Greg Hyer talks with Kevin Thomas Tully of Sales for Life about why content is so important for salespeople. Kevin discusses the difference between creating content and curating content. He also explains why Twitter is so critical finding curated content to share and engage with prospects. You also get an understanding of how to use Twitter Lists, both public and private lists, to track existing clients and prospects.
Kevin Thomas discusses the first two steps the 12 Step Social Selling Routine Infographic. The first step is “Find Content to Share.” The second step is “Share Content with your Social Network.” Kevin Thomas recommends using Twitter lists, Klout and Feedly to find content that can be shared with your prospects. He explains that finding content and sharing can be done before you get out of bed in the morning to brush your teeth.
Following a Groucho Marx reference, Kevin Thomas stresses the importance of building relationships and reinforces Greg’s point about professional networking skills.
