The agenda of the Webinar was to help organizations understand the importance of digital selling. Throughout this session, Jamie and Ray discussed the relationship between modern, digital and social selling strategies within a sales process. After a quick introduction of their companies, both Jamie and Ray further continued to collaborate on how modernizing the sales process has been neglected and how it can be extremely valuable in achieving incremental gains in sales outcomes. The webinar was based on these four main points: 

  • To what extent selling is changing and how businesses should react to the changing buying behaviors of the buyers.
  • The need for the modern sales organization to align digital selling with the sales process.
  • Why sales organizations should implement and reinforce a successful modern selling program.
  • The importance of managing and coaching to boost behavior change.

Facts and figures were presented to showcase how companies are getting higher sales outcomes by making social and digital selling a habit. Jamie Shanks explained, how social selling (digital selling) training needs to be integrated within the sales process to benefit today’s modern digital sellers communicate with today’s modern buyers.
