3 STEPS TO CREATING A SOCIAL SELLING CULTURE

Social Selling is a hot topic in the B2B sales world. However, because tools like LinkedIn and Twitter are free, many initiatives start as grass roots efforts led by socially-savvy sales reps. While this approach can yield isolated successes, repeatable and manageable results require a corporate strategy. This 60 minute Keynote is aimed at sales managers, and executives.

BUILDING A SOCIAL SELLING CULTURE
Exclusive keynote session for sales managers and sales executives

Your company is using social selling tools whether you know it or not. Social selling has grown as smart young salespeople learned to leverage their vast online networks to promote sales and the reach decision makers who are becoming increasingly difficult to find through traditional cold calling techniques. However, this "bottom-up" approach is not sustainable. "Social sellers" are viewed by many companies as prized employees. And unless you learn to create a culture that fosters growth and develops these skills, you run the risk of losing your top sellers to your competition.

Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook are the new marketplace. And without standards, guidance or training - your organization and brand is whatever your connected employees decide it is.This is why it's essential to create a top-down Social Selling strategy, and manage it to achieve higher sales productivity by showing your sales force how to correctly leverage their networks for your business.

Attendees will learn: 

  • The Phases of Corporate Social Selling
  • 3 Steps to Building a Social Selling Culture
  • Emerging Tools and Techniques for Managing Social Selling

M.C., SR. MANAGER, CHANNEL MARKETING, TELEPACIFIC COMMUNICATIONS

I hired Kurt to speak about LinkedIn at a networking event we did at the Polaroid Museum in Las Vegas. He is a dynamic speaker and kept the audience engage. I will definitely be using him again for future events. All guests were excited and took away an experience they will never forget.

D.T., EVP SALES AND MARKETING, WEBBMASON

Kurt truly is a subject matter expert when it comes to LinkedIn business development techniques. Our sales team is energized by what they learned and many were applying Kurt's ideas and recommendations the same day they heard him speak. Kurt is a great presenter and has moved the sales needle here at WebbMason.

J.F., MANAGER-WORLDWIDE SALES, QUOSAL

I learned more about LinkedIn in Kurt's 30-minute breakout at AA-ISP San Francisco than I have in the last several years.

J.P., SALES MANAGEMENT PROFESSOR, HULT INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS SCHOOL

Kurt far exceeded my expectations; and the expectations were very high since I had seen him several times. He really connected with the audience and was very attuned to them and adjusted his presentation as he spoke; and he achieved his goal "to engage the audience."
