As much of the B2B buying process continues to move online, social networks have become fundamental to the success of sales organizations. In fact, sales professionals who use social networks for sales achieve a 16 percent gain in year-over-year revenue, four times better than at typical companies.

They also believe that LinkedIn is largely a resume repository where salespeople go to hunt for new jobs or be poached by the competition.
