How to Advertise in LinkedIn
LinkedIn Advertising is a highly cost-effective method to reach more business owners and decision makers.
You will be able to reach well defined, highly specific groups of users on LinkedIn, target users by job title, experience, industry etc. If you are able to define your target audience, then you can reach them by advertising on LinkedIn.

How to Get Most Impact from Your LinkedIn Ads
Here are some tips to make impacts from your LinkedIn ads:
Make sure your messages are simple and powerful. The effectiveness of marketing is all about the copy in many ways.
Your LinkedIn ads must be relevant to the industry and the people you are trying to reach. Make sure that the copy, images or photos, or any other elements of the LinkedIn ads are appropriate and effective.
LinkedIn offers a variety of tools to make sure only the right people see your messages, based on seniority level in a company, industry, and other factors. So pay attention to targeting and take advantage of those tools.
Sometimes only with marketing the ad may not be working. That’s why you have to test different headlines, body copy and images and also even different target markets to figure out what’s working and what doesn’t.
Along with that you should be monitoring closely the performance of your ads — the results of your testing — so you can quickly “roll out” ads that are bringing in leads and sales you want.
