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 Chances are you have been following ineffective and outdated social media tactics.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.
Even though LinkedIn is a huge platform for B2B small businesses and startups to boost outreach and gain qualified leads, it’s actually easier said than done. With intense competition among companies to entice prospects, how do you stand out and market yourself differently to wield the competitive edge? What if you don’t have a huge budget for LinkedIn marketing and you’re unable to go out with all guns blazing?

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.
With a mind-boggling 500,000,000 tweets per day, Twitter has evolved into a must-have tool for B2B marketers. An upward movement in Twitter’s advertising revenue per 1000 timeline views indicates B2B marketers are constantly turning to Twitter for their lead generation campaigns.
A couple of decades ago, gathering data meant sending out a small army with questionnaires that haunted public places where you could find your target market. Now, data is literally on your fingertips.
Gone are the days when Twitter used to be a micro-blogging platform where many would simply air their thoughts. From 5,000 tweets per day in 2007 to a staggering 500,000,000 tweets per day, Twitter has morphed into a mammoth brand-building platform for both consumers and B2B marketers today. Unsurprisingly, as per research by BrandWatch, Twitter is the top social platform for B2B brand mentions with 73% of them happening on the site.
Influencer marketing is a type of marketing which focuses on a few key social media influencers rather than a group of consumers. While traditional marketing is more about creating promotional campaigns in order to influence consumers and their decision-making process, influencer marketing offers a competitive edge since it gives credence to your products/services.
