Leveraging social media doesn’t mean reinventing the wheel, instead, it’s yet a powerful tool in making the businesses profitable with improved leads and conversion. The sales person is often found scrolling the social media platforms and stalking the LinkedIn groups to achieve the ultimate goal that’s getting the product or services to the right audience.

Social channels open up the myriad of the options, aids in increasing customer outreach and contributes to the organization’s growth with improved sales.

According to a research, “Weaving social media DNA into the sales process increases the sales outcome by 23% as opposed to traditional sales.”

It implies mastering social creates great opportunities on which businesses can capitalize, and grow by leaps and bounds. Let’s shed some light on a few reasons that illustrate why social media has become the next big thing for sales:

1)      Find your target audience

Social media is the best place where the people of different demographics, region, and background can be easily identified. The prospect intelligence aids in profiling, which eases targeting the audience.

Sales representatives can not just find out the customer base, while they can also garner more information about them, which gives a leg up in bringing quality leads.

2)      Target them like never before

Billions of users are using various social platforms, and there finding the right audience is a hard nut to crack for the salespeople. With the advancement of the technology, the targeting options for social media have also evolved.

For instance: Facebook allows the sales rep to segment the target audience based on geography, gender, age, location, and interest so that the prospects to target get zero down to a few hundred. The paid advertising is also run to gain potential leads.

3)      Nurture the relationship with them

The prospects are easily accessible on social channels, which offers a golden opportunity for the sales reps by opening a line of communication between them and prospects. The interaction with the audience is an ideal tool that not only creates a relationship with the customers, while strengthening the bond with them.

The interaction can be held on any topic of their interest or current issues. Additionally, feedback from the customer and answering the existing customers’ questions about their offerings make the relationship better.

Don’t consider social to just reach the audience, but leverage it to engage the audience.

4)      Increase your reach with real-time marketing

When you reached the right audience and crafted a strong bond with them, it’s necessary to keep up with the audience and changing trends.

With social media, the prospects can be approached instantly, and when the relevant post is shared in a few minutes of the latest happening, the brand gains the public recognition. The real-time marketing increases the brand awareness which in turn boosts sales.

5)      Uplift the lead generation

The posts shared on social platforms become a medium to interact with the existing and new prospects. The reaction of the prospects not only helps salespeople in building a following and enhancing access to the new customers, while increase website visit, click through rates and pretty more.

The reaction of the audience upsurge the traffic to the website and consequently social media becomes a lead generating machine.  

6)      Bring more leads down the sales funnel

The lead conversion is the ultimate goal of every sales rep where social media help them a ton. The social channels humanize the brand by interacting with the audience the way they like. The humanization builds the credibility and improves the trust in the brand, which in turn fuel up the conversion rate.

The studies have shown that lead conversion ratio through social media marketing is comparatively higher than outbound marketing.

Besides, social media provides great customer insights which make leads qualification easier and the critical information about potential leads enable the sales rep to craft their sales pitch accordingly that accelerates the conversion.

Takeaway

The Social Media Examiner study states that more than half of marketers who've been using social media have observed improvement in the sales.

It signals social media is a key to grow the sales. It is the best platform to maximize the access to the potential customers and encourage them to buy services or products. With Social Media Mobile App development or social media page creation, the sales representatives can better drive the customers to the website and generate sales with increased conversions.

Getting social is a next-Gen trend, which must be put into the sales equation.

      Hey, so i've created a disk in unity (2D mobile) that will be shot forward if you drag it back and the further you drag it from the start point the more force will be applied to the impulse similar to the 8ball pool drag to shoot mechanic on miniclip. However, when I applied a script that allows the main camera to follow the ball it broke the mechanic since the balls position is calculated through the camera in world space. So I created a bool that locks the camera in place until the ball is released so the calculation would happen before the camera starts to move. This works however the ball now rubber bands back and forwards close to the start position.
       
      If anything needs more explaining then i'd be glad to do so. I've only been coding for about a week so you'll have to bare with me. Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much.
       
