There is an amazing tool in LinkedIn you may not be aware of. It’s called the Social Selling Index (SSI). It measures some powerful key performance indicators and is updated daily. The scoring is based on:

  • Effectiveness of our professional brand
  • Finding the right people
  • Engaging with insights
  • Building relationships

We are so proud that our SSI places us:

  • In the top 1% Industry ranking amongst Sales professionals in the Marketing and Advertising industry.
  • In the top 4% ranking amongst people in our network.

In the B2B world cold selling is out – making meaningful connections and therefore warm selling is in, and one of the ways to do this is by using the power of LinkedIn. Here are some remarkable statistics from LinkedIn:
