NEW YORK, April 23, 2013 - While asset managers' use of social media to garner more business from advisors has surged in recent years, only 26% of firms attempt to quantify their returns on those efforts, according to a new report from kasina entitled Building a Competitive Social Media Competency. As a result, three-quarters are missing valuable opportunities to develop more effective campaigns that drive bottom-line results and demonstrate the value of social media to gain more resources and firm-wide participation.
"As financial advisors become increasingly hard to reach through traditional means, asset managers must become more adept at showcasing their products and expertise where advisors are-in social media," says Jenny Chu, Senior Research Analyst at kasina. "But too many firms are flying blind. Without a carefully crafted strategy and tracking what works and what doesn't, they'll never maximize their results."
