Ever wonder exactly how many leads you’re getting from your LinkedIn ads? Now you can know with LinkedIn conversion tracking, which let’s you easily understand and improve the business impact of your LinkedIn advertising. Whether someone converts on mobile or desktop, or whether that person becomes a lead after clicking on -- or even after just viewing -- your ads, you’ll be able to see who’s converting based on their professional profile -- their seniority, industry, job function, company size, and more. And by knowing which ads are converting the right people into leads, you can refine your campaign targeting, creative, and offers to increase their effectiveness. It’s easy to get started with conversion tracking. When logged into LinkedIn Campaign Manager, simply click on the “Conversion Tracking” option at the top of the page. First, decide where you’d like to track conversions. This is usually a page on your company’s website. Next, add the LinkedIn Insight Tag to your site. The Insight Tag is a lightweight piece of code that makes conversion tracking work. Installing it is as easy as adding a normal analytics tag to your pages, and you only need to do it once. Finally, create a “conversion action” and add it to a campaign. An action is a rule that tells LinkedIn when to count a conversion for your business, like when someone completes a form on your website, or downloads your ebook. Save your action, select the actions you want to add to your campaign, then click "Apply" to start tracking conversions on your ads. Now you’ll easily be able to tell how effective each of your ads is, using conversion analytics right inside your Campaign Manager dashboard. And you’ll be able to optimize your campaign to increase conversions and grow your business. Visit linkedin.com/ads to get started right away.

In this video, I’m going to walk through how to create audience segments for your LinkedIn campaigns by uploading CSV files of either email addresses or company names. First, I’ll cover account targeting and how to upload a list of accounts to Campaign Manager. Next, I’ll show you how to utilize contact targeting by uploading a list of email addresses. Let’s start with account targeting. With account targeting, you can run account-based marketing (ABM) campaigns by securely uploading a list of target companies to match against more than 8 million Company Pages on LinkedIn. Combined with LinkedIn’s demographic targeting, account targeting allows you to guide decision makers along their buying journey and ultimately drive sales and qualified leads. To start, navigate to the tools menu and select “Matched Audiences.” Next, select the “Uploaded list audiences” tab. Here you’ll find the button to “Upload a list.” Name your audience segment and select the “Match against a list of accounts” option. Before uploading your list, first check to ensure your list is correctly formatted. Ensure the first row of your lists says “companyname” with no spaces, all lowercase. Next, make sure you only have one company name per row. Check the spelling of each company name to ensure the matching process is as accurate as possible. Avoid using special characters or formatting in your file. Thirdly, use only company names in the first column of your spreadsheet. Finally, save your file as a CSV file. This is the only file format that is supported. To upload a list of email addresses, simply select the “Match against a list of email contacts” option instead. For emails lists, ensure the first row of your lists says “email”, all lowercase. Make sure you only have one email address per row. Avoid any formatting in your file. Thirdly, use only email addresses in the first column of your spreadsheet. Similar to account lists, save your file as a CSV file. Once you upload your file, LinkedIn will begin matching your list to LinkedIn members. It may take up to 48 hours to complete the matching process. LinkedIn is committed to customer privacy and implements security safeguards designed to protect your data. As such, your email lists are hashed on your browser before reaching and being stored in the LinkedIn data center. Account lists you’ve created will appear under the Uploaded list audiences tab. In this tab you can view or add additional account and contact lists. Once your list is uploaded and matches enough members, you can target this audience when creating a campaign like any other targeting facet.

Today, LinkedIn provides a unique and convenient way to target members by company, industry, skills, titles, and more. But what if you want to reach the people you already know? With LinkedIn’s Matched Audiences, you can now easily retarget your website visitors, or upload a list of accounts or email contacts to target with your LinkedIn ads. Here’s how it works. When setting up your targeting, click “Create an audience to retarget” to choose the website visitors you want to reach. Then simply add the LinkedIn Insight Tag on your website.

You can also upload a list of accounts or email contacts by clicking on the “Uploaded list audiences” tab and choosing “Upload a list.” Upload a list of up to 300,000 companies or emails. Once LinkedIn matches enough accounts or contacts, you can begin delivering impressions to your target audience. LinkedIn also easily integrates with data integration platforms to seamlessly import email contact lists. Simply install a set of API keys on your data integration provider, and your lists are automatically imported within 24 hours and are kept in sync.

In this video, I’m going to walk through setting up targeting segments from your marketing automation tool using Marketo, Eloqua or Liveramp. With email contact targeting, you can create groups of email addresses in your marketing automation tool and by using an API key and a secret key, you can pass those lists into Campaign Manager securely and anonymously. Using matched audiences, you can securely market to your contacts that are matched to LinkedIn members with relevant advertising messages. I’m going to start by setting up my marketing automation audience. In tools menu, click on Matched Audiences. Here, I’ll start by clicking on “Account lists”. You’ll notice that next to “Create a contact or company list”, there is an option to connect to marketing automation. Clicking on this option this will bring up a screen that tells me on the next screen, I can grab the API keys needed for my market automation platform of choice. Click Next. This brings up both the Public and Secret API keys that you can plug into your marketing automation platform. For more help on setting up API keys on your marketing automation platform, please refer to documentation provided by your marketing automation provider. Please also note that you can associate your marketing automation API keys with only one Campaign Manager account. Once you’ve successfully implemented the API keys on your marketing automation platform, click Done. Note that you can always come back to this screen by clicking the “Connect to marketing automation link. Typically, within about 48 hours you should begin to see your marketing automation lists populate within your Matched Audiences dashboard. A couple things to keep in mind: First, please note that if it’s a large list, the contacts in the list may come over in portions, so don’t worry if your lists are only partially populated. In addition, if you update the list on your marketing automation platform, it may take some time for the refreshed list to appear on LinkedIn Campaign Manager. Once the data is transferred to LinkedIn is it hashed and secure, which means you cannot access the specific email or personally identifiable data within Campaign Manager. All changes must be done through your marketing automation platform. Once your lists appear, you should be able to target your list when creating a campaign like any other targeting facet. To show you how you can target this list, I’ll begin by creating a new campaign. I’ll give it a name, and choose a sponsored content to sponsor. Here on the targeting page, I’ll scroll down to this second field, where you can target email contacts or companies. You can either begin typing to find your marketing automation segment, or click on “See full list” to select the lists you want to target. Once you’ve done that, you can also layer on any additional demographic targeting parameters, but we typically don’t recommend targeting a very narrow audience– hypertargeting can limit your exposure and prevent your campaign from delivering to as many of your matched audiences as possible, so start wide (with an audience of no fewer than 500,000 members) and then narrow your audience down when possible. Once you finish setting up your campaign, click Launch. If your marketing automation list has matched enough members, it will begin delivering impressions. If you clicked Launch but it hasn’t met the minimum number of matched members, it will automatically start delivering impressions as soon it meets that minimum.
