What is Social Selling
Buying and selling have always been social activities, like chatting about gardening service companies over the neighbour's fence.
Today, these exchanges happen online. Social selling is the practice of using social media to connect with prospects, develop a rapport with them, and engage with potential leads. The tactic can help businesses reach their sales targets.
By leveraging your professional network for sales prospecting, LinkedIn is arguably the most effective social selling platform. We create a pipeline of leads by connecting with prospects in your industry, bringing them into your network, and reaching out to them via direct message.
The best news? We automate this process!
We use a tool that carries out personalised actions on your behalf, saving time and doing the hard work of finding and qualifying leads for us. This allows us to reach out to several people every day.
Once your LinkedIn social selling is optimised, your business will attract the right prospects and engage with new potential buyers.
