What's Inside The Book

Jill Rowley

The CEO of Jill Rowley Inc. and #SocialSelling

"Buying has changed more in the past 10 years than the past 100. Unfortunately, sales and marketing hasn't. Every sales, marketing, enablement, and operations leader needs a Social Selling blueprint, and this book is the best one I've seen."

John Barrows

CEO of J. Barrows LLC

"Social Selling is one of the hardest things to define, execute and track the impact of these days. Everyone seems to have a different opinion on what it is and how to do it. This book is the most comprehensive collection of ideas, structure and techniques to maximize your social selling efforts. It’s not theory, it’s real."

Matt Heinz

President of Heinz Marketing Inc.

"Jamie Shanks is social selling.  He’s poured his heart and soul into helping his clients succeed in building and converting sales on the social web, and I can’t believe he’s now basically giving it all away in this awesome book."

"Jamie Shanks is the only person I would endorse for Social Selling Mastery. This book is the manifestation of his years of work helping shape the industry.  "

Trish Bertuzzi

President of The Bridge Group, Inc.

"(Social Selling Mastery) takes all the pieces and parts of Social Selling and pulls them together in an easy to implement roadmap for success. "

Don Peppers

Marketing and Sales Futurist. Customer Experience Thought Leader. Best-Selling Author.

"If your heart is in sales, as mine is, then Shanks’ new book on social selling is something you must read... Social Selling Mastery is first and foremost a what-to and how-to book. It’s not a why-to book. If you have to be persuaded why using modern technology and online social networks makes sense as a sales practice, then don’t bother buying this book; put your money away and save it for when you’ll need it, likely to be soon after the next round of cuts."
