To be effective today, salespeople need to know how to influence and sell both in-person and online, both face-to-face and on social media.

  • To thrive in the 21st century, you need to be able to influence and sell everywhere: in person, online and in social media.
  • How do you influence people on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Skype, or Whatsapp? Which social media sites and strategies are most effective? You might be surprised!
  • Brian separates the profitable from the unprofitable, the must-do from the wait-and-see, and gives you solid advice about where to invest your time, both now and in the future.
