Social Selling is about opening, not closing. You’ve heard this time and time again from us. Well, it’s time we revisit this philosophy. Greg Hyer, Martin Brossman and Elyse Archer discuss why this mindset is critical for success in social selling.

The traditional approach to sales where the sales person is at the center of the sale is wrong. Sales management has been teaching sales reps to close everything while the rest of the organization is tasked with keeping accounts open. Sales has it backwards. It’s time for a change.

Listen to this episode to understand the foundation for this new sales philosophy and start to take your social selling efforts to the next level.
