LinkedIn is a great platform for businesses to showcase their products and services. By creating a LinkedIn app and connecting your products, you can easily promote your business and reach a wider audience. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to create a LinkedIn app:

Step 1: Create an App

To create a LinkedIn app, you must first have a LinkedIn Account. Then, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the LinkedIn Developer website at
  2. Click on the "Create App" button in the center of the screen
  3. Fill out the required information, such as the app name, LinkedIn page, privacy policy, and app logo
  4. Agree to the LinkedIn Developer Terms of Use and click "Create App"

Step 2: Connect Your Products

Now that your LinkedIn app is created, you can connect your products to it.

Linkedin offers the possibility to post on:

  • Personal profile
  • Business page

If you want Mixpost to be able to post only on your personal page, you must add only these 2 products:

  • Share on LinkedIn
  • Sign In with LinkedIn

If you want Mixpost to be able to post on the personal profile and on the business page, you must add this product:

  • Community Management API

Unfortunately, only legal companies receive access to the "Community Management API", for that you must send them all the necessary information and documents in the request for access to the "Community Management API".

Products that offer the possibility to post only on the personal profile do not require verification.

If you need the "Community Management API", submit a request and you have to wait for access to the "Development Tier" which has very small limits. With access to the "Development Tier" you can use Mixpost to post on your business pages/personal profile. If you need more limits, you can request an upgrade attached with other information about your legal company and a video with a voice from the Mixpost dashboard. Requesting access to this product is done as described below.

If you already have an app created with products added just to post on your personal profile. You need to create a new application with "Community Management API" only

To add products, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the "Products" section of your LinkedIn app dashboard
  2. Request access to products for your needs. For example, I just want to be able to post on my personal profile:
    • Share on LinkedIn
    • Sign In with LinkedIn
  3. Configure the "Authorized callback URLs"
  4. Go to the "Auth" section and copy the "Client ID" & "Client secret" to your Mixpost dashboard, page "Services". If you are using Pro/Enterprise, this page is in Admin Console. Also here, on the services page, don't forget to select the product.

Here is an example of the "Content Management API" request
