Shocking Case Studies

American Institute of CPAs

If you live in American then you might have already heard about American Institute of CPAs, AKA, AICPA. It is the biggest organization in the world containing top accounting professionals.

What AICPA did was remarkably productive.

Due to the loss of exchange of information among the peers, the firm found it necessary to create a community that allows their members to engage, share resources and exchange relevant knowledge as well.

 

The purpose of this community-building platform for their members was to enhance their social media skills as well as provide a smooth transition of information for an increased productivity.

Instead of creating a tool for it, AICPA created a group (and subgroups) for their members on LinkedIn. They later used LinkedIn Display Ads along with other social media platforms to promote the availability of group to its members. For AICPA, it became a successful asset.

Today, more than 60,000 members of AICPA are regularly sharing their insightful discussions and exchanging relevant information in the group. But that’s not it.

AICPA got more than it envisioned. Now, their leading traffic driver is the same LinkedIn group that they created for their members. It is also playing a big role in creating brand awareness of the firm. This clarifies how powerful LinkedIn can be, if utilized the right and effective way.
