How I used LinkedIn to promote my cut-throat corporate board game

I posted about stabbing your coworkers on my LinkedIn feed

Did you know LinkedIn has a newsfeed? I don’t really use it but taking a quick look at it, it seems like it’s mostly people congratulating each other on work-related wins. I have a work-related win—why shouldn’t I post about it?

The post I made on my LinkedIn page.
My ex-managers from my old corporate life.
Funny little comment from a colleague.

I updated my profile to include my cut-throat board game

This one kinda speaks for itself. I added a small blurb about myself under my name and wrote a few lines in the “about” section.

My LinkedIn profile.

People started sharing my story!

I thought it was crazy how I literally made a board game about stabbing your coworkers in the back but the LinkedIn community ate it up.
