    We’ve added new campaign group metrics for LinkedIn Ads in Databox, allowing you to get even more granular into the performance of groups of campaigns you’re running on LinkedIn.

    Campaign groups are used by advertisers on LinkedIn to group related campaigns, either by various target audiences, marketing objectives, demographics, etc., together.

    By doing so, they can answer questions like:

    • How does campaign engagement differ by region?
    • Which ad type is most effective for various demographics?

    Campaign Groups are an organizational tool in your LinkedIn Ads Campaign Manager.

    They’re accessible on your account’s overview page by selecting the Campaign Groups tab.

    Once you have Campaign Groups set up in your LinkedIn Ads account, you can track and visualize their associated performance in Databox.

    In Databox, Campaign Group has been added as a dimension to 11 basic LinkedIn Ads metrics. This means you can go beyond general metrics like impressions and clicks in order to dig into specific things like:

    • Impressions by Campaign Group: So, let’s say you have a campaign group set up for all campaigns launched in the US, and one for all campaigns launched in the UK––you can compare impressions across both campaign groups to see which region is seeing more of your advertisements.
    • Conversions by Campaign Group: Maybe you have a campaign group set up for all of your text ads and one for all of your sponsored InMail ads on LinkedIn. Now, you can measure both of these campaign groups against each other to see which ad type generates more conversions.

    Each metric is pre-built, meaning all you have to do is drag-and-drop it into a dashboard and the visualization will populate automatically.
