Yes, the Top Dog team and +Melonie Dodaro are always looking to help our passionate and loyal followers with anything and everything  Social Media Marketing.
Well, today we'd like to pass around the word that we've created a new board on #Pinterest  catered specifically to the intricate details, strategies and techniques of  #SocialSelling .

Let us introduce: Social Selling Training, Tips & Infographics:

Social selling is a sales technique that leverages social media to get and maintain a 360 degree picture of the clients and their influencers on an ongoing basis. It's been shown to help sale professionals manage and maintain 5 times as many active customers compared to traditional techniques and the same can be applied to any B2B company or professional service provider.

Follow the board here:

Is your social media strategy not working? Are you struggling to monetize your social media efforts?

Do you feel stumped when it comes to the “selling” part of social selling?

I understand the frustration you feel when it seems like your social media strategy isn’t working. Fortunately, I’ve  identified that there is a pattern to both successful and failing strategies. To explain this more easily, I have compressed social media marketing and social selling into four actionable stages.

“Content that helps is superior to content that sells.” –@jaybaer

 “Give them what they want in your free giveaways. Teach them what they need to know in your paid offerings” –@amyporterfield

If you were in San Diego last month for Social Media Examiner’s Social Media Marketing World, you already know how incredible it was. The heaviest hitters in the social media industry were all present, sharing heaps of undiluted marketing genius as attendees soaked it in like a sponge.

The keynote speakers were electrifying and we combed through over 50,000 tweets to find the absolute best quotes from as many of them as possible. You’ll be amazed at the sheer volume of insights and quotes that come from social media giants like Mari Smith, Jay Baer, Ted Rubin, Amy Porterfield and Marcus Sheridan, aka The Sales Lion.
