Posted by in Entrepreneurs, social media

For many people the “Social Selling” process is a little confusing.

There are 2 ways you can go about implementing social selling into your business.

   1,  Direct sales from a social media platform [Very hard to do, but possible if you build up a trusted brand]

   2,  Getting people FROM social media platforms and onto your email list/funnel [Easier to do, but you still need to build trust first]

    Is LinkedIn big for social marketers? Or is it the other way around. Would be interesting seeing how many of those 84.1% are actually pulling an ROI from their time on LinkedIn.

    Not sure Matt.. but Im sure they are getting results from doing more then just the time line. Connecting. building relationship, pulling leads then making sales is probably what they meant.
