Here's how to make your 1st LinkedIn Ads report on Google Data Studio with Porter in 3 steps.

1) Authorize your connector

Authorize your Google account

After accessing the LinkedIn Ads connector, authorize your Google account on Data Studio.

Click the AUTHORIZE button:

Then select the account you will use in Google Data Studio:

Click the Allow button:

Authorize your LinkedIn Account

Once you authorize with Google, you should also authorize with LinkedIn.

Then, you should log in with a LinkedIn account with access to the ad accounts you will report.

You should have Billing admin, Account manager, Campaign manager, Creative manager, or Viewer roles in Campaign Manager to connect the LinkedIn accounts.

And you should have a Super admin role for the LinkedIn page.

Porter Metrics only stores your accounts and LinkedIn profile to manage your subscriptions; we don’t store or share your business data with any third party.

You can check our privacy policy for more details.

Note: if mistakenly logged in with an incorrect account, you can disconnect your LinkedIn account and restart the process described before.

2) Configure your connector

Once you connect your LinkedIn account, you will set up the connection with these parameters:

Ad accounts: choose one or more LinkedIn Ads accounts to bring to your report.

If you choose several accounts, the report will combine their data (i.e., it will bring the total ad spend from all the selected ad accounts).

After you finish the setup, click the Connect button on the top-right corner of the page.

3) Load your report

You’ll see a list of the LinkedIn Ads connector's fields to Data Studio, then go to CREATE REPORT in the top-right corner of the page:

Finally, confirm the creation of your report by clicking the Create report button:

Our default report template will be automatically loaded.

If your report loads successfully, you’ll start a 14-day free trial for the LinkedIn Ads connector.

Now, try other connectors, too!

Once your trial is over, you may upgrade your Porter plan.
