Janet Fouts is a social media expert and joins me on the Salesman Podcast to see how the average salesperson can leverage social media to close more deals in the real world.
Is social media affecting sales or is it just hype?
We start the show with Janet explaining why social media is a vitally important tool for all salespeople.
“People are evaluating products online before they make purchases and so we’re dealing with a much more informed consumer base. Social media gives us the power to inform them.”
Janet and I then give a few examples of how salespeople can be part of the informing process and some practical tips that you can take away from the show and implement into your sales strategies right away.
We cover –
- How easy is it really to build an audience on social media
- Why you need to become a thought leader in your products space
- Should your company set all this up or is it down to the individual
- How to become unsackable
- Why you need a strategy
- How to use social media to break out of obscurity
