Presented by Deb Gallagher- a fantastic presenter!

The social media paradigm has changed the customer buying process and experience. Customers research information online for education and to seek solutions. They delay initial contact with providers and decisions require greater consensus to move forward. This has caused a significant impact to how companies and salespeople sell. Social Selling is a reaction to this change in buying behavior and expectations.

· A gap between executive vision, go-to-market strategies and sales execution
· A lack of discipline around:

  1. Effective lead generation
  2. Focus on the right segments, buyers, influencers & with the right messaging
  3. Mobilizing stakeholders around a decision
  4. Forecasting deal closure

· The challenge to utilize all the sales processes, marketing, training, tools and automation in a consistent daily discipline around lead generation and account growth

To address these revenue growth challenges, Deb Gallagher has become a Social Selling evangelist and expert.

Social media has enabled buyers to delay and control contact while bringing collaborative tools and processes that have cultivated a greater consensus dynamic on the buying side. Call it "social buying."

"Social selling" is the inevitable reaction to this change in buying behavior, and sellers must make key behavioral and strategic adjustments in the way they pursue opportunities.

In this new world, how we sell is more important than what we sell. Sellers and marketers must use social tools to acquire a deeper understanding of their customers’ businesses, provide consultative insight, challenge customer assumptions, and control the conversation. They must generate demand with buyers who are knowledgeable and risk-averse.

To increase efficiency and effectiveness in the “social ecosystem” – you need a defined community that you interact with and a system for maximizing that interaction. This is done through a personalized approach to cultivating and growing accounts by developing a network of advocacy and tailoring messages to a wide range of customer stakeholders to build a business case and consensus for decisions.

Deb's Connected Selling solutions combine the power and reach of social media with established sales, prospecting and account development methods in a dynamic engaging training methodology.

They focus on skill mastery, building a personal and professional brand that transcends product and role, and personalized message management—all relevant to every generation and role!
