🚨 Featured #LinkedInQuestion 🚨: How do you add a video to your headshot on your LinkedIn profile?


  1. Go to the LinkedIn mobile app on your phone. Make sure you have the latest version of the app on your phone.
  2. Navigate to go to your LinkedIn profile. I click on my headshot photo in the upper left when I open up the app.
  3. Click on your headshot photo. This is where you'll access the area to upload your video.
  4. You should see an option "Upload profile video" (or if you already have one, "View or edit profile video")
  5. Upload a video of under 30 seconds. PRO TIP: this will cut off at about 26 seconds on some mobile apps, so I recommend your duration be 25 seconds or less. Also keep in mind that the first 3 seconds appear as a preview when people visit your profile.



  • I recommend using the Clips app to record your video if you have an iPhone. You can record yourself and then add in burned-in captions to your video.
  • Make sure you are looking at the camera when you record your message.
  • Imagine yourself talking to ONE person and that person is your ideal target audience.
  • If you seem stiff in the video, re-record it. Make it engaging and personable!
