Why is Social Selling Important?

Social selling means using social media platforms to increase reach, facilitate sales prospecting, and promote sales. And with so many people using social media, it’s the obvious place to focus on if you want to improve your sales.

Plus, with the advent of COVID-19, leveraging online tools for sales is more important than ever. Whether they’re working from home or the office, you’ll have their attention. You can connect with clients seamlessly as they respond to the pandemic in their area.

Social selling benefits include: 

  • Increased reach
  • Multi-channel engagement
  • Shorter conversion times
  • Increased conversion rates
  • Improved relationships
  • And more!

Leveraging Social Platforms to Improve Sales

Unfortunately, while most people know how to post to platforms like LinkedIn, they don’t yet understand how to leverage social media to make sales. Social selling is more than posting pictures and ads. It involves creating an effective, branded online presence, connecting in meaningful ways with potential leads, adding value, and moving the conversation to close.

Ask yourself, do you understand the power of social media in the sales process? Is your company leveraging social selling? If not, it’s time to learn exactly how.
