How to share a post on LinkedIn using RecurPost

RecurPost lets you schedule LinkedIn posts on profiles as well as company pages. Sharing images, videos, and links on LinkedIn via RecurPost is almost the same as other social media platforms.

Let’s first see how to share a post on LinkedIn.

1. Connect your LinkedIn accounts

Click on the ‘ADD’ button on the left-hand side of the Dashboard page and a pop-up window will appear. Under the LinkedIn section, there will be two options: Profile and Company. Select the one that you wish to connect.

You’ll be taken to the login screen, where you need to enter your LinkedIn email and password. The next screen will ask you to give certain permissions to RecurPost in order to post on your account. Don’t worry, no personal information or login credentials will be saved or used by RecurPost. Click on ‘Allow’ and your LinkedIn account will be connected.

2. Create a One-off post

One-off posts are helpful when you want to schedule a single post on multiple accounts. These posts will be shared on your accounts just once. To create a one-off post, click on the ‘Write a Post’ button under One-off Post on the dashboard.

A pop-up window will appear where you can add all the details of your post. Add description/caption, attach images/video or create a graphic directly from Canva, add hashtags, include emojis, insert a link (a preview will be automatically fetched) and select the LinkedIn account that you want to post on.

When you are done adding the details, either post it immediately or schedule for a later date/time.

3. Add content in libraries

You can fill up your libraries with awesome content and set a recurring schedule to make all that content go out in a loop on your LinkedIn accounts. You will find all your content libraries in the ‘Recurring Posts’ tab. 

When you sign up, 3 libraries will be created by default. You can edit or delete them, or create as many new libraries as you want. In these libraries, you will find a lot of options to add recurring posts. You can add a single post, add images/text/link posts in bulk, add content through a CSV/excel file, import content from a social account, or set up an RSS feed.

4. Create a recurring schedule

After adding content to your libraries, you need to set a recurring schedule to let the posts go out on your social accounts. To set a recurring schedule, go to the library and navigate to the ‘RECURRING TIME SLOTS’ tab. Then click on ‘ADD RECURRING TIME SLOTS’ button.

Here, you can select the frequency at which you want your posts to go out. Choose an option between Daily/Weekly or Monthly cycles, set the time, and click on the ‘ADD TIME SLOT’ button.

That’s it. All the posts in your libraries will be posted according to the schedule set. 

Now let’s see how your LinkedIn posts will appear once posted through RecurPost.

– How will text posts appear on LinkedIn

If you are only posting text, it will appear the same on LinkedIn the way you have typed it on RecurPost. 

This is how you will compose a one-off post.

This is how it will appear on LinkedIn.

– How will image and video posts appear on LinkedIn

Here, you can select images, videos, or GIFs from various sources to post to LinkedIn using the ‘ADD MEDIA’ option.

LinkedIn allows us to post images or videos natively, therefore we directly post an image or video on your account. 

Here is how that post will look like.

– How will link posts appear on LinkedIn

For any link that you paste in the message box, RecurPost fetches an image from that link along with a title for this link.

You can also change the link image and share another image of your choice with the link post. When this post gets shared on LinkedIn, it will appear with your custom image as below:
