Episode 16: What do you really need to successfully sell to corporates?

So what do you REALLY need to sell to corporates? If you think you need a website or a killer corporate CV to sell to corporates then take a listen to this podcast episode. I share my expertise about what you do and don’t need to successfully sell to corporates. Some of the answers might surprise you.

Find out why you don’t need a fancy pants website or to have worked for a corporate in the past to sell to one now and why passion and specialism is MORE important than your past CV.

I explain what you DO need to sell to corporates and what you DON’T and why you don’t need to be on every single social media platform going.

Plus the key things that you need to get right down to how you show up online. I give my insight into how you can demonstrate your expertise without being a boring know-it-all. And why you have to walk the talk.

I share my tips on how to get LinkedIn to work for you and why you might not be getting the most out of your LinkedIn profile especially if you haven’t got your audience right and how to fix it.

Plus the ONE thing that you MUST be able to do if you are going to successfully sell to corporate organisations – and why it isn’t all about saying yes!
