  2. On the right hand side you will see the Create a Company Page section. In that section click on the yellow Create button.

  3. You will then be asked to choose your company name and email address, be sure to pick something your clients will be able to associate with you.

  4. A confirmation email will be sent to the email you provided. Go to that email and follow the instructions; which will take you to a new link.

  5. You will be asked to sign into your personal LinkedIn account. Log in and let’s get started with the meat of your profile.

  6. Now that you have created your page it’s time to customize it. Start by adding the people you want to administer your page. (You must be connected to them already in order to add them)

  7. In the right hand column you can now select your business type, size, URL (website address), industry, operating status and year founded.

  8. Now it is time to upload your logo and company image. This will give your page brand recognition making it easy to point out and making it memorable.

  9. Once you are done click publish on the top right corner of the screen and be sure to keep an eye on the follower insights which can be found in the drop down next to the blue edit button.
