For LinkedIn, there are two types of posts: link and status posts. It turns out that LinkedIn does not offer the ability to make image type posts through their API. That means third-party apps like us unfortunately can't make image posts, only link posts. 

Important: Only Company pages can be connected on GAIN. 

Link Posts

Add a URL under the Link field and the platform will populate the title, description, and images, then modify the title and description copy as you want.

If a mistake was made on the URL or it needs to be changed, to change the title and description when a different link is chosen, simply clear all three fields first and then enter the new link. When the new link is placed, the fields will repopulate the title and description automatically.

Status Posts

Just as on Facebook where Pages are managed, on LinkedIn, the equivalent is a Company Page. These posts can be scheduled and automatically published. 

Important: There's no way to tag company pages via LinkedIn's API at the moment, as soon as this is available we'll be adding the ability to do so on GAIN as well.
