Jon Ferrara joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to discuss why salespeople should refocus their time and start to sell through social.
The Power Of Customer Relationship Management
The show is kicked off with Jon explaining what life was like before computerised CRM systems and the huge pain it was to keep track of your business dealings.

The show is wrapped up with Jon explaining the importance of having mental space and Will once again brings up the fact that salespeople should at least experiment with meditation.
