LinkedIn has recently launched an expanded version of
its marketing solutions platform. 
Equipped with a full-funnel, end-to-end product suite,
the company aims to provide an effective way for marketers to reach, nurture
and acquire professional customers on and off the LinkedIn platform.

The new
offering are designed to help marketers drive more high quality leads, which in
turn will translate into more business for their sales teams.

The platform now has five main pieces, namely LinkedIn
Lead Accelerator, Sponsored Updates, LinkedIn Onsite Display, LinkedIn Network
Display, and Sponsored InMail.

Lead Accelerator allows businesses to divide their
audiences into different segments, and then to deliver ads and content in the
right sequence, targeted to each group.

Russell Glass, the head of products for LinkedIn
Marketing Solutions, said in
his blog
that “this addition reflects the integration and enhancement of
Bizo’s Multi-Channel Nurturing product, which came as part of LinkedIn’s
acquisition of the company in August 2014.”

“It allows
marketers to capture all the behavior about who’s visiting their website, who’s
visting their landing pages, and combine that with the intelligence LinkedIn
has,” Glass was quoted in TechCrunch
as saying. “That’s game-changing.”

Among the 100+ pilot customers of the Lead Accelerator,
eCornell says it doubled its landing page conversion rates, Localytics’ lead
conversion rate increased by 50%, and Lenovo’s cost per lead fell by 60%.

LinkedIn Lead Accelerator will be available in most
markets globally, and sold through a LinkedIn sales representative via an
annual or quarterly subscription. It is currently available in English but will
be expanded to other languages over time.

LinkedIn is also announcing a new Display Network that
allows advertisers to run ads on both LinkedIn itself and on 2,500 publisher
sites across the web.

Glass suggested that with the new products, LinkedIn
can now address the full sales funnel, first attracting customers with On Site
Display and Network Display ads, moving them down the funnel with Sponsored
Updates and Sponsored InMail, and helping with the final stages of customer
acquisition through the Lead
Accelerator
