“When we were running our web development firm, LinkedIn was the second largest source of new business (direct referrals were our first.) One could argue that LinkedIn is merely a reflection of your existing network, but we saw plenty of evidence that people search LinkedIn for professional help within 2-3 degrees of separation.
