How to advertise on LinkedIn

Connect your brand with the world’s largest audience of active, influential professionals.

The six steps below demonstrate how to run a self-service ad campaign on LinkedIn using Sponsored Content, Document Ads, Message Ads, Dynamic Ads, and Text Ads.
Powered by Campaign Manager, LinkedIn’s all-in-one advertising platform.

Get started with Campaign Manager

If you don’t have a Campaign Manager account, it only takes a moment to create one.
Campaign Manager lets you set a budget, select goals (clicks vs. impressions), and have complete control over your campaign’s timeline. In addition, the platform includes several features designed to help you meet your advertising goals:

  • Dynamic visual reporting that recalculates and displays only the data that matches your search and filter settings.
  • A detailed breakout of the actions your campaigns generate, including Clicks, Likes, Shares, Comments, and Follows.
  • A detailed view of the demographic categories of LinkedIn members who click on your ads, available at the account, campaign, and creative level.

Choose your objective

Each campaign begins by choosing the objectives that matter most, across awareness, consideration or conversions.

Choose from the following objectives to customize your campaign:

  • Awareness: Brand awareness
  • Consideration: Website visits, Engagement, Video views
  • Conversion: Lead generation, Website conversions, Job applicants

Your chosen goal—impressions, clicks, or video views to name a few—will determine the rest of your campaign creation experience.

Select your targeting criteria

Selecting your audience works the same way regardless of which ad type you choose.

Reach the right audience by using LinkedIn’s targeting tools for campaign success. Choose from over 20 different audience attribute categories including: 

  • Company size 
  • Company name 
  • Member schools 
  • Member interests 
  • Member groups 
  • Skills 
  • Job title 
  • Job seniority 
  • And more 

Targeting is a foundational element of running a successful advertising campaign – Getting your targeting right leads to higher engagement, and ultimately, higher conversion rates. 

Choose your LinkedIn ad format

Now that you are logged in to Campaign Manager, it’s time to create and manage your ad campaigns. You can use Sponsored Content, Message Ads, Dynamic Ads, Text Ads, or a mix of all four.

Sponsored Content

Sponsored Content appears directly in the LinkedIn feed of professions you want to reach, and comes in three different formats: single image ads, document ads, video ads, and carousel ads. Using Sponsored Content, you can:

  • Target your most valuable audiences using accurate, profile-based first-party data
  • Reach a highly engaged audience with native ads in a professional feed across desktop and mobile
  • Drive leads, build brand awareness, and nurture key relationships at every stage of your sales cycle

Message Ads

Message Ads lets you reach your prospects on LinkedIn Messaging, where they increasingly spend most of their time – and where professional conversations happen. Using Message Ads, you can:

  • Send direct messages to your prospects to spark immediate action
  • Drive stronger engagement and response than traditional email marketing
  • Measure the value you’re getting by seeing which roles and companies are taking action on your message

Dynamic Ads

Select a Dynamic Ad format to personalize your creative for each member in your target audience at scale. Dynamic Ads use LinkedIn profile data – like photo, company name, and job title – to personalize ads. Increase engagement with these three formats:

  • Follower ad: Promote their LinkedIn Page or Showcase Page and drive members to follow their LinkedIn page with a single click on the ad from the desktop experience. 
  • Spotlight ad: Drive website traffic or spark an action like event registration or showcasing a new product.
  • Jobs ad: Increase relevant applicants by personalizing ads to top talent on desktop and mobile experiences. 

Text Ads

Text Ads are simple but compelling pay-per-click (PPC) or cost-per-impression (CPM) ads. Using Text Ads, you can:

  • Easily create your own ads and launch a campaign in minutes
  • Tailor messaging to the professionals you need to reach
  • Pay for only the ads that work – per click or per impression

Set your budget and schedule

Now that you’ve selected your audience, it’s time to set the budget and schedule for your campaign.

There are three options: 

  • Cost per send (CPS) is used when you run Message Ads campaigns. You pay for each message that is successfully delivered.
  • Cost per click (CPC) is often used for action-oriented campaigns like lead generation or event registration.
  • Cost per impression (CPM) model is typically a better fit when brand awareness is the goal.

Along with choosing the right option for your campaign, you will enter a suggested bid, daily budget, start date, end date, and total budget. Regardless of the end date you choose, you can cancel your campaign at any time. It’s also important to note that LinkedIn uses an auction system for bidding that rewards engagement, meaning you can win an auction without being the highest bidder.

