Is there still a need for content like press releases and white papers in 2017?

Can you direct the attention to your business by using content published on Facebook, Twitter, Medium and other social media — exclusively? You can, but your story won't necessarily be picked up by the media, printed or online. Especially in a B2B environment chances are your Facebook page won't generate enough genuine interest and you will need a more traditional approach to reach your target audience.

How do printers tackle marketing? - IT ENQUIRER on Printing

How do printers tackle marketing? - IT ENQUIRER on Printing | Printing Technologies | Scoop.it
Big printing companies have a marketing staff or at least someone who manages the marketing activities of the company. Smaller printing businesses and service providers lack those resources. How they manage their marketing needs is not always straightforward. In the age of social media, one equipment vendor comes to the rescue, but too few printers are grabbing the opportunity in my opinion.

How to increase profitability: essential strategies - IT ENQUIRER

E. Vlietinck's insight:

In EFI’s European Select of October, Rosemarie Monaco wrote a piece on profitability applied to the printer business. In her introduction, she states: “If you read the research, anywhere from the London School of Business to the Harvard Business Review, you will find the same advice. To be profitable you must examine, tighten and monitor two main factors: costs and productivity.”

I wouldn’t dream of arguing with the research, but I do believe the article is cutting corners and the advice given by researchers is taken out of context.
