Integrate LinkedIn Elevate

  • Updated

LinkedIn Elevate is a feed-based social channel where you can share content to a feed and then ingest it to a CMS by a feed export URL. Like other social channels such as Salesforce, Hearsay, Hootsuite, and Spredfast, LinkedIn Elevate operates as a feed you can set up in the Content Marketing Platform (CMP) as a social distribution channel.

Create a LinkedIn Elevate feed

  1. Go to your avatar > Social Accounts.
  2. Scroll to the LinkedIn Elevate Feed Accounts section and click Add a LinkedIn Elevate Feed Account.


  3. Enter the name of your account and click Create. Your feed displays in the list of LinkedIn Elevate Feed Accounts.

Publish to a LinkedIn Elevate feed

When you create a feed, it displays in the Publish section of a CMP task page.

  1. Click Add Channel and enter LinkedIn Elevate, which causes LinkedIn Elevate feeds to display.


  2. After selecting the proper feed, complete the article URL (Canonical URL) field. Unlike other feed-based social channels, you cannot send the article title or description separately to LinkedIn Elevate because LinkedIn Elevate itself requires the canonical URL. 


    You must include a canonical URL or Article URL for your social post, or it will not publish. Most users typically publish an article on a WordPress site or to a feed before scheduling social posts through social channels for shares to generate the canonical URL and include it in the social posts later.

    Nonetheless, even if you create a Quick Share task and include social posts for sharing, you can manually insert the URL of a published post or original article URL in the article URL field.

  3. You will not need to edit the social post scheduling to publish the article on a WordPress feed and share the social posts simultaneously. Before you click Publish to publish the article to the designated distribution channels, this is what the scheduling section will look like:


  4. After you schedule the article for publishing on the desired date and time to the selected distributed channels, it appears in the Scheduling section alongside the distributions as shown below:


Export a LinkedIn Elevate feed

After the post gets published, click Export from the social account page to get your RSS feed endpoint. You can also use the RSS endpoint to export articles to LinkedIn Elevate.


Copy and paste this URL into your address bar to see the articles posted in your feed.

Delete a LinkedIn Elevate feed

To delete a feed from the list of connected feed-based distributions, click Delete (icon). Clicking Delete in the confirmation dialog box permanently removes your feed from the list.