Set up your ad creative

The first goal of social marketing is to create a scroll-stopping moment for your audience. Your ad creative is the most important aspect of grabbing their attention to convey your value and convincing them to take a next step with your brand. We recommended creating 4-5 ads in your campaign to give your campaign more exposure and opportunity to optimize for highest performance. Learn how you can create up to 5 ads at one time using the media library.

There are 4 main components that should be considered when building out creative for LinkedIn:

Measure and optimize your campaign

Congratulations, your LinkedIn advertising campaign is live! Now it’s time to see how your ads are performing. You can access your analytics by visiting Campaign Manager and selecting the campaigns you want to evaluate.

You can track your campaign’s overall impressions, clicks, social actions and budget. Social actions are initiated by LinkedIn members who interact with your content – it’s organic, free engagement.

Click through to each campaign to see how each ad within the campaign is performing. Using this data, you can edit your ads, refine your targeting, adjust your budget, and toggle ad variations on and off based on performance.

The Complete Guide to LinkedIn Ads

Learn how to use LinkedIn ads to promote your brand, increase web traffic, find new leads and more.

Without careful planning, social media can sometimes feel like shouting into the void. By using LinkedIn ads, though, you can guarantee your brand’s voice makes its way to the right audience. And, an audience of influential decision-makers at that.

Among the platform’s 690 million+ members, four out of five members have the power to impact business decisions. These movers and shakers also have 2x the buying power of typical online audiences.

Follow along with our guide to LinkedIn ads to discover the types of ads available and the kinds of goals they can help you achieve. We’ll also walk you through the process of creating an ad on LinkedIn and share some of our best tips and tricks that will boost your conversion rates.

Types of LinkedIn ads

LinkedIn offers advertisers several ad placement options.

Sponsored Content

Sponsored Content, also known as native ads, show up your audiences’ LinkedIn feed, regardless of whether they’re scrolling on mobile or their desktop. LinkedIn labels these ads as “promoted” to distinguish them from regular content.

When advertising with Sponsored Content, you can go with LinkedIn carousel ads, single image ads or video ads.

Sponsored Messaging

Sponsored Messaging (previously known as Sponsored InMail) lets you directly advertise to LinkedIn members in their inbox.

Just take note—LinkedIn has a cap on how many members will receive a Sponsored Message ad per month. For instance, a member of your target audience won’t receive one of your ads more than twice within a short timeframe.

While 89% of consumers prefer that businesses stay in touch via messaging, only 48% of companies currently interact with customers and prospects this way.

Text Ads

Text Ads show up along the top and right-hand side of LinkedIn’s desktop feed and are a good option if you’re looking to build strong leads with a professional demographic.

Considering 58% of marketers say that improving lead generation is one of their top digital marketing goals, LinkedIn Text Ads can be a way to cast a wide net on a budget.

Dynamic Ads

Dynamic Ads run in the right rail of LinkedIn and speak to audiences directly through personalization. When a Dynamic Ad pops up in a member’s feed, their own personal details, such as their photo, employer’s name and job title, are reflected back to them.

However, if members find these ads a little too personal they can change their settings to hide these details.

Follower Ads and Sponsored Ads are two types of dynamic ads.

LinkedIn ad objectives

LinkedIn uses objective-based advertising, which helps advertisers build ad campaigns around specific business goals.

Businesses can work through all three stages of a sales funnel, from awareness to conversion.

The three main types of objectives are broken down below.

Awareness ads on Linkedin

To get your brand on the tip of people’s tongues, start with an awareness ad. These ads help get audiences talking about your products, services and brand.

Through these impression-based campaigns, you can also gain more followers, increase views, and spark greater engagement.

Consideration ads on LinkedIn

Opt for a consideration ad if you want to qualify leads already somewhat familiar with your brand.

These types of ads are optimized to help advertisers meet the following goals:

  • Website visits: Get more eyeballs on your website and landing pages.
  • Engagement: Encourage likes, comments and shares, as well as visits to other social media platforms and websites.
  • Video views: Share your business story, your latest product, or a day-in-the-life via video.

Conversion ads on LinkedIn

When you want to generate leads or drive home a sale, consider a conversion ad.

They can help meet these three objectives:

  • Lead generation: Gain leads on LinkedIn by using forms pre-filled with LinkedIn profile data.
  • Website conversions: Inspire more website visitors to download an ebook, sign up for a newsletter, or purchase a product.
  • Job applicants: Spread the word about your company’s latest job opening with a job post.

How to create a LinkedIn ad in 9 steps

To create your own LinkedIn ad, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Create a LinkedIn Page if you don’t have one already

This is required to create Sponsored Content and Sponsored Messaging Ads. If you need help setting one up, read our guide on LinkedIn for business.

