Employee Advocacy - Your Ultimate Guide to Creating an Army of Best Salespeople

It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about complex SaaS solutions for invoicing and book-keeping, backend solutions for e-commerce sellers, or top-quality cat and dog food, in both B2C and B2B, people are swamped with promotional messages:

  • Youtube videos are an endless stream of 15-second bits interrupted by ads,

  • Social media platforms are a carousel of promotional posts and copywriting gimmicks,

  • Even Google searches are an exercise in scrolling past paid placements.

The problem with all of this is that consumers don’t believe any of it anymore.

Everyone’s in on the fact that brand messages and ads are transactional — it’s the company saying, “we’re showing/telling you this because we want you to buy something from us.”

Naturally, people are resistant to that.

Nearly two-thirds of consumers don’t trust most of the brands they do business with1.

However, they do trust other people, especially those whom they view as their peers:

 

That’s where employee advocacy comes in!

Employee advocacy is defined as the promotion of an organization — its brand, its products, and services — by its employees.

Thanks to social media platforms, it’s especially important today when employees are connected to more people than ever.
