In this article, we'll also review:

1. How to connect your LinkedIn account

On LinkedIn, all Pages are managed through the Profiles that have Super Admins & Content Admin permissions. So in order to connect your LinkedIn page you'll need to:

Connect the LinkedIn profile you use to manage the Page that you want to connect.

• Then select that Page to connect it to Loomly.

📝 Note: Loomly was created on a calendar basis. In each calendar, you can connect one account per social media platform. So if you need to connect two LinkedIn pages, for example, you will currently have to create two calendars.

You can also easily create a post that will be cloned on multiple calendars. You will be able to access all posts from All Calendars.

Loomly’s organic audience targeting features on LinkedIn allows you to accomplish just this.

Organic audience targeting is ideal for brands with a large community or those who need to target a specific subset of their audience. Learn more about it here.

📝 Note: The targeted segment must have at least 300 followers; otherwise, your post will fail.
