Working with Viadeo API
The Viadeo Developer site is designed to support the developer community in integrating the Viadeo API. However, some organisations will require greater functionality, further access and a more specialist level of integration than is publicly available. If you find this is the case, please contact us to discuss becoming a Viadeo API partner.
Becoming an API partner
The aim of the Viadeo API is to extend the functionality of our network so that our members have a more open, personalised and interactive experience than when on other websites. We welcome partners who want to participate in the open web and are interested in the potential of connecting with over 45 million professionals.
Becoming an API Partner will give you the possibility of exploring a more advanced level of integration than is generally available. It also means you will get to work with a dedicated Account Manager and the Viadeo Technical Support Team.
What are the benefits?
The Viadeo API can be used to enhance your site according to your users’ needs. The possibilities for integration are almost endless, and here are a few examples:
Facilitate social engagement with your content, products or services
Let your users do the marketing for you. Enable them to share and recommend your content and reap the rewards of social recommendation, including qualified return traffic from users’ professional contacts and engagement with your brand.
Enhance the user experience with simplified registration, automatic search and form completion
Simplify your registration process by pre-populating data already listed on the users’ professional profiles including location, job titles, work experience and education history. Make your site more relevant, personalised and engaging by suggesting relevant searches based on what you know about the user.
Personalise content, products or services to users’ interests, job titles or location
Give your users a personalised experience from the moment they arrive on your site. Allow them to connect with their Viadeo account on your homepage using Viadeo Connect so that the rest of the site experience can be tailored to their professional profile, with the bonus of adding social relevance.
