What: Differing from Nimble’s previous webinars, Jon and Viveka bring together Jon’s expertise on social selling with Viveka’s incredible wealth of information on Linkedin networking. Not only do they explore what makes their respective networks large and prosperous, they allow their communities to reach out via Twitter while they are speaking.
When: The webinar already happened, but that doesn’t mean the party’s over. You can watch the video below or hit up Viveka and Jon at their respective Twitter handles. Also, it cannot be said enough that #LinkedInChat is a conversation you need to be participating in whenever you can (if not every week).
Where: Gosh, where doesn’t it go? The webinar explores all the apps you use on the daily: Twitter, Linkedin, Nimble, Nimble’s Smart Contacts App, Gmail and more. This is a great opportunity to see social media integration in action.
Why: Viveka and Jon are evangelists of the power of social media, and they want your business to thrive.
As Jon explains, people in sales need to redefine how they view and reach out to their prospects. Instead of trying to make a sale and move forward, people should use their business to help others grow.
Social media isn’t a platform to talk about yourself or your product; it’s a resource to inspire and educate others while building mutually beneficial, pay-it-forward relationships. By sharing content, giving insights to who you are and creating personal connections with others, you can establish yourself as a trust advisor in your field. In return, people not only look to you for information, but they also want to do business with you.
Developing your network and standing out are essential values that drive why and how Nimble was created. Nimble is the CRM tool that will further your reach while keeping you organized and sane, and #LinkedInChat provides all the invaluable information you need to network intelligently.
