As evidenced by the popularity of the blog: “5 Must-Haves to Look for From Your Social Media Archiving Provider”, we are pleased to see that social media archiving continues to be top of mind for advisors and compliance officers alike.

We appreciate you taking the time to read our blog as it contains invaluable advice on this important decision.
As an advisor, Henry Becker looks at social media very much like anything else he does. Every decision he makes is, more than likely, linked to some regulation or rule. That does not need to prevent him from dong his job. The compliance storm that is swirling about the use of social media appears to be holding back some advisors from using it in their practice.
Day in and day out, our team is in the trenches interacting and listening to our customers and peers and how they use social media.

We found it compelling that he has found an approach that enables him to leverage a broad menu of platforms while managing content creation (Hootsuite – which we happen to love too!) and archiving/backup (ahem, using Arkovi) from consolidated tools. All of us welcome your feedback, comments and questions.
