The digital transformation over the last decade has completely changed the way people buy.
Businesses, marketers and sellers need to adapt to the new reality to stay relevant and competitive in attracting the modern buyer. LinkedIn provides the most important tools for B2B businesses to generate more sales through social selling.
To attract today’s buyer requires for the sales dialogue to shift from “What can I sell you?” to “How can I help you?”
Today, your personal brand is more important than ever as people research an individual or company before they do business with them.
Seven seconds is all you have to wow a potential client. Your social selling success is dependent on how your LinkedIn profile represents your personal brand.
With all these challenges, you still have tremendous opportunity. You now have tools to connect directly with your ideal prospects with the click of a button.
And while social media in general and its use in business in particular have been discussed for years, few have talked about the power of LinkedIn.
I believe many businesses ignore LinkedIn for two primary reasons:
- it isn’t sexy
- it isn’t fun or exciting
While LinkedIn may not be exciting, getting new clients and having a successful business certainly is!
To capitalize on LinkedIn’s social selling capacity, follow the five steps I detail in The LINK Method™ to turn LinkedIn into a highly predictable lead generator.
In the infographic below, I share with you the five-step process, the essential elements of your profile to attract your ideal clients, the trigger events that allow you to build relationships with your prospects on LinkedIn, the ways to leverage existing relationships, and much more.

I believe when you transition from collecting connections to building relationships, you increase trust and credibility and attract more clients. This is vital because effective social selling is all about building relationships and trust.
The beauty of LinkedIn is that it was designed to help you find, connect and then build relationships and trust with the exact group of people that comprise your target audience.
