Poll: Which social media tools are helping you win new business?
Almost 20% of advisors have gained a new client from social media, despite the limited social media involvement of many advisors, according to a press release from SEI, “SEI Survey: Advisors Start to Realize the Business Benefits of Social Media.”
LinkedIn and Twitter have both contributed directly to my winning new clients. My active participation in LinkedIn Groups has brought me new connections and kept me visible until they had a project that required my help. Twitter has helped to a lesser extent.

Twitter has been more beneficial as far as generating clients, but I did recently get a new client from my Facebook Fan page. Facebook seems to drive more traffic to my website than Twitter, though.
Thank you for sharing! I wonder why Facebook drives more website traffic, while Twitter produces more clients.
