LinkedIn Ads Evolve: Generative AI, In-Stream Video, Conversation and Thought Leader Features Unveiled

As Seen On


LinkedIn, the leading professional networking platform, is known for its constant efforts to upgrade and enhance advertisement tools and formats, thereby ensuring better targeting and achieving an impressive return on investment (ROI). The platform has recently unveiled its plans to introduce Generative AI, In-Stream Video Ads, Conversation Ads, and Thought Leader Ads, all designed to aid advertisers in leveraging the vast potential of LinkedIn marketing.

Section 1: Testing Generative AI

AI Copy Suggestions is an innovative feature that generates ad headlines and text copy using artificial intelligence. The primary purpose of this tool is to offer dynamic and eye-catching ad content based on advertisers’ LinkedIn Pages. This not only enhances the ad’s appeal, but it also ensures its relevance while simplifying the ad creation process for advertisers. The tool is currently available to only a limited number of users, but LinkedIn plans to expand its reach in the future, ultimately accommodating a broader spectrum of businesses.

Section 2: In-Stream Video Ads

LinkedIn aims to foster a greater connection between advertisers and audiences by offering pre-roll and mid-roll video ads. These ads appear before or during long-form video content, capturing users’ undivided attention on both mobile and desktop platforms. The In-Stream Video Ads will be featured on the LinkedIn Audience Network, allowing marketers to expand their reach and improve ad performance more effectively.

Section 3: Conversation Ads (Availability in July)

Beginning in July, Conversation Ads will provide a more interactive and personalized advertisement experience through multiple call-to-action buttons. This approach allows potential customers to engage with ads in a more meaningful way, ultimately leading to better conversions and customer relationships. Additionally, Conversation Ads offer lead collection capabilities, enabling advertisers to easily gather valuable data about their target audience.

Section 4: Thought Leader Ads (Availability in July)

Thought Leader Ads enable companies to promote content authored by their executives and employees, bolstering their brand image, and credibility in the eyes of LinkedIn users. By doing so, companies can effectively amplify their thought leadership and contribute to industry-wide conversations. To utilize Thought Leader Ads, advertisers must have Direct Sponsored Content Permissions in place, ensuring that promotional content meets the platform’s guidelines.

Final Thoughts

LinkedIn’s continuous stride towards creating and upgrading advertisement solutions holds significant potential for advertisers and ultimately enhances their ROI. The introduction of AI-generated ad copy, In-Stream Video Ads, Conversation Ads, and Thought Leader Ads marks another milestone in the platform’s commitment to offering unique, engaging, and personalized ad experiences. As LinkedIn advances its advertising ecosystem, marketers can enjoy a more comprehensive and efficient approach to reaching and connecting with their professional target audiences.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
