On Social Selling: How to Find Buying Signals on Social Media

Good point! Sales people do have to have a big heart now because their role converges with marketing and customer service to provide the buyers with the experience they are looking for. The Thank You Economy is a great book that seems very applicable to our conversation.

On Sellarketers: The Rise of a New and Modern Social Salesperson

Danealle thanks for such a well thought out comment. I think you are bang on. It's not the name that's important, it's the shift in skill, tool and mindset needed in the modern salesperson. It's a convergence we've never seen before. 

Whether we call it sellarketing or not, its a skill and relationship that needs to be adopted to be a modern social sales person. Thank you tons, I loved your response.

On How To: Use Twitter to Create and Curate Trending Content

Very true Sonia! I reference a survey of social media users by the joint Nielsen-McKinsey venture NM Incite, 33% of respondents say they'd recommend a brand that offered a quick but ineffective response, nearly double the number (17%) who'd recommend a brand providing a slow but effective solution. Even "no company response," at 19%, scored higher than slow/effective. People want information fast even if its less effective or inaccurate. Cheers.

On Why Instagram Won’t Last

Insightful Christianna. I enjoyed this read a lot. It will be interesting to see how they handle this flub. That policy will be the end of things and takes privacy invasion to the next level.

On How to Sell When the World Is Ending Tomorrow

I've seen this in action Matt and totally agree with you. That end of Q urgency to needs to be there consistently, if not, all the time. It's amazing how sales stars can create that authentic urgency for the buyer to get it done! Nice article!

On How LinkedIn Can Help Your Sales Team in 2013

Excellent point Hadeel. One of the driving factors of social selling is your ability to add value and to set yourself apart from the masses of other people. You only get a first impression once, and I feel you shouldn't let that slip away by not taking the time to craft a personal introduction. Gone are the days of a one-size-fits-all approach and sending too many invitations with the generic intro will result in people hitting the "I Don't Know You" button which will result in restrictions from LinkedIn. My advice is to be as unique as possible and start setting yourself apart from the get-go.
