Why Be Social?

Are your sales professionals using social media effectively in their sales practices? Are they connecting with their clients effectively? In order to be seen as influential and the leading edge by their customers, prospects, and centers of influence, they must be using social media. Is their business struggling to connect with the next generation? Wondering how they can do social media the right way, without pushing your products and services? Want their business to be top of mind when people are thinking of where to go for what you offer?

It’s no longer enough to just BE on social media as a business. You need to be using it effectively, and you need to engage your employees to tell your stories and show you as the place to go in your community.

Phil provides relevant and implementable strategies to:

  • Integrate social media into your existing sales process
  • Nurture your existing client and prospect relationships
  • Deepen your network
  • Understand and use the latest sales technologies
  • Be more referable by your clients, prospects, and centers of influence
  • Grow your business

Put simply, Phil Gerbyshak can teach your team to leverage their offline and online connections to get you more leads faster, increase introductions and referrals, and close more sales.

“Phil is one of those rare Lynchpins whose artistic approach to life, business, technology and relationships puts him in the category of the “New Elite” that Seth Godin speaks about: “those people who are actively engaged in new ideas, actively seeking out change, actively engaging.” He’s been doing this his whole career and he’s fearless in showing up authentically and with HEART. Phil is changing the world with his message, and has the bandwidth to transform and connect with audiences, indeed, with the world, like a Rock Star. He is prolific in generating new ideas and providing creative solutions that are innovative, fresh and game-changing. Phil is my hero and I am fortunate to be part of his circle.”
Laura Parrino Byxbe, Career Management Consultant, Right Management

“Phil has spoken to the Recruiter Network on three different occasions. Once on branding. Once on LinkedIn & Facebook, and once on Twitter. Each time Phil has given an awesome presentation! He presents his subject matter in a way that teaches people new to the subject that they need to know to get started, yet giving great advanced ideas to those who are familiar with the subject. His presentations are very personable, fun, and relevant in the real world. He has a passion for his subjects and is always learning, so even if you have seen him multiple times you will always be able to pick up something new. He truly does make his presentations great. I highly recommend him!”
Everet Kamikawa, Past President, Recruiter Network

“Phil Gerbyshak combines a deep knowledge of technology with a passion for connecting with audiences. He makes a potentially dry subject fun and engaging, and he left the crowd wanting more! (If you want proof of this, I have a photo of the pile of business cards that audience members gave him at the end of the talk.)

Corporate America is lucky to have an expert presenter in technology like Phil Gerbyshak. So just hire him already!”
Bruce Weinstein

Baird, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, Association of Applied and Therapeutic Humor, Office Max, Fish & Wildlife Service, HP User Forum, Biz Times Expo, Social Media Club, Successful Online Business Conference, HDI (formerly Help Desk Institute) national conference and numerous local chapters, many chambers of commerce, and many more groups and businesses.

Biography

Your business needs someone who is an expert in social media (online, digital) marketing to better connect you with your customers and prospects, wherever they are. And you need someone who understands social selling is NOT the silver bullet because let’s face it, NOTHING is!

Traditional advertising, marketing and sales tactics are not enough. You must integrate them with social media. Why? Because people believe what other people say (social proof) MUCH more than they believe what you say about your business. Have you ever read hotel reviews on a travel site? Yep. That.

Phil will work with you (and your team if you have one) to create a social media strategy for your organization, then create a plan you can execute on, and check in with you each month to see how you are doing and offer guidance.

Think of him as your personal social marketing strategist, social media business trainer, and secret weapon.

Need help creating an effective online presence for yourself and/or your business, so you get measurable results from your online activities? He can help you to set goals so you can monitor your progress, and put your name/company name out there in the right way so customers/prospects will want to interact with you.

Need help? We know great people!

If you prefer, Phil can help you develop a strategy and bring in professionals to implement the strategy for you, with input and assistance from you.

Some of the ways Phil can work with you to set up and/or teach you to update your online properties include:

  • Blogs (writing and reading)
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Facebook
  • Contact Management
  • Video content creation
  • Email Newsletters
  • Website Enhancements
  • Thank-You Notes

Presentations

67% of sales people don’t hit their quota. To get to quota, social selling must no longer be optional – it must be a requirement to do business in the 21st century. But it isn’t enough.

Trusted advisors and value based service professionals rely on their networks for introductions and referrals, yet connections aren’t enough to make the sale. Staying top of mind in your network, making it easy to connect and simple to hire you is key.

You have a LinkedIn profile, and you have more connections than you can keep up with, but so what? Are you actually getting any business from LinkedIn or just collecting connections?  Making the sale doesn’t have to be difficult. Phil Gerbyshak lays out an easy to implement plan to turn your connections into dollars.

Program outline:

Do you have an account on LinkedIn, but struggle to get any business from it?

Do you try to connect to the right people but they just never accept the connection?

Have you integrated LinkedIn into your daily schedule or is it still just something you do “when you get around to it?”

Join LinkedIn trainer and social selling speaker Phil Gerbyshak as he helps you get connected to virtually anyone on LinkedIn and integrate LinkedIn into your daily sales routine.

You’ll learn:

  • How to get dressed before you get busy – and create a profile that is better than at least 75% of the LinkedIn population;
  • Learn the LinkedIn Daily Dozen – 12 things you can do every day to stay in front of your customers, prospects and referral sources;

Work, leadership, and communication has changed a lot in the last 10 years, and it’s going to change 150 times in the next 10 years — and then 350 times in the 10 years after that. Are you ready for VR at work? It’s coming. So how do you set yourself up to stop screeching about how it “won’t affect you” and actually get work done?

In this program, you will learn:

  • What the heck is “social” – and how can you use it to connect you, your team, and your prospective team?
  • How can social help you with your own brand?
  • Evolve or Die: Leaders need to stay ahead of the learning curve, and stay one step (or more) ahead of their team.
  • Create your own personalized learning plan and a template to share with your team so they can create theirs

Do you spend most of your time on the go, running from meeting to meeting, and have no idea how you’ll get what you need to done every day, much less make the money you want to make, without working 15-20 hour days?

Do you believe there’s got to be a better way!  There is – and it’s called Pocket Profitability (or Pocket Productivity if you’re not in sales).  Join technology guru and networking superhero Phil Gerbyshak, as he shares how you can run up to 90% of your business from your smart phone, quickly, effectively, and using apps that don’t cost a lot of time or tech savviness and increase your profits, and get your life back!

  • Learn how to reclaim 5 hours or more of their time per week
  • Learn how to manage their email, calendar and attachments.

  • And much more!

  • Learn the power of notifications
  • Manage your e-mail and attachments more effectively
  • Manage your calendar more effectively
  • Got Gratitude? MUST method
  • Delegation Made Easy (even if you have nobody to delegate to)
