Despite all the technology available, your ability to reach, engage, and influence marketing executives at leading brands and agencies is still limited. While buyer personas, surveys, and search marketing data can get you in the ballpark, we believe social media insights are now a “must-have” for understanding senior marketers in a way that becomes truly actionable.

Imagine if you could listen to the daily conversations of brand marketers and agency executives? How would you use what you heard to better reach, engage, and influence these marketing decision makers to take the actions you care most about?

For example, would it provide you insights into where to advertise, what content to create, who to build relationships with, and how best to develop and implement your social media strategy? Sure it would.

We created the B2B Social Marketing Report: Marketing Executives on Twitter to provide you with social media insights to help you make more informed decisions for reaching, engaging, and influencing marketing decision makers. Answers to the questions B2B marketers ask all the time, such as:

Which social networks should I invest time and effort in?
Is mobile something that I need to prioritize?
Which media publications should I advertise with?
What topics should I create content around?
Who should I get to speak at our events?

Armed with these social media insights, you can now take a more informed look at your strategy for reaching, engaging, and influencing marketing decision makers to take the actions you care most about.

  • Your Online Marketing and B2B Social Marketing Experts @Leadtail and @BestB2BSocial B2B Social Marketing Report: Marketing Executives on Twitter Reach, Engage, and Influence Marketing Decision Makers Q1 2013
  • Introduction Despite all the technology available, your ability to reach, engage, and influence marketing executives at leading brands and agencies is still limited. While buyer personas, surveys, and search marketing data can get you in the ballpark, we believe social media insights are now a “must-have” for understanding senior marketers in a way that becomes truly actionable. With this in mind, we developed the B2B Social Marketing Report: Marketing Executives on Twitter to provide social media insights into the patterns and behaviors of marketing decision makers. Using Leadtail’s B2B Social Marketing technology to analyze data from Twitter, this report reveals insights about marketing executives to help you answer questions such as: Leadtail Your Online Marketing and B2B Social Marketing Experts!2! }  Which social networks should you invest your time and effort in? }  Is mobile something that you should prioritize? }  Which media publications should you advertise with? }  What topics should you create content around? }  Who should you get to speak at your events? Armed with these social media insights, you can now take a more informed look at your strategy for reaching, engaging, and influencing marketing decision makers to take the actions you care most about.
  • Methodology and Data Set Leadtail Your Online Marketing and B2B Social Marketing Experts! The methodology the Leadtail team used in analyzing the data is as follows: 1.  Identify senior marketers active on social media based on criteria such as job function, seniority, type of company, etc., to create the target audience data set. 2.  Use the Leadtail B2B Social Marketing technology to extract insights around key activities, such as what links are shared, who is mentioned and retweeted, popular hashtags, popular platforms used to share content, etc. 3.  Review, analyze, and package these insights into periodic reports. The specific data set analyzed for this report was composed of: }  1,797 marketing executives (manager level and above) working in the areas of: Marketing, Media Planning/Buying, PR/Communications, and Social Media/Community. }  Based around the globe, but primarily concentrated in North America }  Working at B2C and B2B companies and agencies. }  Total of 407,192 tweets, and 185,948 shared links. }  Tweets published between January, 2013 – March 31, 2013. 3!
  • Key Takeaways }  Brand and agency marketers are active on many social networks - not just Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. }  Mobile is now an imperative for those wanting to reach and engage marketing executives. }  Senior marketers actively consume and share mainstream media, but industry specific media drives their daily social interactions.

For example, 10% of marketers in our sample posted at least 1 video from Vine, Twitter’s 6- second video app, making Vine more popular with senior marketers than media darlings Pinterest, Spotify, and Tumblr (at least for now!) % of Marketing Executives that shared between this network + Twitter during the report period

Apps & Tools 3% Social/User Generated Media 21% Industry Media 32% Mainstream Media 44% Mainstream media sites are the most commonly shared – but that doesn’t mean it’s all celebrity gossip and sports (though there is a fair amount of that… we’re human after all!) The vast majority of mainstream media content shared is business, technology, and media focused – typically covering broad industry issues and trends. Industry media plays an important role in defining the conversations marketers have with each other, their internal teams, and ultimately clients and customers. Many of these publications feature submissions from marketing and PR thought leaders and experts, and have robust email and social media distribution that keeps their content in front of senior marketers daily. User generated content includes everything from “of the moment” memes captured on Tumblr, to behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram, to YouTube videos featuring marketing guru Seth Godin, and everything in between. % of 100 Most Popular Shared Content Sources

  • Who Do Marketers Retweet the Most? Leadtail Your Online Marketing and B2B Social Marketing Experts!15! There is persistent myth in social media that content is retweeted because the reader likes it. While that is undoubtedly true some of the time, there is one less obvious but profound reason why people retweet. They think: “My followers will like this.” Whether it’s because it’s funny, timely, provocative, or topical - who gets retweeted is a reflection of what people believe their own audience will find relevant. The word cloud to the right shows the people that were retweeted the most amongst marketing executives in Q1 2013.

  • Which Brands Do Marketers Retweet Most? Leadtail Your Online Marketing and B2B Social Marketing Experts!17! It’s not just individual people who influence the conversation amongst senior marketers on Twitter. Perhaps more than any other group, marketers are open to (and at times, expect!) brands to engage them directly and participate in a two way dialog. And while marketers can be harsh when a brand gets it wrong, they are just as likely to amplify examples of social media done right by sharing examples with their own network via retweets. The word cloud to the right shows the brands that were retweeted the most amongst marketing executives in Q1 2013.
