For example, if you are selling products or services to manufacturing companies, you are able to aim your campaign to 390,000 working professionals on LinkedIn.
You can also narrow your reach within the manufacturing industry to just the automotive sector, with 72,000 LinkedIn users in Malaysia.

- Manufacturing: 390,000
