You can schedule a LinkedIn Live broadcast in Socialive up to one week in advance. By scheduling a broadcast, you are creating an automated public post on LinkedIn announcing your upcoming broadcast. This post will include a Remind Me button that your followers can click to guarantee they get a notification once the broadcast begins.

This article will go over the following topics:

Prerequisites

Step 1: Scheduling a LinkedIn Live Broadcast

  1. In Socialive, create a new broadcast or open an existing one.

  2. On the right-side panel, under the Broadcast Live tab, click the LinkedIn logo.

  3. In the pop-up that appears:

    1. Toggle on a connected LinkedIn page or profile.

    2. Under "Where to Post?", select Scheduled Broadcast.

    3. Under "Select an upcoming broadcast," select Schedule a Broadcast.

  4. Another pop-up will appear:

    1. Enter the Broadcast Title. You cannot change this later on.

    2. Enter the post description for your Announcement Post. You cannot change this later on.

    3. Select the Date and Time of your scheduled broadcast. You can schedule a broadcast from 1 hour to 7 days from now. You cannot change this later on.

    4. Upload an image for your Announcement post. You cannot change this later on.

  5. Click Send Announcement to schedule your broadcast and post it on LinkedIn.

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.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • You can schedule up to 7 days in advance and at minimum 1 hour before your stream.

  • The Title, Date, Time, and Image can not be updated after you set it. You can, however, update the Post copy directly on LinkedIn.


Step 2: Starting 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 2 hours after your scheduled time. If you don't start your broadcast within this window, your broadcast will be canceled, and no notifications will be sent.

  1. In Socialive, create a new broadcast or open an existing one.

  2. On the right-side panel, under the Broadcast Live tab, click the LinkedIn logo.

  3. In the pop-up that appears:

    1. Toggle on a connected LinkedIn page or profile.

    2. Under "Where to Post?", select Scheduled Broadcast.

    3. Under "Select an upcoming broadcast," select the broadcast you previously scheduled.

  4. Start your broadcast within the allowed timeframe

At the scheduled time of the live broadcast, people who expressed interest via the initial announcement post will receive a notification directing them to the broadcast.

After the broadcast is complete, the post will remain on your page or profile, but the live original announcement post will turn into a video post.


Canceling Your Scheduled Live Broadcast

You can cancel your scheduled LinkedIn broadcast by deleting the announcement from your LinkedIn profile or page.
