Social media is something that has been a part of our daily lives. From Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, we use social media as a part of our daily activities. But whether or not we can use social media to drive leads towards our business is a different story.
The B2B social media marketing industry has been growing exponentially over the past few years. As per a study by Content Marketing Institute, as many as 93% of B2B companies embrace social media marketing as a potential tactic to generate leads and build positive narratives around their brand and products. In fact, 54% of B2B companies said they successfully generated leads from their social media campaigns. However, there are still many B2B companies that are unable to see any impressive ROI from their social media efforts. Are you one of them? Chances are you have been following ineffective and outdated social media tactics. It’s time to learn from your mistakes and start anew.
Social media tools, especially Twitter, provide a powerful channel for B2B marketing to generate leads, boost ROI and connect with customers. From Brand Watch to Social Media Today, every social media influencer highly recommends leveraging the micro-blogging platform to drive your B2B marketing campaign. In fact, Nielsen’s new 2016 Social Media Report has found that consumers are now spending 5.5 hours each week on social media, becoming savvier than ever. It says social media is the new megaphone for consumers whom businesses must take “very seriously” or risk damaging their hard-earned repute.
