Best tips for running a successful B2B marketing campaign:

  • Know your audience – Knowing your target audience is crucial in the planning and running of your marketing campaign to ensure your content is highly relevant and engaging for the personas you’re trying to appeal to.
  • Creating content – A B2B marketing campaign is intended to engage and motivate your key audience into action, whether they’re employees or potential customers. Therefore, it is vital that your content is not only informative but engaging too. Especially if your aim is to create action such as pushing the prospect into your company’s sales funnel. Creating strong visuals (such as pictures, infographics and videos) is also key, as they can communicate your message quicker and easier.
  • Where you distribute your campaign – the marketing channels you use carry a lot of importance. You need to consider what marketing channels will be most visible and appropriate to your target audience. You could also explore channels that your competitors haven’t yet taken advantage of. But make sure you know which channels the audience uses and map yours against them.
  • Share! – Continuing to share your campaign through your social media, website and newsletter gives your campaign a better chance of reaching a wider audience.
