It’s the perfectbreakdown, and exactly what TEKsystems was hoping toachieve.” In all, the campaign delivered more than 1.1 millionimpressions to its targeted audience, including more than170,000 unique audience members. The campaign’s brand-focused banner ads achieved a click-through rate of .07 percent,nearly double the industry norm. “We also got great data toshow that we were hitting our demographic target—and weonly paid for those impressions,” says Kane.The campaign also revealed another interesting piece of insight.“Usually, adding a testimonial to a landing page will increasedownloads because it increases trust,” says Kane. “When we didthat in this case, it didn’t have nearly as much of an impact. Thattells us that people were already at a high level of trust simplybecause they’d seen the ad on LinkedIn, and that trust carriedover to the message they saw at the landing page. It’s anotherexample of the quality of the LinkedIn environment for peopleseeking to do business.”Visit to learn how other marketers havesuccessfully met their marketing objectives.On other platforms, you end up getting a lot of interest from lower-level managers who aren’treally going to translate into sales, but LinkedIn helps you target the CIOs and senior ITexecutives you need to drive new business. Robust tracking and reporting helps us verify thatwe’re reaching the right people.”Jason Kane, Account Director, Anvil Media Inc.“Combining direct response and brandingFor the TEKsystems campaign, AnvilMedia used a two-pronged strategythat combined direct response withbranding. “Self-service LinkedIn Adsare really strong for targeted leadgeneration, getting higher qualityleads than other platforms, andwe’ve found it especially useful fordirect response,” says Kane. ForTEKsystems, Anvil ran ads, where prospectscould download free white papers,case studies, and other contenthighlighting the impact of using ITstaffing services to fill mission-criticalpositions. These ads werecomplemented with concurrentbanner ads focused on theTEKsystems brand; these also drovetraffic to the company’s website andthe free downloads available there.“Our campaign worked as a one-twopunch, putting the TEKsystemsbrand front-and-center in front ofthe same audience who was seeingour text ads.”
