Get started at the LinkedIn Advertising Campaign Manager dashboard.

2) Sign in to LinkedIn’s Campaign Manager
at
https://www.linkedin.com/ad-beta/new-advertiser. This is your advertising dashboard where you will select and pay for advertising.

3) Next, choose your preferred advertising method. Choose from:

Sponsored Content: These are “native” ads in your prospects’ LinkedIn home page news feed. Native ads look like other content in the feed so as not to disrupt the news flow. Learn more: business.linkedin.com/marketing-solutions/native-advertising.


LinkedIn sponsored InMail
LinkedIn Sponsored InMail is optimized to be viewed by computer or phone and shows up on top of all your recipients' InMail messages.

Sponsored InMail: These are personalized, targeted LinkedIn InMail messages (like email messages, but sent through LinkedIn). Learn more: business.linkedin.com/marketing-solutions/sponsored-inmail.

LinkedIn text ads.


Text Ads:
These are ads at the top or side of your prospects’ LinkedIn pages that feature a simple, clickable headline, description, and small image. You can buy these ads as pay-per-click (PPC), so you pay only when someone clicks your ad, or cost-per-impression (CPI), where you pay for every ad view.
