Boards - A Beginner's Guide
Updated: Dec 27, 2021
Selling on social media has dominated the way many sales reps sell for over 10 years. Peer to peer selling via mobile phones leverages social networking sites to identify new customers, build relationships and essentially - close more sales. It’s become the modern day sales process as it’s so quick and easy to interact on apps such as WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram.
Mobile sellers communicate mostly with several customers simultaneously across different channels and platforms and are required to maintain a high quality level of service. They repeatedly answer the same questions, and send the same messages over and over again - copying and pasting texts from their notes and other apps, searching for pieces of content in their mobile devices, online storage platforms and in the cloud. This makes effective social selling no easy task. Sales teams need to utilize the right tools to help improve and streamline their selling efforts.
That’s where Boards comes in..
