Basics of Tagging LinkedIn
Members
By Teddy Burriss / LinkedIn Coach & Trainer
Burriss Consulting, Inc - LinkedIn Training and Coaching www.burrissconsulting.com
Why use @tagging on LinkedIn?
1. Mentioning LinkedIn Members pulls the right people into the conversation.
2. Mentioning LinkedIn Members helps to get your posts more views/reach.
3. Mentioning LinkedIn Members helps the member to get recognition.
4. Mentioning Companies helps the company get acknowledgement / recognition.

Top 6 ways to Mention a LinkedIn Member
1. In a LinkedIn Post.
2. In a comment on a Post
3. In a comment on a LinkedIn Article
4. In a comment on a LinkedIn Event
5. In a LinkedIn Message (for reference only, they do not get a notification they were tagged).
6. In a LinkedIn Group Comment or Post, if the LinkedIn Member is a member of the group.

Best Practices for Mentioning LinkedIn Members
Part 1
1. Use the first word of their company name to tag popular names like “James Smith".
2. Type the name in slowly after the “@“ symbol. Sometimes you do not need to type the entire
name to find the person you are trying to tag.
3. When tagging a company try using their LinkedIn URL Handle if the Company name is not
working.
4. Don’t tag obsessively. LinkedIn frowns on users who tag too many people in a post or
comment.
5. I recommend limiting your tagging to <10 LinkedIn Members and/or companies.
6. You can backspace out the last name and/or former name when tagging.

Best Practices for Mentioning LinkedIn Members
Part 2
1. You tag someone with their entire name, first name or last name.
2. You can edit a post or comment and adjust the tag after posting.
3. For a cleaner tag, backspace out all of the certs some people put on the end of their names,
(John Smith CPA, ABC, XYZ, PMP, CIM, Moo)
4. When tagging a LinkedIn Member ask yourself, will they appreciate I mentioned them. If not,
don’t.
5. If you get mentioned in a post or comment, you can remove the mention.
