Master the Use of LinkedIn for Prospecting and Selling
LinkedIn is responsible for 80% of the Business-to-Business sales leads created on the Internet. If you're not leveraging this professional social network, you're missing opportunity.
For those of us who provide products and services to other businesses, the effectiveness of the LinkedIn platform should not be ignored. However, conventional instruction is to 1) join the platform, 2) connect with others and 3) post content. This activity alone will not create new opportunities or land your next client. You need prospecting and sales strategy.
Join Charlie Van Derven from Social Advisors for a deep dive into LinkedIn and LinkedIn Sales Navigator.
In this lunch and learn session, Charlie will share the strategies that Social Advisors uses to drive 45% more sales opportunities for their B2B clients. Come with an open mind and a willingness to learn the routines you can implement to create a stronger professional presence and consistent sales opportunities using LinkedIn and LinkedIn Sales Navigator. Join us for this No-Cost Workshop.

Oct. 11, 9-11 a.m.
Government Contracting: Overview
Presented by Steven South, PTAC at UCF Procurement Specialist
Federal, State, and Local Government procurement is the largest target market in the world. The question is usually not "Does the government buy what you are selling?" is more "Can you be competitive enough and relentless enough to position your business to win government contracts?". If you think you can be competitive, then government contracting may be a good growth opportunity for your business.

The Florida SBDC at EFSC's "Government Contracting Overview" seminar is designed for established small business owners with some commercial momentum that are curious about government contracting, as well as business owners that may already be involved in government contracting. The workshop is based on a 10-step framework that helps newer contractors understand the process and helps more experienced contractors identify opportunities to 'backfill' best practices in their efforts.

You will also have the opportunity to network with other small business owners and learn about the Florida SBDC's "Bid-Match" service that can be a helpful marketing research tool.

 Join us for this No-Cost Workshop.
