In today’s ‘always on’ business environment, social media has emerged as an indispensable tool for B2B companies seeking to connect with key decision-makers, nurture relationships, and drive business growth. However, navigating the complexities of the B2B social media landscape can be challenging for businesses without the expertise and resources to develop and execute effective strategies.

What is B2B social media?

B2B social media refers to the use of social media platforms to connect with and engage businesses, organisations, influencers and key spokespeople. It differs from B2C (business-to-consumer) social media as it focuses on building relationships with other businesses, rather than individual consumers. Effective B2B social media strategies require a deep understanding of the target audience, the competitive landscape, and the social media platforms that are most relevant to the business. It also requires the ability to create engaging and informative content that resonates with the target audience.
