Hello Agents! In a day and age where the internet and social media are taking over, did you know that it could have a positive effect on your sales? As a Sales Partner with FlashBanc, today we are going to dive into the world of Social Media and how it could have a positive impact on your sales.

Enhancing Your Personal Brand 

Social media is the platform a FlashBanc Sales Agent can use to better their personal brand. As you know there are many social media outlets such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and many more. It is imperative to have a page dedicated to you as a Sales Agent and display what potential merchants may take interest in seeing.  On your social media account, it should set a tone to your audience who may come across your page. It should show the viewer that you are a respectable Sales Agent and that you are ready to sell a solution to any future merchant problem. Also, once you have a feel about what kind of post is catching the attention of your audience, you want to keep creating the same content to keep the consistency. 

Social media is also another way that can increase your credibility as a Sales Agent. One way you can increase your credibility as a Sales Agent is by including current merchant testimonials and tips you felt that have benefited you and will benefit your audience. Also, by sharing the merchant’s testimonials, it shows your audience that you have merchants who do stand with you and FlashBanc. 

An Outlet to Find a Potential Merchant 

Social Media is a way for Sales Agents to see business around the area they lived in. As a Sales Partner with FlashBanc, we encourage our agents to sell to who they know and to other small businesses around their town. Being active on social media will allow you to connect with more potential merchants in less time. It will also allow you to see what new small businesses arose in the area. Not only will social media allow agents to connect with potential merchants, it will also give agents a way to research prospecting businesses. 

However, if an Agent takes another way of looking up business and creates a list from their searches, they can then search the list on social media. A company’s social media page will display what the company has to offer the public, how they want their customers to feel, and what makes them stand out from others. As a Sales Agent, you could use that to your advantage. When you enter the store to sell the benefits of FlashBanc, talk to the potential merchant about the great things you saw and talk about the great things they have to offer to the community.  When Sales Agents start off with the positives and are pitching  to sell a solution to the potential merchant, the merchant will be more open to listening. As a result of listening, the merchant will be more likely to make a deal.  

Social Media may just be one of many outlets of putting yourself out there as a Sales Agent but it is an important one that all agents should try.
