Getting Social in B2B Tech Marketing
When leveraged correctly, social media can play an integral role in B2B tech marketing. Unfortunately, most public relations agencies that specialize in B2B tech don’t know how to effectively use social media platforms to the advantage of their clients.
Social channels are often placed into a bucket and are never utilized for their full potential. While many tech marketers allow social channels to simmer on the backburner, consumers are actively using social in a variety of ways. Because of this, tech marketing should approach each social channels from a fresh perspective:
- Blogs – The company blog is often the foundation of an organization’s social strategy. You can’t Tweet, post or share before you have the content to do so. The content developed for your blog helps to bolster your social media channels. Top-notch B2B tech marketing comes from frequent, compelling and insightful content that can help you to attract customers.
- LinkedIn – The best tech marketing strategies derive leads directly from social media. Setting up a company LinkedIn page allows you to connect with your key audience, many of whom might be potential customers. According to a study conducted by IDG Research, 45 percent of B2B tech marketers have successfully acquired a customer from LinkedIn. It also affords you the opportunity to establish yourself as a thought leader in your industry.
- Twitter – Since its inception, Twitter become a popular discussion forum for conversations about technology. Because of this, it’s important for any B2B tech marketing strategy to build a solid Twitter presence. In building that foundation and making a name in the Twitterverse, tech marketers should be tweeting multiple times a day about timely and relevant industry news, including research and new insights. That being said, it’s important to make sure your Tweets aren’t too self-promotional.
- Facebook – While many businesses take the initiative to create Facebook pages, this medium has remained largely personal, as opposed to some of the other business-focused platforms. Facebook does reach a large and broad audience. While it shouldn’t be at the top of your tech marketing strategy, your brand should still have a Facebook presence and share links to your company blog, events and any major announcements.
