As we were in the process of developing a new business strategy for our health and safety software and services company, particularly targeting additional overseas markets, we needed to think of more ways of contacting new customers for our growth objectives. I decided to attend the LinkedIn social selling programme with this in mind.

l learned several time-saving ways of targeting and connecting with the specific persons I needed to, and in the key sectors and territories to achieve my goals.Since being on the course, I’ve started to have real success building a quality network of new contacts in these sectors. I recommend the social selling course to learn these important LinkedIn strategies and tools for those who need to grow their organisations.

fergal smithThe Really Connect Ireland course I attended the Social Selling Programme in May 2014 and without doubt, the techniques that are taught are incredibly valuable and unique..I have been using LinkedIn for several years and I know first hand just how good a platform it is for marketing your business  What I did not know is that you can actually put some really useful techniques on auto pilot so that instead of having to search for leads, they are delivered to your inbox on a weekly basis!!!. The content and delivery were highly professional but more importantly the emphasis that we are all sitting on a very powerful tool in LinkedIn, that’s totally under utilized.

The Really Connect Ireland team have put a system of working together that is a must for any sales/marketing team or any individual that is serious about learning how to maximise LinkedIn in a systematic way to grow their business or contacts. I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone. This course is a must if you want to succeed in obtaining new clients.

I went on RCI’s LinkedIn Social Selling programme to learn how to use LinkedIn for raising awareness in our accountancy firm and for increasing our client base. I learned about goal- setting and then some relevational strategies and methods to reach out to future potential clients to achieve the goals.

Customer support is there during and after the courses to help with anything you’re not clear about from the course. The course met all our expectations and I recommend it to other businesses wanting to increase their sales revenue.

As a recent graduate, I didn’t have much experience in social selling for business development. The Really Connect Ireland course helped me understand the features LinkedIn provided and how I could utilize these for business development. The support during the course, and afterwards, was great and allowed me to follow up with any unanswered questions. The training provided also gave me the necessary skills that allowed me to help others in the business and also, to help them understand the importance of LinkedIn and its role in social selling. Following the course, I was able to put a multitude of knowledge into practice and have managed to develop professional relationships necessary for business development.

I would recommend the course to any business wanting to understand the area of social selling and how it will help grow sales revenue. Every business should be aware of the importance of a social presence and the connections made through LinkedIn can help your business on a worldwide platform

A colleague and I had training on LinkedIn with Really Connect Ireland and found it very informative and useful for professional networking.

Stuart Allcock gave excellent presentations on how to use the network for business purposes, particularly in sales. He provided all the support during the learning process and was eager to share his valuable experience with us.

Thanks to this training I have expanded my circles of contacts, which is a starting point in any sales job. LinkedIn is a great opportunity to connect with your potential clients and stay in touch with other professionals within the industry.
