  • 10. BEST PRACTICES (Relevant & Interesting) Content is King Many companies are missing the mark when it comes to providing the right content, Since most business-to- business is direct sales and long cycle, but focused on a long-term relationship, Most companies spend too much time developing content around sales support and not nearly enough creative brain power in finding new ways to delight existing customers. If you think about it, what's more compelling to a potential customer than to come to your site and see how well you treat your current customers?“ - Dana Todd, CMO of Newsforce Inc. and chairwoman of Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization' (SEMPO') Rich Media & Interactions In terms of content the experts suggest using video, interactive tools, blogs and widget-generated microsites to give customers and prospects more information about what they are looking for. One of the easiest ways to do so is using video or Flash-based interactive content . Considering how content affects SEO Marketers must also consider how search engine marketing affects site design and navigation. Because most b-to-b research starts on a search engine, many of the people who come to your site may never see its front page: "Every page should function like a home page. Your site must be also optimized for search, which means it's key to use text rather than all Flash or images. Plus, keep password-protected areas that can't be indexed by search engines to a minimum. B2B Online: Top 10 B2B Web Sites 2008 (Sept. 2008)

LEVER'S CMO THROWS DOWN SOCIAL-MEDIA GAUNTLET * No matter how big your advertising spending, small groups of consumers on a tiny budget might hijack the conversation. marketers who do not recognize this -- and adapt their marketing -- are in grave peril.

  • 25. FIVE NEW RULES FOR MARKETERS HOW SIMON SAYS THE RULES HAVE CHANGED: 1. Listening to consumers is more important than talking at them. Let your customers know you hear them - they’re not morons, theyre the ones defining your brand. 2. You cant hide the corporation behind the brand anymore (or vice versa.) Welcome to radical transparency, where bad corporate behavior will damage your brands, and vice versa. 3. PR is a primary concern for every CMO and brand manager. If marketing and PR”are not the same department, tear down the wall. 4. Cause marketing isnt about philanthropy, its about enlightened self-interest,” Dont be ashamed of your profit motive, - great branding and doing good are increasingly one and the same. 5. Social media is not a strategy. You need to understand it, and youll need to deploy it as a tactic. But remember that the social context just makes it even more important that you have a good product.
  • 26. VIRAL MARKETING EVOLVED: BEYOND MAIL-A-FRIEND Rise of social media Nowadays, most successful Viral campaigns send videos to YouTube, create Facebook pages or organize communities on MySpace -- or all of the above. These sites are free to use and add seemingly unlimited viral potential to any campaign. Free additional exposure from powerful peer-to-peer networks. Marketers are hearing the social media message loud and clear. Peer-to-peer sharing is critical Two distinct groups: fantastically thought-out campaigns and wacky content. Either way, success hinges on peer-to-peer sharing. Both strategies can work if enough effort is put into the right places. Clever marketers created funny videos or text documents, posted them to a few social media sites and people shared like mad -- ka-boom! Other marketers left less at risk. They created contests, microsites, full-assault ad campaigns and got on every Web 2.0 medium reachable. All hail mighty content We all know the adage but all it takes for some campaigns to go wildly viral is great content.. Most of the content being passed around was funny or sarcastic -- even if it was a bit risky for PR. But being truly funny requires risks. Some sucessful marketers went out on a limb to grab the ripest fruit. MarketingSherpa’s Viral Marketing Hall of Fame 2008 (June 2008)
