Channel99 has built the LinkedIn Spend and Metrics connector in order to provide the most up to date vendor influence information with with the least manual inputs from our end users, you. You will no longer need to update Vendor spend for LinkedIn once the connection is made unless you would like to still input manual spend data, which is available to you as well.
Why is it important to connect Channel99 to LinkedIn?
It's hard to remember to maintain spend information on monthly basis so automating the spend import reduces the need for manual inputs. This connector will eventually be used for other LinkedIn metrics so connecting now will help streamline that process.
How do I connect LinkedIn to Channel99?
The linking process is very easy and is done in 3 steps.
- Login to Channel99 and to go Settings -> Integrations and Choose LinkedIn
- Click "Connect", this will take you to LinkedIn to sign-in and select the Account you would like to link. If you only have one LinkedIn Ads account you will not have to select anything and will be returned to the integration page
- You are now connected, within 3 hours you will be able to navigate into "Vendor Spend" within "Settings" and view the automated vendor spend data, this will be indicated by a grayed out row and a lock icon in the vendor name.
Your linkedIn connection will keep your Spend up to date by syncing every 6 hours.
