Everyone is talking about social selling but what is it & why should you care?

The Social Selling MasterMind group recently released this eBook with social selling insights from 33 thought leaders around the world! 

I love and embrace the power of social media to change all aspects of life from how we communicate to how we decide which restaurant to go too and how we collaborate and learn from each other!

Michael De Groot (@StayingaliveUK) asked me a few months back if I would contribute to a social selling eBook that he was working on that would include insights from thought leaders around the world. First off I was honored that Michael would ask me and secondly I was excited, excited more about the idea of collaborating and building a book that can help others without limitations of where we worked or what software we used!

This book is a great resource with actionable data from industry experts around the globe but more than that this is an example of the power of social media!

Being great at social isn’t about the network or the software, its about creating relationships, attracting attention and building trust!

So before you say you don't do social media or selling on social isn't for you, listen to these insights and tips as you will be amazed that once you embrace change and focus on using social instead of doing it the old way, social selling will be easier than it was making your sale is on the golf course!
