Social sellers might be on the road a lot, but all of them use mobile phones. With smartphones getting more and more capable you should be making the most of them! If you want to streamline your social selling efforts, then you need the tools which make organisation, record-keeping and interactions easy. I’ve rounded up three mobile apps which any social seller can benefit from:
As a salesperson, you’re often on the go and meetings can take up a large part of your day. With traffic and travel times, it can be hard to see more than three or four clients a day. One way to save time is online conference, but this can be a hassle to set up if you’re working with people who use different operating systems and are in different time zones. GoToMeeting is one the top online conferencing tools that can be used. You can share screens and setting up a meeting requires only a few clicks.
With the Pro version here’s also recording functionality built in so you can send a video message to those who might have just missed your meeting. On the free platform you can have 5 people in the meeting but with the Pro version that jumps to 25.

Social sellers have to read a lot – not only about social media and marketing, but they also have to stay on top of their industry and their clients’ businesses. If you’re used to consuming content such as multimedia or articles in small chunks and being interrupted, thereby forgetting to read the rest of an article that you were interested in, then Pocket is for you. This app lets you save content to a Cloud folder so that you can go back to it and read it later. There are also tags that you can use to organise your content easily.
Pocket has a much clearer interface than built in bookmarks. For instance you can set Pocket up to automatically filter by media type. So if you just want to watch a couple of videos rather than read an article it’s easy to find that content without searching through dozens of Pocketed URLs.

Being on the road and in boardrooms a lot means you probably have your clients’ contact information saved on different platforms and in different places. The Sidekick CRM tool gives you access to the vital information you need fast, wherever you go. Just find the client website and the Sidekick app can scrape a ton of useful information. It can really speed up your research on a business and with integration with a HubSpot like platform it can export the data allowing you to populate contact information fields with the single click of a button.
A feature of Sidekick I find useful everyday is the ability to track when emails are opened, it can be great for triggering a follow-up call. Not only that but Sidekick will also show which links within an email are clicked, this lets you give some really timely customer service.
