LinkedIn Paid Marketing

These are the various methods through which you could perform promotion on LinkedIn, increase brand awareness, drive traffic and generate leads.

 Sponsored Content

This kind of ads lets us to promote Company Page through updates, regular posts to drive users to our website. Most people prefer to use the Pay Per Click Campaigns in this kind of ads.

Such ads help us promote a piece of content that we already have on our Company Page.

Sponsored InMail

The Sponsored InMail ads allows us to drive more leads and engage the target audience by sending personalized, private messages to their LinkedIn inboxes.

Messages sent through this method consist of a custom greeting, body text, call-to-action button, and a link can also be added to direct traffic to the website.

The ability to send direct messages to users makes it a very good marketing strategy. The messages are delivered with 100% surety as LinkedIn sends the messages to users only when they are online.

Text Ads

The text ads are almost similar to those ads that are shown on Google in Search Engine Result Pages. Multiple variations of each ad can be created  which makes it easy for us to choose the best looking ad. The text ads are only visible to LinkedIn users whom are browsing on LinkedIn desktop.  These ads are great to start with because they help us to increase brand awareness.

Dynamic Ads

The dynamic ads are also displayed on the right hand sidebar of LinkedIn. Such ads are dynamic in nature which means through such ads the users can interact directly and perform actions like downloading a sample ebook of the course. Members can also send their full name and email address directly through dynamic ads, without ever having to enter their information by hand. These ads are great for advertising job openings or increase the follow count of your LinkedIn company page.
