events are similar to live video events in many respects. They’re living, so you can listen as they happen and then replay them later if necessary. The host is visible on the screen and can interact with listeners by typing questions or comments into chat boxes (which appear on your screen). And some hosts may choose to share elements of their screen during an audio event, just as they would during a live video event.
Audio events also have some key differences:
- Audio events don’t require a camera or any special equipment just your mobile device or laptop’s built-in microphone.
- If there are multiple hosts involved in an audio event (for example, two people interviewing each other), only one person needs to be visible at all times while the other hosts are off-camera but still audible. In this case, it’s best if you use headphones so that others won’t be distracted by both voices coming through their speakers simultaneously!
‘Schedule a Live Event’
Now that you have the basics down, let’s get into the nitty-gritty. First of all, you can host an event by clicking on the ‘Schedule a Live Event’ button and using either your phone or computer microphone for it. Once the event is created, you can access it from anywhere in the world by logging into your Facebook profile and going to ‘Events’. If someone wishes to join your event, they will be given an option to do so by connecting with Facebook Messenger (available on mobile only). Once connected via Messenger with a user who has joined an audio recording session on Facebook Live, both users will hear each other’s voices clearly over their phones as long as both devices have sound turned on.
LinkedIn’s New Audio Feature
If you’re a LinkedIn user, this is great news for you! You can now listen to your favorite podcasts and audiobooks on the platform.
LinkedIn’s new audio feature is available for free for all its premium and basic subscribers. Audio events are also available for free to users with a LinkedIn account, regardless of whether they have a premium subscription or not.
