Successful B2B social selling is personal. So why do so many sales pros forget this? We talk with Scott Ingram, Host of the Sales Success Stories Podcast talks with Martin Brossman and Greg Hyer about how to create a better first impression and get personal with B2B prospects.

We apologize for some of the digital fading in and out in the audio and video recording of this episode.

Here’s Scott’s LinkedIn update that went viral about the canned message that is sent when someone sends you an invite to connect.

In this episode we discussed a number of likes and dislikes about LinkedIn. We discussed why engaging on social must be personal to be successful. This is why it is so important to send personalized invites on LinkedIn.

Scott shares why he has deactivated his Facebook account and why Greg feels it’s important for millennials to understand the boundaries between personal and professional lives when it comes to selling on Facebook.

As of 5/27/2017, according to LinkedIn Help, you are not able to see who your LinkedIn Followers are.
