Selling on LinkedIn Service

Updated: Jan 8

How to sell on LinkedIn WITHOUT the advertising costs or looking like a sales sleaze.

LinkedIn is considered the world’s MOST important business networking platform!

  • B2B Marketers globally prefer to use LinkedIn over Facebook

  • 80% of B2B sales leads come from LinkedIn networks

  • 45% of business marketers have gained customers through LinkedIn

  • 91% of Australian executives rate LinkedIn as their first choice for professionally relevant content.

  • Around 45% of the LinkedIn content consumers are in upper-level positions (managers, CEOs, VPs, Directors, and C-Level Management).

With more than 500 million professional profiles, LinkedIn provides an almost unlimited supply of business network connections, career options, and brand marketing opportunities.

With extensive investment in software development across modules such as LinkedIn Recruitment, LinkedIn Learning, Professional Groups, and Sales Navigator now sees LinkedIn as the world’s leading business platform.

Over the years, marketers have abused the sales opportunity of LinkedIn and have been pestering the business profiles with spammy sales messages and offers.

Today, reputable business people who use LinkedIn have become more protected of their profile information and the acceptance of connection and message requests (for good reason).

As a result, the LinkedIn platform has become more difficult to use and can be a challenge for authentic business people who are trying to use it for networking, lead generation, education, and showcasing product innovation & achievements.

Using LinkedIn the RIGHT way!

LinkedIn Loyalists’ like myself can teach you how to use LinkedIn the RIGHT way.

Over the last 20 years using LinkedIn through trial and error, I’ve worked out how to build trust and credibility on LinkedIn, the foundation that has allowed me to successfully promote my business brands, create some amazing business connection, and also generate sales.

NO, this is NOT another “buy my system for guaranteed $ales results”Those systems, as you know, are rubbish, and do nothing apart from destroying your credibility or worse, have your profile reported.

Nothing I have created here is rocket science trust me…Yes, you can do all of this yourself (if you have the time).

After years of dealing with so-called LinkedIn training professionals, each trying to flog their “secret formula to success,” I’ve taken the bits that actually did work and combined them with the systems we created and used ourselves; we’ve done the hard part.

The result is a well-documented process of all the things that have worked for me, PLUS the supporting tools, templates, tricks and tips all bundled into my ‘Selling on LinkedIn’ Service.

Selling on LinkedIn service is not another long-winded subscription program where you pay me, download the files, and then forget about it.

This one-on-one service is a 4-module series that we do together, keeping you focused and on track.

I am really happy with this program, and I feel that its best suited to business owners / managers, sales and account managers, plus entrepreneurs launching a start-up business.

If you want to use LinkedIn as a cost-effective business development and branding tool without annoying your audience, being spammy, or coming across as a sales sleaze, then my Selling on LinkedIn service is PERFECT for you…

  3. Don’t try and flog something on your first messages

  4. Don’t ignore rejection messages. Be professional and follow through and thank people for their time.
