TRANSFORMING ORGANIZATIONS INTO SOCIAL SELLING POWERHOUSES SINCE 2016.
Authentic Social specializes in working with B2B sales orgs and law firms (additional experience with D2C brands and across a myriad of industries). We create winning social selling strategies and address the root cause of sales dysfunctions, starting with each organization’s approach to digital and physical conversations - both with current clients and prospects. Organizations cannot automate their way out of a fundamental sales organization dysfunction. Through the Authentic Social™ method, we help your organization create an effective social selling strategy: fixing pipeline / lead issues, addressing reputation management concerns, effectively training team members, and creating authentic connections with customers and prospects.
Caity founded Authentic Social in 2016 while writing her Harvard Sociology honors thesis, "Virtual Impressions: The Effect of Digital Communication on Millennial Social Interaction". The thesis centered around virtual impressions and how they affect interpersonal relationships. Prior to pursuing Authentic Social full time, Caity was also the top sales development representative at LinkedIn during her time there in 2016-2017.
Caity is a 2021 Forbes Next 1000 Honoree (first class of 250) - Forbes award for top self-funded companies in United States. She is passionate about her ongoing sociological research, especially regarding conversation in the digital age, generations, and personal + professional relationships.
This research is leveraged to both continually improve and add to Authentic Social's processes, as well as to share with a broader audience. Caity started Authentic Social SIPS & SUPPER in early 2022 to further pursue these interests. In her free time, Caity enjoys photography and museums (she is a member of The Metropolitan Museum's Apollo Circle and the Museum of Modern Art's Junior Associates). She is also involved in advocacy work centering around gun safety as a public health issue.
WHAT IS SOCIAL SELLING?

Relying mostly on cold calling, "smile and dial" method
Diving right into the pitch
Paying a random “sales / marketing guru” for one day or short term sales training, marketing help, or appointment setting and thinking it’ll solve the issue
Success in sales
Personalized messaging at scale with intention
Ongoing relationship building
Authentic Social designing your effective social selling infrastructure (which helps with social media, sales, marketing, reputation management, and more)
