To get approved as a broadcaster on LinkedIn Live, you have to meet certain requirements. The four main criteria are:
- More than 150 followers and/or connections
- Recent activity sharing original content on LinkedIn, including posts with text, images, or videos, or publishing articles
- Good-standing record abiding by the Professional Community Policies of LinkedIn
- Not geographically based in mainland China
If you want to go beyond the minimum requirements and ensure your application is approved, follow these tips:
- Check to see if you’re already approved. If you’re active on LinkedIn and have a large follower base, you may already have approval for broadcasting on LinkedIn Live. You can verify by going to https://www.linkedin.com/video/golive/. If you don’t have access, you’ll see a message saying you’re not allowed to go live on LinkedIn.
- Live stream on other platforms. If you have a solid presence on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter where you publish live video content regularly, the LinkedIn administrators can be more confident you’ll go live regularly on LinkedIn as well.
- Engage with other LinkedIn Live streamers. See who in your network goes live on LinkedIn, and when they do, join the conversation! Show your enthusiasm for live streaming in general.
- Apply again. If you applied a few months ago and didn’t get approved, but you’ve ramped up your activity on LinkedIn since then, try applying again.
