LinkedIn‘s Audience Power

With 722+ million members, LinkedIn grants access to the world‘s largest professional network – 73% based in mature markets like North America and Europe. Crucially, 61 million are decision-makers wielding substantial purchasing power.

Sophisticated targeting options allow honing in on exactly who you want to reach – by seniority, job function, industry, interests, skills, company size and more.
