Now, let’s see what the difference between page and paid media admins is and what roles do they do:
Types of LinkedIn Admin
There are 2 types of admin roles LinkedIn offers:
- Page admins (these include super admin, Content admins, analyst, and curator roles )
- Paid media admins (lead gen forms manager, landing pages manager, and sponsored content poster)
A person can only be assigned one page admin role at a time. But more than one paid media admin role can be given to the same individual.
Here are the complete details of these roles:
These people are responsible for all types of organic activities performed via the company professional profiles. They:
- Create and manage the content of the page
- And supervise the content’s reach, traffic coming on the page.
These roles are categorized into 4 types based on their authority and access to analytical data.
1. Super Admin
A super admin is a person who completely owns the page and can make any type of variation in its content or other admin roles. The person who creates the LinkedIn page automatically becomes a super admin.
They have the authority to:
- Assign an admin role to their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd connection
- Remove other admins
- Add, edit, and remove any content available on the page
- Comment from the company’s side
- Send invites to his connections to follow the organization’s profile
- Send notifications to the employees
- Post content using the third-party tools allowed by LinkedIn
- Create and edit product and showcase pages that are focused entirely on a specific product or feature
- Deactivate the page
2. Content Admin
The content admin can perform the same functions as the super admin besides making or removing someone as admin and deactivating the page. So, these managers are second to super admins in terms of authority.
The most common roles they play are:
- Add, edit, delete, and boost the content posted on the page
- Handle the insights about the company, including events management and job posting.
They can also update the info of the company, comment on the page, send follow-up invitations to connections, and export analytical data files.
The curator views content suggestions and then recommends the employees to post content. Additionally, they have access to the analytics. So they can get insights into the page performance.
The analysts have limited access to the 3rd party tools, they can only view and export the analytics of the page. Their primary role is to review the performance of content posted on the company’s profile by analyzing the number of views and demographics of visitors coming to the page over a custom time range.
Paid Media Admins:
These admins handle the sponsored content and ads on your LinkedIn page. They have three different roles:
1. Landing Pages Admins:
These admins can create and manage the company’s landing page for generating and managing leads for trading and hiring purposes. They use LinkedIn Recruiter to manage leads on the page.
These managers can add or remove other landing page admins, they also have access to the analytics of the landing page.
1. Lead Gen Forms Manager:
These managers utilize lead generation forms on various advertisements to improve the leads.
They use the campaign manager to retrieve marketing lead data. In turn, lead gen forms are prefilled with the user’s basic info, so the user has to fill less input fields.
1. Sponsored Content Poster:
These managers post ads and manage sponsored content through the LinkedIn Ads account on behalf of the company. They can view the visitor’s analytics to get insights on how well the sponsored content works.
The sponsored content is not directly shown on the page feed; it may be shown if the user uses the Ads filter on your page.
What is the LinkedIn company page, and why is it important for businesses?
LinkedIn company pages represent institutions or organizations, showing their brand presence.
These are an effective means of communication with employees and customers.
More than 58 Million professionals and business owners use this platform, so creating a LinkedIn page for your business can tremendously increase your product reach, and you will find many potential clients or partners for your business.
What are the different roles available for administrators on a LinkedIn company page?
On a LinkedIn page, administrator roles are available as Page admins and Paid media admins.
Administrative roles include the super admin, content admin, analyst, and curator roles.
While the paid media admins (people who manage sponsored content and paid campaigns) are Lead Gen Forms Manager, Landing Pages Manager, and Sponsored Content Poster.
You can perform different tasks in these roles. The super admin has full access to the company’s page, while other roles have access according to their duties.
Can I add someone as an admin if they’re not connected to me on LinkedIn?
Yes, the person must not be directly connected to you. Rather, he can also be a 2nd or a 3rd-degree connection. But if the user is not even your 3rd-degree connection, you can’t make them an admin of your page.
Are there any best practices or security measures I should follow when adding new administrators to our LinkedIn company page?
Handling the company’s page on your own becomes a tiring job, so you should deliver the responsibilities to different people to optimize the page well.
But, give the admin roles only to capable and professional people. Especially think twice before making anyone super admin, as they have full access to the page, and they can even remove you from the super admin role.
If you have business partners, it is right enough to make them the super admin. Otherwise, utilize content admin or paid media admin roles to ensure the safety of your company’s page.
LinkedIn offers various administration roles for better management of LinkedIn company pages. Different roles can perform different actions on behalf of the company. LinkedIn divides these roles into two major categories: page admins and paid media admins.
Super admins have the authority to take any action, while other admins are given access according to their roles.
Page admins are responsible for the organic content posted on the page, while paid media admins have the duty to create and manage sponsored content and ads.
