5 Plugins to Integrate LinkedIn into WordPress
With millions of registered accounts, LinkedIn offers an open door of opportunities to extend your brand to professionals of the same interests. How about if you want to invite people to join your network through your WordPress website? Here are 5 plugins to integrate LinkedIn into WordPress.
1. WP LinkedIn
Display your full LinkedIn profile on your WordPress website. You can use it as your about page or as your author’s bio in any of the posts you publish.
The WP LinkedIn plugin, in particular, enables you to display your:
- LinkedIn recommendations
- Profile header which links directly to your LinkedIn profile
- LinkedIn network updates
It also comes with a couple of plugin extensions that allow you to provide more of that “LinkedIn experience” to your website users. So if you want to feature multiple LinkedIn profiles on a page, share your company updates, or have advanced profile templates, these extensions are available to help you achieve just that.
The plugin is currently available in seven of the major languages of the world. And these languages are English, Dutch, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Catalan, and Serbian.
Profile header, summary, experience, projects, recommendations — it’s a complete LinkedIn profile that you can feature.
It does a good way of bringing clients from LinkedIn as well as clients who may not yet be on LinkedIn. Either way, it brings to attention which networking platform you are most active and willing to connect.
You can still display links and buttons on your website to other social networking platforms should you want to.
2. Monarch Social Sharing
Share your posts and pages with this sleek social sharing plugin. With it, people can help spread the word about your WordPress website to more than 20 social networks, including LinkedIn.
To download the plugin, you simply need to register for a yearly access to Elegant Themes. Or, sign up with the one time fee instead.
How does it work?
The Monarch Social Sharing plugin comes with social media buttons that you can customize and display at different locations on your website. You can display them on your sidebar, anywhere near your content, on your images and videos, via pop-up or fly-in — it’s your decision.
And one thing that you and your website users will love about the plugin is that it does not impose on anyone. The fly-in and pop-up, for example, provide sufficient time for people to browse through your amazing content before appearing on the screen.
That way, it also provides them sufficient control over how they wish to navigate your website.
The plugin also responds well on mobile devices and comes with a dashboard where you can find the total number of shares for each of your posts.
3. WP LinkedIn Auto Publish
Post automatically to your LinkedIn profile or company page as soon as you publish a post or page from your WordPress website.
Despite its automatic feature, the good news is you can still choose which content to post on LinkedIn. The WP LinkedIn Auto Publish plugin allows you to decide which content categories to share.
There is also a corresponding checkbox beside each post or page you create or edit. Simply tick it if you want to share the post automatically, or untick it if you prefer to share the post manually instead.
One advantage that this WordPress plugin presents is your ability, as the website owner or manager, to see which posts were shared on LinkedIn and which posts were not.
You also get a preview of the number of shares that your posts reached on the professional networking platform.
Overall, it allows you to stay active on LinkedIn without having to do much yourself.
It does, however, only connects your WordPress website to a single company page on LinkedIn. Nonetheless, the plugin is easy to use and is customizable.
