LinkedIn Adds 3 New Free Marketing Courses
LinkedIn is adding three new courses to its free resource center where people can learn all about how to market themselves and their business.
LinkedIn Learning Labs launched last year and offers basic to intermediate level courses that cover marketing practices for a variety of industries.
The course material is presented in a step-by-step learning path and available on-demand for individuals to complete at their own pace.
It is estimated that each class takes an hour or less to complete from start to finish.
This resource center is an ideal solution for marketing professionals who want to learn LinkedIn best practices, refine their advertising strategies, and keep up to date with new marketing tools.
At launch, LinkedIn Learning Labs was strictly about advertising, but now there are courses that cover organic marketing strategies as well.
Here’s an overview of what’s available in the new courses.
