Here at SalesQuants, we’ve been talking a lot about social selling recently, and we think building social profile equity is going to be a major theme of 2015. To my colleagues in sales who pride themselves on social savvy (or are striving to become champs in this realm), do not hesitate to check out these 4 tips on social selling from Atri Chatterjee, chief marketing officer of Act-On Software.
