  • The first forms of social media have been seen since the late 1970’s (Bennett). The first corporate integration was when LinkedIn was created in 2003 which remains the world’s largest corporate networking site (Bennett). In 2010, it was revealed that social networking sites collected user data and gave that data to 3rd party companies and for use in advertising (Bennett). With 89% of US B2B companies using social media marketing, it seems like we can’t afford not to dabble in social media (“B2B Social…”).
  • There have been some unique B2B social media tactics. AT&T wanted to strengthen their B2B client relationships by creating a blog, and then using their employees to promote it on their own personal social media profiles to draw people into the blog (“B2B Social…”). Because of this unique use of B2B social media, AT&T traffic to their blog went up by 50% in 5 months and their social shares doubled (“B2B Social…”).
  • Both UPS and GE Healthcare use social media to strengthen their client relationships by educating with videos and blogs (“B2B Social…”).
  • This is what our competition and clients are using and more than likely what we should be using.
  • The black shows how many leads B2B marketers generate using the following sites. LinkedIn is shown to be the most effective at generating B2B leads (B2B Social…”).
  • This graph shows the social media sites that generate the most return on investment for B2B marketers. Again, LinkedIn is shown to be the most effective for B2B marketers (“B2B Social…”).
  • We can base our social media budget expectations off of this graph. Other than none, the most common percentage of budget allocation include 1%, and 5-10% of the B2B company’s budget (“B2B Social…”).
  • The basics would be creating a presence using the following most effective B2B social media sites.
