Influential Strategies for Winning Through Social Selling

Don’t miss the Social Media Breakfast Central Minnesota on Thursday, October 27, 2016 when JoAnn Funch presents on “INvest in your connections – Influential Strategies for Winning Through Social Selling.”

Social selling is NOT about selling, rather it is about connecting and serving others in a deeper, more meaningful way.  To understand that concept it is important to view how the buying process has changed. Today’s buyers regardless if that is B2B or B2C are socially driven, they are searching online for a product or service well before contacting you. The decision you want to pay attention to is “will you be the one they buy from?”

Social selling has taken the place of a traditional cold calling strategy.  Sales cycles are often long and building long term relationships are and will continue to be game changers. Just think about it, most of your prospects are already doing research online for what they want, so your job is different, it is to build trust and credibility that you are the person or company they want to do business with.

Social Selling is the new revolution in sales and we must embrace it now, or get left behind.

In this SMB session you will cover these key objectives:

  1. Why adopting a social selling strategy matters
  2. LinkedIn has now become about relationships and engagement
  3. Social selling is about investigative research
  4. Engagement – why, where and how to be more effective and involved
  5. How content creation builds your credibility
  6. Staying top of mind with targeted messages
  7. Developing a serving mentality
