Social Selling Strategies

~ 100 buzzes
Social Selling has become a bit of a buzz word (pardon the pun). It's also referred to as digital selling or digital sales and marketing.

However what social selling really is, is building relationships with the right people. Those people could be leads, prospects, clients, referral or strategic alliance partners.

The focus of this group will be to share social selling best practices across all platforms (beBee, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter etc) and among most effective practices such as lead generation, outreach, content marketing, visual marketing, videos, live steaming, prospecting and more.

Please join us and ask questions, share successes, case studies, relevant content and get to know the amazing community here at beBee.

    #2 Thanks @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher for the comment. He's making some great insights into true value of resources, not commoditizing it and lowering the value, like you would find with the "traditional" offshoring/upwork, etc.

    "Curation is not just about the project, but also about the relationship that companies need to develop for a long-term business. It’s not about β€œoffshoring” or the freelance job market. It’s no longer just randomness through a digital classified ad. It’s definitely more than that, and that is what George is doing." The human factor makes such a difference.

    In line with the content of our latest discussion, isn't it? Cannot agree more with all your standpoints. Users are shifting from friends purpose to a business acquaintance status in fact. Friendship lifecycle just ended gradually to get back where it belongs: IRL (in Real Life) while URL has to finally achieve its destiny: Business. And Digital strategists today are most needed to craft people's transition 2 to 6 months and same for corporate transformation 1 to 3 years. Good old Darwin is back on stage. Survival of the fittest...adapt to extinct. Punto final!
    @Doyle Buehler we could co-authors something from course/consulting/Saas together regarding those needs?

    It's a catch 22. If Facebook becomes even more of a business platform, they will lose many who use it soley for social purposes. I think a few options should be available and if the person that is using Facebook just for social purposes doesn't want their timeline flooded with business adds etc... there should be a feature for that. Yes, revenue will continue to help growth but they must consider their diverse audience. My timeline is already flooded with adds RE: products, services and more that can be annoying at times.

    I agree entirely, we are always in a state of flux! People unfortunately think social media is free, nothing is ever free so paying is ok providing their is a tangible process to work out the ROI.

    Have a great Monday.

    "Depending on who you talk to, it could either be an objective to achieve, a reputation to aspire for, or a career-defining condition. Exactly how does one get there, though?".

    I've been thinking about this for weeks. When interacting in beBee, several people, I have commented, in what I highlight and I did so spontaneously, I had never before been valued, therefore, I have not know how to use it in my favor. I'm starting now. I will read your article with more insight.
    Thanks Melani.
