Jennifer MacAskill from Cision has boosted her sales pipeline significantly by using LinkedIn.
What happens when you become a social seller? If you’re doing it correctly, you deliver immense value to your buyers. Your agenda is to provide this value to as many people as possible. You can’t help it – it’s just something you do.
A great by-product of providing value are more opportunities in your pipeline and more sales.
Meet Jennifer MacAskill. Some of you may have read our blog about her solid $28,000 deal through her social selling efforts. Being creative pays off when social selling and Jennifer is a fine example of that.
