Key takeaways from today:

  • People do business with people. Be yourself, build long-lasting relationships and build trust.
  • Social selling has the added benefit of building your personal brand, and it opens doors to new opportunities. 
  • Social selling is about giving value and having personal conversations in a scalable way.
  • Showing your personality is an effective way to break through the noise.
  • A strong social presence means warmer sales conversations overall. 
  • Always be connecting with relevant prospects, but don’t pitch them immediately. 
  • In outbound sales, personalization of the messaging is key. Video is as personal as it can get, and increases reply rates dramatically.
  • LinkedIn is not the only channel, Twitter or TikTok can be a powerful channel for social selling as well.
