What You Will Learn In This Episode About Selling on Social Media: 


  • You have to change your selling mindset. You can’t think of it as selling. (2:00)
  • People rely on experts. Therefore, people NEED your expertise. So don’t be ashamed or afraid to offer it. (2:20)
  • How you can let someone else do the selling work for you. (5:50)
  • How you can use storytelling when selling on social media to motivate people to press “buy”. (9:00)
  • Why you should keep track of commonly asked questions that you receive. (10:40)


Even after practicing selling for a while, Brock admits that every once in a while he has the tendency to slip into a “salesy” voice when selling on social media. Sometimes, it’s easy to accidentally sound like your reading a script. But don’t let that set you back. The more you practice, the more you’ll develop your voice and build confidence. You can use Brock’s tips and strategies, and hopefully, you won’t have to do all the selling on your own either!
