Learn about the benefits of LinkedIn advertising.

LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking channel that was launched back in May 2003. After only 3 years LinkedIn grew to 20 million members, and has recently experienced viral growth and now boasts 313 million members, connecting in 20 languages in more than 200 countries and territories.

Mainly used for professional networking, LinkedIn is an online contact book, curriculum vitae and publishing platform for anyone wanting to establish their personal professional online presence. If you are not yet using LinkedIn, see our last blog – Top Tips For Making LinkedIn Work For Your Business.


As well as being an effective online networking tool LinkedIn has also become a highly-targeted online advertising platform. The benefits of LinkedIn advertising compared to other social networking channels is that it provides great targeting options, including the ability to target by job title, employer, role, and skills, as well as the normal demographic and geographic options. Because LinkedIn users add more detailed and up-to-date “professional” information you can have more confidence that you are actually reaching your desired audience.


How it Works

LinkedIn allows you to create and place your ads on the top banner or sidebar of pages on the website. After specifying your target audience, your ads will display and allow users the chance to click on your ads that link to your website for further information.



Because of its highly targeted advertising options LinkedIn Advertising is slightly more expensive in comparison to Google or Facebook paid advertising.


Setting up ads on LinkedIn is a straightforward process, so there is no reason why you can’t start advertising on LinkedIn now.If you are still unsure if LinkedIn advertising is for you or if you would like help setting up your personal and business profile on LinkedIn please contact the Dubzz team.