Step 2: Log in to Campaign Manager or create an account.

The Campaign Manager platform, also known as LinkedIn’s ad manager, will be home to all your advertising activities, such as running campaigns and managing your budget.

Step 3: Select your ad objective

Think about what type of action you want to inspire among your audience.

Step 4: Choose your target audience

First, you must choose a location, and then you have the option of adding job title, company name, industry type and personal or professional interests.

If it’s your first campaign, LinkedIn recommends a target audience of at least 50,000 for Sponsored Content and Text Ads. For Message Ads, 15,000 is best.

You also have the option of connecting with people you already know through Matched Audiences. You can do this by retargeting people who’ve visited your website or uploading a list of email contacts.

Step 5: Select an ad format

Depending on the objective you chose, you’ll be able to pick from Sponsored Content options (single-image, carousel or video ads), Text Ads or Message Ads.

Step 6: Create your budget and schedule

Campaign Manager will provide a budget range based on other competing bids for your ideal audience.

The initial 2-4 weeks are typically considered a learning experience to figure out what works (or doesn’t). For testing, LinkedIn recommends a daily budget of at least $100 or a monthly budget of $5,000.

Step 7: Start building your ad

If you opt for Sponsored Content or Text Ads, the Campaign Manager will share previews so you can get a sense of the final look of your ad. In the case of Message Ads, you’ll be able to send yourself a test message.

Step 8: Provide payment information

Before you can debut your ad to the world, you’ll have to provide payment information. Once that’s done, you’re ready to launch!

Step 9: Measure performance

When you sign in to Campaign Manager, the first thing you’ll see is the reporting dashboard for your LinkedIn ads. From here, you can review performance metrics, access charts and demographics, or export a CSV report. This is also where you’d go for conversion tracking.

LinkedIn ads best practices

Last but certainly not least, here’s the criteria LinkedIn itself says are vital to crafting a successful ad campaign on the platform.

Figure out your target audience

On LinkedIn, defining where in the world you want your ads to be seen is mandatory. Your desired location is actually the only field that’s mandatory when setting up your ad campaign. You can go broad by only designating the country, state or province, or you can go granular and target audiences by city or metropolitan area.

You can then further refine your target audience with company details (e.g. industry or company size), demographics, education, job experience and interests.

One word of caution: LinkedIn advises against getting over-specific with ad targeting. If you’re new to LinkedIn ads, you might want to try casting a wider net initially and sticking to three targeting facets.

You can also A/B test campaigns with different targeting criteria, such as skills versus job titles, to learn which audiences connect better with your brand.

Craft your ad copy around a succinct, clear call to action

LinkedIn ads should typically end with a clear CTA, often in the form of a text button.

Your readers are busy. They need someone to spell out exactly what they should do next, otherwise, they might miss out on signing up for that career-boosting webinar or purchasing a new product that could simplify their life. Just make sure that your CTA matches the objective you initially selected.

Some effective CTA’s include “Register Now” or “Sign Up Today!”

Choose the right content

LinkedIn can boost your content so it finds the right audience, but that won’t keep people glued to the screen.

Try the techniques below to keep audiences hanging onto every word you say.

Sponsored Content:

  • Repurpose content from your blog, website and social media channels.
  • Use video, audio or other rich media elements.
  • Develop an emotional connection by sharing human interest stories.
  • Do more than just share trending news. Add your insights into the mix to show off your brand’s thought leadership.

Sponsored Messaging:

  • If encouraging brand consideration, share blog posts, webinars, or industry trends and analysis.
  • When developing leads and trying to convert customers, promote product demos, tutorials and success stories or advertise an upcoming webinar or event.

Text Ads:

  • Despite the name of these ads, you won’t want to skip the visuals. Images are optional but they land better results.
  • Instead of including an object or logo, opt for a profile image when possible.

Video Ads:

  • According to LinkedIn, videos under 30 seconds saw a 200% lift in view completion rates, so keep them short and sweet.
  • Design videos for sound-off viewing and add subtitles.
  • Don’t save the best for last. Viewers drop off after the first 10 seconds.

Carousel Ads:

  • Use 3-5 cards to start, and test adding more cards later.
  • Create a carousel of content that speaks to a similar theme or break down a large piece of content into carousel cards.
  • Use visual storytelling to pique your audience’s interest.
  • Each carousel card description should include a CTA and clear, direct messaging.

Dynamic Ads:

  • Skip the brevity and be descriptive as possible in the main ad headline and text.
  • Test image layouts in advance of posting.
  • Include one clear message and CTA in each ad.
