Self-Branding 101 for Salespeople
Today’s consumers and your prospects are looking at your online profiles. What impression are they getting about your brand?
Optimizing your personal branding for sales doesn’t have to take hours. Mark and Mario agree that you can position yourself as a person of influence in only five to ten minutes a day. Simply find content to share, engage in conversations, and give people a general idea of who you are as an individual and as a salesperson.
Here’s a few questions from Mario that you should answer in your LinkedIn Profile:
- Who do you help?
- How do you help them?
- What business problem do you solve?
- Who have you helped before?
DON’T brag on your social media profiles and be cautious about being too “salesy.” Otherwise, you WON’T attract prospects to your InMail or email inbox.
If you’re a novice to digital selling, remember that posting alone isn’t going to make sales. Digital selling is about building relationships and helping people. Don’t pigeon-hole yourself to one medium; use them all! And as Mario says, “Strive to turn every online conversation into an offline discussion.”
