HUDSON, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 22, 2013) -  The Bridge Group, Inc., an inside sales consulting & implementation firm, today released the ebook "The Fundamentals of LinkedIn for Sales Reps."

"I'm often asked 'What separates the most effective Sales Reps on LinkedIn from the rest?'," said Janet Stucchi, Inside Sales Consultant at The Bridge Group, Inc., "It really comes down to four things. The best social prospectors:

  • Gear their profiles towards their buyers, their market & the value they bring
  • Make growing their LinkedIn network a priority
  • Are plugged into the LinkedIn Groups where their prospects participate
  • Are just plain better at searching LinkedIn"

"For those sales reps who already have a LinkedIn presence (and that should be all of you), I encourage you to take another look at your profile and use our framework to enhance it," said Lynn Hidy, Founder of UpYourTeleSales, "Build out your connections, leverage groups and search like a pro to maximize your Social Prospecting™ efforts."
