The Art of Being Insightful without Being Creepy

The Art of Being Insightful without Being Creepy | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
To gain the attention of empowered buyers, sales pros are doing more research than ever before. The goal is to present insights that get potential buyers to take notice, but sometimes these efforts get attention for all the wrong reasons. Social media has its own special etiquette, and you will be far more successful if you follow the unwritten rules.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): You wouldn’t ask someone you just met to help you move, no matter how good your first conversation is going. A big ask like that requires time spent building trust and rapport. Yet some sales reps can be fooled by the casual nature of social media into asking for a next step the relationship can’t yet support.


As the person making the initial contact, it’s your responsibility to add value first. It’s best to start with liking the prospects’ shares, then move on to leaving insightful comments on their posts. After that, you can ask them to connect on LinkedIn and send a personalized introductory message with a small ask (like reading an article or taking a 15-minute phone call). These incremental steps will help you build to a bigger request, without seeming like you are imposing.

donhornsby's insight:
(From the article): CHOOSE YOUR CHAMPIONS WISELY Identify the two to three people with whom you already have an existing authentic relationship and whose skills, networks, or access support your own goals. Ideally these should be people who you would naturally advocate for and vice versa. You might work in the same field in different positions or hold a similar role in different industries. The point is that you'll want enough overlap to be valuable to one another but not so much that your networks are virtually identical already.
