Social Selling with LinkedIn Sales Navigator and Dynamics 365
The sales profession is changing. Buyers are quick to reject anything that feels generic or impersonal, making conventional tactics like cold calling less impactful. LinkedIn Sales Navigator makes it simple to engage in social selling, a modern approach to sales that uses information from social networks to grow revenue. It harnesses the power of LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network with over 433M members, to target the right buyers, understand what they value, and engage with personalized outreach throughout the buying process. With Sales Navigator, sales professionals can build and nurture trusted customer relationships that leads to increased sales performance.

This session showcases Sales Navigator - and how it integrates into Dynamics 365.
