Add LinkedIn Destinations for Audiences

  • Updated

Context

When adding LinkedIn as the Destination for an Audience with Orchestration, you can select one of the following actions to define how you want the new Audience to be created and used in LinkedIn:

  • Create New: Creates a new Audience in LinkedIn to use in your campaigns.
  • Create New And Replace: Creates a new Audience in LinkedIn to use in place of an Audience you are currently using in your LinkedIn campaigns. 
  • Use Existing: Allows you to select an Audience in LinkedIn to overwrite. You can only select Audiences in LinkedIn that were created using the Demandbase LinkedIn Integration that are not actively syncing to a Demandbase Audience. 

Tip: If you need to update the Destinations added for an Audience, you must first Deactivate it from the Scheduler tab. Be sure to Activate the Audience after saving your changes to resume syncing.

Next Steps

Click the Scheduler tab to schedule and activate the Audience to start syncing the accounts or people that meet the Selector criteria to LinkedIn. The first sync takes between 24 and 48 hours to complete and subsequent syncs run nightly. 

Tip: You can remove Destinations for Audiences set to Inactive. To remove a Destination, click the Delete icon Delete_Destination.png.

After the first sync finishes, the Destinations tab shows a dashboard with information about the Audience's status and metrics.
