Improved notifications for subscribers

Subscribers will receive email and in-app notifications when you publish a new newsletter. LinkedIn will also prompt followers to subscribe to your newsletter to help drive readership.

Embed LinkedIn profile and page links in article

You can now embed LinkedIn member profiles and pages directly into your newsletter articles. This makes it easy for readers to click straight through to individuals or companies you reference.

Staging links

This feature allows you to view an article’s URL before you publish, for better cross-platform sharing of your content. It’s being rolled out in the next few weeks.
