Creating an exciting marketing campaign for a B2B business is difficult. Unlike B2C companies, B2B businesses may have trouble engaging with leads and prospects on an emotional level with their marketing content. After all, it’s much easier to get excited about B2C products like clothing or candy than the more esoteric services B2B companies usually provide. Nevertheless, B2B businesses can and do find success through digital marketing all the time. In fact, here’s how you can build a dynamic online brand for your B2B operation:
Use Appealing Visuals
Most of the time, consumers only skim social-media posts and few take the time to read in-depth content. As such, it’s a smart ploy for all businesses (not just B2B ones) to create an eye-catching logo for their brand. Note, it’s vital that the logo you choose fits within your overall business ethos. Picking a logo that draws attention for all the wrong reasons isn’t going to help you generate more sales.
Tell a Story
Some companies are “lucky” in the fact that they boast a product or service that no competitor can match. However, the truth is very little usually separates one B2B company from a direct competitor. Instead of trying to make your product or service seem unique (when it really isn’t), focus instead on telling your personal story. Integrating your personal brand with your professional interest can help build trust with leads and put a face to your company. Remember, anything you can do to “humanize” your marketing efforts is always a good thing.
Give Expert Advice
Very few professionals are willing to tell their clients how they solve problems. Ostensibly, business owners fear that if they divulge how they perform their services, clients will abandon them and do the work themselves. This is an irrational fear. Note that successful B2B companies write lots of content that describes the nuances of their work. Trust us, no one is going to install a pharmacy point of sale service on their own because they read a blog about it. There’s no risk in letting your clients see behind the curtain, so to speak. There is, however, great benefit to establishing trust with your consumer base through detailed content.
The Bottom Line
At the end of the day, brands, products, and services aren’t dynamic or exciting. People, by contrast, are. Therefore, always look for ways to highlight the human element in any content you create. Utilizing statistics, metrics, and reports can only take your business so far in terms of branding potential, so don’t rely on them inordinately!
