Almost three-quarters (73 percent) who implemented social sales techniques outperformed their competitors, and 66 percent achieved a greater quota attainment for sales reps by using these methods.
Bottom line: if you’re not incorporating social media into your sales arsenal, you’re missing huge opportunities.
