Finally leverage LinkedIn Ads for your business

You’ve probably considered running LinkedIn Ads in the past… and then discovered that they’re incredibly expensive. Hoping to avoid costly mistakes, you’ve put it off till now.

But you can’t afford to wait any longer to put LinkedIn’s powerful platform to work for your business.

Instead of blowing your ad budget on newbie mistakes, skip straight to a high-performing ad strategy.

In this course, LinkedIn agency partner AJ Wilcox shares the tips, tricks, and methods he’s created over years of creating and managing high-revenue-generating LinkedIn ads. You’ll learn exactly which pitfalls to avoid, where the high-value opportunities lie, and how to strategically target your most valuable prospects.

In addition, you’ll discover

  • How to select optimal audience sizes — which is crucial to generate the right mix of hyper-targeted data
  • The types of offers that drive interest and conversion — without appearing sleazy or scammy
  • How to systematically test offer variations — so you’re always improving performance
  • How to renew interest in your offers over time — to avoid fatiguing your prospects & continually generate results

Finally, you’ll learn how to effectively monitor and manage A/B tests, analytics, tracking, and closed-loop reporting… without stumbling around and wasting hours inside LinkedIn’s ad manager.

This course is right for you if…

  • You’re in B2B marketing
  • Your customer lifetime value is $15k+
  • Your prospect can be defined by their professional facets
  • You have experience with paid ads, but haven’t gotten a handle on LinkedIn yet

This course is probably not for you if…

  • Your customer lifetime value is less than $15k
  • Your prospects can’t be defined by professional parameters or spend little time on LinkedIn
  • You have zero previous experience with paid ads (ex. AdWords, Facebook, or Instagram)
