IT B2B: Why Social Media Should Be Your Biz Dev Friend [Infographic]

IT B2B: Why Social Media Should Be Your Biz Dev Friend [Infographic] | BI Revolution | Scoop.it

Many professionals are turning to social media as a place of trust for their purchasing decisions and it’s no different for the IT industry. IT decision makers have a highly-regarded task of ensuring they recommend the best products and services for their organizations.

LinkedIn, Forrester Consulting, and Research Now zeroed in on these professionals to see how they utilize social media, including its effects on their purchasing decisions and how they engage with social.


According to Michael Weir, Head of Category Development for the Technology Industry at LinkedIn, “It’s no surprise that [IT decision makers] are heavy users of social networks. In fact, 85% have used at least one social network for business purposes.

What’s surprising is that 73% have engaged with an IT vendor on a social network – underscoring the value of the channel for IT marketers. Even more revealing is the fact that social media is now a critical source of influence across the entire decision making process, not just during the initial research phase.”

I wish consistent greatness was as easy to follow as this or any blueprint. I like every idea expressed here, but there is a certain serendipity to greatness that is hard to capture. I do believe practicing like you want to play increases your chances of discovering the magic serendipity, which I realize makes it sound less like serendipity :), but there you have it :).M
