LinkedIn has a portal specially designed to deliver business solutions that involves hiring, marketing, selling and learning solutions.

It鈥檒l just depend on your goals to define which one to choose.

But, getting the Click Through Rate (CTR) you expect is as hard as target the right audience; in most of the cases Linkedin will provide you a huge audience. The reason of it lays on the idea to reach as many people as possible. Nevertheless, what companies really need is qualified leads in order to increase their CTR with relevant people that鈥檒l become customers.

As you can see in the graphic, you鈥檒l be in front of a large number of users which means the cost will be high in order to reach that amount of people. Another option can be to be more precise to define your audience but it that case the issue will be the time you鈥檒l need to spend to do it and a lack of skills: you will need to be an expert.

Most of Ads campaigns created offer a good CPM but a really low CTR. In other words, afford or even manage such a big audience can easily become a strong pain for your brand and therefore your ads simply won鈥檛 be efficient as you expect. 馃う鈥嶁檪锔
