How does social media gain clients?
The world has changed. Traditional strategies and tactics that have worked in the past to acquire prospects, leads and sales are becoming less and less effective. The good news is that there is a new way to be successful in this new digital age: social selling.
Social selling is using social media to find key decision makers, and build long-term relationships. It's about moving past being a sales representative, and becoming a trusted business partner, creating a "win-win" situation for both parties.
Plus, response and conversion rates are significantly higher than cold calling and blast emailing.

I’d like to think when this is all over, companies will realize they don’t need have their sales teams “on the road” 24/7…..unfortunately, I think most companies will only cut down on travel in the short-term. I think the moment something goes wrong (e.g. lose a big deal), virtual selling will be blamed. Sales leaders

Some quick profile tips to help you get a larger viewership on LinkedIn The first thing people check is your LinkedIn profile when you reach out, so it has to sing.

This is social media, not ANTI-SOCIAL media. To be successful with social media, you have to engage with others. If you only post content, it’s like you’re on the sidewalk shouting things through a megaphone. Eventually people will tune you out, and stop engaging with your content. Social media is about reciprocity. Engage with the

When I was in college in the 1990s, the internet was first starting to catch-on. However, most websites were still using their IP addresses, not a domain name (so 188.8.131.52 instead of Amazon.com).

Words matter. For example, “financial advisor” is searched for 10x more than “financial professional.”) When your team writes LinkedIn profiles, websites and sales materials, use words your prospects typically use. This will allow you to get found and be more easily understood. Other surprising results: “Sales” 70x more than “business development” – no one wants
