  • (1888PressRelease) December 20, 2012 - BELMONT, Calif. - Joining a team of experts at the New England Broker/Dealer and Investment Adviser Association (NEBDIAA), Gaxiola will provide insight into what the industry can expect in the New Year and provide strategies for overcoming the ever-changing social landscape.

    Gaxiola, a social media evangelist, specializes in helping regulated firms adopt social media best practices to increase online influence and presence. Prior to joining Actiance, he owned Red 7 Marketing, a social media consulting firm serving the financial services industry. Gaxiola frequently participates as a commentator and speaker on social media in the financial services industry, and serves on the advisory board of LinkedFA, a social network for financial and insurance professionals. For over 20 years, he has worked in client-facing B2B and B2C roles in social media, sales, marketing and project management at United Airlines, Wells Fargo Advisors and Westin Hotels.

    "This past year saw many advisors and financial services firms begin implementing social media policies and engaging on these channels. The good news is this is the first step for these institutions to unleash social business strategies, but we have a long way to go before we realize the full potential social channels provide. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and other outlets offer a dynamic way to engage with customers and potential clients, and share insightful knowledge on the industry. Maintaining compliance to regulatory and government mandates can be challenging though, especially if you're not aware of what to watch out for. I'm looking forward to sharing a few tips to attendees at the lunch on how to best engage in 2013 on social while maintaining compliance," said Gaxiola.
