How Social Media Can Help Your B2B Marketing 

Social media is a great way to reach out to a large audience, and it can help you to build a community around your company. Social media marketing can be anything from a blog post to an article to an infographic. 

But, social media marketing can do so much more for your company. It can increase brand awareness, generate leads, and grow your business. It can also help you to create a sense of urgency for your business, create a brand identity for your company and make it more memorable. Social media can help you to be more interactive with your audience; post polls, ask questions, and spread the word about your brand and get ahead of your competitors. Above all, social media can help you build trust with your audience. You might be wondering, “How can I use social media for B2B marketing?” There is no one-size-fits-all answer, but first, find your strategy. 

How To Promote B2B with Social Media

The challenge for B2B companies is that social media is primarily used among consumers, so you need to create a great marketing strategy.

  1. Which social media channels are you focusing on? Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Google+ are some of the best. You can promote your company through social media by creating a blog, or a Facebook page, or a Twitter handle.  
  2. How much time do you want to spend on each channel and what type of content will you post? Are you focusing on informative, short Instagram posts, LinkedIn articles or concise tweets?  
  3. What type of social media marketing are you doing? Paid marketing, owned media or earned media? Paid marketing is paid-for ads that will be seen by many. Owned media is used when you want to promote a particular message. Earned media is a strategy used when you have no marketing budget but need media attention. 
  4. Who is your target audience? What are their demographics? How do they use social media? How can they benefit from your product and services? 
  5. What is your competition doing? Try to figure out what makes you stand out from your competition and how you can show that with your social media marketing. 

How to analyse Your Social Media Marketing

Social media marketing is not just about posting; you need to analyse your posts and identify posts that will have a high chance of success and engagement. You can do this with Google Analytics to discover who is engaging with your content. Who is liking, sharing and commenting on your posts? What is your click-through rate? This will help you to discover what posts work and which ones don’t, so you can reach more audiences with each post. These metrics are things like the click-through rate, the cost per click, and the conversion rate.
