(Uh oh. That's not good for you.)
SOCIAL SELLING is the art of using social networks like LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook to find, connect with, understand, and nurture opportunities with your ideal audience. It’s the modern way to develop meaningful relationships with potential customers that keep you and your brand -- both your personal one and that of your organization's -- top of mind, making you the natural first choice for consideration when a prospect is ready to buy.
Yes, it's possible to sell more by "selling" less when you see the value of dropping the old-fashioned, interruptive and often aggressive tactics of the past. Instead, become a valuable trusted resource all along your buyer's decision making journey - attracting opportunities, rather than chasing them -- and possibly chasing them away!
