LinkedIn recently launched a new feature which allows users to reach their target followers organically, without spending a penny. So what does it mean and why is it a good thing?

Well, until now targeting was only available for paid campaigns. However, this latest feature empowers you to customise your organic posts according to your follower traits such as company size, industry, job function, and others. Now you can engage with the followers that are most valuable to your business and provide them with specific content that is suitable for their needs.

Benefits of LinkedIn organic targeting include:

  1. Reach the right audience: By targeting posts to specific followers, you can ensure that content is seen by the people who are either the most likely to engage with it, or that you most want to engage with it.
  2. Increase engagement: When content is seen by the right people, you’re more likely to see higher engagement rates such as likes, comments, and shares.
  3. Improve conversion rates: Targeting posts to specific followers can increase the likelihood of conversions, whether that means website visits, form fills, or other desired actions.

To track the success of your targeted posts, we recommend using LinkedIn’s metric tools. These tools make keeping up with progress and engagement easier. Being able to track metrics such as views, impressions, clicks, and engagement helps refine target audiences and optimise content to achieve higher engagement levels for next time.
