Give Your LinkedIn Performance a Boost With Group Targeting

Over the last few years, I have continued to watch LinkedIn CPCs rise (especially in the US), which means that CPAs increase as well. For some advertisers, this pattern isn’t sustainable and I have seen B2B advertisers with a lot of potential hang up their LinkedIn hat in search of cheaper leads elsewhere. If you (or a client) is considering cutting back on LinkedIn advertising or throwing in the towel altogether, I have something you need to test before you do anything: Group targeting! Why ...

Why it’s a no-brainer to have women in your startup’s exec team

While women have made strides toward better representation in leadership roles over the last decade, the progress has been slow and labored. According to a recent Global Gender Gap Report via LinkedIn and the World Economic Forum, women continue to hold under half of the leadership positions across fields – in many industries, we make up less than 20 percent of upper management. The problem is, closing the gender gap in leadership won’t happen overnight. The solution starts with hiring more wome...

5 Powerful Steps for a Distinctive Advantage in Your Brand’s Growth and Recognition.

Do you have a brand? Does your brand differentiate you from the competition? But before you answer that, let’s take a look at what a brand is, and what it is not. Let’s start with what a brand is not. A brand, according to Marty Neumeier is more than a business name. In addition to that, “a brand is not an identity. A brand is not a product. A brand is not a logo either.” David Ogilvy, the father of advertising, defined a brand as “the sum of a product’s intangible attributes”. Furthermore, in t...
