About the Book

Social media, when deployed strategically and effectively in B2B channels, offers a uniquely personal long-term networking opportunity for sales teams and business professionals.

For many, this has supercharged their sales performance, with empowered teams, faster results, and higher revenues. For others, the challenges of navigating social channels for business can be daunting.

Concerns over social media confidence, personal and professional conflicts of interest, and a loss of management control can lead to a lack of action or ineffective modes of engagement.

B2B Social Selling Strategy provides a clear framework for identifying the right social channels, connecting with potential and existing customers, and measuring success against objectives and KPIs.

Featuring original research, case studies, and interviews with industry professionals, the book also shows how to generate content to attract attention and gain trust, work with B2B influencers, and create a social selling culture.

Exploring how to build your personal brand in synergy with your business and integrate social selling with other sales and marketing channels, it is supported by online interactive tools and templates to be used to create and execute your own social selling strategy.

Written by a recognized social media expert, B2B Social Selling Strategy is an indispensable guide for B2B sales, marketing, and social media professionals.
