Social Networking for B2B Sales

Increase presence and digital engagement. Social selling for business to business sales people.

Social Selling.

In the old days before that rise of the Internet and easy access to everything, buyers relied on salespeople for information and granted them a chance to begin building a relationship, early in the buying process. The social selling aspect of the job once included sharing food and drink.

No more!

Today, buyers get their information and even pricing guidance, online. Today's salespeople need to be masters of digital engagement. Those who ignore the need to follow customers online and engage in social selling, risk being consigned to end of process engagements that deny the opportunity to develop understanding and trust.

New ways demand new methods. Salespeople must learn how to build relationships through digital tools so that customers are more willing to engage in the traditional manner. In the new world, relationships are built electronically before any form of direct contact.

This programme involves participants in learning practical, step by step, digital engagement methods that reclaim the opportunity to develop trust and understanding, early in a customer's buying process.

LinkedIn training is included along with step by step instructions for establishing a broad digital presence using blogs, twitter, and social networking for business to business sales.
