“Over the past few years, Though Transformation has utilized various social media tools, including LinkedIn, as a platform to share information and help companies and sales professionals reach their full potential,” said Bishop. “While I don’t believe that social media will help you close a deal today, I do believe it is an integral part of the sales cycle. For that reason I felt it was important to create an easy-to-read guide explaining how sales professionals can effectively use LinkedIn.”
With more than 500 LinkedIn connections, Bishop’s own use of the social media tool demonstrates she knows how to effectively promote her personal brand and how this platform in particular can serve as a powerful prospecting tool. In addition to providing readers with advice on who they should link to and who they should avoid, “The Sales Pro’s Guide to Using LinkedIn” also includes information on the number one reason why you should be found on LinkedIn and the five ways to build business on the social media site.
