LinkedIn is a really good platform to include in your live stream destinations. Now, you know I’ve been using the software Restream to go live, and LinkedIn is among the platforms that it can connect to.
In this post, I’m going to show you how to go live on LinkedIn using Restream.
Apply and Get Approved for LinkedIn Live
LinkedIn Live is one of those things that you must apply for, and it’s been like this for quite some time now. Even if you already have a profile, you still need to apply to access this feature. Then, you must wait for approval before you become a live broadcaster.
Once you’re approved, you get a notification about it, of course, and a button appears at the side of LinkedIn that says Go Live. When you click on that button, it actually takes you to a page that tells you that you need some kind of software in order to go live on LinkedIn.
I use Restream for this, and I hope that you do to because it’s amazing. I recommend that you sign up for Restream’s paid plans for various reasons, which I covered in my other videos about this software.
