[Publish] How to connect a LinkedIn Company or Showcase Page

Permissions

In order to connect a LinkedIn Page to your Buffer Publish account, we'll need to authenticate through your personal LinkedIn Profile that has administrative privileges on the Page you're looking to connect. Learn more about LinkedIn Page Roles here. Whilst we authenticate your LinkedIn Pages through your personal Profile, we won't access your personal information or publish content on your Profile.

How to connect your LinkedIn Company or Showcase Page

LinkedIn Pages are connected in the same way as connecting other social accounts, with the additional step of selecting the Page you'd like to connect. We've found the quickest way is to first log into your LinkedIn Profile that has the required permissions. Here are all the steps you'll need:

1

Log in to your personal LinkedIn Profile that has administrative privileges on the Page you're looking to connect.

2

Head back over to Buffer Publish.

3

Click Manage Social Accounts at the bottom left hand of your dashboard. From there, click Add a New Social Account and then click LinkedIn Page.

4

Since you're already logged into your LinkedIn Profile, you won't need to enter your login credentials. However, you'll need to authorize Buffer to access your LinkedIn account. Click Allow to confirm.

5

Click on the LinkedIn Page you'd like to connect and you should be all set!
