LinkedIn has announced a redesign of its company pages last week. The biggest change is the… wait for it… visual representation on the home page. If you think this sounds familiar, you’re right. Facebook introduced cover photos on personal timelines, as well as business pages early 2012, and in September Twitter launched headers for all profiles.
Apparently social media platforms just realized that we are visual people!
The new header on LinkedIn is located at the top of the company’s page, and is positioned above the most recent update, and general company information.
Here is the essential information you need:
Dimensions: 646px by 220 px
Maximum Size: 2MB
Format: .jpg, .gif, or .png.
For those of you without a LinkedIn Company Page, there are some requirements before you get started.
1. You need to be a current employee. That means the job needs to be on your LinkedIn profile.
2. You need to have a company email address added and confirmed on your LinkedIn profile. Sorry folks, no Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail accounts allowed.
3. Your LinkedIn profile must be over 50% complete.
4. You must have connections. LinkedIn uses the word “several” and this can range from 50-100 connections.
I hope this provides some assistance to get your business on LinkedIn!
