Moving forward with B2B Marketing

Here’s the latest piece of unofficial media from the great Gary Vaynerchuck school of social media marketing.

It’s quite a long interview but the man gives us a solid platform for success, especially for us who live the un-glamorous back end of the online and social media marketing side of the world.

The lessons he’s putting out aren’t exactly new but when the man’s announcing he’s coming out with another book – heads tend to turn to the man who’s basically invented personal branding.

Not Your Ordinary Mechanical Keyboard: Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire TK

Getting the new Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire TK, at Macro Logic, was probably the best decision I made for my gaming obsession. I know it probably isn’t the best mechanical keyboard in the market but when you are still in college and could not personally afford your wants, I had to settle for something equally excellent but for a price within my pocket’s means. Cooler Master always has the answers for these kinds of issues and I was glad to have checked their website for the product I needed. 62 GBP for a sleek and slim mechanical keyboard? I was definitely having the time of my life.

So upon delivery, I expected nothing more but a plain mechanical keyboard. Imagine the surprise when added delights came in handy. There were multimedia keys for easier access on my music and videos. There was an amazing lighting mode (full LED lights) that renders a breathing illusion on the board. There was a key tool for easier key removal and replacement. Then there was the removal cord and cable that was braided to suit a more durable usage. Now I ask you, do you honesty think I got just a plain mechanical keyboard? Your answer is as good as mine!

Fully-Functional Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire TK

Unlike most mechanical keyboards, the Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire TK is a little smaller with only 92 keys instead of the usual 104. This however, does not make it, in any way, less than its peers when it comes to full functionality and durability. In fact, I believe that with this keyboard, Cooler Master was able to produce one of the best of its kind considering its convenience to gamers like me and its affordability for people who would like the best substitute for the higher end models.

I couldn’t almost get myself to believe that despite having less number of keys, it still held a complete numerical keypad, important function buttons (page up, page down, end, home), and as an added delight, a set of shortcut media keys that allows me to access my second love (first love being video games) which is music. I got this board for less than 65 GBP and yet I always though I got more! You can see more of the Cooler Master CM Storm Quickfire TK at Lexa Lab.

Online Stores and B2B Marketing via the Social Media: A Case Study

We almost always talk about engagement as a function of sales and a metric of performance in this increasingly redundant, almost reductionist world of social media marketing.

In the greater scheme of things, we almost find ourselves (the business to business marketing crowd) to be on the losing end of the stick. We talk about engagement; we talk about connecting to people but what if we’re in industries that neither have the capacity to be social nor the inclination to be so?

Last week, I found some really interesting material on how this little company that specializes in social media media marketing in the Philippines ran a case study to determine which social networking platforms are the best for B2C or consumer driven marketing campaigns.

The truth is, I think their data is a bit flawed or there’s a ton of other things they aren’t showing. The data set is large enough to merit a large to be conclusive but I think there’s a lot more to that study than this little infographic would like us to believe.

Can we translate the same successes to business to business marketing? More specifically, will these same platforms work for us in the anti-social end of the spectrum?

The issue that came up was that marketing has become so complex that it is becoming difficult to penetrate the market without the help of online marketing tools. In this context, social media came up strongly as a formidable way of increasing a company’s presence .The cost of marketing and advertising was revisited with B2B players claiming that while physical marketing techniques are outdated, they remain expensive relative online social media advertising. Today, many B2B companies have reduced their physical marketing and have instead boosted their online marketing with statistics indicating that about 50% of all companies surveyed indicating reduced spending.

Businesses are currently utilizing social media as a strategic tool to increase their presence across the world. In addition, offline business can now use social media platforms as a method of reaching potential customers in areas that are deemed unreachable.

Today, social media has become a milestone that has overturned this condition. Many businesses seeking to outperform their rivals can no longer ignore such platforms as Google+, Facebook, Twitter and other specific platforms or forums that present significant benefits to businesses. Contrary to other marketing media, social media provides free and easy ways of bringing businesses to the public domain

Surveys show that more than 1 billion people are using social media and that about 65% of these people use multiple forums to connect with their friends and families. Business to business marketing with social media provides businesses with a quick and easy way of reaching global customers without positioning points of sales across regions.

My House and the Security System

I bought a wireless security camera system for my house after I had been broken into. I know that it seems too late, buying the system after the break in, but my idea was to stop it happening again.

I bought one of the cheaper systems to start off with because I just wanted something up and I planned on adding to it later. The DVR that came with the system had the capability to expand, so I think I am just going to buy new cameras in the future.

I found my wireless security camera system to be very good. It recorded audio and it had night vision. The cameras were easy to install and I would compare the whole installation to that of installing a new TV.

I now feel safer in the house and I have the piece of mind that the house is safe when I go out for the day.

Life Without Business to Business Marketing

While businesses that market their products and services to consumers have embraced social media, many business-to-business firms have not. I chose to be different however, because the research had shown that my business stood to benefit a lot from using social media to raise my brand profile.

What business-to-business marketing with social media entails

I usually do business to business marketing with social media by using all the tools available to me on these sites to interact with my clients and attract them to my website. This way, I have a higher chance of ensuring that I not only raise awareness about my company but also convert the traffic to my website into sales and revenue continuously.

What my business-to-business marketing process involved

One of the first things I did in order to promote my business to my corporate clients was to establish several accounts in various major social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. After that, I embarked on a research project to determine whom my target clients were, what they wanted, and why they were not coming to me.

I then started making a contact list with details of all major clients I wanted to attract. Doing so enabled me to take part in their conversations on all the social media sites I was a member of. I proceeded to upload presentations that my business had done in order to provide my potential clients with something to think about.

Another strategy I used was employing monitoring tools to keep track of what people were saying. This enabled me to do damage control and answer any queries that arose regarding my brand.

Once I had established a relationship with my potential clients, I ensured that I was at the forefront of promoting discussions about issues related to my niche. Using the influence I had earned, I built interest in other marketing events I had organized to raise my company’s profile. Most of the companies in my network had representatives show up.

Persuading my potential clients to give my products and services, a try after doing my homework was quite easy. I continue to use social media to this day to keep track of my clients and deal with their needs. Social media has revolutionized my business-to-business firm and in would recommend it to anyone.
