Marketers are Shifting Advertising Budgets to LinkedIn

LinkedIn | January 30, 2019

Marketers are reportedly shifting advertising budgets away from platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and spending more on LinkedIn ads. According to a programmatic advertising survey conducted by DigiDay, 42% of media buyers plan to increase their ad spending on LinkedIn. Around 47% plan to keep their LinkedIn ad budgets the same and 11% said they would decrease spending. DigiDay’s survey data is based on 290 media buyers who already utilize LinkedIn. One of the reasons why marketers may be increasing their LinkedIn ad budgets is because the ads are more expensive to buy. LinkedIn video ads, for example, can be 6 to 8 times more expensive than a video ad on Facebook. A unique benefit of LinkedIn ads, arguably justifying the added cost, is the ability to target business professionals.
