What the Hootsuite ecosystem means for social selling

  • Lead development representatives (LDR): The faster the LDR can acquire, research, and qualify leads, the shorter the overall sales cycle will be for the enterprise. Find out how the Hootsuite ecosystem helps LDRs monitor social media for better leads through real-time buying signals that identify when prospects are at the most important moments in the buying process.

LDRs can quickly consolidate multiple sources of social media intelligence and seamlessly incorporate that information into CRM and marketing automation platforms. And Hootsuite’s App Directory offers CRM integrations to help streamline lead generation.

  • Account executives: It’s all about developing relationships for account executives. They are now required to engage with prospects across multiple channels, with the goal of creating profitable business relationships from these social interactions. Learn how the Hootsuite ecosystem helps leverage social relationships to connect with decision-makers at the right time. And Hootsuite’s social partnerships give account executives a 360-degree view of prospects through multiple sources.
  • Account managers: This is arguably the area most positively affected by social media. Account managers need to be nimble and aware in order to positively shape customer relationships and the strategic direction of your accounts. See how the Hootsuite ecosystem can help leverage social media for intelligence, providing real-time insights into the issues that matter to clients to keep account managers ahead of the industry.

Hootsuite helps sales teams provide the same level of support and professionalism on social media that they already deliver on traditional channels.
