Successful sales professionals understand that social media is now a must-have business tool. But very few understand how to incorporate social into their account based sales strategy. As a result, their unsolicited invitations go unanswered, their lead generation campaigns under deliver, and they wind up with long lists of unengaging posts and wasted sent messages.
The Answer Is Simple: Put the “Social” Back in Social Media
Today, the average B2B sales pro and account based sales rep relies on outdated tactics that fail to engage the 21st century buyer—cold calling, sending cold emails, and stalking prospects on social media. These practices alienate potential customers and eat up company time and resources in the process.
It’s time to stop hiding behind screens and start making connections! Remember, people do business with people, not with technology. The unsolicited LinkedIn invitation, the random Facebook post, and the salesy private message just won’t work in account based selling.
What will work? Using social media to actually be social, not to sell. Instead, make new connections and relationships in the virtual world that boost sales in the real world!
Learn How a Referral System Transforms Your Social Media Selling
Social media provides great opportunities to build trust and rapport, and to identify referrals sources—but not to generate sales leads.
Unless a connection comes from a referral, it’s not a qualified lead. Make no mistake: If you are trying to sell on social media, you’re cold calling, not social selling. And you’re now caught in the tangled web of diminishing returns.
