LinkedIn Marketing Labs is a new on-demand learning center where marketers can access free resources about how to advertise on LinkedIn.

It’s launching with 6 courses curated by in-house experts who have studied LinkedIn advertising best practices across a variety of industries.

Course material ranges from basic to intermediate and are all laid out in a step-by-step learning path.

This is a prime opportunity for marketers to learn more about generating leads through advertising on a platform which generates 5x more conversions than regular landing pages.

LinkedIn Marketing Labs is a solution created for marketing professionals who want to learn the best practices of LinkedIn ads, refine their ad strategies, and stay informed about the marketing tools on LinkedIn.

The initial course offerings cover foundational content such as how to launch your first campaign and how to launch a content marketing strategy on LinkedIn.

All courses can be accessed from the LinkedIn Marketing Labs hub. Upon visiting the hub for the first time it will attempt to tailor a learning path for you based on your job.

It will ask if you run ad campaigns, do media planning, or both.

Each course begins with an (optional) pre-course self-assessment which includes a series of questions designed to evaluate your existing knowledge on a subject.

The main content of each course is set up to be interactive using a combination of text and video. Although LinkedIn estimates how long it should take to complete each course, you can complete them at your own pace.

Each course has multiple components which all have their own individual lessons. After completing a series of lessons there’s a “Knowledge Check” at the end which quizzes you on the material you went through.
