- Well, as the name suggests LinkedIn Ads is the Advertising platform provided by LinkedIn for Social Media Marketing. Even though LinkedIn’s Advertising domain is not as strong as Google Ad Words it does work out pretty good on many levels with ‘Target Audience’ being really specific one can rely better.. and further filtering options given vary from Region/Country, Company and some advanced options such as “Similar Audiences” , making it better to work on their B2B Social Media Marketing.
