In this episode of Making Sales Social Live, the Social Sales Link team talked about “Digital Sales Automation: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.”


Things you will learn in this episode:

* The “ugly” part of digital sales automation can start with the very first interaction between a seller using a “bot” and a prospect. Prospects know it’s a bot immediately after they accept a LinkedIn connection request and they get an immediate reply — usually with a pitch. That’s why I say, “When you start a relationship with a bot, you’ll always be a bot with your prospect.” You can’t build trust with a bot. — Bob Woods

* There are a lot of outreach messages when it comes to engaging with LinkedIn for social selling, and the dreaded copy and paste or worse — rewriting it every time — is so time-consuming! Make it more efficient by leveraging, a free Chrome extension that stores your templates and makes it easy to retrieve them on demand. — Brynne Tillman
