This episode with Bryttney and Tim really got me thinking about the power of people.
A well-known face will always perform better than a brand logo.
The new LinkedIn thought leader ads will allow marketers to capitalize on the power of the people who we work with day-to-day.
By using people's natural inclination to buy from other people, we won't be fighting such an uphill battle.
We'll be able to use a Nearbound approach in our paid marketing efforts.
By surrounding prospects with subject matter experts, you've already got built-in trust.
Maybe your SMEs don't have a ton of followers, but they do have trust and authority. By boosting their posts, you'll be able to use their content to build engagement with your brand.
Am I alone in thinking that this is going to be a massive way to leverage the power of Nearbound?
