Corona Tools Treechat Tom MartinWhen you are promoting your brand or business, the cold calling can be the worst part of the job.  Forget the cold calls, why not tap into sales potential of social networks? Social selling is like cold calling, except the calls are warm and welcome because they are based on helping the prospect make a buying decision versus just trying to close a deal.

You can successfully combine social media and the science of propinquity to grow your business without ever making a single cold call, sending an unsolicited piece of direct mail, running advertising or using paid outbound marketing of any kind. Painlessly Prospecting on Social Networks is our topic on this special #treechat.
