Nice article. Twitter is the electric glue to conference events and it was used very effectively at the MarketCounsel Summit that Gotham Tech Labs, makers of <code>Wealthbox CRM and the inbound marketing network, </code>Wealthbase, attended. Relatedly, our <code>Wealthbox CRM product is coming out of beta and launching to financial advisors in February. It's a "social CRM" app that allows advisors to monitor social activity and import contacts (prospects, clients) on social networks like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. We're pre-seeding the app for new advisor users and are delighted to include </code>RIABiz, @hdelux, and others in Wealthbox’s social activity stream.

Thank you Gotham…you’re teetering precariously on the edge of self-promo here.

Fair point, Brooke. Sorry about that. (We had requested an ad rate card a couple of months ago and no one replied back! : ) ...Will request again via email.
