Clients ask us this question because our content marketing software finds and provides content for social selling initiatives. In conjunction with our software, our clients also want strategic advice and training so their sales teams can keep up with social selling best practices.
To answer the question, “Do you know any social selling training companies?” we developed a list of the Top 23 Social Selling Training Companies. First, we started with a large pool of candidates by asking our network and searching Google, LinkedIn, and Kitedesk’s social sales influencer list. Then, we narrowed the list to 23 after analyzing each company’s website, LinkedIn employee profiles, and social presence. While more comprehensive, our methodology can be summed up by one question: would we put this company on a short list that we would give to one of our clients?
Yes, 23 is a lot of “top” social selling training companies. But, since the market is still evolving, we recommend choosing social selling training companies on this list that best match your specific objectives and needs. Some social selling training companies specialize by social network, industry, sales team characteristic, or company size. Others prefer a particular training format type such as speaking, small group, webinar or video training. And, location may be an important consideration.
A good social selling training program that meets your needs, combined with the right software, metrics, processes, and team, will kickstart any social selling initiative.
Please share with us your social selling training experience. If we missed a company that should be on this list let us know in the comments section.
