10 Inspiring Social Selling Gurus
That You Must Follow

Social selling is the art of engaging with prospects on social media, answering questions and (re)sharing valuable content. But since so many people are doing it, how do you choose who to follow in order to be up to date and find good tips for your business? We can help.
To begin with, let's define what we understand by social selling gurus.

Social selling guru (n.)

- A person who uses social "currency" to build their brand and interacts with prospects by engaging in conversations and nurturing relationships.

What these people have in common is that, apart from the services they provide, they post valuable free content online in order to build rapport. Now that the definition's out of the way, we want to share with you who inspires us to hustle, gives us new perspectives and ideas for our business. Why? Because everyone needs some motivation every once in a while and we draw inspiration from the pros.
