At Socialive, we’re here to help bring your next virtual event to life. We’re excited to announce that you can now schedule a LinkedIn Live with Socialive up to one week in advance, and a minimum of one hour before.
Below we discuss how to schedule a LinkedIn Live in two easy steps:
Step 1: Schedule A LinkedIn Live Broadcast
When you open the Socialive Studio, select the LinkedIn icon under the distribution options in the right-hand column. Toggle on a connected LinkedIn page or profile. Under Where to post? select Schedule a Broadcast.
Then, enter a Broadcast Title and Announcement Post. Choose the Date and Time of your live broadcast.
Next, select an image to accompany the announcement post. Click Send Announcement to schedule your broadcast.
As soon as you schedule your live broadcast, an announcement post is published to your Page letting your followers know there’s an upcoming broadcast. People who see the announcement post can click Remind Me to receive a reminder notification shortly before the broadcast begins.
Step 2: Start Your Scheduled Live Broadcast
Start your broadcast as close to the scheduled time as possible. You can start up to 15 minutes before or up to two hours after the scheduled time.
If you don’t start your broadcast within this window, your broadcast will be canceled and no notifications will be sent.
To start your scheduled live broadcast, open Socialive. Then, select the LinkedIn icon under the distribution options in the right-hand column. Toggle on a connected LinkedIn page or profile associated with your scheduled broadcast.
Under Where to post? select Scheduled LinkedIn Post. Then, select from the list of upcoming broadcasts. The Title and Post copy cannot be updated for pre-scheduled broadcasts.
Be sure to start your broadcast within the allowed time frame.
