LinkedIn announced today, March 29 that it is providing companies to use video in its platform for marketing enhancement. Native video uploading for users was rolled out in August 2017. Now it’s time for businesses to enjoy video usage designed for the spectrum.
Today’s announcement includes video capabilities for sponsored content and company pages. Using videos is indeed one of the most effective tools for receiving conversion heights in businesses, as pointed out by Abhishek Shrivastava (Director of Product, LinkedIn Marketing Solutions) regarding LinkedIn’s observation in the demand.
The LinkedIn B2B video for Sponsored Content ads can use any target of advertisers ranging from job title to skills targeting and even Matched Audiences targeting. These ads are incorporated with LinkedIn’s Lead Gen Forms product for driving site traffic to generate leads for businesses. Tracking progress is possible as well, with LinkedIn tracking pixel, the conversion tracking tool that helps in measuring a number of leads, website visits and more.
Similarly, the video for Company Pages enables businesses and publishers to place video right on their company pages.
B2B marketers and professional audiences and professional contacts — they can use the video [tool] we’re launching across their funnels. Whether they’re looking to generate brand awareness, sending people to websites to take an action or connecting leads, they can showcase the video and if the member watching is interested, they can collect the leads right away. – Abhishek Shrivastava (Director of Product, LinkedIn Marketing Solutions)
Both the products are being rolled out presently, with all businesses touching the providence to finish within coming weeks. The likes of Goldman Sachs and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines have shown support. They emphasized on video content being a most crucial element to open doors for gaining ROI.
LinkedIn had been on a spree in conducting tests since last year to come up with video capabilities in order to compensate the increasing demand from businesses. It has been realized finally!
