B2B Social Media Resources

People ask me about business-to-business social media questions all the time. I usually have great answers, and then they ask me about case studies. At moments like that, I just dip into my collection of case studies on Delicious. Today, I went out and found a bunch more. Here are some posts that others have written that point to good studies and resources for B2B Social Media Marketing:

    Thanks for posting this Chris! I deal with small business owners, and it’s great to have some successful case studies to present to them. They know they need to use social media, but are a bit hesitant to start since it’s quite new to them and not sure they’ll get results.

      Kris,

      I run into the same issue all they hear is the negative stories. It is great that Chris can share these case studies with us to show them the positive side and benefits.

        It’s interesting that when I come across businesses who have negative stories, it’s mainly because they never learned how to use social media properly. Some think that all they need to do is put up a Facebook page, and expect customers to come. Others treat it like “social selling” instead of “social networking” – you need to engage with your fan base first and provide value, instead of selling. Relationships take time to build.

    Lot of footwork there!

    I’m looking at the titles to learn about how bloggers present case studies. The number 3 seems to be a commonality, as does the word “awesome.”

    I think in 2011 I’m going to bring gnarly into the business mainstream.

    “3 gnarly Social Media case studies.” Then I’ll do a case study to see how gnarly performs. Yesss…

    TKS for including my Savvy B2B post in your list. Even bigger thanks for sharing all those other great resources! We’re always on the lookout for examples of how B2B cam make social work (as well as cautionary tales about what NOT to do!) & this post is a gold mine of references and resources. THANKS!

  • Nanross

    Wow! Thanks, Chris for the case studies resources. Case studies are crucial for B2B social media.

    Once again you “showed” rather than “told” us how to use social networking and social media resources.

    We don’t have to know and do everything–we connect with others who are doing good work. Together, the whole team is better than the individual players.

  • Abbie S. Fink

    Chris — perfect timing. I have been working with a commercial real estate client that has been hesitant to get into social media. Wanted some proof that it works in the b-2-b world. Now I’ve got some great case studies to share. Thank you.
