LinkedIn Tips: How to Become a LinkedIn Top Voice

Updated: Apr 6

Are you looking to become recognised by LinkedIn as THE go-to person in your space?

Collaborative articles are a great way to earn a LinkedIn Top Voice Badge.

LinkedIn has created special pages where you can browse, interact and comment on collaborative articles sorted by professional skills.

Follow the pages in the skills list below that interest you and get notified about new collaborative articles as they are published and add insightful contributions.

By consistently offering valuable input, you may earn a Community Top Voice badge (e.g., “Top Engineering Voice”) as recognition for being a highly insightful contributor to collaborative articles within a particular skill.

You can even earn badges for multiple skills and these will be combined into one badge on your LinkedIn profile. Currently, there is no limit to the number of skills for which you can earn a badge. In order to keep the badge beyond 60 days, your contributions must remain relevant and original, and other LinkedIn members must continue to find your contributions within that particular skill set insightful.

3) Be Unique

LinkedIn wants to know your unique perspective, so reference your past experience and personal thoughts to make your contribution stand out.

4) Acknowledge others

Like and react to what the other contributors are saying!

5) Be Consistent

Keep it up! This isn’t going to happen overnight. So consistently add your perspective and continue to interact.

6) Tell everyone

In order to keep the badge beyond 60 days, your contributions must remain relevant and original, and other LinkedIn members must continue to find your contributions within that particular skill set insightful.

7) Keep it

Once you’ve earned your badge, shout it from the rooftops, put it on your CV and do a LinkedIn post about it!


Good luck and let me know how you get on!
