While listening to a presentation at a conference recently, the presenter got me thinking differently. When someone can do that, you know you are in the right room.
The presenter was Sean Burke and his talk was called, The World's Youngest Billionaires Guide to Social Selling. The title caught my attention and since I had recently met him through his company's list of 100 Social Sales Influencers it seemed like a good idea to sit in on this one.
What totally HIT me during the presentation was when Sean talked about how WE as sellers have helped create all the tools on the web that now help our BUYERS without us - that isn't new. What IS new is the idea that WE as sellers can do a number of things to anticipate what our buyers want and need. We can respond with the same tools to be better, more responsive sellers and ultimately have more opportunity to gain their awareness and potentially their business.
I enjoyed the presentation SO much and it gave me SO many questions that I asked Sean if he'd let me ask him those questions about getting ahead of the buyer - so we are going live tomorrow with a Google Hangout.
