Is Social Selling Closing the Deal?
October 27, 2015
The buzz: Stuck. It's Oct. 27. If you're 1/3 through your 4th quarter, we bet your Sales team is putting the pedal to the metal to drive year-end success. But if they use traditional pipeline-accelerating strategies, deals could be getting stuck. Listen up! The Aberdeen Group found that 72.6% of Salespeople using Social Selling outperformed peers and exceeded quota 23% more often. How can Social help you? The experts speak. Barbara Giamanco, Social Centered Selling: “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else” (Albert Einstein). Liam McLaughlin, LinkedIn: “Ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow" (Liam 'Liga baby' McLaughlin). Kirsten Boileau, SAP: “Forget today. Think about the future. While it can be rewarding in the short-term to focus on transactions, it will harm you in the long-term. Build and sell relationships” (Amar Sheth).
