Changes at LinkedIn Create New Marketing Opportunities – eMarketer


LinkedIn is a company undergoing massive transformation. It is moving from its roots as a business-oriented social network and becoming a business-to-business (B2B) content publishing platform, according to a new eMarketer report, “Marketing on LinkedIn: New Opportunities, but Old Issues Remain.”

With that change comes a variety of new ways companies can market and advertise, including native ads in the feed and PowerPoint-style ads using technology from SlideShare, which LinkedIn acquired last year.

The ad revenue picture for LinkedIn looks positive. eMarketer forecasts that worldwide ad revenues will reach $376 million in 2013, up 46.7% from last year.

Slideshare – Social Amplification Blows Up the Good, Bad, and Ugly

“Before you do ‘trial-and-error’ social media marketing, you’d better plan ahead and be ready for it to blow up – good OR bad. The opportunity for marketers is to leverage social amplification instead of sticking ads in social media sites.” – Augustine Fou

The Third Screen

In digital marketing, the third screen is often seen as the “holy grail” since it is a device that most users have with them 24/7. However, that doesn’t mean advertisers have the right to “spam” people at all hours with messages, no matter how targeted.
