Managing a Social Selling Team – Infographic


Social selling has revolutionized the sales world, which has created the necessity of managing a social selling team. In recent years, using social media and other similar platforms to sell has taken off, and it has been difficult to keep up with the trends, especially for sales managers who are already juggling a lot of other responsibilities. Most social selling information is dedicated to helping the salesperson. While this information is necessary and very needed, it can be neglecting of the sales managers.

That’s why John Golden of SalesPOP! and Matt McDarby of USR teamed up to bring you 9 powerful tips and practical advice to ensure that social selling is adopted and managed in the right ways.
