Researching businesses is almost exclusively done online now, so it’s more important than ever to make sure that you are actively managing all of your online listings. You may be wondering what type of listings we’re talking about. A business listing is just that – a listing on a platform (like Google, Yelp, The Better Business Bureau, etc.) that includes all of your business’ information. This information can include business name, phone number, website, hours (including any holiday/temporary changes), business category, your logo, reviews of your business posted on that platform, a short description of your services, etc.
In our small business package, we offer a service called Directory Management in which we manage all of these listings for you. Up until recently, LinkedIn had not been part of listing management platforms, but is now included – which is awesome! If you are a Directory Management or Small Business Package client and have a valid and updated LinkedIn profile, please add us as a user so we can easily manage this listing for you. If you’re not a current Directory Management client, or you’re not fully sure what Directory Management can do for your business, scroll down to BONUS INFO below!
We’ve provided step-by-step instructions below on how to add us as an admin within your LinkedIn account. As always, if you need any help, or have any questions, contact us! We’re happy to help!
Step 1: Access your Page Super admin view.
Step 2: Click the Admin tools dropdown at the top of the page and select Manage admins.
Step 3: Click the Page admins or Paid media admins
Step 4: Click the Add admin
Step 5: Type the name of the member, associated employee, or advertiser you’d like to add in the Search for a member… text field.
Step 6: Click the member’s name from the menu that appears.
