Can You Close A Complex B2B Sale Over Social Media? With Joanne Black





Joanne Black is a joins me on the Salesman Podcast to discuss how the internet and social media are changing the sales process and how face to face meetings are as important as ever.


Is Social Selling Just Hype?

I start the show by asking Joanne if the internet is going to kill face to face, B2B sales meetings. We then start to look deeper into the world of social media and the effects it’s already having on the sales cycle.

“Can you close a complex B2b sale over social media? Some people say they have. I say no.”

  • Is outside sales more effective than inside sales
  • Are video calls going to become more popular in sales
