Some time ago I set out to use analytics to gain followers. Not just any
followers to increase the count but a focused and targeted look at
specific people would would most likely benefit from the topics I hover
around. The goal was to gain anywhere from 1000 to 1500 as the most
likely number but in time, LinkedIn became more "social" and it seems
now that number should be revised higher but nevertheless the original
experiment yielded the proper results... 1000 focused followers. Thanks!
