B2B Marketing & Pinterest: 5 Tips for Becoming the Ultimate Pinner | Business Attractitude | Scoop.it

Want the skinny on using Pinterest to promote your b2b marketing? Follow these five tips and kick-start your brand’s expansion into this emerging social media phenomenon.

 

1. Advertising and infographics rule the b2b marketing pins

 

Today, B2B marketers can get tons of great examples of award winning infographics and advertising campaigns on Pinterest. For that alone it’s an amazing resource. However, for other types of marketing, well, my fellow marketers, we have some work to do. Imagine a Pinterest page filled with pins of amazing fashion, inspirational interior design, stunning landscapes, and a screenshot of your low production value product demo video…um, it’s nice you have a presence, but how does that pin of a crappy screenshot of a crappy video look next to the rest of these other magnificent pins?

Staying Motivated When You Really Hate Your Job | Resumebear Online Resume | Business Attractitude | Scoop.it

Let’s be honest, work for the most part, sucks. Even if you are part of the 20% of Americans who actually truly enjoy what they are doing, chances are likely that you would rather be doing something else.

Job satisfaction rates are horrendous and one of the reasons is that people are slowly starting to realize that there is a better way to live. We are wising up to the fact that we don’t NEED to work a crappy job and just grind out a living.

There is so much opportunity for anyone willing to take control of their life and commit to living a passionate life.

The ‘Slow Drip’ Method for Building a Massive Following

The ‘Slow Drip’ Method for Building a Massive Following | Business Attractitude | Scoop.it

Most successful businesses are built up slowly over time, and they manage to develop their systems and employee capabilities in such a way, as to keep pace with the rate of growth and avoid the risk of imploding from systems and people not being able to keep up with their rate of growth.

 

Some businesses however, rise rapidly and expand exponentially,  and either survive after much turmoil and angst, or crash and burn when the upgrading of systems and people fail to keep pace with the growth.

 

This excellent article, is for those who take the slow and steady approach, and it provides a blueprint on how to build a great business one customer at a time and without high levels of risk.

This excellent article, suggests ditching this approach to build a customer driven (rather than a competitor driven) definition of your competitive advantage, and it offers three steps you can take to achieve this outcome.
