SSI Battle: Mario Martinez Jr. vs. Lindsey Boggs!
It wasn’t too long ago I heard rumors that Ronda Rousey said she could take Floyd Mayweather…true? Who knows, but we now have a fight on our hands that closely mirrors the match-up of a Rousey vs. Mayweather, or maybe better stated Mayweather vs. Rousey.
Coming full circle, to what’s really important in the world of Social Selling, it’s all about the SSI score as advocated at LinkedIn Sales Connect 2015. Why is the SSI so important to a Social Seller? Sales professionals who use Social Selling help best-in-class companies achieve a 16% gain in year-over-year revenue. Today’s top salespeople are using social media to increase their revenue potential, exceed quota, prospect more efficiently, and consistently create a more robust pipeline. Social Selling leaders create 45% more opportunities per quarter than Social Selling laggards, and Social Selling leaders are 51% more likely to hit quota than Social Selling laggards.Top salespeople are using #SocialMedia 2 increase revenue potential & exceed quota. #SocialSelling Click To Tweet

This will be a competition of competitions—One that the world of Social Sellers will want to watch, as two of the best Social Sellers (if I do say so myself), begin a battle to maintain the HIGHEST SSI Score for the next 45 days. The competition period shall begin on Oct. 19 and run until December 1, 2015. It’s a race to see who can have the highest SSI score as posted on Dec. 1, 2015, by LinkedIn.
Can the great Ronda Rousey (AKA – Lindsey Boggs) maintain her score and knock out former middle-weight champ Floyd Mayweather (AKA – Mario Martinez Jr.)? Will the former SSI record holder be able to regain traction and knock Lindsey off the top platform as the reigning queen?
Time will tell who will come out victorious and who will not!
Rules of the competition:
- Each Monday each competitor will publish their SSI scores
- There will be no smack talking
- No biting or scratching
- Everyone wants a clean fight
- There will be 6 rounds representing 6 weeks between the start and the finish
- The period will end on Dec. 1, 2015
- Whoever has the highest SSI score on Dec. 1, 2015, will win. Even if the other held the highest the 6 weeks prior.
Many are asking…is this a fair match up? Let’s review:
Both were keynote speakers for LinkedIn’s Sales Connect 2015! Mario spoke on the topic “Drop the MIC: Driving 100% rep adoption by Making Social Fun” and Lindsey spoke on the topic “Formula for Successful Social Selling: Maximizing your Outreach.”
