Show Transcript: You've heard about LinkedIn Sales Navigator, but you're not sure if you should be using it instead of ads or in combination with them. Well buckle up, it's time for the full scoop.
Welcome to the LinkedIn Ads Show - here's your host, AJ Wilcox.Hey there LinkedIn Ads fanatics.
So Sales Navigator is one of those topics that comes up a lot in LinkedIn circles. So I got one of the top organic LinkedIn pros to come on and share his wisdom with you. Phil Gerbyshak is one of the most well connected people I've ever met. He's provided sales training for everyone from the Fortune 500, all the way down to small business owners, and everything in between. We're going to talk about everything from what Sales Navigator is to who in your organization should be using it, as well as how it will complement your ad strategy.
First in the news, my apologies for the last several months with no episodes at all. I've got a ton of great episodes and a bunch of great content planned, but they may come sporadically for the next little bit while I'm dealing with some personal and family issues. But so much has happened with LinkedIn Ads since the last episode. So let's run through some of them. The first is the Twitter user @DannyGavin, who's a VP of Marketing for an agency. He brought to my attention when his rep sent him an actual document of the types of things that LinkedIn expects to be affected when iOS 14 rolls out. And of course, by this point, we already have iOS 14.5. But it's a cool graphic that I'll share with you. Then a few weeks later, one of my own account reps send it to me as well, but Danny gets props for getting it to me before my reps. So thanks for that. We're, of course going to have a whole episode all about the cookie-geddon and the effect on LinkedIn Ads. But for right now I'll just say LinkedIn has this available, ask your rep. And I'll go deeper into it in a future episode. Next, I want to point you to towards one of the best podcast episodes I've ever heard. So there's a podcast about Facebook ads specifically and it's called Next Level Facebook Ads Podcast hosted by Phil Graham. And specifically, the episode that I want all of you to go and listen to is Episode 196. How I'd spend $20 per day on Facebook Ads. The whole goal of of his podcast episode is just to talk about like running low budgets and testing. But what he ended up doing was showing a masterclass on how to approach testing and optimization, AB testing, how to strategically test through your your content. So I'll link to that in the show notes. I highly recommend going to listen to that episode, I absolutely could not have said it better myself. Then I was really excited by something I saw in my inbox. This been a couple months ago, but LinkedIn started sending out new emails with a subject line that says you have a new comment for review. This was back at the beginning of March of 2021. When I got my first one. And I was so excited by this because if you've talked to me about comment moderation inside of sponsored content, you've probably gotten an earful about how, how difficult it is, as a company to moderate and plan and understand the comments that are coming in. So with this one, some of our clients started getting emails that says, "hey, you got a new comment, click here to see it". Now there's a whole lot I wish we got with
