Using Digital Prospecting to Connect with Buyers

Vengreso has solidified a two-step process that works to generate referrals. Here it is.

Two Steps for a Perfect Digital Sales Referral:

  1. Look at your target buyer and assess mutual connections.
  2. Reach out to at least three of your mutual connections and ask for a favor, and, if they have a strong enough relationship, to make the introduction.

If during the first round of contacting three people you don’t get a positive response, try again. Reach out to three more mutual connections.

Digital prospecting is perfect for selling in the modern age and since B2B buyers are to engage when introduced, you need to start seeking out referrals on LinkedIn.
