Everything you need to know about Messaging for Pages

In a world where authenticity, transparency, and efficiency are not just valued but expected, direct communication between brands and their customers is the heartbeat of modern-day business. Through direct engagement, your brand can quickly answer queries, tailor communications, and create personalized experiences that genuinely resonate with your audience. In parallel, when your customers feel heard, their satisfaction and loyalty increase, only fueling business growth.

That is why we’re excited to share we’ve joined forces with LinkedIn to provide mutual Oktopost and LinkedIn customers the ability to channel messages directly from their LinkedIn Company Page into Oktopost’s unified Inbox. In a significant move to strengthen how B2B businesses manage social media interactions between their brand and their audience, this collaboration not only simplifies social media management by bringing conversations into one place for a more streamlined workflow but also enhances the speed and impact of customer interactions with your brand.

What is Messaging for Pages

Introduced by LinkedIn in March 2024, Messaging for LinkedIn Pages allows LinkedIn members to start conversations with companies via direct message. It adds a message button to your Company page and an inbox to the admin center, so page admins and super admins can view and respond to members directly.

Now if you’re an Oktopost and LinkedIn customer, we will automatically bring all conversations from your LinkedIn Company Inbox into your Oktopost Inbox so you can access and manage all of your social media interactions across channels from one place.

How it works

B2B organizations, whose primary channel is LinkedIn, need easy ways to communicate with their community in the same place where they manage all of their social media activities and interactions to scale their customer care efforts.

Our Inbox now supports managing LinkedIn private messages so that your company pages can respond to inquiries on LinkedIn directly from the Oktopost Inbox. You can assign the conversations to relevant team members in your organization and engage with the personal profiles that sent you messages without leaving Oktopost. This facilitates easy collaboration between teams enabling you to manage social media conversations at scale, and provides your customers a seamless customer experience.

In addition to routing all social interactions from the LinkedIn Company page to your Oktopost Inbox, companies are also able to report on all response management efforts to make sure they are meeting and exceeding their goals. Every response that comes into Oktopost is not only able to be routed to the right person, but it then becomes available for reporting in Social BI using the Inbox data source.

What’s in it for you?

Whether you already have a process in place to handle conversations coming from social media or are just getting started, using the Oktopost Inbox to manage social interactions can have a huge impact on building meaningful relationships with your community.

Besides the obvious benefits of centralizing messages from various social networks into one place to save time, streamline communication, and enable your team to manage conversations at scale, there are more advantages to having Messaging for Pages funneled directly into your Oktopost Inbox.
