It seems as if just about every social media platform has responded to the video-first world we’re living in.

Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat — everyone is going video first to keep giving their users what they want.

But one platform is limping in late to the party, and it’s time to call them out.

LinkedIn is just now adding native video to their platform, which is a sign to me that most businesses still don’t fully understand the impact that video has on your bottom line.

But even though they’re about three years late to the party, LinkedIn’s new video update includes some interesting features that businesses should pay close attention to (which keeps me interested for now).

From LinkedIn’s new native video feature to the latest news that matters to video marketers, it’s all going down in this week’s episode!
