If you are interested in getting your business or company featured on LinkedIn.com, you will need to build yourself a compelling and appealing page to attract the millions of users who log into LinkedIn each day looking for work. In this tutorial, we’ll explain what company pages are, and how to get started adding your company to LinkedIn.
LinkedIn company pages are profiles on LinkedIn that represent not individual business professionals, but entire companies. They are a way for companies to engage with the business community on LinkedIn, offer job opportunities, and just generally let people know what the company is about.
Go to www.linkedin.com in your web browser and log in.
Move your mouse cursor over Interests in the menu across the top, and click Companies.
Under "Create a Company Page", click Create.
On the next screen, click in the box labelled "Company Name" and type in your company's name. Then, click in the box labelled "Your Email Address at Company" and type in the email address that you can be contacted at for company inquiries. Then click the check box here to say that you are authorized to act on behalf of your company. Finally, click Continue.
From there, fill in your company's information (including a company summary between 250 and 2000 characters, and a web address for your company's website), and you're good to go!
Assuming that you're still logged into LinkedIn, move your mouse cursor over Interests in the menu across the top, and click Companies.
Under "Manage Your Page(s)", click the name of the company whose page you wish to edit.
In the top-right corner of your company page, click Edit.
Make whatever changes are necessary to your company's information, and then click Publish.
You can only delete a company page on LinkedIn if you are one of that page's administrators, and your company has less than 10 employees. Even then, you cannot unilaterally delete a company page on LinkedIn, since such a decision affects more than just you. You must contact LinkedIn customer service to delete your company page.
See our article on how to contact LinkedIn customer service for instructions on how to contact LinkedIn customer service.
