Is your content well written? Who could you hire to help make it better? How much does proofreading cost? Where can you find someone with the right skills? Plenty of questions. Let’s take a look.

It’s so annoying when the LinkedIn notification counter lights up and then you find that it’s just a message that one of your posts has received 50 or 100 views. Once you build up a lot of connections, most of your posts are going to trigger this notification.
Here’s how to turn off these notifications via the LinkedIn mobile app:
