If you are not on LinkedIn or if you are not active on it, you are missing out on networking opportunities in the world's largest professional network to connect with and grow your clientele.
If you are one of those who feel that LinkedIn is not relevant in Asia, you are sadly mistaken. Here are some statistics on why LinkedIn should be an important pillar of your prospecting and personal branding strategy:
- 500 million members in over 200 countries and territories
- Southeast Asia has over 22 million members
- Asia Pacific has more than 118 million members
- Strong membership in individual countries across the region

Most connected countries and places
Singapore makes it to the top five list of the most connected countries in the world. Coming in third, Singapore members have an average of 152 connections.
The Greater Jakarta Area also makes it to the top five list of the most connected places. It is fourth on the list with 225 average connections.
Each connection matters
Do not underestimate the power of growing your network, one connection at a time. Every connection you make grows the total reach of your professional community (and potential clients). Each connection reflects an average of 400 new people you can get introduced to and begin to build relationships with. In due time, you will have a network of engaged and high income earners - 40% of users use LinkedIn daily and 44% of Linked users earn more than $75,000 in a year.
