4 Steps to Becoming a Modern Sales Professional

4 Steps to Becoming a Modern Sales Professional | Women and Careers | Scoop.it

"The Internet has changed the role of sales forever (...) what’s even more interesting is the source of where the information is coming from. In most cases it’s not the brand you’re researching, but a highly regarded 3rd party expert – or influencer – in the industry."

  4. Measure engagement


The post suggests tools to reach these objectives (scoop.it inside - thank you :)).
