The LinkedIn Whisperer - Brynne Tillman - 280

Find My Catalyst Podcast

In this episode of The Find My Catalyst Podcast, Mike is joined by Brynne Tillman who has earned the title of the LinkedIn Whisperer. Brynne shares a lot of great tips in this episode. Key Takeaways: In order to truly leverage what is available to us today, we need to slow down our outreach to speed up the outcome. Be strategic and look at what matters to those you want to reach out to. We need to small talk with content, but content that matters to our audience. Leverage the information that LinkedIn provides to start authentic conversations. 2 Types of Sales Professionals: Brand new sales professionals that understand technology Seasoned sales professionals that understand relationships. Rarely do you find the ones that have both. Goal is bring the two together. Meaningful conversations from social = value + rapport  Get people engaged in chat  My style (Brynne) is to make it so easy that my audience is confident that they can implement it. Simplify your story. 5 Elements that get people to lean in: Resonate with story Create curiosity Teach your audience something new Get them to think differently about what they are doing Create a compelling moment. We can’t start a conversation with lurkers, we have to convert the lurker into an engager. Create a compelling moment. Ways to increase engagement: Ask a meaningful question Create a poll Do something that gets your audience say, “I want to engage in this.” The more engagement you get in the first hour, the more LinkedIn says this is relevant. Ask for their thought leadership, not their baggage. Ways to get a better understanding of what people value: Social listening - what is your audience engaging on? Polls Research topics being presented at conferences they attend? What podcasts are they listening to? Have a system in place before you reach out to a prospect.  Have a strategy for content that leads to engagement. Nurture existing connections.

Episode 92: Interview With Brynne Tillman

The Other Side of Sales

Brynne Tillman, the LinkedIn Whisperer and CEO of Social Sales Link, joins Ashleigh and Ryan to discuss social listening, authenticity, and leaving no connections left behind.The Rolodex-When Brynne found LinkedIn over a decade ago, she quickly recognized that it solved her biggest sales struggle, cold calling.-LinkedIn is a dynamic Rolodex, giving you access to not just your network, but the networks of all your connections.Social Listening-Go by the “two under two” rule. Find two things in under two minutes that you can use to connect with a prospect.-Before you reach out you need to understand who their clients are, the issues they face, and what’s happening in their industry.Automation-Ashleigh and Brynne are split on this topic. Brynne advocates for never using automation while Ashleigh advocates for light and strategic use of automation.Content-Good content talks to your buyer before they know they need you. You need to know what they are searching for two steps before you come into the process.Authenticity-The biggest problem in sales is that there is a dollar amount placed on a prospect prior to the first conversation. And, this is noticeable to the prospect.-You need to enter the conversation aware that you have to earn the right and add value. Think about what you are worth to the prospect not what the prospect is worth to you.Connect and Forget-There is no point in building a Rolodex of people who don’t know who you are. Slow it down, connect personally, and start real conversations.-Before you do anything, export your connections into an Excel spreadsheet and analyze it. Who are you connected with who you should be leveraging?Resources-The Little Black Book of Networking by Jeffrey Gitomer-Gap Selling by Keenan-The Challenger Sale by Brent Adamson and Matthew Dixon-The Challenger Customer by Brent Adamson-Endless Referrals by Bob BurgConnect With Brynne-Making Sales Social-Social Sales LinkConnect With Ashleigh-Instagram-LinkedIn-TwitterConnect With Ryan-LinkedInConnect With OSoS-Instagram-LinkedIn-TwitterSend in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/

Sales Game Changers | Tips from Successful Sales Leaders

This is episode 417. Read the complete transcription on the Sales Game Changers Podcast website. BRYNNE'S TIP FOR EMERGING SALES LEADERS: "Whether it's in person or on social, the bottom line is prospects are human beings and we need to connect human to human. I have templated messages that I tailor. I have a process, but at every single step I'm paying attention to how is this landing with this person? Is this appropriate? I tailor everything I do. I don't have copy-and-paste messages exactly. I make sure that every person feels special. When you tailor the message, when you tailor that outreach, it's the eye contact that you have in person. It's they took the time to learn about me, and I matter. They care about me. If you do nothing else on social or in person, authentically care about the person you're engaging with." ARNOLD'S TIP FOR EMERGING SALES LEADERS: "There’s an old saying called moment of truth. Moment of truth means every time you have a meeting, a transaction, or an interaction with anyone, an impression is formed. This impression could be positive or negative, it can help or hinder, it can make or break a relationship. What we need to take a look at and start thinking about, how do I make every touch point or interaction I have with anyone more positive, memorable, and special? What do I need to do on a daily basis to do that? I write my calendar every morning, I say, okay, what am I going to do to make – I look at who I'm going to talk to – more positive, memorable, and special? Again, that would be my takeaway right now at this point."
