HOW TO BLOCK A COMPANY ON LINKEDIN IN 2024

Before you learn how to block a company on Linkedin, let me tell you something you probably need to know.

Linkedin may not be helping your marketing

  • Your Linkedin content may reach a max of 2% of your followers (if you are lucky). This is a massive issue affecting thousands of marketers in different industries. 
  • You have been trying hard to build an audience on Linkedin that you do not even own.
  • You cannot transfer your hard-earned Linkedin followers to your own CRM or another platform.
  • Your customer acquisition costs from Linkedin ads are through the roof.

The solution

I can offer you marketing strategy training that will help you:

REMOVING A COMPANY’S POSTS FROM YOUR LINKEDIN FEED

Are you getting useless and worthless content from companies on your Linkedin feed?

I am with you.

Find below some options to stop this from happening.

To block posts from a company page showing up on your Linkedin feed, you need to unfollow the company on Linkedin. To unfollow a company you will need to find it first > How to see companies you follow on Linkedin

REMOVING A COMPANY’S ADS FROM YOUR LINKEDIN FEED

If you are tired of seeing a company’s ad popping up on your Linkedin feed, you can report the ad by clicking on the three dots and then clicking on the “Report this ad” option.

Once you do this, the Linkedin algorithm will not show ads from the company on your Linkedin feed.

ADJUST YOUR LINKEDIN PUBLIC PROFILE SETTINGS

You can adjust your Linkedin’s public profile settings so no one can see it, but it does not work to stop specific connections from seeing your profile. If you want a connection to stop seeing your Linkedin profile and sending you messages, you will have to “remove” the connection with that individual.

When you block a connection, you will no longer be connected (if you were before), or have endorsements and recommendations from this person. You will also no longer see any suggestions to interact with each other.

You can block a person from seeing your LinkedIn Profile – Access this option from the “More…” button on their LinkedIn Profile (as per below). This will only block them from viewing your Linkedin profile.
