LinkedIn Executive Coaching
You may have heard the term “social selling” buzzing around blogs and other marketing circles and perhaps wondered if it was something that could apply to your own business. This term is nothing new, but like most things on the web it has evolved and LinkedIn has proven itself an incredible tool that countless salespeople across the globe swear by to help acquire, nurture and close leads. It’s basically another tool in your marketing toolbox.
So does this relate to you and your business? Absolutely! Businesses of all types of verticals can benefit from leveraging their social profiles to position themselves as an expert in their field, establish relationships, build trust and ultimately turn them into sales. It can benefit:

Here’s How And Why It Works:
We start with the platform – LinkedIn is the one social platform where B2B decision-makers are present for business purposes and engage there to inform themselves on their industry, make connections with like-minded individuals and maintain and/or build relationships with colleagues. The social selling processes is centered around building a relationships and trust so LinkedIn’s landscape is a perfect fit. It’s not about bombarding random people with marketing messages and hoping they are interested in what you have to say or sell.
From the most bare-bones, the idea of social selling is to identify your ideal prospects, connect with them, observe, use content to position yourself as a leader in your space, and then, when the time is right, seal the deal.
