  • Although we are a manufacturing training company, we use our twitter to find and tweet manufacturing, maintenance and industrial engineering jobs as soon as they appear anywhere on the internet, giving our followers first shot at new openings. Just as a favor to our followers, as we are not recruiters, we sale training. We also give away thousands in free training via our social media presence which we maintain all major social media platforms. So the bottom of BIN95.com home page might be a good future example for you of a manufacturing related company utilizing social media platforms. :)

  • I enjoy any presentation that can showcase non headline companies that are slowing using social media in the right way. Even better when they are b2b companies and manfuacturers. good examples used and and some creative comparison tables to underline the different uses - such as Twitter and the different types of conversations.

  • Introduce who we are and overview of our experience
  • Okay so we have created our account, our campaigns, our ad groups and our ads – no how do we get to the top?? Again for google it is all about relevance. Google has applied relevance to its sponsored listings as well. Now adword campaigns have a quality score. Your quality score is based on how well the ad is written, how relevant and specific the landing page is and how many negative words have been employed. For example if you are a pump manufacturer and your pumps go in manufacturing facilities you want to be found for rotary displacement pumps or centrifugal pumps but you don’t want to be found for well pumps or fuel pumps to for you negative words would be fuel and well.
  • A well balanced and full optimized program can saturate an SERP with your company’s information.
