Why Inside Sales Reps are Rocking the Social Selling World

The shift from having salespeople in the field to maintaining and inside sales force has been going on for years. It’s a simple matter of ROI. Inside salespeople cost less to employ and the constant introduction of new communication technology allows inside salespeople to acheive similar...

Social Selling Can Add 150 People to Your Marketing Department

I recently told executives at business services company that they could grow their Marketing Dept. by 150 people without increasing payroll. This is possible because Social Selling tools like LinkedIn and Twitter can turn every one of their 150 field salespeople into a mini-marketers.

The opportunity to gain a competitive advantage lies in the fact that salespeople have a higher degree of trust with their customers than does the corporate Marketing Dept. It makes sense because salespeople have personal relationships – the very essence of “Social”. The challenges are that few salespeople have been trained for message creation, they don’t have much time for it, and they may not even be authorized to communicate certain types of messages.

So, how does a corporation take advantage of the opportunity while overcoming the challenges? It is a matter of training and, in some cases, systems, to insure salespeople adapt to the new ways of Social Selling.

Here are recent events that signal the rise of Social Selling in various industries.

Jill Rowley of Eloqua Scores Big in Social Selling

I recently posted a 2-minute LinkedIn self-assessment where people scored from 0-100 based on answers to 10 questions. Of the hundreds who took the self-assessment, Jill Rowley of Eloqua score the highest (96). When I congratulated Jill (dubbed the “EloQueen), she said, “Feel free to post my name and a linked to my LinkedIn Profile so people can see how I use it.”

Her response struck me as a perfect example of the Social Selling attitude. She was genuinely transparent and willing to share information to help others. Since Jill is a Social Selling thought-leader who has been interviewed for countless articles and appeared at conferences, I decided Jill would make a great subject for my first audio interview.
