“The Death of Selling?”

with Dave Brock

Dave Brock, one of the very first guests on #BizLockerRadio (Episode No. 5), is back to discuss the current state of B2B selling, and the recent suggestion that over 1 million B2B sales jobs will be eliminated by 2020. We will also talk about the impact of social media on selling and the ways in which companies must respond and adapt – or become irrelevant.

Some social selling advocates have projected the loss of over 1 million B2B sales jobs by 2020, and while Dave is a supporter of social media as a sales tool, he thoroughly disagrees with that conclusion. Read his scathing commentary in his blog post, “Deja Vu All Over Again.”
