Episode 34: Selling Has Changed with Anil Menghani

I know this might sound like an overstatement – but it’s true:

This week I caught up with someone who’s completely reinvented the selling process.

Anil Menghani won LinkedIn’s first “Modern Sales Award”.

Even better: His team is crushing it using these techniques!

As Anil says: “The award recognises salespeople who are “LinkedIn savvy, who are really up there on their game of online engagement”

Take note:

Salespeople need to keep up with the changes or be left behind.

And make no mistake:

This is not the kind of sales I usually talk about – where you create content and people inbound to you.

These changes have transformed traditional, outbound business development.

Anil’s comments closely echo what Laura Erderm told me earlier:

That salespeople who pass off LinkedIn marketing as “not my job” are not really doing their jobs!

There’s a whole new playbook and it’s built around 3 C’s: content, community and commitment.

And if you think that sounds more like “marketing” than “sales”, you’ve definitely missed the memo!
