LinkedIn Adds New Alerts and Lead Management Options to Sales Navigator

LinkedIn update

LinkedIn has announced some new additions to its sales navigator platform. The platform can provide more solutions to businesspeople who are working remotely and who cannot hold their regular meetings with clients due to the pandemic.

Firstly, LinkedIn added two new machine learning-enabled alerts. This helps keep salespeople aware of their business's activities that are relevant to them.

  • Buyer Interest Alerts- These alerts are signalled when employees and leadership at a saved account engage with your company's LinkedIn page or website. Buyer Interest Alerts will give you buying intent insights that will help you decide when's the right time to engage.
  • Relevancy for Alerts - Through predictive technology, LinkedIn will help you find the most critical alerts. This ensures you don't neglect anything that may be important in developing a relationship with your buyer.

These updates could help businesses pounce on potential opportunities at just the right time. As well, LinkedIn is adding a new 'Outreach' listing in its Lead Lists. This addition provides an overview of your LinkedIn activity with each contact you make.

Google Makes it Easier to Control Shopping Ads by Country

Google shopping alert

A new attribute from Google will allow you to exclude certain products by country. If your Google product feeds are set to display products across various countries, there's an additional field to give you more flexibility. You can now use the shopping_ads_excluded_country attribute to keep select products from getting displayed in certain countries you're targeting. 

For example, if Canada is your primary country of sale and you decide to add U.S and Mexico as additional countries in Merchant centre, you can use the shopping_ads_excluded_country attribute to exclude some products from getting advertised in the U.S or Mexico Shopping results. So now, with this attribute, you won't have to create separate feeds for each country to control which products are shown where.

LinkedIn Sells SlideShare to Scribd

Scribd acquired SlideShare, a digital library leader for books, audiobooks, and other professional works from LinkedIn. Scribd has purchased the digital library with a mission to change the way people read by providing access to the world's best content.

Scribd specializes in hosting millions of user-uploaded documents-like business templates, study guides, self-published stories, books, and more. The acquisition includes everything from SlideShare's 100 million users, its hosting tools, and its entire archive of presentations and documents. This means that if you are a SlideShare user, this means that your account and uploaded content are all safe.

Although Scribd is a subscription service that offers unlimited access to its entire library for $9.99 per month, SlideShare will remain a free service. To see other details about the acquisition that are important for existing SlideShare users and the new content at Scribd, read on!
