Why Does Your Business Need LinkedIn Advertising?

LinkedIn is unique in the sense that it encourages users to provide as much data about themselves as possible. However, unlike Facebook, which encourages you to do it for social reasons, LinkedIn users provide their information for hiring purposes. This means that the information is more readily available, allowing you access to search criteria such as:

  • Location
  • Education history
  • Work history
  • Job title
  • Years of experience
  • Their connections

What’s more, your advertising options are quite varied, allowing you to create ads for a variety of purposes. You can use it to hire new talent, become an industry leader, or to sell your company’s products or services to teams or management leaders who would benefit.
