HOW TO: Create & Manage An Event Using LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking site, mostly used for professional networking.

Recently I found LinkedIn Events quite interesting and it is easy to create and manage Events here. If you are organizing an event or bloggers meet, then this could be very useful.

Below I mentioned the procedure to create and manage events.


Creating An Event – LinkedIn

#1 – Go to LinkedIn Events or Select More (Top Navbar) > Events.

#2 – Now you have to fill some details related to the event you are going to create.

Before filling click “Add More Details” which is present before the “Publish Event” button.

Linkedin Event - More Details

Now you have three sections here.

#1 – Event Details : Here you need to fill stuffs like Event Title, Date & Time, Venue Name, Address, Country, Website, Description and some more.

#2 – Event Categorization : Here you need to mention the Event Type, Industry, Keywords (Make use of it), Organization, and who should attend.

#3 – Event Organization : Here there are two questions. Answer whether you are attending and whether you are organizing this event.

After filling all the fields, click on “Preview” button. Proof read everything and now confirm and publish the event. Hurray, now the Event is created. You can get an exclusive URL for this event, you can share them on social networks.


What You Can Do After Creating An Event

#1 – Tells Your Network : By default an update will sent to your network letting them know about your event on LinkedIn.

#2 – Share With Contacts : You can also share this with your contacts. Increase awareness and attendance by sharing your event with specific contacts.

#3 – Advertise On LinkedIn : If you are ready to spend some bucks, then you can advertise on LinkedIn. You can reach potential attendees with DirectAds; targeted advertising on LinkedIn.


Managing An Event – LinkedIn

You can easily manage this event. Visit the event page using the URL, click on “Manage” tab. You can edit event information, check event history, and delete this event.
