LinkedIn launches document ads for lead-generation

LinkedIn document ads

LinkedIn’s Document Ads would enable brands to collect lead-gen info by gating the content they share on the platform.

Professional networking platform LinkedIn has launched a new ad format called Document Ads. The roots of this new ad format stem from a user inclination that a substantial chunk of users download and read documents and research papers shared on the platform.

Here’s how marketers and brands can make the most of this new ad format:

Choose campaign objective

Marketers can use Document Ads with Brand Awareness, Engagement, and Lead Generation objectives. Choose to share the content freely to build awareness and grow thought leadership or gate the documents with a Lead Gen Form to collect high-quality leads.

Measure Document Ads ROI

Measure the impact of the Document Ads by understanding member interest and engagement with the document. Track what percentage of the document was viewed and total downloads.
