Linkedin is a popular job searching website, people use them to put themselves out there in the professional field and put every bit of information they have in order to get noticed.

Adding videos to your profile along with your business information on your profile is a good combo towards generating clients or potential customers for your business.
2. Using other social media websites
Now that you have optimized your Linkedin profile, you can now use other social media websites to direct traffic to your Linkedin profile. You can use Youtube to upload your videos and post your videos to other websites with links directing to your profile in Linkedin.
3. Using your videos in the Linkedin Community
There are a lot of interesting groups that you can find on Linkedin, sometimes some of these groups are within your industry or business. You can take advantage of these groups by starting discussions with the other members and posting your video content there as well. Pasting your video links on the discussions is a good way to get noticed. Always make sure that you don't include irrelevant videos in someone else’s discussion because it might cause you problems. Being active in groups can help you establish yourself as an industry leader and using videos is a good way for people to know that you are a human and not a bot.
