Executive Summary

Business marketers have always advertised in specialized media such as trade magazines, but their audiences have traditionally been too narrow to use television, radio, and similar mass outlets. This limitation has carried over into the digital world, where business marketers could target ads on search terms and industry Web sites but not buy display ads that reach broad audiences. This has become an increasing problem as buyers do more research anonymously on the Web, making them harder to identify and nurture. Tools such as content marketing and social media have filled some of the gap by offering alternative methods of acquiring new names. But those methods are labor and content- intensive, making them difficult to scale. As a result, business marketers have longingly eyed the “insert coin here” efficiency that lets consumer advertisers reliably increase results by raising their display ad spend.

Happily, new methods have now made online display advertising a more effective, higher volume option for business marketers. Improved audience targeting expands the number of prospects marketers can reach and how frequently they can be contacted. Business marketers must learn a few new tricks to take advantage of this opportunity. But in return they gain a greater control over the flow of new names and more precise targeting of the messages for each individual. This Guide will ease your entry to the new world of effective B2B display advertising. Let the journey begin.

B2B Display Advertising By David Raab, Raab Associates June 2014 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Business marketers have always advertised in specialized media such as trade magazines, but their audiences have traditionally been too narrow to use television, radio, and similar mass outlets. This limitation has carried over into the digital world, where business marketers could target ads on search terms and industry Web sites but not buy display ads that reach broad audiences. This has become an increasing problem as buyers do more research anonymously on the Web, making them harder to identify and nurture. Tools such as content marketing and social media have filled some of the gap by offering alternative methods of acquiring new names. But those methods are labor and content- intensive, making them difficult to scale. As a result, business marketers have longingly eyed the “insert coin here” efficiency that lets consumer advertisers reliably increase results by raising their display ad spend. Happily, new methods have now made online display advertising a more effective, higher volume option for business marketers. Improved audience targeting expands the number of prospects marketers can reach and how frequently they can be contacted. Business marketers must learn a few new tricks to take advantage of this opportunity.

DISPLAY ADVERTISING BASIC Web display advertising includes any kind of advertising presented on a Web site other than a search engine. (Search advertising, such as Google AdWords, is different enough that it’s best treated as a separate topic. Search advertising is much simpler to manage than display advertising, so most business marketers are already familiar with how to use it.) ABOUT THE RESEARCH ANALYST With an MBA from Harvard, David is an expert in both B2B & B2C marketing strategy & technology. He has advised The Gap, JC Penney, Lowe's, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Williams-Sonoma, Scholastic, Unisys, Sprint and Verizon Wireless. He also publishes the Raab Guide to Demand Generation Systems and the Marketing Performance Measurement Tool-Kit. To read the rest of this How-To Guide, become a Demand Metric member today!
