LinkedIn advertising gains

LinkedIn advertising gains

LinkedIn's ad platform certainly isn't for every advertiser - but this exclusivity is its biggest strength.

Network directly with CEO’s, Managing Directors, Marketing Executives and every other influential decision-maker at the companies you want to do business with. No other network can offer this kind of exclusive connectivity. LinkedIn has massively evolved over the last few years. It is maturing into an incredibly profitable platform for B2B companies looking to target hard to reach decision-makers. For every money and time-wasting picture of the new office dog by Karen, there are clever and subtle adverts generating fantastic ROI for those in the know.

2020 is the year that LinkedIn comes out of the wilderness. It's still untapped, undervalued and ignored. Don't wait until it becomes saturated and too competitive. It's the worlds largest professional network. Take advantage of it.

LinkedIn advertising from Dark Horse:

Jam hot experience – Industry experts. No juniors or trainees. We actively discriminate on experience and brains. Guilty. Not LinkedIn Certified as there is no such thing. 100% unofficially certified. Guaranteed!

No balderdash – We tell you how it is. You have full visibility in what we do. We don't hide behind pretty reports with stats we want you to see. See what matters to you and that's mega bucks in your account.

Drum recommended or award-winning – Only messing, that would be a folly reason to choose an agency. Any company can be Drum recommended by paying them £1000 per year for the logo and getting three (just three) of your mates to vouch for you. Business awards cost £2000 for a table of 10.

Personality – The unquantifiable bit. You don't want to work with scumbags or companies who offer crap service and poor communication. We work hard and won't rest until we win this for you. We can’t be stopped and are never beaten.
