LinkedIn conversion tracking, long a privilege for the chosen few, was rolled out to advertisers this August. Pixel-based conversion tracking has been the staple for AdWords, Facebook, Twitter and other third party analytics apps. LinkedIn has been late catching up to this. Now, with the roll out of the conversion tracking for all advertisers, LinkedIn is letting users/advertisers understand the full impact of their campaigns right from the dashboard.
With the implementation of the LinkedIn Insight tag, you can record website conversions tied to your Sponsored Content or Text Ads campaigns, including content downloads, sign-ups, purchases, and more. You can track how many times members converted after clicking (post-click) or viewing (post-view) your ads. You can also measure the true value you’re getting from your LinkedIn advertising on desktop and mobile, including return on ad spend, cost per conversion, and conversion rate — all using analytics from LinkedIn Campaign Manager.
LinkedIn utilizes a “last touch” attribution model with a 30-day look back period. It credits one unique conversion per individual (the earliest one) within the window and only credits a campaign or ad if that conversion is associated with the campaign.
Digital world has a lot to offer and for any advertiser this feature of LinkedIn is not to be ignored. It’s a feature that can ease the tracking of conversions and help optimize ads accordingly. In conclusion, LinkedIn’s Conversion tracking helps you analyze completely. Stay tuned for latest updates from this space!
