Microsoft Dynamics 365 Social Selling Assistant: Finding Content to Share on Social Media



Microsoft recently released a new app for Dynamics 365 (formerly Dynamics CRM) called Social Selling Assistant, to help sales and marketing professionals find and share content on social media.  The product is a free download from Microsoft Appsource and installs in your instance of Dynamics 365 Sales.



Once you install Social Selling Assistant,  you configure your social media accounts and then search for content to share.  By consistently sharing content in your industry, you can build your following by attracting new followers as well as keep your followers engaged with fresh content.

I have not used the system long enough to determine the quality of the content or compare it to the results I would achieve using a search engine to find interesting news.  The advantage over posting manually is to have all your social outlets connected to simplify posting.

Microsoft Social Selling Assistant adjusts search results based on which articles you choose and reject over time.

Other products such as Buzzsumo, Klout and Hootsuite offer similar capabilities in free or paid versions, so Microsoft is entering a crowded marketplace.  For Microsoft Dynamics 365 users, having content sharing inside their Office 365 experience will be an advantage.
