LinkedIn is growing, and the company plans to continue doing so with mobile as a focus. LinkedIn is growing, and the company plans to continue doing so with mobile as a focus. LinkedIn expects that 50% of its user traffic will come via mobile by the end of 2014, and recently added an Android app for SlideShare in an effort to build out its mobile offerings. The site already receives more than 50% of its traffic via mobile from countries like Costa Rica, Malaysia, Singapore and the UK, according to a LinkedIn blog post.
We believe that if you can’t measure a campaign you can’t manage it. Analytics drive the development of the correct strategy, the assessment of the deployed tactics’ effectiveness and the building of ROI models.
In today’s hyper-fragmented online and mobile environment, and with audiences bombarded by marketing messages, campaigns cannot just rely on passive consumption. They need to engage the target audience to break through and generate positive ROI.
