All products and plans

Connect your LinkedIn Ads account to HubSpot to manage and analyze your LinkedIn ads in HubSpot's ads tool. Once connected, HubSpot will display and report on all existing campaigns in that account.

Please note: to comply with LinkedIn's legal requirements, HubSpot only reports on the most recent year of your LinkedIn Ads account data.

LinkedIn Ads connection requirements

  • If you've installed an ad blocker extension for your browser, make sure you disable it when you connect your LinkedIn Ads account and when you're using the HubSpot Ads tool.
  • The HubSpot user who connects a LinkedIn Ads account must have Publish access to the ads tool in HubSpot.
  • The HubSpot user who connects a LinkedIn Ads account must be an Account Manager in that LinkedIn Ads account. To check user permissions in your LinkedIn Ads account:
    • Navigate to the Campaign Manager
    • Select your LinkedIn Ads account.
    • In the upper right, click the gear icon dropdown menu and select Manage access.

Please note: LinkedIn Ads accounts that are on hold cannot be connected to HubSpot. If a connected LinkedIn Ads account is put on hold, it will be disconnected from HubSpot. An error will show in HubSpot next to any LinkedIn Ads accounts on hold. Learn more about how to remove the hold status in LinkedIn's documentation.

Please note: if your LinkedIn ad account has any outstanding billing issues, or has otherwise been disabled by LinkedIn for a violation of their ad policies, HubSpot will mark the account as Inactive. To fix this issue, check your LinkedIn ad account settings and consult LinkedIn's support resources.

The connected LinkedIn Ads account will appear in your Ads Accounts settings in HubSpot.

Once your LinkedIn Ads account is connected, your can connect additional users so that they can manage and create campaigns for the account. You can also disconnect ad accounts from within your ads settings.

Necessary disclosure: your use of the LinkedIn Ads integration is subject to LinkedIn's terms and conditions. HubSpot will be able to view and manage your account, as well as store your LinkedIn Ads account number. When you authorize the integration, HubSpot receives a user token with permissions on the connected ad accounts and pages. HubSpot can view but does not store all the ad accounts and pages you have permissions for. LinkedIn will share settings details (e.g., name, budget, bid strategy, creative) and performance metrics (impressions, clicks, etc.) for all campaign groups, campaigns, and ads in the ad accounts you connected.
