When LinkedIn was first launched back in 2003 it was very much set up and viewed as a resume posting network. It was very focused on job search and being used by recruiters and hiring managers.
This is no longer the case. Now more people are using LinkedIn for sales, business development, thought leadership, funding and many other uses.
The sales factor on LinkedIn can be used to help you understand how you are reaching and leveraging LinkedIn. Whether you are in job search, sales, hiring or for any other professional use, this Social Selling Index, as it is called, can really offer you a weekly snapshot of your effectiveness on LinkedIn........
My score was an 87 out of 100, which is great and puts me in the top 1%. What was your score?
