Instead of creating posts individually you can create a Post Campaign.
A Post Campaign is where you have multiple posts which all relate to the same thing. For example, you could have a post campaign for "Lead Generation Seminar 1" where you have 10 social posts across different networks for that one topic.
This is really useful when you want to filter by Campaign and have a neater workspace.
This article will show you how to create a Post Campaign and explore where your Campaigns are stored.
The Campaign Dashboard
Your Campaigns all live under one page. This is where you see a list of all past, present, and scheduled campaigns and a brief stats overview.
- Select the icon in the left side toolbar.
- Then select 'Campaigns'. You will then be on the Campaign "dashboard".
- Here is the list of all of your campaigns. They are colour coded for each campaign.
- A brief statistics overview is displayed here. If there are no available statistics then it is a campaign which has yet to go out.
- Use the search bar to search for a specific campaign name.
- Select 'New Campaign' to start creating a new campaign.
Please expand the below sections to view the nested content.
Simply clicking these options on the right will pause, purge, or archive the campaign.
You will find these settings by clicking into the Campaign Name and selecting the 'Settings' tab.
- Select 'New Campaign'
- A new window will pop up. Type in the name of your Campaign.
- Here you can add your Campaign Tags. These help you filter out your Campaigns in the Filter.

4. The following icons are post additions. From left to right these are: the name of the campaign, add a video or image, choose an audience, and copy to a board.
Choosing an Audience will bring up the above window. This allows you to choose select people to see your post. Once selected only those in that post audience will see said post.
5. Selecting the smiley face icon will add in an emoji of your choosing.
6. Change the account to post to by selecting the drop down next to your account name.
7. Select the clock icon to change when the post is scheduled to go out.
8. Select the person icon to change who of your LinkedIn network sees the post.
9. Select 'Share Now' to send out the post, schedule the post, or save the post as a draft.
This is the window which will display when selecting an audience off LinkedIn.
This is the date scheduler. You can select to add it to a queue, or pick a specific date and time for the post to send.
If you click into each campaign you are able to see another calendar view as shown above.
