Welcome to the world of LinkedIn advertising – The modern-day Aladdin’s cave for businesses seeking to discover the treasure trove of professional engagement [don’t mind me, I may be a 40+ yo agency owner, but … I still love Disney.  Always have.  Always will].

As the founder of a cutting-edge digital marketing agency specialising in paid ads management, I’ve [mostly via my paid ads specialist team nowadays, admittedly] sailed the vast seas of online advertising and witnessed firsthand the priceless gems LinkedIn advertising holds, despite its seemingly high costs.

… probably the best example being the offices I rent, i.e in the heart of Docklands, Victoria > 200k per annum > all because I responded to a really well targeted LinkedIn ad, i.e that ad was served to me at the right time and offered offices I’d been looking for for a really long time.

All o’ that said, a 200k return on that particular LinkedIn ad is an extreme example, and a hugely successful one, but for the most part? We’re often talking clients off the ledge re: how much LinkedIn costs to advertise on [spoiler alert: it’s a lot], and whether or not it’s worth it.

Let’s explore that now…

So, why does LinkedIn advertising have a premium price tag?


Understanding the cost of LinkedIn advertising first requires a dive into the unique environment it operates within.

Here’s why LinkedIn’s costs are justified:

  • A concentrated pool of professionals: LinkedIn boasts over 810 million members with a focused demographic of professionals, decision-makers, and influencers. This isn’t a casual audience; these are individuals with purchasing power and the authority to make business decisions, thus presenting a golden opportunity for B2B marketers.
  • High-quality lead generation: LinkedIn’s sophisticated targeting options allow you to hone in on your audience by job title, function, industry, and even company size. This specificity reduces the chaff and increases the likelihood of capturing high-intent leads, which are worth their weight in gold.
  • Enhanced engagement for B2B: With a content-driven platform that caters to professional growth and networking, LinkedIn adverts generally yield a higher engagement rate within B2B markets. This means your content isn’t just seen; it’s considered, leading to higher conversion rates.
  • Brand safety and reputable environment: LinkedIn is a trusted platform with a professional ethos. Advertising here aligns your brand with these values, enhancing brand safety and perception.

Investing in LinkedIn advertising: A calculated strategy for maximum ROI


So, how can businesses leverage LinkedIn’s premium advertising costs to their advantage? Let’s explore how this investment translates into a potent strategic move:

  • Targeted campaigns for needle-moving impact: By crafting campaigns that speak directly to a niche audience, you can move the needle on your business goals. LinkedIn’s targeted approach ensures that every penny spent goes towards reaching the profiles that matter most to your business.
  • Content that resonates with a professional audience: Leveraging LinkedIn’s platform means creating content that resonates with a professional mindset. Whether it’s thought leadership articles, industry insights, or corporate announcements, your content becomes the thought-provoking spark in a boardroom discussion.
  • A/B testing to fine-tune your approach: Our digital marketing agency excels in A/B testing ads to refine messaging, design, and targeting for optimum performance. Investing in LinkedIn’s advertising platform gives you the analytics and testing ground to perfect your approach.
  • The power of LinkedIn’s algorithm: LinkedIn’s algorithm favours relevancy and engagement. By investing in LinkedIn ads, you’re also investing in the power of a platform that strives to deliver your content to those who find it most relevant.
