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 courses ranging from basic to intermediate, which covers marketing practices for a variety of industries.
Course material is presented in a step-by-step learning path, and available on-demand for people to complete at their own pace.
It’s estimated that each course 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 the best practices of LinkedIn, refine their advertising strategies, and stay informed about new marketing tools.
At launch, LinkedIn Learning Labs was strictly geared toward advertising, but now there’s courses that cover organic marketing strategies as well.
Here’s an overview of what’s available in the new courses.
