At Salesbread we often get a few calls from potential clients who are shopping around for a Linkedin lead generation agency In some cases, founders are looking for the most cost-effective option, and in other cases, they might be calling to just figure out what to expect to pay on average.  If this sounds like you… Read this.  For your perusal, we will compare the average pricing of 4 of the top Linkedin lead-generation agencies (Note: This article is based on research from around the web and various reviews. It will provide an average of what you can expect to pay. Very few b2b lead generation services actually list their exact pricing on their websites. For more of an in-depth answer, you might have to get in touch with these agencies directly.)

Before we dive in, consider this first…

There are various ways of generating leads on Linkedin. So think about which form of marketing would be the best for your company.  If your target audience is younger and spends a lot of time on social media, you might want to consider hiring an agency that specializes in Linkedin social media marketing.  Or if you would like a more direct approach to finding qualified leads, a Linkedin outreach agency like Salesbread might be the better choice.  You can choose from:
  • Linkedin ads
  • Linkedin content marketing
  • Linkedin social media marketing 
  • Linkedin outreach
Different lead generation companies specialize in different forms of marketing. 
But according to Hubspot, Linkedin seems to be the platform of choice, especially for B2B social media advertising.
Think about where your target market spends most of their time and then come up with a marketing strategy to capture their attention on that platform. For example, if you are getting most of your quality leads from Instagram, focus your marketing efforts there. 
In this article, we will mention the top 4 Linkedin lead generations and which form of marketing they specialize in, as well as their pricing
Let’s dive in.

2. Impactable – Linkedin Ad Agency

Impactable is a b2b Linkedin Ads agency that will help create more brand awareness on the platform for your business. Linkedin ads can be quite costly to run.  The average pay-per-click for Linkedin ads is about $5.39 depending on your budget.  There are 2 other tiers as well. Cost per impression and Cost per send. So you will either pay per 1000 impressions, per click, or per send.  BUT in saying this, there are various factors that can affect this. Such as your target audience, your relevance score, and your bid.  (We personally don’t run Linkedin ads, and have had a few clients mention to us that they spent a ton of money on Linkedin ads, and sadly received a big fat zero number of leads If you would like an in-depth assessment of why we don’t suggest Linkedin ads, you can read this article. )

Impactable Pricing

If you have a look at the above table you can expect to pay between $1,299 – $4,250 + per month.
