Social Selling is the art of selling via social media. It's based on cultivating relationships and building authentic connections so that the selling process isn't awkward. As a result, your prospective client isn't defensive, anticipating having to say "no" to you. Why? Because you already laid the groundwork by building relationships via social media, and establishing a deep sense of trust where you're seen as the expert. Soulful social selling is about framing the sales conversation as a two way process to dig deeper into their specific challenges in a totally relaxed environment where the prospective client feels it's OK to say no.
You can even sell via livestreams and get "hell yeses!"
By using social media to produce compelling and valuable content, you're laying the groundwork during the early stages of the marketing and sales cycle for the client to internally say "yes" to your products or services. You'll learn how to use social media to develop relationships across 4 key phases: captivate your ideal clients' attention, cultivate online conversations, connect with your ideal clients and deepen the relationships & convert to paying clients without resorting to closing techniques that feel contrived, manipulative and product focused versus client focused.
Social selling is soulful because you're relying on your intuition to guide the conversation versus using a rigid structure. The conversations are still structured, but you have the flexibility to move in a different direction based on what your ideal client shares with you.
