Social Marketing & Business Trends [INFOGRAPHIC]

Business-to-business social media marketing has always been a harder nut to crack than its business to consumer counterpart. A new study suggests that a refusal to embrace new social channels might be one reason why.

While more B2B marketers are using social media sites than ever before, Facebook (83 percent), Twitter (80 percent) and LinkedIn (80 percent) are far and away the platforms of choice for the majority of brands, with YouTube (61 percent) and Google+ (39 percent) rounding out the top five.

Pinterest is used by just one in four B2B marketers (26 percent), and Instagram less than one in ten (7 percent).

Be strategic about who is managing your Socia Media. It matters...

Two Pens's curator insight, April 14, 2013 11:41 AM

Interesting that writing skill is such a low priority for social media personnel (only 18%). Might be why only 5% of companies are happy with their social media activities :-)

I agree, content needs to be written by someone with writing skills..

5 Companies that are Rocking Social Media [infographic] | Digital Brand Marketing |

This infographic takes a closer look at how five very-different brands are rocking social media.

Social media technologies take on many different forms including magazines, Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, microblogging, wikis, social networks, podcasts, photographs or pictures, video, rating and social bookmarking. This visualization defines how these types of Social Media differ according to the extent to which they focus on some of all of seven functional building blocks: identity, conversations, sharing, presence, relationships, reputation, and groups.
