The term “thought leader” gets a lot of people into a flap. Some grumble it should be saved for only the most well-recognised voices. The Seth Godins and Simon Sineks of this world.
Personally, I couldn’t give two hoots what you call it.
If you are someone with ideas, new perspectives to share, even old perspectives with a new twist, I say you’re a thought leader (and also my favourite kind of person to write content for).
But simply having ideas isn’t enough.
You need to get your ideas out there. And one of the best ways to do that is by writing LinkedIn articles.
The problem is, finding time among endless meetings and high-pressure decisions to get your thoughts down onto paper is a stretch for many. Hiring someone to write a LinkedIn article for you is a solution many thought leaders are looking to.
