What is Sales Navigator?

On average, social selling leaders see 45% more opportunities created and a 51% higher likelihood of achieving their sales quota. That’s some serious power at your fingertips!

What Makes Sales Navigator so Powerful?

The LinkedIn Sales Navigator provides a number of fantastic features to give you the ability to easily find and manage leads. Some of the most powerful features include:

  • Ability to Save Leads – You can keep track of any prospective buyers by saving them as a lead. This allows you to see any updates from the lead which is the perfect way to start engaging with them prior to reaching out. It’s also a great way to see what they are sharing so when you do speak with them you can break the ice with conversation that is relevant and important to them. Additionally, you’ll be able to easily view other insights like shared connections and job changes.
  • Lead Builder – The lead builder is a super advanced search, which will help you find and build a prospect list of leads. It comes with more expansive filters than the free LinkedIn account. You will even be able to save the leads directly from the search and once saved, you’ll be able to view their shared content right from your Sales Navigator homepage.
  • Chrome Extension – The Chrome extension also allows you to enhance the Gmail experience by connecting it with your LinkedIn profile. It will update information attached to specific emails and display insights inside your Gmail inbox. This is expected to become a feature in Outlook soon, as well.
  • Sales Navigator App – The app provides the ability to take it all mobile. It will provide recommended leads for you to see and save on your phone or tablet.
  • Mining Connections – Another huge feature of Sales Navigator is mining connections. While you can do this without a Sales Navigator account, it’s not the same. Filtering inside Sales Navigator allows you to identify your clients and leverage those relationships for warm introductions to others they know.

There are several other very powerful features that LinkedIn Sales Navigator allows you to leverage.
