  • The world of work has changedThe Internet has transformed how information is created and accessed, and how people connect and collaborate.Buyers have changed; they are technology enabled and socially empowered.Professionals need to be more responsive and make faster and better informed decisions to perform in this accelerated business environment.  Enter LinkedIn. There is now a single, global community of professionals from which a magical new data asset emerges. With more than 240 million professional members representing companies in more than 200 countries and territories, LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network on the Internet. These millions of professionals are adding information to their profiles, sharing important insights, and building their networks every day on LinkedIn.

  • -Animate the three columns so can discuss one at a time.-Follow a rhythm in diving into each of the three that we (1)conceptually present the value, and then (2)show how this is provided in Sales NavigatorWhat exactly does building strong pipeline entail?Since this is the top X priority for you to hit your number and you, not marketing, is not driving the majority of pipeline, let’s deconstruct together what exactly are the key activities in building pipeline so we can assess how well you’re doing with each and how LinkedIn may helpVery quickly introduce these three (quickly, because want to leave time to dive into each in a moment)Who is right person?   One of the most inefficient and annoying things in the selling process for both buyers and sellers is when a seller is chasing the totally wrong person.  What do I say?   There’s nothing more annoying than when a sales person has no context about you or your business or contacts you at the wrong time (even if you are the right person and they came in warm).What’s my path in?    Even if you’re the right person, buyers hate being cold called.   It is so much better if a seller came to me through a trusted source because I could immediately  tell the mutual connection I’m not interested. Since relationships matter, the seller couldn’t be too aggressive or would damage his/her relationship with the mutual connection.
