81 LinkedIn Post Hook Ideas

People scroll LinkedIn for inspiration and information.

Their attention spans are short.

They're in a hurry.

You're competing for their attention in a cacophony of noise.

They scan, skim, and scroll.

Your job is to stop the scroll.

Here's my initial swipe file of hook ideas that I'm curating from various sources. As this list grows, some will be my originals, and I'll give attribution for others' work where appropriate. 

This initial list I actually received from Ryan Musselman on LinkedIn. More to come.

You can also find inspiration from my post on the 100 greatest headlines ever written.
