10 Essential Tips For B2B Marketing Success

The use of the Internet for marketing purposes may have long been essential for small to medium-sized B2B firms, but many of them still struggle to find the most effective mix of techniques.

By following our essential B2B marketing tips, you will able to market your organisation so that your products or services are seen and heard by many more potential prospects.

1. Understand SEO

Ensuring that your website is found through search engines requires you to invest in high-quality content and follow a consistent content strategy that will bring genuine value to readers.

2. Make your website count

 B2B firms require a good quality website just as urgently as their B2C counterparts do. Working with a web development company and building a site that speaks to your target audience and quickly answers their pain points is an essential part of B2B marketing.

3. Focus on content 

When it comes to building and growing an audience, producing regular content – whether it takes the form of blogging, infographics or video, to name just some possibilities – will allow you to communicate information to your prospects in the most compelling ways.

4. Listen to your competitors 

Using social media and analysing competitor sites could be vital for getting one step ahead. Not only can you save time and resources by following a well-oiled strategy, but you can also gain insight into your rivals’ weaknesses and market your own organisation accordingly.

5. Build an audience 

You can build commitment and engagement by encouraging your existing customers to stay in touch. Make your social media links a prominent part of your site, add a mailing list and create rich content through such formats as ebooks to encourage visitors to click ‘subscribe’.

6. Engage with your prospects

 One-to-one marketing should not be exclusively reserved for B2C businesses, and nor can attractive prospects necessarily only be contacted via phone or email, so you shouldn’t be afraid to directly engage with your targets across social media, in online forums and on your site.

7. Converting followers into solid leads

 Running social media promotions and regularly engaging in one-to-one interactions will help to move followers through the funnel and convert them into loyal clients or partners.

8. Reusing content

 Reusing or ‘upcycling’ your old content is a cost-effective way to enhance your marketing campaigns. Recap your articles in a new format, expand content into whitepapers or syndicate content to industry experts or publications and watch your leads grow.

9. Pay for advertisements

 By spending as little as a couple of pounds a day, you can target your content and website to the right audience using platforms such as Google AdWords or Facebook Adverts. Narrowly focus your target audience and write compelling, engaging copy to yield long-lasting results.

10. Be consistent

For both online and offline marketing campaigns, consistency is key. Focus on your brand, establish clear tone and style principles and follow through on your convictions to be rewarded.

Although competing in the digital world can be challenging, there are ways in which both large and small B2B organisations can make a big impact.  If you would like Futura to help point you in the right direction, please don’t hesitate to get in touch today.
