Greg Mischio shares tips for social selling by harnessing the power of LinkedIn.
Why, oh why can’t you get your sales team to engage on LinkedIn? For sales and marketing leaders, this is a head-scratcher, especially when you consider the research. According to LinkedIn, salespeople who engage in social selling are significantly better than their peers:
- 78% of social sellers outsell peers who don’t use social media.
- Social selling leaders are 51% more likely to reach quota.
Yet despite these stats, many salespeople resist the potential of using LinkedIn.
Marketing pros — eager to boost sales and add another avenue to help deliver marketing messaging — will roll out training programs to the sales team, but often to no avail.
Though it may seem impossible, with a lot of empathy and by using the following four steps championed by other marketers, you can get salespeople to engage:
- Understand the main reason why they’re not engaging.
- Create a sales-friendly training program that’s relevant to sales.
- Promote “content-light” LinkedIn tactics.
- Set goals tied to sales and track them.
