New Analytics Features

We consistently hear from marketers that one of the most critical and challenging parts of their job is understanding and improving the impact ad spend is having on their business.

That’s why a top priority of ours is to make it effortless to prove the value created by your LinkedIn advertising. Equally important, we want to make it easy for you to know what is working well and what is not and provide specific, actionable suggestions for you to improve your ROI.

Today, we are excited to announce several new enhancements that make it easier to see how you are performing and improve the impact of your LinkedIn campaigns:

  • Expanded demographic reporting — More detail on the types of professionals who are engaging with your ads

  • Campaign insights & recommendations — Hover cards to show how your campaigns are performing and suggest changes to improve

  • More ways to see your campaign impact — New metrics, including the incremental reach gained from LinkedIn members sharing your Sponsored Content, plus simpler ways to get the insights you need.
