LinkedIn Case Studies

Here are my picks for useful and interesting applications of LinkedIn to business. Because LinkedIn specializes in facilitating executive relationships, its members are often quite conservative when pushing the envelope by using a public social network. Hence, there are fewer case studies in LinkedIn than elsewhere, but they will increasingly surface in 2011-2012. Here we will highlight individuals’ and organizations’ uses of LinkedIn to achieve meaningful outcomes.

CASEstudy: Financial services firm grows at competitors' expense by using LinkedIn, Twitter & legacy communications. Notice that Jefferson, an investments firm, engaged its channel (financial advisors), using LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter and legacy marcom. Their momentum enabled them to maintain their pricing while competitors felt compelled to lower theirs. Another powerful lesson is, during "downturns," don't follow the herd and cut sales and marketing investments, especially when you can use social business to magnify impact as Jefferson did.
