How To Become A Social Selling Superstar

If you’re engaging with your target audience on any level via social media, whether for business development or promoting your brand, that is social selling. If you thought you could use social media to interrupt people’s lives with cold and hard sells, think again. Social selling is all about providing opportunities for your ideal buyer to know, like, and trust you as an individual and get to know you over time. Social selling is not about selling at all. It’s about warming up your prospects, building relationships and establishing trust.

For local businesses, showing up on page one is a must – showing up in the Google 3-pack (or whatever it is called this week.) can be the difference between thriving and merely surviving.

All Google products evolve as they find ways to make search better and, let’s face it, make more money from that fact.

There are a handful of factors that Google uses to decide what sites to show when a person searches for a local business.

While there are several factors involved in that decision, today I want to talk about the linchpin of the local listing game – your Google My Business Page.

How To Get Leads With Only $100 via Facebook Ads

Facebook ads are an incredible way to generate exciting new leads for your business. There are nearly 2.5 billion monthly active Facebook users worldwide, meaning that you have the opportunity to reach a huge audience if you play your advertising cards right.

The other benefit to the platform is the relatively low cost of advertising. Across industries, the average cost per click for Facebook ads is $1.72. It’s entirely possible for a small business to get great results spending only $100 per month on Facebook ads.

But the secret to getting the most out of a small investment in Facebook advertising is creating really effective campaigns. And to generate leads using Facebook ads, you need to take a step back and revisit everything you think you know about advertising.

Grab It By The Tale! – How to Grow Your Business Through Storytelling

Once upon a time, a business had a story. Prospects and customers connected to it; they found it personal, telling, truthful and relevant. That’s what made it a good one. Just like every person has his own story, so does every business. You can use storytelling to get your target customers’ attention and resonate with them on an emotional level. It works in every niche because it relies on human psychology. Our brain is hardwired to respond to a story.

5 Platforms for Continuous Online Learning

With the capricious nature of our digital word, an intriguing question is constantly being asked- Are learning communities going to replace physical college degrees or be the new school? Although this might not be a preference for all professionals, there’s a lot of question in whether the traditional education model can keep up with the pace of change within the current corporate environment. So that is where online learning platforms can play a really major role.

How LinkedIn Can Help Grow Your Network

LinkedIn is a powerful tool for small businesses looking to grow their network, boasting 660 million members worldwide

Because it’s a business-focused social network, having a presence on the platform is a necessity for those running B2Bs. But B2C businesses can thrive on LinkedIn as well. Since the network is all about business, many users are going there to seriously look for solutions to a problem they have (unlike Facebook or Instagram, where they might just be going to look for cute pet photos).

If you understand how to use the platform effectively, it can help you grow your network and get ahead of the competition. Here’s how you can do it.

5 Benefits of Using a Social CRM System

One of the trickiest things about social media is that there are multiple platforms you need to keep up with. Just about every business should have a presence on “the big four” (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn). And for certain businesses, additional platforms like SnapChat or Pinterest might make sense.

When you’re juggling customer information that’s coming in through your website, your email, your customer service numbers, and all of your social channels, if you don’t have a system to keep it all straight, you’ll want to pull your hair out!

That’s where a customer relationship management tool (AKA, CRM) with a social component comes in. A social-friendly CRM allows you to track all brand interactions in one place. This provides tremendous value to your business.

Let us walk you through the five biggest, but least talked-about, benefits to using a CRM system with a social component.
