Social Selling: social networking for sales and marketing

Social Selling: social networking for sales and marketing

Social Selling is the process of selling a company through social networks. It is a remarkable strategy for companies. It offers the opportunity to increase sales and promote the brand.

In this type of strategy there are no immediate results. It is necessary to dedicate time, perseverance and effort to connect with the target audience. It is a long-term strategy that requires a great deal of perseverance to achieve our sales goals.

Through social media we give visibility to our brand and reach a wider audience. To do this, we must share quality content and thus contribute to strengthening and gaining credibility for our brand among consumers.

How to use Social Selling to generate a sale

If your company does not have a Social Selling strategy in place, you are probably losing sales. That is why it is necessary to start as soon as possible.

First of all, we must choose the social network that best suits our company. Not all networks are suitable for a B2B industrial company. Currently, the one that is working best for this type of company is Linkedin.

Once we have chosen the ideal social networks, we have to follow a series of steps:

  1. Get potential customers. This can be done in several ways:
    • Competitions. To prevent a flood of messages, the prize must be very well defined so that the customers are really interesting for the company.
    • Gated content. If the content is relevant to the reader, he/she will be willing to give us information in order to access the content. An example of such content could be webinars.
  2. Make blog posts and share it on the networks. Sharing relevant content is essential to give consumers confidence.
  3. Interacting with your followers is always positive because it creates a sense of trust towards your brand.
  4. After-sales service. It is very important for the customer that the company responds quickly when they make a query through any medium, including the networks.
