Social Selling Inspiration & Awareness with your team
Why care about Social Selling?
The behavior of the B2B buyer has changed
B2B buyers have changed their behaviour more than we realize. Today’s buyers have access to information through social media and digital channels and use it to do research and strengthen their decision-making. All our decision-makers are, therefore, increasingly online and reachable. If B2B sales teams do not become more digital as well, they cannot continue to compete in the current market. To leverage this situation, sales teams must be structurally relevant for the target audience on their personal LinkedIn profile to discover, exploit and create qualified business opportunities themselves.
A professional online presence by sales and marketing together will also showcase the expertise of your organization, attract new employees and make current employees proud.

What to expect?
With this first step, we inspire and create awareness about Social Selling. We develop these sessions, especially for sales, marketing, and management teams, to lay the Social Selling foundation for the team and organization.
The emphasis of the session is on creating awareness that customers buy differently, and we need to develop a new customer approach, including a modern digital routine to become a Social Selling Master. Also, we will work directly on what is distinctive content and how do we present ourself on social media as a modern sales team.
How do we organize this day?
We organize the sessions at your office, an external location or online. Based on the number of participants, sufficient social selling experts are present to get the most out of the day. The day consists of short presentations, and practical exercises get started with profiles, content and mapping out ideal customer groups to apply focus. We will work with the team on where the opportunities lie and create a plan to exploit these opportunities in the coming sessions.
To prepare you for these live sessions, we recommend that you read the Whitepaper Social Selling in the Commercial Strategy, and we make a personal Linkedin profile of each participant.
