4 Easy Steps to Adding Documents and Pictures to Your LinkedIn Company Page
With the ongoing theme of "LinkedIn Giveth and LinkedIn Taketh Away," LinkedIn has taken away the Answers feature. (Or will be on January 31). But today it has given us the ability to easily add photos and documents to our company pages. Not quite an equal trade - but it will do :)
To see what this looks like, you can see my company page at: http://www.linkedin.com/company/linked-into-business-llc (And please feel free to follow my page too for tips like this!)
Adding Photos and Documents
To do this, follow these simple steps:
1. Go to your company page and where you would normally add an update, click on the paperclip. (PS 0 you can still add an update too if you want!)
2. You can upload any file you have on your computer. (It does not have to be a URL like it does on your personal profile page.) To upload a file successfully though, you have to make sure that the file name has no spaces in it. (So instead of LinkedIn photo.jpg, it would be LinkedInphoto.jpg)
3. Once you have successfully uploaded the file, change the title and add your description to it. The first 250 characters of your description will show up.
4. And then click upload. And that's all there is to it!
I don't know if this is available to everyone yet. LinkedIn sometimes takes its own sweet time! But if it is, enjoy uploading business-related photos to your new company page. :-) If not- be patient - its a'coming!
