How the LinkedIn Sales Solutions Team Embraces Sales Navigator
“As a sales organization that sells a social selling product to sales organizations, it is not lost on us that we must fully embrace our solution.” says LinkedIn VP of Sales Mike Derezin.
Sales Navigator is integrated into every aspect of the LinkedIn team’s workday, its tools serving as means to improve and evaluate performance. One important way the Sales Solutions team has created opportunity is through TeamLink, a tool which reveals organizational relationships reps can leverage to gain warm introductions. And with buyers five times more likely to engage if a first connection is warm, the ability to quickly find warm paths to prospects has proven especially beneficial.

At Softchoice, buy-in at the executive level has changed perspectives on how all personnel feel about leveraging one another’s relationships. Use of Sales Navigator from the top down – even the company’s CEO has a license – has resulted in a stronger social selling culture.
In companies like Softchoice, executive leadership embracing network sharing has helped to “flatten” the organization so that all sales professional are dedicated to organizational goals, not just personal quotas. Softchoice’s social selling adoption practices are an excellent reminder that change needs to start at the top.
