Five categories for effective social sellers “Social Selling TV”

In this episode of Social Selling TV we look at five categories for effective social sellers and top sales performers.  This video will looks at Sales Personality Traits, Departmental Mindset, Self Sales Development, Referral Selling and leveraging Social in the Sales Process.

 

Will Social Selling Programs get more prospects and increase sales revenue. Social Selling TV

Will a Social Selling Program strategy guarantee you more qualified buyers, prospects thus increasing more sales and generating more revenue. The simple answer is it depends?

Sure social selling is an effective strategy that can generate more leads and build brand awareness but at the end of day, the sales process begins and ends with the salesperson’s skill set. Does the salesperson have the communication and management skills to get appointments, qualify leads and close deals?

Social is just a tool to use to engage and enable the sales process. A great tool at that when leveraged correctly.

Sell More Make Personal Sales Development Training a Priority Social Selling TV

Sell More Make Personal Sales Development Training a Priority a new episode for Social Selling TV.

What do today’s savvy sales representatives do to excel in sales?  They value ongoing sales training and personal development as part of their sales process.  They make it a priority to learn above and beyond typical standard level of corporate sales training.  They understand what it takes to bring insightful information to their prospects creating a competitive advantage.

The sales superstar takes personal responsibility and accountability to self train.  They are not waiting on corporate training programs or the marketing department to provide knowledge base training material. They are motivated and committed to learning.  At the end of the day you are accountable for your sales goals and quota.

Networking VIDEO “Putting Social in Social Channels”

A face-to-face meeting at a networking event is a great way to connect. We all attend networking events, meetups and social functions but how do we connect and build a relationship or business connection. Do we follow up with a phone call and set up a future meeting? Do we go online later and connect through social media channels. The simple question how do we engage and move the conversation along.

I am obviously passionate about leveraging video and social media to connect. What is the next best thing to being there it’s VIDEO.

In Lehman’s Terms let’s put the social back in networking and reconnect via social channels.

The use of video today is my tool of choice.

*Nothing beats face-to-face meetings, speaking, networking and referrals using video is a great option to reconnect. Get Social with Networking Get Social with Video.

Direct Message Tweet “Video Response” Thank You Followers

In Lehman’s Terms I love to position and leverage video as tool for social engagement.  I made a series of videos to update some of my twitter followers on the power of 140 text characters, simple update on my end and attempt to open further dialogue. My method was a direct message tweet that was customized to each follower using simple text and video. My goal was to create a visual and engaging message to connect instantly and thank them for being a follower.

I am not a big fan of automatic direct messages on Twitter after we just connected especially if the message is impersonal. In some cases this technique can be viewed as spam. Get to know me first and build the relationship. Make an effort to do the research and look over my profile first etc.

I do feel it is important to acknowledge new followers and connections on Twitter, LinkedIn etc and a simple value-centric response is warranted at certain times.

The engagement process starts early. Your buyer expects immediate value, social proof, as a salesperson your company has to establish advanced online credibility to be more effective.

Establishing social proof, advanced credibility is done by having compelling and engaging content. How do you stand out against the competition? Is your online presence sufficient? Is your company website, blogs, social media profiles including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and video Hosting Sites compelling for your target market customers.

Are you visible, using Video, now that is a great tool to leverage social proof and build credibility for your customers and prospects.

Reconnecting my 1st Level LinkedIn Connections Video

First of all, I want to THANK all my first level connections on LinkedIn for connecting.  I started using LinkedIn back in March of 2007.  If you are open networker with thousands of connections or you have a smaller more intimate network, LinkedIn is a powerful collaboration tool.

 

Last week, I started to evaluate my social media networks on the basis on connections and contact engagement.  Why are we connected? What is our network relationship?  In some cases we engage frequently other cases we are a simple contact name on a growing list.

The purpose of this Video Blog Post is to put a name with face using Video to simply reconnect again on LinkedIn.  I would love to hear more about you and your business.  Please feel free to reach out and contact me if you need any assistance with my network or want to engage in more dialogue.  Let’s take full advantage of our connection on linkedIn and collaborate.

Now to put it in Lehman’s Terms

1)       Thank You for Connecting

2)       Let’s Engage, Reconnect and Collaborate

3)       I value our LinkedIn Connection on all levels of engagement

Sagie “The Dog” is not a LinkedIn Connection but a loyal contact.  How are we connected?
