I have been writing more and more articles on social media, and more specifically on LinkedIn over the past few months following our readers and clients request. During our last LinkedIn’s webinar, I was surprised to see that about half of our attendees were not really active on LinkedIn nor were they using some of the most advanced features designed to grow their personal brand.
As a result, I invited our readership to answer 11 questions on how they are currently using LinkedIn. I was pleased to see that 349 financial advisors and investment advisors took the time to fill this survey and share their experience using this specific social networking site.
