Episode 63: Social Selling Strategies Using LinkedIn, Video & More: An Interview with Autoklose CEO Shawn Finder

By Scott Sambucci | July 9, 2019

In today’s guest episode I had the privilege of sitting down with CEO and Founder Shawn Finder as we discussed the topic “Social Selling Strategies Using LinkedIn, Video & More.”  

Shawn is the CEO and Founder of Autoklose; the first sales email automation platform powered by machine learning. Their searchable database is jam-packed with millions of verified B2B leads. Pick a niche, generate a targeted list, turn autopilot mode on, and you’re done. You don’t have to make cold calls or deal with a gatekeeper anymore. 

In addition, Autoklose is a well-rounded outbound sales platform featuring an automated lead generation software, email drip campaign management tool, and different CRM integrations. 

Some of the topics that we discussed in today’s podcast are:

  • Shawn’s background and how he made the transition from finance to sales. 
  • How to use social media as part of your outbound outreach and campaigns – specifically LinkedIn
  • Content development – How to get more likes, comments, shares, and reviews.
  • The importance of being the “Brand” and using the different networks even before using the new automated platforms.
  • The right way to use LinkedIn to build your network – starting from sending an invite to interacting with the prospect.
  • When the best time to post on your social network is when you have a super busy schedule.
  • New and improved software tools and features to promote your business on LinkedIn.
