One of the statements that stood out for me in this article was:

What do you do on LinkedIn to establish yourself as the industry thought leader, expert, go-to resource?


In your local community, be it Phoenix, Boulder, or Lexington, do you actively generate the type of content (sharing information, connecting people, answering questions, being helpful) that puts you at the forefront of your prospects' thoughts when they go searching for information?

Viveka Von Rosen, a well known expert on leveraging LinkedIn, described in a recent blog post some ideas for communicating on LinkedIn. Are you using any these tactics with your network. Do you set aside a few minutes each day to do "network communication or engagement?".


I recommend having a plan or calendar of what you're going to do each day of the week for 15-20 minutes a day to communicate with your network on LinkedIn. Creating this calendar will help focus on what is the most important thing you could be doing and allows to develop a "strategy" for using LinkedIn.


Do you have a written plan or calendar of how you spend your time on LinkedIn - or do you use LinkedIn similar to reading your Facebook feed or tweets?

Are You As a Chair Asking for Testimonials From Your Members?

Getting referrals is not only simple, it is inexpensive and the lead closing rate is at least six times better. Yet very few business owners or sales people actually ask for referrals or testimonials.

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, May 28, 2013 6:29 PM

Nick Baldock talks about how to ask for testimonials in his blog article. - good reminder that you should "always be asking" for testimonials.


One of the key elements of building an effective Chair profile that we work on in my Chair LinkedIn Coaching Program is the importance of testimonials from existing members.


Is there any reason why your member (if they are on LinkedIn) would write a glowing testimonal of the value they've gotten from their vistage membership under your Chair leadership?


People finding you on Google and LinkedIn want "proof" that others have received value from you - particularly when many new members can pick and choose who they would like to be their chair.


Have you made this a goal: Get all current members on LinkedIn to write a lengthy, deep, and specific testimonial for you as a Chair?

Do you have a nurturing program in place that you leverage through LinkedIn?


Are you leaving a high volume of sales opportunites on the table because you're unwilling to engage, nurture, and move those currently unresponsive prospects down your sales funnel? If you could achieve a 5-10% conversion rate, would it be worth 15 minutes a day?

LinkedIn Leverage - Doesn't Matter What Your Business Does


Via Barry Deutsch

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, June 7, 2013 1:44 AM

Here's an article about LinkedIn aimed at fleet owners and folks in the niche of selling freight services. Could LinkedIn be relevant for sales professionals in this line of business - you bet.


The author states:


"Say something: Every sales rep should develop a personal, content-driven lead-generation program. By “content” I mean good ideas. Create and participate in industry chat rooms. Write a blog. Source and distribute timely magazine articles. Build credibility in the transportation community by sharing your insights with customers, suppliers, and, yes, even your competitors."



Linkedin provides a great platform for leveraging ideas, thought leadership, engagement, and discussion - all in one place. If folks in the freight business can be successful with it - how those in the swimming pool business, law firms, fire protection, OEM aerospace sub-components. Every B2B company can make great use of leveraging LinkedIn.


Sadly, very few are getting on this bandwagon even though the barriers are low and the costs are almost non-existent. Why such a resistance to putting your toe in the water? In face of overwhelming evidence, case studies, stories, and successes - you're still on the sideline waiting.


Waiting for what? Waiting for your competitors to jump ahead of you and leave you in the dust? Waiting for the perfect moment to start?


I'm confused over the lack of LinkedIn training, use, and leverage among sales teams. Somebody help me out!

The prevailing attitude among most sales professionals is that LinkedIn is a job hunting tool. As the author of this article indicates, that is one of the core capabilities of LinkedIn.


However, a bigger and potentially greater value of LinkedIn is for lead generation and lead nurturing. There is no better tool available to "target" your prospects, engage in swarming your connections to get an introduction, finding people/companies interested in your services, and engaging through content marketing and education with that network.


Have you moved beyond thinking of LinkedIn as nothing more than a job search tool?

The author of this blog article does a great job suggesting a few key things you should resolve to focus on this coming year in leveraging the power of LinkedIn for recruiting, networking, sales, marketing, and lead generation.


I particularly like the suggestion to become active in specific groups and become a "magnet" for your thought-leadership, answers, and questions. Become ACTIVE. Social Media is not a passive undertaking.


As I've said before, setting up accounts and collecting names is a useless activity by itselt. The whole idea is to engage with others, help others, be useful to your network, and to stay top-of-mind with your prospects.

Remember this is not a bureaucratic and compliant presentation of your resume. It's a marketing platform. Why do you think LinkedIn calls it a "headline" instead of a job title?


Who has the most compelling, fascinating, and captivating headline in your peer group? Is there a lesson to be learned? Have you looked at the headlines of your peers that are regurgitations of their job titles?

Via Barry Deutsch

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, May 29, 2013 3:24 PM

Study after study, example after example is proving how firms in a wide range of industries are able to leverage LinkedIn to be more effective in selling - whether you're an individual consultant, restaurant, food manufacturer or service firm (such as an accounting firm or law firm), LinkedIn can be a powerful tool.


What's holding you back?


In a recent study, it was discovered that:


"The study also found that two-thirds of the responding firms have no social media strategy for their sales organizations and that 80% believe their sales force would be more productive with a greater social media presence."



The blog article also cited another recent research effort which found:


"Aberdeen Research Group released a study on social selling in which they revealed that sales reps who have leveraged social selling in their sales process are 79% more likely to attain their quota than those who don’t use social selling in their sales process (15%). The study also cites that the industry average of reps who hit their goal is only 43%."


Even if you don't buy into the research integrity, the numbers generated, just intuitively the idea of ineffective, inefficient sales teams has got to raise the hair on the back of your neck as a sales manager or CEO.


The question is not whether you should use LinkedIn as a tool, but rather, when are you going to bring all your sales team members to a level of competency?
