Video Ads Are Finally Coming to LinkedIn

The site is running a closed test for sponsored content

Prudential Financial and Microsoft Canada are part of the several hundred companies in the initial test group, and LinkedIn said it plans to make video for sponsored content available to all brands in the first half of 2018.