      Here's What happens:

      Here is the shoot script:
      using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using UnityEngine; public class Shoot : MonoBehaviour { [SerializeField] GameObject Disc; [SerializeField] float multiplier; Vector3 initPos; private Rigidbody2D rb; public static bool ballIsReleased = false; bool recordingDistanceDragged = false; private void Start() { rb = gameObject.GetComponent<Rigidbody2D>(); initPos = transform.position; } void OnMouseDrag() { recordingDistanceDragged = true; if(recordingDistanceDragged == true) { transform.position = Camera.main.ScreenToWorldPoint(new Vector3(Input.mousePosition.x, Input.mousePosition.y, 10)); } else { transform.position = initPos; } } void OnMouseUp() { ballIsReleased = true; } private void FixedUpdate() { if(ballIsReleased == true) { rb.AddForce((initPos - transform.position) * multiplier, ForceMode2D.Impulse); Debug.Log("ball is released"); recordingDistanceDragged = false; } else { ballIsReleased = false; } } }  
      Here is the camera follow script:
      using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using UnityEngine; public class CameraFollow : MonoBehaviour { private Vector2 velocity; public float smoothTimeY; public float smoothTimeX; public GameObject player; private void Start() { player = GameObject.FindGameObjectWithTag("Player"); } private void FixedUpdate() { if (Shoot.ballIsReleased == true) { Debug.Log("camera can move"); float posX = Mathf.SmoothDamp(transform.position.x, player.transform.position.x, ref velocity.x, smoothTimeX); float posY = Mathf.SmoothDamp(transform.position.y, player.transform.position.y, ref velocity.y, smoothTimeY); transform.position = new Vector3(posX, posY, transform.position.z); } } }

      Game developers work extremely hard to get their titles in front of gamers but what more can PC resellers do to help developers grow? See what answer Intel® has and how they plan on expanding your game's reach.

      Game developers work hard to get their titles in front of gamers, immediately upon release. A new title generally commands its full retail price during the first few months, but promotional sales are a common practice to increase sales and players once a title has been in the market for a while.  
      Reaching More Gamers, Sooner
      Media sites such as IGN, Metacritic, Slate, FANDOM, GAMESBEAT, Engadget, YouTube, Twitch.tv and PCMag.com help get the word out about new titles through news, reviews, events and influencer opinions. Many game developers also have promotional relationships (some exclusive) with major platform players like Intel, nVIDIA, Sony (PlayStation), Microsoft (Xbox), and PC OEMs.  
      Intel offers Starter Packs through PC OEMs to get titles in front of gamers.  Consumers may get a “pack” of select titles and downloadable content with the purchase of a qualifying system. We’ve run that program for five years, and we expect millions of bundles to be sold in 2017, supporting hundreds of PC resellers and retailers, worldwide. Can you imagine the number of gamers we reach? In addition, Intel® Extreme Masters eSports tournaments and expanding global and regional gaming events help more gamers hear about and experience new titles.

      The mobile editor for Voxyc, a voxel-focused open-source game engine in development, can now edit 3D scenes on Android. Right in the app, you can create voxel chunks and combine them with models and sprites. You can import files right from the menu and then assign textures, move and resize them with a few button presses. All imported objects can be animated with Lua scripts. The resulting scenes can be used in games created with Voxyc, but since the project is open-source, export to other formats and engines can be and are expected to be developed.
      The app is one of the first that allows level creation on the go. You can work wherever inspiration strikes. Any dull moment can now be used productively, which is important for small indie teams that lack resources or work after-hours or on weekends. Using your device's camera to make textures and inserting them right into the scene is also convenient. The app is aimed at people who work on games independently and, perhaps after having already spent hours at their desk job, do not wish to be tied down to a chair and monitor. I find that using the app on a tablet is most convenient.
      Although the engine and the editor have come a long way in the last year, at this time, I am the only developer on the project. The editor and the engine are still missing some essential features, and I am looking for developers with whom I can share code. The codebase is cross-platform C++ and target platforms are Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, OpenVR, GearVR, Daydream and others.
