Five social media tips for B2B businesses that cost nothing

Social Media logosAll new business owners have the same goal: to spread awareness and attract new customers. Many B2B businesses choose to ignore social media and instead rely on outbound emails or traditional advertising. Many B2B business owners avoid social media because they believe their customers don’t use it or care about it. But they are on social media and they do. Nearly the entire world (3.6 billion people), spends a lot of time on social media platforms ( , 145 minutes per week).

Rethink social media in your B2B Marketing Strategy! Social media marketing can be a cost-effective and easy way to reach your customers, build relationships and generate revenue for your business. The best part? Many of these tips do not require any budget. Here are our five favorite social media marketing strategies for B2B businesses that don’t cost a penny to implement.

Share your passion for your industry with your audience. They will love it!

3. What kind of stories do you like to read and share on social media? It’s unlikely that the answer will be brochures, service descriptions, or hours of location. This is what small business owners do when they begin social media marketing. They are trying to find a quick way to gain customers by building an audience. It’s not possible to do organic social in this way.

Tell the story of your manufacturing process if you’re a company. It may seem boring to you, but the public is fascinated by how things are made.

A quick tip about storytelling: Do not make yourself the protagonist of every story. Put your potential customer in the center of social media! This works for B2B companies as well. Say you’re a commercial insurance adviser. You This
