Become a Social Seller and start Influencing

So how does Social Selling work?

For this, you need a few ingredients. You need employees who are experts in their field of work, content and their online (social) media. Besides this, you need a strategy, goals and (potential) buyers or in case of recruitment: applicants. Yes, Social Selling can also be deployed to attract new employees. 

  • 1. Attract and convince, by sharing relevant content 

    Okay, now we need to mix these ingredients into an irresistible dish. Sales is going to do this, in collaboration with Marketing, by positioning themselves as subject matter experts. They are going to use their online personal brand, to engage with and influence (potential) buyers, by sharing relevant content for each step of the customer journey through their personal networks on online (social) media.

  • 2. Build relationships, and nurture them into paying customers

    A meal often has more courses, so lets serve the next dish. Besides becoming a trustworthy advisor you are also going to proactively identify buyers and decision makers, nurture them into your network and eventually build a relationship until they feel the urge to reach out and buy. Send and Listen to sow and reap.

  • 3. Activate ambassadors, to expand reach and results

    Let’s make it a three-course menu, and finish with a bang. Your employees are the best representatives ever! With Management leading and Marketing and Sales as the driving force, you can activate your proud employees and develop them into online (social) media ambassadors. This will increase your reach and impact, and contributes to your internal and external goals. Add some sugar-coating social and curation tools, such as Sales Navigator, training programs, a content plan and content creation, to make this really work!
