Everything we do generates data. Data that can be interpreted, analyzed, visualized, scrutinized, and lauded over. We can then apply what we learn through that data to distill an activity down to a precise science with specific and measurable statistics.
As sales and marketing departments become better integrated, they look to these statistics to run their business more efficiently. But what stats matter most? Organizations can quantify just about anything, and a quick search of sales or marketing stats renders hundreds of results. Layer in social selling and social media statistics into your search and the results only increase. So what social selling statistics matter and why should sales leaders care? Here’s the top three stats you need to know.
Social Selling Statistic #1:
Yes, these are technically two statistics, but they prove this point: social selling works. Reps and teams that leverage their social channels throughout the sales process close more and win more than those that do not. Want to go to club? Want that promotion? Want to be the number one rep, district, or region? Start social selling. People buy from people they know, like and trust. Social channels are the perfect space to start and build relationships with prospects away from sales emails and sales calls. When used effectively, social selling can help warm a lead, earn a sales call, nurture that lead, and help close the deal.
Social Selling Statistic #2:
If your sales team is just cold emailing and cold calling prospects, then they are missing out on one of their most important channels. Leveraging social media can help you learn about your prospects and engage with them around a shared topic of interest, answer a question, or provide a valuable insight. Using social allows you to start a conversation and remove “cold” from your initial emails and calls. Sales reps and teams that leverage social to become a person that buyers know, like and trust are more likely to succeed.
Social Selling Statistic #3:
As a sales rep or sales leader, having access to your target market is one of the first steps toward success. If social media is where your prospects are, then that is where sales reps need to be. On top of that, reps need to be visible, searchable, and accessible. Social allows you to build your personal brand, build your product and services credibility and build the relationships that will help you close more business. The social sphere gives reps unparalleled information and access to their target prospects. Leverage it!
Social selling provides sales teams with countless data points that can all yield valuable insights and statistics into their social selling strategies and tactics. By focusing on the a few key statistics, it’s easy to see why market leaders like Oracle, IBM, ADP and BMC are investing resources into social selling training and strategy—because it works.
Trice Finch, Epic Auto Sales Manager Reviews The Internet Sales 20 Group 8 - IS20G
Meet Jeff Cormier, the "6 Million Dollar Car Salesman". Jeff is a Car Salesman at Liberty Ford in Ohio and just recently lost his 6 year old son, Xander. I found out about his situation on Facebook. I was rocked by his story and donated to his GoFundMe account (The original one) but I couldn't get him out of my head. My heart just broke for this man and his family and I wanted to do something more... So, I reached out to Jeff and started to mention him, guild him, train him in Car Sales. I know for the rest of his life he is going to have to deal with the reality of life without his son. That is hard enough, money should NOT be a concern. I didn't want him to struggle or worry about money. I wanted to teach him how to be a massive success in Car Sales. I wanted to teach him how he can build his own business from scratch and really make being a Car Salesman like he is running his own business!
So, I enlisted some of my friends in the industry that happen to be publicly traded companies, 100 million dollar companies and even billion dollar companies. These vendors were AMAZING! They provided products and services to Jeff that are going to help take his business to the next level!
Jeff is being set up with MORE products and services than the average dealership! This is truly amazing to watch. Take a look at the full list of vendors that are going above and beyond!

Internet Director Development Training Workshop - October 13-14, Cherry Hill - New Jersey
Your sales team starts working way before a potential buyer walks into your dealership. Whether your Internet Coordinator connects with a customer via an online lead or an inbound call, the interaction between the dealership representative and shopper is extremely crucial. You want to make sure your each member of your team has outstanding persuasion and communication skills. If your sales rep can not effectively communicate with your consumer, it is very unlikely that he will close the deal.
Although you can equip your team with scripts and a list of objections and rebuttals, there may come a time where your representative is required to go off script in order to meet the needs of the client. When this happens, your staff must have the proper to remain calm and handle the situation with ease. Every member of your staff should be familiar with the daily process of your dealership. They should know the ins and outs of your CRM and be able to ask all general questions customers may have.
Also, make sure your entire team is aware of the products and services your dealership has to offer. Not only will this allow them to address customer concerns, but it will also enable them to suggest additional services to buyers, resulting in more revenue for your business.
When your sales team is properly trained, they will be confident in their ability to sell. A confident salesperson builds trust with his customers. If a customer trusts his sales associate, he is more likely to make a purchase at your dealership.

Internet Sales 20 Group 7 New York, May 18-20 - Automotive Sales Workshop
This week, Anthony Alagona talks about "Building Value." How do you build value in yourself, your vehicle, and your dealership? Building value in yourself starts with identifying yourself to the prospect and establish a clear channel of communication. Building value in the vehicle starts by telling the prospect about the vehicle and selling the prospect on all of the special deatures that make the vehicle stand out. Building value in the dealership starts with passionately selling your value package to the prospect and explaining the benefits it can offer. Remember: People do not buy what you sell, they buy what you believe.

This Monday Sean talks about the question, "What did you say?" Have you ever met someone that sounds stupid? There's a saying, "It's better to keep your mouth shut, and let them think you're a fool than open your mouth and prove it." Potential buyers can not see you, so you need to create a positive image of yourself through your words by being articulate, educated, and sensible. Listen to what the prospect is saying and then meet their questions and expectations strategically.
