How to manage LinkedIn pages on mobile
Now that you have created a LinkedIn business page on mobile, you can manage it perfectly on the official LinkedIn app.
Unlike Facebook Pages Manager, LinkedIn does not offer a separate mobile app for managing business pages. However, you would be able to do much of the work on the LinkedIn app (Android | iPhone). For you to manage the page on the mobile browser, you will have to use the desktop version.
On the LinkedIn app, tap on your profile photo at the top-right corner. The right sidebar will appear and there will be a new option called Pages you manage, below which will be your page. Tap on it, and manage the page like as you like.
Watch the following video by LinkedIn to better understand how it works.
As discussed before, having a LinkedIn page is a must if you want to gain prominence and want your businesses to be known in this era of social media. More so, if you have or want to have a large group of online-based customers or audience.
No less importantly, you and others who work for your company will be able to showcase the company logo on their personal profiles like a badge that they are proud to wear.
