How to create a LinkedIn business page

More and more businesses are actively participating on social networks. However, LinkedIn is the most relevant for companies that are mainly focused on the professional world.

Therefore, we are going to explain how to make a place on LinkedIn for your company step by step:

  1. Access your LinkedIn profile or the one that you are planning to have as administrator of the page you are about to create.
  2. Once in the account, click the work tab represented by an icon with several little squares in the top-right corner of your homepage.

 

3. Click Create a Company Page in the menu

 

 

4. Now it’s time to create your page. Add your Company name and a URL to find your page on LinkedIn. You must check the verification box to confirm that you have the right to act on behalf of the company.

 

Company Page URL:

  • It must include at least one non-numeric character
  • It can include lowercase letters, numbers, hyphens and Unicode characters in Japanese, Korean or Chinese.
  • However, hyphens can’t be added at the beginning or the end of the URL. The hyphens can’t be consecutive either.

CAUTION! Any character that is not allowed by the platform will be automatically replaced with a hyphen.

 

 

LinkedIn will ask you for other additional data such as:

  • Type of business
  • Company size (number of employees)
  • Main sector
  • Year of creation

 

Click the Create Page button and get started!

 

 

Once you have created a Company Page, you must start editing it:

  • Add a profile picture: The company’s logo or an image that helps the public to recognize your business.
  • Upload a cover image: You can find a complete updated guide about the right dimensions of your LinkedIn images here
  • Include a company description: if someone clicks on your company, this will help them to understand what your business does. It can contain between 250 and 2,000 characters.
