How to Create a Linkedin Company Page

Creating a LinkedIn Company Page can help your business gain exposure, attract top talent, and engage with an extensive professional network. The process is fairly straightforward, but there are certain considerations and steps to ensure that your company page is effective and engaging. Below is a detailed step-by-step guide to creating a LinkedIn Company Page.

1. Log in to LinkedIn

You must have a personal LinkedIn account to create a LinkedIn Company Page. Log into your LinkedIn account or create a new one if you haven’t done so already.

2. Click on the ‘For Business’ Icon

On the right side of the toolbar at the top of your LinkedIn homepage, click on the ‘For Business’ icon. It looks like a small grid of nine squares. A drop-down menu will appear.

4. Enter Your Company Information

You will need to fill in the following fields:

  • Page Identity: Add your company name and choose a URL. This URL will be what you share with people to bring them to your company page. It should be unique to your company and easy to remember.
  • Company Details: Here, you’ll add your website URL, the industry your company operates in, the size of your company, and your company type (public, non-profit, etc.).
  • Profile Details: This is where you will upload your logo and tagline. Your logo also appears on your employees’ profiles. Ensure that it’s square and at least 300 x 300 pixels. The tagline is a brief statement about your company.

5. Optimize Your Page

This involves filling in the ‘About us’ section. Make sure you use keywords that potential clients or customers might use when searching for your product or service. This section should include what your company does, its vision, mission, values, and any other information that you think would be helpful for people visiting your page.

6. Add Specialties

This is another area where you can include keywords. List all the things that your company specializes in, that you want to be known and discovered for.

7. Confirm Your Page

Before your page can be published, LinkedIn requires that you confirm that you have the right to act on behalf of the company in the creation of the page. Check the verification box, then click ‘Create page’.

8. Publish Your Page

Once you’re satisfied with the information you’ve provided and have checked the verification box, click ‘Publish’. Your page is now live!

9. Post Regular Updates

After your page is live, you’ll want to start gaining followers. An effective way to do this is by posting regular updates that provide value to your audience. This could be industry news, company updates, blog posts, or helpful articles.

10. Use Images and Videos

A page full of text can be overwhelming. Use images and videos to break up the text and make your page more engaging. You can also add a cover photo to your page to give it a more professional look.

11. Invite Connections to Follow

LinkedIn allows you to invite your personal connections to follow your company page. Take advantage of this feature to kickstart your follower count.

12. Add Featured Groups

If your company is associated with any LinkedIn Groups, you can add these to your company page. This will provide a way for people to engage with your company on a deeper level.

13. Monitor Analytics

LinkedIn provides analytics for company pages. Here, you can see how your posts are performing, the demographics of your followers, and how your page is growing over time. Use this information to adjust your LinkedIn strategy and make your page more effective.
