Social media, social networks and social selling seem to be everywhere, and everyone is talking about them… but can these really be used to drive sales? ABSOLUTLEY! Social media is a revolutionary, game-changing and incredibly powerful selling tool. The vast majority of sales leaders aren’t leveraging social media because they don’t know how… or even where to begin. Social networks provide a portal to a universe of leads and contacts, but it is also overwhelming and confusing if you and your sales team don’t have the right skills or insights to make it work for you. As sales leaders, the last thing we want is our sales teams wasting time on “tweets,” “likes” or “shares” instead of selling. But what if this is selling?

Social Selling vs. Social Media Marketing
Social selling should not be confused with social media marketing or social media advertising. Social selling is the technique used to research, connect with, and nurture potential leads and customers via social media. It is boosting the relationship by engaging with prospects’ social posts and offering your insights to prospects and customers via social channels. The art of social media for sales leaders can be used to augment the outdated, cold calling strategy of the past sales era.
Platforms like LinkedIn help businesses learn valuable information about their consumer market that they would have never known before. Leveraging social selling increases referrals, conversion rates, and produces a consistent flow of quality leads for your sales team.
