The buzz: “Trust, but verify.” (Spoken by Ronald Reagan, translated from the Russian proverb, “Doveryai, no proveryai”)
Social Selling is real! How do we know? The numbers tell us.
For example… Sales people not using social media missed their quota 15% more often than peers who do (Hubspot). Directors with SSI > 70 were promoted 1.6X faster to VP than those with SSI <30 in the past two years (LinkedIn profile data).
But you may still need to convince your entire sales organization to internalize and adopt a new selling and engagement strategy.
How? Get the right training and follow-up programs.
