LinkedIn for Sales, Marketing, and Competitive Intelligence
Presented by Dave Nelsen, President, Dialog Consulting Group
Most people use Google many times each day. What if there were a comparable tool for finding people? Actually, there is, although most people don't use it in this way. It's LinkedIn, a network of 450 million business professionals. What if you could find CEOs or other prospects by title, exactly in your territory? LinkedIn makes it possible to find and connect with such prospects – not just online but also face-to-face in the real world (where real selling happens). This part of LinkedIn is called Advanced People Search, it’s orders of magnitude more effective than cold calling, and it's free.
In this engaging 60-minute session, entrepreneur and Vistage Speaker of the Year, Dave Nelsen, provides dozens of actionable takeaways that you can apply to marketing, sales, and competitive analysis. LinkedIn, and the new relationships it yields, create an unfair advantage in business. Learn to use it to your advantage before your competitors do. Because in business, it’s survival of the fastest and best connected.
