LinkedIn Eliminates the Need for Cold CallingLinkedIn Eliminates the Need for Cold Calling

No one likes cold calling, for it is tortuous for both the caller and the receiver. As a successful networking site, LinkedIn has recognized this problem. They have begun offering a Sales Navigator tool in hopes of cutting down on cold calling and boosting sales. Although you do have to pay to use this feature on the site, many users see desirable results. On average social selling leaders enjoy these benefits: 45% more opportunities created, 51% more likely to achieve quota, 80% more productive and 3X more likely to go to club, according to LinkedIn.com.

LinkedIn is confident in their product, so they allow for a free trial of using the Sales Navigator Tool for 30 days with no commitment. After our 30 days you can choose to buy a plan and pay each month or buy a whole year (you will save 20%). It is approximately $788 a year for individual premium access, and $1,200 for team access.

LinkedIn group product manager Sachin Rekhi told TechCrunch that the Sales Navigator covers four key areas: “establishing a presence on social networks, finding the right people, engaging with those people, and building trust.” The tool has many features that address these four areas as it recommends sales leads, delivers new mentions about influential contacts, identifies mutual connections with members within your company, notifies users of key contacts’ job changes and more. Sales Navigator may provide you with an edge in social sales, but as LinkedIn says: it’s still up to you to ABC, Always Be Closing.
