Tim Hughes - The Social Selling Expert

Tim Hughes is a transformational leader, best selling author of “Social Selling: Techniques to Influence Buyers and Changemakers”, and a top 10 Social Media influencer. Tim joins host Doyle Buehler and discusses why people need to embrace the social selling process because, “If you don’t sell, you don't make money, therefore you don’t actually exist”. With a background in sales and sales management, Tim has been involved in Social Media for over 7 years, having built a following on Twitter of 160,000 and becoming a top 10 influencer. He spent the last 3 years working on the largest sales and marketing business transformations; transitioning a business that did a small number of high-value sales on premise to a model that supports volume and velocity; Cloud and SaaS.    Tim enables sales people to thrive in modern social selling techniques and explores why you don’t just need to sell your brand, you need to learn to sell yourself. Tim instructs listeners to “Google themselves” immediately and gives steps on how to build a more intriguing profile. He has built a unique framework to support selling and marketing using white boarding, storytelling, ROI model, benefit selling etc. . .Forget tradition! Buying and selling will never be the same and the disruption is only going to get bigger. Social selling has been and will continue to be norm. The only reason it’s called “social selling” instead of “selling” is that we need to differentiate it from the “old”.
