Social Selling is a sales strategy that is about building value-based relationships with important key people and decision makers. In this blog post, we will dive into some interesting numbers and insights about social selling.

The buying process has been digitized and has meant that sales and marketing departments need to adopt new strategies to be able to prospect new customers and build long-term relationships. Social selling has become the dominant sales strategy in many industries.

Social Selling is about thinking long-term in its way of building relationships with its customers. The only reason you want to make contact with people in the relevant industry or profession, is that you first and foremost want to get value, not to sell a product or service. It is the people behind the brand that you want to reach, and it is more about giving and not about getting something back.

Social selling is effective – you can increase your lead generation by 33%, compared to traditional sales. 89% of the top-performing sellers say that a platform like Linkedin is important for closing a deal. The advancement of social media has made social channels a “to-go-to” for salespeople to reach their target audience and prospect customers.
