4. How does LinkedIn make the sale?
I was at a client site recently listening in on a sales call with a prospect who my client had
been chatting with for months. It was a lovely call. Laughter, in-jokes, obvious rapport. They
were introduced on LinkedIn; they tweeted each other daily. Yet nothing was going anywhere.
I wrote a note in front of him, which he repeated:
We’ve been chatting for a while now. And the more I get to know you, the more I see the
possibility of our working together somehow. What would you need to know about my solution
to know if it would fit, and if your colleagues would be willing to consider adding something
new to what they are already doing so well?
The conversation shifted. The man was happy to answer: We’re starting to go through the
process of an M&A, and won’t be able to take on anything new for about a year. Can we revisit
this in 6 months? At that time there will be new people on board (I might even be gone!), and I
don’t know what the hierarchy will be, but we can discuss it. Client kept talking.
In 6 months, WE GOT THE SALE!
There could be no buy in, no decision team, and most likely no purchase.
Does that make you want to continue being ‘friends’ or end the
‘friendship’? Do you want to ask for a referral? How much time do you
want to spend being ‘friendly’ vs closing a sale? And how will you know
when/if it’s time to pull the plug, or ask the hard questions?

on photographs has required companies to take a closer look at the way
images reflect their brand. The way in which Instagram and Pinterest

visual cues, demands that the imagery put forth on behalf of your brand

8. LinkedIn is the most
networking site to help
you grow your business.
If you want to hang with the big
players—a place where connections are
made, leads are generated, and deals
go down—then you need to spend more
of your time on LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is a valuable resource for small businesses because you can
grow relationships and drive new business. However, you need
someone working on it and communicating and connecting people
every day. We can gain you new 3,000 new connections in 3 months.
