The Sales Evangelist

You spent a week crafting the perfect LinkedIn post and are ready to share it. However, after five hours, you only get crickets on your post. 

Maybe if you wait a few days, someone will acknowledge it. Two days later, you receive one like on your LinkedIn post.

Frustrated, you scream, “Why is no one paying attention to my content on LinkedIn!”

In this episode of The Sales Evangelist Podcast, host Donald C. Kelly discusses the importance of generating engagement on LinkedIn. He provides valuable insights on creating compelling content to capture the attention of potential prospects. 

Donald outlines three key strategies to boost engagement: focusing on top-of-funnel discussions, addressing objections, and curating relevant content. Discover the best way to get attention on LinkedIn in this five-minute episode.

Understanding Your Audience for Effective Content Creation

  • Donald emphasizes the significance of understanding the needs and interests of one’s ideal customers. He recommends aligning content with top-of-funnel topics, such as common questions and initial concerns in prospect conversations.
  • Using his own experience, Donald illustrates how he addresses queries about leveraging LinkedIn for sales and team performance, emphasizing the importance of tailoring content to address prospective clients’ early-stage inquiries.

Overcoming Objections Through Strategic Content Creation

  • Donald delves into how sales professionals can transform common objections into engaging LinkedIn posts. He introduces the “feel, felt, found” strategy, a powerful approach to constructing persuasive content by acknowledging objections, empathizing with prospects, and ultimately offering solutions.
  • Through an example related to CRM adoption objections, Donald demonstrates how to craft a thought-provoking post that delineates common objections and effectively provides insights into the benefits of CRM integration.

Leveraging Curated Content for Enhanced Engagement

  • Acknowledging the value of third-party insights, Donald advocates for incorporating curated content into LinkedIn posts. By sourcing relevant articles and resources addressing prevalent challenges experienced by prospects, sales professionals can position themselves as valuable sources of industry knowledge.
  • Donald highlights employee retention as a critical concern for businesses and encourages leveraging curated content to offer insights and solutions, fostering engagement and demonstrating expertise.
