Using social media for lead generation – what we like to call Social Selling – is where the most successful salespeople are concentrating their efforts in today’s extremely competitive digital marketing landscape. We can teach you and your team how to master social selling.
Innovative salespeople and sales teams understand the buying process is happening with or without them. So if your salespeople are not online and leveraging social media sites to build and promote their personal brand and the products they sell, they are likely missing sales opportunities.
Today’s salespeople need to be able to adapt and stay relevant with today’s consumers, which means becoming a hybrid of traditional sales expert who communicates via phone, email and voicemail, mixed with an individual who has a strong social presence, social clout and thought leadership.
At WSI we want to help teach salespeople how they can add value to the social buying cycle and transform the way they sell, so they can help provide true insight throughout the buyer’s journey and ultimately win your company more business.

Let's unravel the essentials of social selling. Explore the answers below to elevate your online business journey.
What is social selling?
Social selling involves leveraging social media platforms to connect with potential customers, gain insights into their needs and preferences, and offer valuable insights and solutions. Unlike traditional sales tactics, social selling prioritizes active listening and engagement and avoids aggressive product promotion. As a result, social selling cultivates improved sales opportunities and fosters stronger customer relationships.
How does social selling help build deeper client relationships?
Social selling nurtures deeper client relationships by encouraging personalized engagement with customers. By leveraging social media platforms, sales professionals can gain valuable insights into their customers' needs, interests, and challenges. Social sellers establish themselves as trustworthy authorities by actively participating in industry-related conversations, sharing relevant content, and showcasing expertise on their social channels. This approach builds trust and credibility, facilitating stronger connections with the audience and leading to more successful sales interactions.
How can I increase my sales with social selling?
To boost your sales through social selling, you must prioritize building meaningful relationships with your audience. Make sure to offer valuable content and actively engage with them to nurture connections and guide prospects along the buying journey. By consistently delivering value and fostering genuine connections, you build trust and loyalty, which ultimately translates into increased sales and fostering business growth.
