LinkedIn's Social Selling Index (SSI)—free for all

LinkedIn's SSI, previously available only to paid users, is now available for all. The SSI scores you from 1-100, based on four social selling elements: establishing your professional brand, finding the right people, engaging with insights, and building relationships. It also tracks your progress over time so you can see where you improve, and compares you to people in your industry and network. See yours here.

The formula was created based on how top-performing sales professionals use the site. LinkedIn also provides details on how to improve each segment of your score.
