  1. Enter the information for your company, including your official name and work email address. Click “Continue” to enter more information. Remember, your company’s page will go live right away, so make sure you populate it with information such as your specialities, website, address, industry, and contact information.

Once your Company Page is created, you can start posting updates from that page as well as your personal page.
