Social Selling – Part 2: The Future of Sales?

August 20, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 7

The buzz: We’ve Got The Blues!

Global WebIndex [adweek.com/socialtimes/time-spent-online/613474] reports that 28% of time spent online – averaging 1.72 hours/day – is on social platforms, which reach 70%+ of all Internet users.

Reality check: Social selling is not optional for your business. Not anymore!

Pressing questions:

  • Is traditional phone/face-to-face sales engagement a dinosaur?
  • Can your top sales people still win without a digital footprint?
  • Will the Social Media Bubble burst and be replaced soon?
  • Should Social Selling be owned by Marketing or Sales?

The experts speak – as they channel The Blues Brothers, Elwood and Jake.

Kurt Shaver, The Sales Foundry: Elwood: “It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses.” Jake: “Hit it.”

Kirsten Boileau, SAP: Elwood: “Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, don’t fail me now.”

Jim Fields, SAP: Jake: “How often does the train go by?” Elwood: “So often that you won’t even notice it.”
