LinkedIn Influencer Marketing
LinkedIn will turn 20 years old in 2023, making this platform nine months older than Facebook. LinkedIn is the oldest of the major social networks still in use today, proving year after year its worth.
LinkedIn started out as a social network for professionals and companies. But now, it’s grown into so much more.

Plan an event
Host live, interactive conversations with your community.
LinkedIn Live events are streamed on LinkedIn with real-time conversation in the comments. To create a live event, the organizer must have access to LinkedIn Live. LinkedIn Live events can be spontaneous or scheduled.
External events are hosted off LinkedIn and promoted on LinkedIn. The organizer must provide a link to an external broadcast location that attendees can use to join the event. We recommend using LinkedIn Live as it prevents attendees from dropping off as they switch platforms.
Add URL, Person, or Page Link Stickers
Improve in-app engagement by trying out a sticker. These clickable boxes drive users to where you want them to go: your website, your CEO’s profile, or your company’s page.
Consumers would much rather see influencer-generated over brand-produced content. In fact, over 60% of marketers shared that influencer-generated content performs better and drives more engagement compared to branded posts.
Why? Humans love humans.
Influencers are creating content for the purpose to benefit others with their valuable expertise. Let them connect you with their network of trusted followers.
Plus, did you know that on LinkedIn, getting likes and comments is like getting shares? Users can see a brand’s post (without following the brand) if someone the user follows likes or comments on the brand’s post.
No Other Platform Checks All The Boxes
Even LinkedIn knows that creators are a huge reason why users keep coming back. If users aren’t searching for a job, they still come to LinkedIn for industry news, professional advice, , and educational information that can help them advance their careers
LinkedIn’s Creator Accelerator Program
FOCUSES ON TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
LinkedIn committed to investing $25 million in creators.
“Creators are subject-matter experts on topics that span the world of technology, innovation, and the future of work: from the impact of artificial intelligence on work, how Web3 can change the world, diversity & equity in tech, to the rapidly changing creator economy. They have a story to tell, knowledge to share and the passion to build meaningful communities.”
– Rodrigo Brancatelli, Senior Director at LinkedIn
WHY INFLUENCER MARKETING IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR BRAND’S SUCCESS ON LINKEDIN
Influencers on LinkedIn are a different kind of influencers. They leverage their professional knowledge. LinkedIn influencers are well-known and credible in a specific field or industry, making this platform perfect for B2B and even B2C.
“Influencer marketing has become increasingly central to the strategy for not just B2C, but B2B marketing too. With their wealth of knowledge, LinkedIn influencers do both seamlessly. They have established trust with thought leaders across all industries, including travel, tech, finance, fitness, and beauty, and their relevant expertise can put your business in front of those key decision leaders for any brand.”
Diana Perlov, Director of Client Success at Open Influence
