Did you know that 76% of executives say they check social media at least once per day? Did you know that of that number 92% say that LinkedIn is the site they go to?
Truthfully, I didn’t until Josh Turner told me on this podcast.
Josh is the founder of Linked Selling, a multiple 7 figure B2B firm specialising in fully outsourced lead generation campaigns and these stats are based on independent research done.
Josh is also the founder of Linked University, an online training program for LinkedIn marketing, which I have just recently joined – and I can tell you it is a fantastic resource!
So, if your business involves selling B2B, then LinkedIn is a must to find more qualified prospects for your business.
In this interview, which is a real gem when it comes to getting tips, Josh shares with us, amongst other things:
- What you must do to set yourself up properly to optimise your own profile so that you can be found by your potential clients
- How you can go about in a strategic manner to find your prospects, without sounding sales and spammy
- Josh shares his suggestions for a daily routine
- What not to do to avoid being seen as a bore
- How you can keep track of it all without it becoming overwhelming
Josh also shares information about his new book, Connect, which shows us how “to generate leads, build relationships and dramatically increase your sales.”
And there is a great offer for the launch of this new book, which I heartily recommend you go for! All you have to do is go to www.theconnectbook.com, order the Kindle version of just $4.99, email the receipt to Josh and he will send you the printed copy of the book free – and also enrol you in a free LinkedIn marketing course for free! This course is normally sold for $197.
This is a no brainer! Just go there now to get this amazing offer.
In keeping with my tradition of asking about books and habits, Josh shared with us a book he highly recommends – Ask by Ryan Levesque, which shows you how to find out from your customers how to position your marketing to grow your business.
Josh also shares with us that his daily habits include running and meditating, which he finds so beneficial. Also, interestingly EVERY day the staff in the office play Mario Kart for 30 minutes.
My thanks to Josh for a great interview – and great tips!
