How Financial Advisors Can Crush It on LinkedIn

Some financial advisors crush it on LinkedIn. They see rabid engagement. They get swarmed with sales calls. And their client roster is filled with high-quality clients.  Then there are other financial advisors who haven’t generated even one call from LinkedIn even though they post all the time.

The first group understands the patterns of successful LinkedIn marketing, and leverages these patterns to grow their business. The second group, simply put, doesn’t. 

Here's the good news: Understanding, and then applying, the patterns isn’t as hard as it may seem.
