A little outside the norm of what we typically post, but thought this article offered some good insight and counsel on the use of LinkedIn.

We all use LinkedIn and we probably have some Agencies that have connected with us.

Are these Agencies victim of these “stinky” LinkedIn practices?

Do they bring you value in your “relationship” or are they just one big ole’ self promotion machine?

If you’re thinking about working with a new firm, give their LinkedIn, and their Twtter feed, and their Facebook page a look.  It’s a great way of looking behind the curtain without physically lifting the hood.

LinkIn with those you’re considering and see how they react.  Could prove telling to how they’ll operate with you long term.
