How to create highly profitable audiences on LinkedIn with AJ Wilcox - Ep. #28

If you can describe your perfect customer based on their skills and profession, using LinkedIn Ads is likely to be a great option for you to attract and engage with your audience.

To be honest, in my opinion, LinkedIn in some areas is still catching up with other platforms, like still not offering live video to all, there are also areas when LinkedIn excels! 

My guest today is AJ Wilcox, a LinkedIn Ads pro who founded, a LinkedIn Ads-specific ad agency, back in 2014. He's an official LinkedIn partner, host of the LinkedIn Ads Show podcast, and has managed some of the world’s largest LinkedIn Ads accounts worldwide.

You already know you will love him when he includes in his bio that he's a ginger, a triathlete, lives with his wife and their 4 kids in Utah, and ...that his company car is a wicked-fast go-kart! What's not to love?
