Dear Sales Rep, It’s Not Business as Usual. Adapt or Be Replaced.

Cold Calling vs. Social Selling

Is it just me, or do you also think sales reps need to take digital more seriously? I have had a number of experiences where the sales team I worked with was convinced that social media and the gamut is only for marketing.
