The social sales opportunity
With years of experience, you as a sales professional are very qualified and able to help a client define, prevent, or solve a problem. The big challenge is, how do you accomplish this in a world where an anonymous client does not know of your existence? That is where social selling comes in. In a nutshell, it is you showcasing your expertise online in such a way that it draws your client’s (and a search engine’s) attention.
