Digital Persuasion: Sell Smarter in the Modern Marketplace

Presented by: Erin Gargan,

3:20 PM - 4:20 PM @ Regal Cinema
Category: Keynote,

When you type, text or tweet, how persuasive are you? With 98% of digital outreach being ignored or deleted, your ability to influence others-from behind the screen- is your biggest indicator of sales success in the modern marketplace. Forget firm handshakes and eye contact- first impressions in the 21st century are dependent on your digital persuasion prowess. Are you able to entice someone to give you a chance- using just your keyboard? It used to be that you had 7 seconds to make a first impression. Today, you have about 2 seconds- or however long it takes for that potential customer, client or partner to scan the first few words of their mobile notification to decide if you are an “ignore” or “engage”.
