When you think about how to optimize your social media – and digital media as a whole – be prepared
Professionals and brands alike create profiles, share business-related content, and connect with others in the professional world. LinkedIn advertising is a highly targeted and effective means of raising brand awareness, promoting products or services, and connecting with other business professionals. Once the campaign has wrapped up, we will provide complete in-depth program reporting, followed by a debrief with you to discuss results based on our pre-set KPI’s. We then use those insights to drive strategy for future campaigns. As with any strong marketing strategy, we can always improve results based on ongoing analysis and adjustment.
The quality of targeting options on LinkedIn is unparalleled. With LinkedIn ads, you can target by industry, company, job function, and more. Consultus Digital can help you maximize the power of this professional platform.
LinkedIn is the largest professional network in the world, with over 610 million users across the platform. Over 94% of B2B marketers utilize LinkedIn in some capacity to promote their brands, and LinkedIn is frequently rated as the top social media platform for lead generation. For the right businesses, LinkedIn advertising has the power to put your company on the radar of decision-makers at the companies you’d love to do business with.
LinkedIn advertising, or LinkedIn ads, is the self-serve advertising platform available on LinkedIn. The ads take on many different forms. This includes sponsored content on users’ timelines, targeted direct message ads that appear in users’ inboxes, and display ads that appear to the side of a users’ screen throughout their time on LinkedIn. These ads can display on both desktop and mobile versions of LinkedIn.
LinkedIn ads are managed through the LinkedIn marketing platform with highly customizable creative options and deep targeting. Based on your business goals, there are a variety of different LinkedIn ad styles and formats that can be utilized during your ad campaign. Some of them include:
Each ad type offers a different set of attributes and benefits depending on your campaign’s goal. Some will be good for raising brand awareness; others will be better for lead generation. Using a combination of different LinkedIn ad types is often the best option, as it combines their benefits to maximize their impact.
Much like Instagram and Facebook, LinkedIn advertising allows brands to target users based on a wide variety of different factors. This metadata is similar to other social media platforms but includes a few other targeting options, including:
LinkedIn is a social platform focused on business professionals, and the targeting options reflect their wealth of available business data. This can be extremely powerful for brands looking to attract a particular type of client because you can ensure your content is seen by an individual who holds a specific job title at a specific company.
LinkedIn advertising is vital because it offers a much more focused audience for brands to connect with business people. While Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter generally have a more significant number of active users, those users are primarily on the platform to connect with friends and family or to read content from their favourite news sources and content creators. Conversely, users on LinkedIn are there almost exclusively to connect with other professionals, read content related to their industry, and seek out new employment opportunities.
This more targeted business audience means that brands looking to access the professional space will be able to do so with a much higher degree of accuracy than other social media platforms. This also means that LinkedIn advertising campaigns can have a much better return on investment and improved engagement if your brand is geared towards a professional audience.

LinkedIn ads tend to cost more than Facebook or Instagram advertising; however, this is mainly due to the highly targeted nature of the LinkedIn audience. When your sales cycles are long, and each sale is worth thousands of dollars, the enhanced targeting afforded by LinkedIn advertising can be well worth the extra money. The exact cost will depend on how broad your target audience is, which kinds of ads you run, and how often you want them to appear.
You don’t! LinkedIn ads can be managed by yourself if you can put together the copy and creative – and you understand how to operate their advertising platform. However, a successful campaign requires strategic oversight and experience. So employing a leading LinkedIn advertising agency in Toronto will ensure your ads are designed to drive conversions and get you business going quickly so that you can focus on providing your customers with the best possible experience.
LinkedIn advertising is best suited to B2B brands and those looking to target more senior staff within organizations. LinkedIn can offer deep targeting of users based on their roles within companies and their likelihood of being key decision-makers when it comes to making purchases and closing sales.
