When you dine at restaurants, good servers will converse with you to learn more about your tastes so they can recommend dishes that appeal to you. Unless you are a regular customer, it’s unlikely that they know enough about what you like to provide you with a tailored recommendation. Fortunately, B2B marketing and sales representatives don’t have this problem.
Since the first of the year, I’ve been fortunate to be part of teams launching several new B2B brands. While our clients were familiar with the need to optimize their new websites for search, they were surprised to learn that SEO was equally important within their social media channels. For new brands entering an already competitive marketplace, SEO is vitally important.
We all have them—those periodic major announcements that give us something to really blow our horns about. But what do you talk about in the lull between the “big stuff” like new product launches, key customer wins or industry partnerships? To augment those major announcements you have a time or two each year, it’s important to generate a secondary, regular flow of interesting content to keep your marketing momentum going in between.
