LinkedIn tops the list of top social media used by B2B marketers

LinkedIn is cited as a key tactic used by marketers to reach a B2B audience, according to a recent study by BtoB and the Association of National Advertisers.

Generally, marketers are making a stronger push into social media, with 57% saying they are either currently utilizing social media, as opposed to 15% in an earlier study.

I’m surprised to see that corporate blogging falls further down the list. Is this because marketers in this space aren’t the people who can maintain these blogs? Does this task fall to subject matter experts who might be in another part of the organization.

Interesting to see that search engine optimization outranks paid search marketing: a sign of the times given the tight marketing budgets?

  1. SEO should outrank paid search marketing. Organic SEO is one of the best ways of getting traffic to your website. Most people I speak to only click the organic results.
