3 Ways to Boost B2B Sales Through LinkedIn Social Selling

DW Blog
June 13th, 2016

With social media growing rampantly, it has evolved into an effective channel for the sales team. You may be surprised that deals could be clinched through the use of LinkedIn too.

Here are five strategies sales representatives can consider implementing to drive revenue:

1. Add Prospective Customers and Share Their Content with Your Network

Make an effort to connect with your leads! When you have access to content they like, sharing them would mean having a strong conversation with them. This becomes crucial if you lead publishes original content as sharing would indicates your support. Remember though, when you invite your prospect, always send them a tailored request to connect. Selling is way better received when it feels like a 1-to-1 relationship, rather than a blanket message to all people. As social selling magnate Nancy Nardin would say, “Social is personal!”

When you start connecting with prospects, their activity will show up on your feed and it would eventually lead you to another opportunity.

2. Warm Introductions

Proven to be more powerful than a customer invitation, LinkedIn automatically finds people who you and your prospect have in common. Through this, you can connect with more people whom you know mutually.

Eg: I would be the sales rep and Elaine would be the prospect I’m looking to reach. Once I see that Sharon is a joint connection, I could reach out to Sharon and ask her if she would be comfortable with giving me a warm introduction to connect with Elaine since they went to the same college. After this introduction, I can steer the ship—but this makes reaching Elaine much easier than coming in cold.

3. Arrange a Meet Up

Upon building a connection and extending a warm introduction, it becomes an opportunity to organise a meet up session to establish a personal connection with the individual. Every new person you meet would mean additional potential clients too. By organizing one, it’d also indicate your interest in getting to know someone better on a personal level instead of

Corporate Logos That Contain Subliminal Messaging

DW Blog
May 18th, 2016

Some of you may be unaware that a brand’s logo speaks to its viewers on many levels.

The presentation of the logo is essential as it creates an identity for the brand. A main concern that brands have would be the running of risk of logos being glanced over without conveying it’s brand’s message. This could occur if a logo is too complex or appears to be unrelated to its brand.

With that said, modern logos are now swayed towards bold, simplistic and futuristic designs. A closer look of some logos may reveal subtle marketing tactics.

1. FedEx — Can you find the hidden arrow within its negative space? This award winning logo portrays thoughts of forward, speedy and precise motion. As FedEx is a courier company, forwardness is crucial in their field and the arrow  brings across this notion.

2. LG — Some think the LG logo is a Pac-Man reference (requires a bit of imagination). The smiling, winking face is more apparent (but only slightly). What do you think?

3. Tostitos — It’s design identifies feeling of togetherness while sharing chips and salsa, bringing groups of people closer through the pleasure of food.

Amazon — A rather interesting and meaningful logo, with the arrow pointing from a to z – refers to being able to find anything on its website. With different vendors selling a myriad of items, consumers can shop with a wide variety through their website. We believe that they wanted to enforce customer satisfaction, hence the smile across (with a dimple).

5. NBC — Spot the peacock subtly featured in their vibrant logo. In 1956, the colourful feathers was birthed because they had just introduced new-colour broadcast. This officially became NBC’s logo in  1979.

6. Baskin Robbins — Introduced in 2005,  they have cleverly made use of the company’s initials to advertise its 31 flavours of ice cream. With the use of bright colours, it conveys the fun and energy of the brand.

7. Vaio — This cool logo for Sony’s computers represents the brand’s integration of analog and digital technology. The ‘VA’ is designed as an analog waveform, the ‘IO’ is binary code.

8. Tour de France — The logo is slightly more abstract than the other examples, where you will be able to spot a well-integrated biker.

9. Coca-Cola — The soda brand’s campaign in Denmark points out something you may have missed; the Danish flag (with a bulge) embedded in the white script.

10. Toblerone – Started in a city famously associated with bears; Bern Switzerland, there’s a dancing bear in the midst of the mountain print.

Sia Global Logo

Sia Global, our new client tasked us to create their new corporate logo. Design Workz is happy to accept and accomplished the challenge.

Sia Global logo was created with a combination of a stylised “a” and “S” surrounded by an eclipse to denote growth and movement in their global industry. The colour selection of the bright green and grey blue gives a modern and fresh look.

A logo design that tells a story is unique to the company it represents and the industry that it evolves. Another principle of great logo design is “Keep It Simple” concept. Going through the logos of some of the most successful companies reveal this same principle, from footwear to automakers and fashion labels regardless of the industries. The simplistic design can be straight forward at times but a memorable one.

As we start year 2016, we wish Sia Global all the best.

Immigration Solutions Folder

Thank Immigration Solutions for choosing Design Workz again to create the folder design. It is one of our core values to work closely and communicate effectively with our clients when taking on a project. Creating a folder design is very important as it is handed to a specific audience. The look and feel of the folder is the first impression.

A presentable folder represent the image of your organisation. Creativity and uniqueness of the folders leave a lasting impression before the client or customers opens the folder. It is also a window to your organisation, sales information, proposals and other information. Like all marketing materials, you want to target a specific demographic. Touch and feel of the materials are important too. Using a high quality stock gives off a professional image. It will be touched and handled by it’s audience, you want it to be substantial and sturdy, not just a flimsy piece of paper. Your potential customers most likely took time to go through your materials before they make any decision and that’s why first impression counts. Make yourselves stand out and let the customers choose yours as first read.

Design Workz is happy to work with Immigration Solutions in this project and thank you for your continue support. We wish our client a wonderful year 2016 ahead.
