Consider this: according to the Social Media and Sales Quota Survey, 79% of salespeople who use social media as a selling tool outperform those who don’t.
For a sales technique still often considered a fad or novelty, those are some staggering results. It's becoming hard to ignore the fact that the modern sales professional needs to be social.
