Choosing The Right Social Sharing Options for B2B Content

April 15th, 2010 Posted by B2B Social Media 2 thoughts
B2B Social Media Sharing Strategies

There seem to be so many social media sharing options today at the bottom of blog posts, web pages and other content marketing assets. I’ve seen some blog posts that include as many as twenty different social sharing options at the end of the post. I’m afraid when there are that many choices, people will just glaze over and opt not to share the content. In my opinion, especially for B2B marketing, it is much better to have a few very focused choices. (more…)

Inbound Marketers Report a 60% Lower Cost Per Lead

February 16th, 2010 Posted by B2B Research 4 thoughts

Internet marketing technology provider Hubspot recently released a study entitled The 2010 State of Inbound Marketing. The study included 231 marketing professionals, 69% of whom worked for B2B companies in a wide variety of industries. The largest industries were professional services (22% of respondents) and technology (15%).

Inbound Marketing refers to marketing strategies and tactics designed to help companies get found when searching for potential product or service providers or when researching issues or problems. Think search engine optimization, paid search, and social media. Outbound Marketing refers to push-type marketing like trade shows, advertising, telemarketing, email marketing, etc. (more…)

The velocity with which B2B marketing has evolved over the past two years (let alone five years) is amazing. Frankly, it’s a challenge to keep up with it at times. I’m particularly grateful to all those who take the time to share their knowledge to help others.

Are You Making it Hard for People to Mention You in Tweets?

December 11th, 2009 Posted by B2B Social Media 1 thought

It’s a common practice on Twitter to mention the source of cited content, most often by including a “mention”, the inclusion of the person’s Twitter name, i.e., @twittername.

It’s a great thing to do. You get a chance to not only share great content, but to mention the author or contributor. Doing so potentially helps build the author’s Twitter following and let’s that person know you tweeted something that referenced her. (more…)

2009 Big List of B2B Marketing and Sales Blogs

August 28th, 2009 Posted by B2B Social Media 73 thoughts

With all the micro-blogging, I’ve often wondered whether the number of bloggers who actually create original, substantial content is decreasing. Don’t get me wrong, you can create meaningful thought in 140 characters, but it’s a lot easier to write 140 characters (no matter how well crafted) than it is to consistently create original content for a blog. And that ease may have driven many to abandon blogging or not even consider blogging when there is a relatively easy way to start “blogging” on Twitter.

It’s been more than two years since anyone had tried to pull together a list of B2B marketing and sales blogs. Jon Miller of Marketo did it in early 2007. When we reviewed that list, we found a lot of those blogs were no longer active.

So we went searching…

And we found some really great B2B blogs. More than 200 of them. Hats off to all who made the list! Thanks for your continuing contribution. (more…)
