We hosted a panel discussion on Sales and Social Media – and here’s what happened…
Whether you’re an established business, or just starting out – one thing is for sure, you’ve had a conversation about how to sell during the covid-19 pandemic. And I’d put money on the fact most (if not all of you…) have suggested using social media more.
Not surprising, and absolutely right to do! But over the last few months what has become apparent is the amount of us who are not social media experts… Not meant as an insult, we all have our strengths – which is why we assembled a panel of industry experts in our region to level the playing field and help us unify our selling on social media platforms.
Simon Clayton (Marketing Skills Academy), Jess Facchini-Tucker (Social Allies) and Paul Lancaster (Plan Digital UK, Newcastle Startup Week) joined us today to help shed some light on best practices to sell on Linked In, Instagram and Twitter. With over 50 delegates registering to attend, we already had high hopes for what came next…
With relaxed conversation (and a bit of friendly platform rivalry!) the panel quickly set about giving out amazing tips, tricks and advice on how best to get the most out of each platform, and different ways of selling and attracting audiences. But it was the lively and continued engagement from the delegates that really set this panel alight. It’s rare these days that a video call or conference sparks so much engagement, but with the delegates keen to learn all they could in the time allowed, it was exciting to try and field so many queries.
I won’t go into specifics of what was discussed (because you can watch the whole session for free on our YouTube channel *shameless plug*) but what was overwhelming obvious to us was that people are keen to learn, keen to engage and very keen to grow online. And this is so exciting in a time where the world seems so uncertain.
So, let’s stick together, learn together and grow together. With more panels and webinars in the pipeline for coming weeks, we can’t wait to get more of you in front of exciting industry leaders and join you on that journey of discover too!
