linkedin icon

LinkedIn-Q&AI often get questions from people regarding LinkedIn. When I feel the question is shared by others, I post it here on my blog for all to read.

Question:

Hey Donna,

I just formed a non-profit. How can I add my logo on my profile page?

Thanks,

Joe

Answer:

Hi Joe!

Great question! There’s a few ways you can add a logo to your LinkedIn Profile page.

Do you want the logo to show up along side your current experience? So it looks like this:

Logo on LinkedIn Profile

If so, then you need to create a Company page.

Creating a LinkedIn Company Page

In order to create a LinkedIn Company Page, your company’s email domain must be unique to your company. Ex. You@YourCompanyName.com. There’s a few other requirements which you can read about here. As long as you meet those requirements, all you need to do is click this link to create a LinkedIn Company Page. Once your Company Page is created, you will need to upload two different versions of your logo.

Standard Logo: This image is your company logo and will represent your company at the top of your Company Page and will appear on your employees LinkedIn profile under experience. It is 100 x 60 pixels and can be in PNG, JPEG or GIF format. The maximum size is 2 MB.

Square Logo: The square logo accompanies your company’s status updates on followers’ LinkedIn home page newsfeed. It is 50 x 50 pixels and can be in PNG, JPEG or GIF format. The maximum size is 2 MB.

Now that you have your logo uploaded to your company page, you will want to make sure your personal LinkedIn Profile page links to it. Simply edit your LinkedIn profile (Profile > Edit Profile) and scroll down to your current experience.

If your logo is showing up, all is groovy! If it’s not showing up, edit your current experience and under Company Name, click Change Company Name. Start typing your Company name and (this is the important part) SELECT YOUR COMPANY NAME FROM THE DROPLIST that magically appears:

At this point your logo will now show alongside your current experience.

Voila! Now wasn’t that easy?

If you are thinking, “Wow, that seems like a lot of work, I don’t want to do all that, how about if you, Donna it for me?” then I like the way you think.

Now before we get ahead of ourselves, I did say there were a couple ways to add logos to your LinkedIn profile page.

Another Way to Add a Logo to Your LinkedIn Profile Page

The other way to add a logo to your LinkedIn Profile Page is to use embedded media. LinkedIn allows you to upload samples of your work to your LinkedIn profile. You can add media to the Summary, Education, and Experience sections of your LinkedIn profile.

Hover over your Summary or Experience (or even Education) section and the add media icon will appear. It looks like a square with a plus sign. You can then either select Upload File OR Add Link. In this situation, you should choose to upload a file. Just make sure your image is in .png, .gif, .jpg, or .jpeg format.

Add Logo to LinkedIn Summary

Once you choose your logo, it will appear directly under that section. So it will look like this:

I know these are not logos but rather images, but at least it shows you the placement of where your logo would sit! 🙂

In Conclusion

So there you have it! Two ways to add a logo to your LinkedIn profile. I hope you found these instructions easy to follow and helpful. And always remember, you don’t have to go it alone. You can always work with us and we’ll do it for you!!! [/box]

  1. LinkedIn has changed their logo sizes to 300×300 with padding, which makes logos that are a company name (our logo/name is UNDAVI) look very small. I hate it.

  2. How can I add an icon (link to a company website) under the volunteer experience section? Also, can I add any media to the volunteer section? If so, how?

  3. If I want to ensure an icon for an educational institution appears in my LinkedIn profile in the education section, can I simply add a link to the school’s website? Or do I have to have an image file of their logo to upload in order for the logo to appear in my LI profile?

    Once I choose the logo, it will appear directly under that section.I want the same in the right side of the Organisation.

  5. Teresa H Daniel says:

    Is it possible to add logos to your work experience for companies that no longer exist but that you have the logo for? One of the companies I worked for did not make it through the 2008 economic recession (so the company closed and they no longer have a website) and another was for a company that I worked for in the late 1990’s that was bought by another (larger) company (hence, no website or company page for the original company). I still have the logo artwork for both closed companies in my archived files. Just trying to figure out how to upload those logo images so there isn’t just a gray image box next to my former work experience.
