If somebody approached you in 1995 and told you they could send your sales team comprehensive biographies and contact information of all the decision makers in your target market, including photos, work history, start dates, educational history, etc., what would you have paid them for this incredible mountain of information?
Now imagine they told you they could connect the dots between people you already know, and those decision makers – turning “cold calls” into “friendly introductions.”
You wouldn’t have bought this, because there’s no way you would believe such a thing existed. And it didn’t.
What started as an annoying invitation you got from some nerd in your business network has grown to become the most powerful tool in sales and relationship marketing the planet has ever known. A wealth of information about your prospects, your target market, decision makers, thought leaders, influencers and competitors is at your fingertips.
