How to Manage Multiple LinkedIn Accounts

If you provide LinkedIn marketing, lead generation, content posting, or any LinkedIn service for multiple clients then you need a easy way to switch between LinkedIn accounts.

This guide will help you setup a system to switch between different LinkedIn accounts with one-click using Chrome.  Below are the directions with images:

1. Create a new Chrome account. To do so, open chrome and click the grey tab which displays the chrome user name.

7. Select create new account and follow the prompts. You will be asked to create an email address. This email address is only needed to login to your chrome account, so name it however you like. Just keep track of it and corresponding password.

9. While inside your new chrome account, go to LinkedIn and login using one of the LinkedIn accounts you manage. When chrome asks you “Do you want to save the password for this site?” Say yes.

Mission accomplished! You have now synced your managed LinkedIn account to your new chrome account.

Anytime you want to access your managed LinkedIn account simply open up the Chrome account it is synced to (Shown in step 1) and go to LinkedIn.

No need to remember the login credentials for your managed LinkedIn account or logout of your personal LinkedIn. You can have both (or more) LinkedIn accounts open at the same time each in their respective chrome accounts.
