How to add video to your LinkedIn profile in less than one minute

Financial advisers can enhance their LinkedIn profile with video in less than one minute.

Now that LinkedIn rolled out its new profile design to all users, I’ve had a chance to explore some of the new features financial advisers may find of interest.

UPDATE 01/08/2013: According to LinkedIn, this feature HAS NOT been rolled out to all profiles. So if your profile doesn’t offer the ability to add video, be patient and check it again each week.

One of the best new features is the ability to easily add video content to your existing profile.

All you need is the URL of a video hosted on one of the many popular video sites, including YouTube, Vimeo, and Wistia. Find out where that URL needs to be added in your LinkedIn profile in the one minute screencast embedded below.

    When I insert you tube video link ( ) and fill out title & Description, then push save button,… nothing happens… Is there a reason why ?

      Hmm, I’m not really sure why you’re experiencing problems with the video embedding. Has LinkedIn support offered any suggestions?
