Harnessing the power of social media has been a cornerstone of successful sales strategies within the past few years. Especially in 2020, when millions of road warriors were grounded overnight and forced to work remotely, knowing how to access and sell to prospects virtually is a necessity for modern sales teams.
I used to knock the role of social media managers.
I was generating hundreds of leads each month by producing long-form content and marketing offers, while every social media manager I encountered was more concerned with being the only one in the company who knew the ins and outs of Facebook and Instagram. They didn't seem interested at all in weaving their expertise into a larger plan to grow the company.
