PeopleLinx Focuses on Social Selling, Achieves Record Q3 Sales, Speaks at Dreamforce Conference

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - October 28, 2014) - PeopleLinx announced today that it achieved record third quarter sales on the strength of its ability to make social selling easy for B2B sales professionals. The company's focus on social selling also landed it a coveted speaking slot at Salesforce.com's Dreamforce '14 conference.

PeopleLinx's strong financial performance in Q3 was driven by the acquisition of several industry-leading customers in financial services, healthcare, technology, and professional services.

The quarterly results underscore the growing role of social selling in the enterprise sales process, according to CEO Kevin O'Nell. "Social used to be a choice that sales leaders left up to the individual rep. Now sales leaders are integrating social into sales process and metrics," O'Nell said. "That moves social to the top of the leadership agenda."

PeopleLinx also achieved record renewal rates in Q3, including multi-year agreements with several enterprise clients. "PeopleLinx's renewal rates show that our customers view it as a must-have," O'Nell said.

"As an organization, we're committed to social," said Mark Waxman, Chief Marketing Officer of CBIZ. "PeopleLinx is core to our strategy because it integrates with our process and scales to our size."

Social's integration into the sales process was the central topic of the Dreamforce session, entitled "Social Selling Starts with CRM." The session took place October 13 in San Francisco and featured real-world insights on social selling from PwC (Canada), Qlik, CBIZ, and a major banking client, as well as the first public demonstration of PeopleLinx's new integration between social networks and customer relationship management (CRM) technology. PeopleLinx also sponsored and exhibited at the Dreamforce conference. They shared their secrets for a successful Dreamforce on the company's blog.
