How to Engage Affluent Investors on Social Media

February 5, 2013

Why are finance companies increasingly turning to social media to connect with affluent investors? Because more than five million use social media to help with financial decisions. Of these, 73% use LinkedIn – more than Facebook, Google+, and Twitter combined.

So how can finance marketers engage with this valuable audience on social? To start, marketers must understand what types of information affluent investors are looking for. In a joint study by LinkedIn and Cogent Research, we answered this question by surveying over 600 mass affluent, affluent, and ultra affluent investors.

What content should you be developing to ensure your social presence is informing financial decisions? The top three types of content investors want are: 1) market and economic trends, 2) new product information and 3) background on your company.
