  • It shouldn’t be news to you that customers have disconnected from the traditional sales and marketing communications. The revolution against interruption based marketing is almost complete and in order to survive businesses need to adapt to the new customer 2.0.
  • Many sales teams are still using old techniques to reach prospects. Voice mail after voicemail and unanswered emails don’t get get the attention of customer 2.0. Phones were the primary tool before email and now successful sales people need to adapt new tools into their sales process in order to capture new leads, build stronger relationships and find new opportunities.
  • This may seem like marketing data but its really a call to action for sales teams. People are using social media as a primary tool for getting information on products and services. If from a search in Twitter or a deeper conversation in a LinkedIn group or forum, people are not asking companies for information, they are asking their peers, other customers and trusted advisors.
  • It’s time to realize that your prospects and customers are connecting and talking to each other more than you know. Learn to be a part of these conversations .
  • Paying attention even on a small scale will bring your attention to conversations you can be a part of. Find new opportunities Learn more about your prospects Build relationships with influencers Generate interest in your product/service Create better alignment between sales & marketing
  • The first online profile you should focus on is LinkedIn. Stop thinking of it as a profile only updated when you are looking for a job. Your LI profile is being looked at by 60% or more of the people you come in contact with. Make sure your profile is updated, professional and an excellent example of YOU . I could talk for an hour on ways to enhance your LinkedIn profile but the most important points you should focus on are headline – Photo - websites - work history and summary .
  • As I already touched on, I think Twitter is an underutilized tool for sales people. There are so many conversations happening in real time that you can be a part of. At a minimum you should have a Twitter profile just so you can follow the companies you interact with. You will find people of interest and you should engage in conversations. A lot of these updates will lead you to their company blog or even their personal blogs and that gives you an even better platform to create discussions.
