How Do I Set Up Geotargeting For A LinkedIn Company Profile?

 

Important Note:
This feature is currently in Beta and is only available for LinkedIn Company Pages.
Important Note:
In order to use the Geotargeting feature you will need more than 300 connections within that particular geographical location, this is a limit imposed via Linkedin’s API and is the same if you are natively posting through Linkedin’s platform.

Since we’ve become a Linkedin Partner we have developed a new feature that is live on the Sendible dashboard (but still in BETA trial). Our new Linkedin Geotarget feature allows our users to precisely target their Linkedin posts to a particular geographic location, be this country, state or city.

7. Once your Geotargeting settings for this service have reached at least 300 target audience and you are happy with the settings, click the OK button.

Please Note:
You can’t save your Geotargeting Settings, until your target audience has reached at least 300.
