Social selling is your new secret weapon for reaching your sales targets.
If you currently hold a quota-carrying sales position or had one in the past, then you’ve likely worried about reaching your targets at one point in time or another. This stress simply comes with the territory. Everyone in sales has months or quarters where, regardless of their effort, the monetary value of their closed deals did not reach their level of expectations.
Not reaching your goal could happen for a number of external reasons, such as summer vacations, long sales cycles, economic conditions and so on. It could also be a result of internal factors like poor forecasting, improper qualifying or a small sales pipeline of prospects.
Fortunately for all of you sales professionals out there, the technology age has brought about an entirely new set of tools that can alleviate the stress of reaching quota by helping you exceed your targets and transforming you into a social seller.
