LinkedIn

Integration

Automate and manage your LinkedIn posts and messages from one place

What does the LinkedIn integration do?

The one-click LinkedIn integration allows you to make and schedule posts, comments, comment responses, and replies to direct messages to your LinkedIn pages and accounts. It also allows you to collect analytics data from LinkedIn and track leads coming from posts and ads you run on LinkedIn. You can specify which of your users have which level of access to which LinkedIn pages and groups, and whether or not their posts require approvals.

How do I setup the LinkedIn integration?

In Social Hero, go to Profiles > LinkedIn and click Add. You'll be asked to verify your LinkedIn credentials once in order to connect our third-party posting API to your account, then you'll be asked to select all of the pages and groups that you want to manage with Social Hero. And that's it! You can then assign access to each page and group to whichever users you please.

Support for the LinkedIn integration

LinkedIn occasionally disconnects API connections if they are not used for a period of time. In this case, you'll be notified in the Profiles section and asked to repeat the one-click connection. LinkedIn also occasionally rejects some posts sent by API if they violate any of LinkedIn's Terms of Use, include an attachment that exceeds the size limit for LinkedIn posts, or are sent at times of high traffic and Internet latency. In this case, you'll be immediately notified on your dashboard and email of the failed post and the reason it was rejected, with suggestions on how to fix the post or when to retry.
