For a step-by-step in-system walkthrough, log into your Libsyn show, then click here.
Setting Up LinkedIn OnPublish
To get started, log into your Libsyn Dashboard and hover over Destinations, then hit Add New.
Locate LinkedIn in the list, and hit Add.
The system will ask you to log into LinkedIn, hit the log in button, and log in.
You will be asked to approve permissions for Libsyn to be able to publish to your LinkedIn profile and/or pages.
Once you’ve approved all the permissions, you will be redirected back to Libsyn. A list including your personal timeline and all your pages will appear. Choose where you want Libsyn to post on your behalf.
You can also choose what link gets shared, particularly if you utilize the Post Link option above. This is the link that would be included in the post which viewers would be able to click in order to access the show. How it gets accessed depends on the link you choose.
Libsyn has a podcast directory that showcases shows hosted by Libsyn. This directory can be found here:
Choosing the directory link option will link directly to your episode in the Libsyn podcast directory.
When you create an episode inside Libsyn, you can set the permalink for the episode. This can be a custom link, or even link to your Libsyn podcast page. If you choose episode permalink, that is the URL that would get shared.
Each media file published has a download URL that can be used to access the media file directly. Choosing this option will share that download URL.
With your settings configured the way you wish, hit the Save button. Going forward, any episode published in Libsyn can be sent to LinkedIn.
Publishing to LinkedIn OnPublish
Publishing an episode to LinkedIn is the same as publishing an episode any other time. However, there are some additional options made available to you.
When creating a new episode, a new option for Social Destination Custom Text will become available. Here, you can enter a LinkedIn status message to appear with your post.
Scheduling with LinkedIn
When scheduling an episode, the LinkedIn destination can have a time for release fully customized just as any other destination.
