    3.8: How to Effectively Incorporate Social Media into a B2B Sales Strategy (Julie Atherton)

    3.8: How to Effectively Incorporate Social Media into a B2B Sales Strategy (Julie Atherton)

    As we've learned this season, videos, emails, virtual events, and personalized demos all help to continue conversations with both prospects and buyers, but what about meeting prospects and buyers on the channel where they already spend a lot of their day (for better or for worse)?

    That channel is social media, and if used correctly, it can be the secret to cutting through sales noise.

    Julie Atherton, the founder of Small Wonder, a social media transformation advisory and marketing consultancy, has spent the past 15 years researching social media's role in a buying cycle. Today, she joins Sammi for the Season 3 finale to share her best practices for starting, and continuing, conversations with both prospects and buyers through social media.

    That's why for this week's episode we sat down with Kristin Moore, the Head of Sales Development at Motive - a platform that combines hardware with AI-powered applications to connect and automate physical operations - to see how her team does it.

    With 7+ years in the business development world, Kristin shares what she's found to be successful when it comes to outbound messaging that converts, how to maintain close alignment between AEs and SDRs, and how to keep her team motivated through the end of the quarter.

    No one knows this better than Kelly Cheng, the Head of Marketing and Growth at Goldcast. On this week's episode, Kelly shares her secrets for enabling sales to invite their prospects to events, communicating the ROI of events to the broader go-to-market organization, and creating events that people will actually want to talk about.

Fun & Educational!

Basically a crash course in conversational marketing delivered in the most conversational way (pun intended), by the talented Sammi Reinstein and Sara Pion. These 🔥 marketers are knowledgeable, quick-witted, and articulate, making this podcast an easy listen that I can walk away from confidently saying I know a bit more about what conversational marketing actually is.

A Must-Listen for All Marketers!

Sara Pion and Sammi Reinstein outlined conversational marketing, in a clear and succinct way. Marketers must understand this idea because it’s the newest and freshest way to interact with customers today, that are wanting that “wow” experience with businesses.

They started this podcast off with a bang, and I highly recommend this podcast for modern marketers that prioritize their customers.

Check it out! 🔥
