How do I create a LinkedIn InMail campaign?

After knowing the function and benefits of the LinkedIn message ad or commonly known as the LinkedIn InMail campaign, here’s the step-by-step process of how this LinkedIn feature is crafted:

Navigate to Campaign Manager

If you’d like to check the status of your ongoing campaigns, the Campaign Manager is the key. You can locate it on your profile.

Select Sponsored InMail

In this stage, choose the best option that will best fit your goals.

Enter an account name

Choose a thumb-stopping and catchy name that best represents your business or brand. If you have an existing page, you can simply link it to your account.

Set up sender permissions

This is one of the crucial stages of LinkedIn InMail messaging as the sender represents your brand by carrying your message to your target audience. Typically, you will be chosen automatically as the sender, but this LinkedIn InMail campaign feature also allows you to task someone as the sender. However, keep in mind that the person you chose is your first-degree connection or first-degree LinkedIn network on LinkedIn.

Craft your content

According to LinkedIn, LinkedIn messaging limits up to 200 characters in the subject line and up to 1,900 characters in the body section. In crafting your message, be reminded of the guidelines given by LinkedIn that include the following:

  • Customize your salutation with %FIRSTNAME% %LASTNAME%.
  • Make sure your message is concise, personal, and relevant. Body texts under 500 characters can get higher engagement.
  • Add hyperlinks to your body text to make it more interactive.

Be creative

In this section, make sure that you include a banner image with an optimal size of 300x250 pixels to prevent other LinkedIn message ads to appear on your slot.

Preview your InMail. You can also set up A/B tests

Click the envelope visible on your screen to send yourself the message’s test version, and the middle icon to duplicate the campaign to set up A/B tests.

Select your target audience

It’s best to aim for around 100,000 to ensure scale to effectively use LinkedIn for prospecting and lead generation.

Set bid and budget

LinkedIn’s Campaign Manager will suggest a bid range to reach your target audience. It’s a good idea to bid at the high end of the bid range. Once you set your bid and budget, you’re finally ready to launch.
