Watchity becomes LinkedIn Live official partner
Watchity ratifies a global partnership agreement with the professional social network LinkedIn. From the June product update, all the users who have been approved by LinkedIn Live will be able to broadcast their webinars and live events using Watchity.
With this agreement, Watchity enters the select group of LinkedIn Live partners. In this way, we join the dozen of the official partners spread around the world (Restream, Brandlive, Socialive, Streamyard, etc.) and we become the first Spanish company.
Who can use LinkedIn Live?
At the moment, not all pages and profiles of LinkedIn Spanish users are approved to use this new functionality. However, as happened in the United States, the beta phase is advancing and more and more Spanish profiles are being authorized to broadcast live content using streaming platforms such as Watchity. You’ll need to submit an application.
How can I apply for the LinkedIn Live feature?
All interested members and organizations should apply for access at this link. If your organization has a LinkedIn Marketing Solutions account representative, you may go through that person for access as well.
Note: Not all admins have access to stream on behalf of a Page that has been approved for LinkedIn Live. In your application, please indicate at least 1 admin who will be in charge of streaming on behalf of your Page
How can I start broadcasting on LinkedIn using Watchity?
Once you have received the confirmation email from LinkedIn to use its live feature, return to Watchiy and add the connection with this social network in the same way that you are already used to doing with Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo, etc. Check the social network connections process in our help center.
What are the LinkedIn Live benefits?
LinkedIn Live will allow Watchity users to broadcast content on the world’s largest professional network and thus strengthen the bond with their audiences. Recent studies have shown that live video is capable of generating up to 7 times more reactions and 24 times more comments than conventional videos.
LinkedIn Live videos achieve, on average: 7 times more reactions and 24 times more comments than native videos produced by the same people.
