🚫You don’t need Sales Nav to have a optimised LinkedIn profile or to build a personal brand or
🚫You don’t need Sales Nav to find the right people and engage them with valuable conversations
🚫You don’t need Sales Nav to create amazing content.
❓ Ask yourself these 3 questions to begin with:
1) Are your prospects on LinkedIn & active?
2) Are you actively using LinkedIn to grow your business by connecting/conversating with prospects?
3) Are you already engaging your ideal customer via the free LinkedIn Search?
If the answer is yes and you are hitting the limits of the Freemium LinkedIn tools, you are heading towards the Premium.
⚡I am a fan & active user and Sales Nav could be worth your money. But only if you have an effective way to get your target audience engaged. Otherwise, you are paying without using those extra tools to the fullest. Like having a gym membership and not using it properly.
How about you? Did you or are you using sales Nav and what are your good/bad experiences with it? Share your insights. 👇
