#SocialSelling at The Sky Hangar with The Andrew Westlund Group

Social Selling at The Hangar

Thank-you to the Andrew Westlund Group for inviting me out to The Hangar today to address your group of companies for your monthly meeting. Social Media and sales were once thought of as separate disciplines yet today they are inseparable tools for business.

The Future of Selling #SalesTribe #TwitterChat Top Tweets

What happens when 30+ sales thought leaders and sales authors get together to talk about the future of selling on Twitter? 1100+ Tweets, 129 engaged participants and a ton of sales wisdom and insights to share. With 1100 tweets it got a little challenging to follow the conversation but I managed to pull some of the great answers from the tribe. By no means is this totally inclusive, you’re going to have to search #salestribe on Twitter to see the whole conversation, but here are the highlights:

Also here’s some quick high-level stats on the size and reach of the chat. Stay tuned for our next one in just a few weeks time!

Become a Certified Sales Professional Langara College Online Course

I wanted to personally introduce you to a program that can immediately help you boost your company revenues and personal career. It’s said that nothing happens until someone sells something. We teach a lot of companies how to use social media to build brand, community and drive leads to that business… but someone still needs to know how to sell to turn that into revenues.

Working with Langara College, international speaker Bill Gibson of Knowledge Brokers (South Africa) and our team here at Socialized we have put together the ultimate sales training program for new sales professionals and professionals that want to add a revenue generating toolkit to their repertoire. The methodologies in this program have been successfully used and implemented by major sales organizations including BMW, ABSA Bank, Gestetner, Vodacom, Siemens and Ford to name a few.

Here’s a quick video we shot where Shane Gibson (me) facilitator of the program  walks you through what you will learn.

7 Steps to Building a Social Business

I have been a little too busy over the past 3 months. 20 seminars and training sessions, a half-dozen new clients for our social media agency and of course family time! I have a number of new podcasts in the que for you over the next 60 days but I thought I would re-ignite my blogging efforts by sharing a new video I just posted called “7 Steps to building a Social Business.” Also you can also check out our Socialized! Agency Blog for new and breaking news on the social media space. Enjoy!

Also Consider Gannon University Online MBA Programs as another way to build success in the business world. Before you get social a business foundation really helps.

5 Social Media Lessons From Wizard World Comic Con

Social media for comic con with socialized! social media agency

At Socialized! our Social Media Agency we have had some incredible opportunities over the past year to work with brands such as the Ford Dealers Association of BC and Alberta, the Certified Management Accounts, CGA BC, CGA Canada and the Make-a-Wish Foundation. However…even producing the week long event “Social Media Week Vancouver” did not prepare us for the passionate, loyal and often opinionated fans at Wizard World Comic Cons. This is a relatively new adventure for us but this podcast reviews 5 social media lessons I have learned (or re-learned) so far:

5 Lessons (Listen to the podcast for a full explanation):

  1. Tapping into a Tribe is much better than building one
  2. When people know you’re listening they talk, share, tweet, like and follow
  3. Amplify the moment
  4. Run contests to find influencers
  5. Partner to expand influence

Here are some of the links and resources mentioned in the podcast:
