Give Your Sales Team Training in LinkedIn Best Practices

Would you like to give your sales team training in LinkedIn best practices so all of them can get better results from LinkedIn?

Regardless of where each executive is in their experience and skill at using LinkedIn, we will help them get to the next level.

In this series of webinars, we focus on mastering the most important aspects of using LinkedIn. The training is customized for each group, using their LinkedIn profiles and examples specific to the type of prospects they are targeting. With personalized content it becomes much easier to be successful quickly.

Each webinar builds on what was learned in previous webinars. So instead of a training program that is done once and forgotten, they get the opportunity to explore LinkedIn in-depth and bring back questions as they try new techniques. This also helps hold them accountable for using what they have learned.

We track progress using LinkedIn’s Social Selling Index, so you have proof that your team’s activity on LinkedIn is continuously improving throughout the training – and afterwards!

The webinars take 60 minutes. We begin by briefly going over the highlights of the last session, sharing their wins, and answering questions. The next 30 minutes are devoted to sharing new information. Then we spend 15 minutes going over issues specific to implementing this new material, answering questions, and setting goals for the next session.
