Marketing your Marketing Services

How many B2B marketing company is in there? Can you even count the number of marketing company around the globe? Do have any clue that even yourself is an asset of the marketing process? Most, probably people don’t have any idea that from the moment they buy a bottle of water or can of juice, they will become an asset of the marketing strategy of the brand. Take a look at the label of your bottle and you will realize that upon buying that, you are encouraging other people to buy that product.

On the contrary, marketing firm will have to think of another strategy in marketing. Wouldn’t it be too obvious if someone will tell you they are marketing their marketing service? Do you think its kind a redundant to think that someone is actually bannering marketing too obviously? This is the main problem of which B2B marketing are having, people don’t always wanted to become a marketing tool.

  1. Being too obvious in introducing their service
  2. Starters for business don’t know exactly the term “MARKETING”
  3. Business owners know advertisement more that marketing

          Being too obvious in introducing their service. Marketing service is not a joke, and looking for people who actually need it is far more than a serious joke. Marketing your marketing service is double the challenge in marketing. Imagine people hate marketers and giving them a slap face idea that you are marketing your service will make them hate you even more. Then how could we counter this?

          Starters for business don’t know exactly the term “MARKETING.” In a survey in 2013 in US, it has been found out that business owners don’t exactly know and need marketing service. One reason found that, why should one need a market if the market is already in the vicinity. Right! That is correct, business owners are not so confident if other people will introduce or the right term “market” their product or service.

          Business owners know advertisement more that marketing. But why is this so? The term advertising has become a popular term especially for the masses, while marketing on the other hand became a less known and less use in terms of business propaganda. The term marketing is how we deliver the business while advertising is how we let them know about our business.

          Indeed, so to answer the main question. B2B marketers must be specific on how we deliver the term marketing to our audience. We just have to say it clear that we marketers are annoying and yes that is true but we must explain that we are just trying to help their business find potential buyers. Isn’t that easy? Now, marketer around the corner must remember the term exactly because nowadays it seems that they are only concern more of being an advertiser more than being a marketer.   

Qualifications for Lead Nurturing

Lead Nurturing is tricky when it comes to how and why we choose such leads to be nurtured. This approach in giving of extra mile to work on with un-interested people needs not to be a narrow-filtering-funnel. When it comes to nurturing a leads, one may think that it is necessary to put on so much effort but true and not all the time. But this is just one of the many facets of which we have to include along the process.  A series of reminders the cues are listed accordingly based on the data analysis we produced. Feel free to see if you notice such cues from your leads.

  1. Your leads have a lot of queries –don’t be too happy about this because many robotic program acting like a real person will deceive you that they hold such persona in them. Remember that traffic is one of the facets in marketing by which they can be your competitor like a wolf in clothes of a sheep. Be sure to check background and verify the person behind who has been asking too many questions.
  2. Your lead is too good to be true –having a leads that qualifies all parameters in your agenda is too good to be true. Needless to say but this can be one of the scam a robot software can do. Again, verification of lead is one of the important things before anything else.
  3. Your lead is innocent –upon generating a lead, next thing is what I said is to verify them thru phone. But the story behind every telemarketer is that as if they called so many possible lead yet they don’t sound like they know the business themselves. They say that they don’t know anything about marketing or so what. This cause normally for people creating fake accounts from real people in social media.

Remember that ContactDB takes only qualified and quality lead for their clients. This is to keep our commitment in taking the business in the future.

Content Marketing in Targeting Prospects

For B2B marketing and lead generation process, prospect targeting with the use of content marketing is highly considered. Regardless the fact that competitors are out there eating out the data traffic, the good and efficient use of content marketing towards targeted prospect is a great strategy. In prospect targeting, considering the fact that your website is being visited by random yet can be categorized persona, you can divide your viewers to produce more relevant content whether if it is video blog, web content or music videos.

So before diving into making your unique content, make sure you have already qualified the type of audience you expected.

Neutral – this type of audience is new to your website or just a passerby. Since there is little interest for your content, lead generation value is depleted. Marketing method for this type is to find a way to get your audience to care or to become invested without offending them.

Hostile – this is the least audience you want on your list. They don’t care at all what is being said. So you can find a common ground, a starting point where either your audience can relate to you or you can relate to them.

Uninformed – next from the hostile, you may consider this type. They are not aware of what you are going to show, so don’t bog the audience down with too much background information.  Make sure you are still sticking to the main point you want to make in the paper.

Expert – this type is very critical towards your topic. They know and well-informed about the topic so try not to say any loophole and make sure your source are reliable. So do your research.  Don’t think that a brief overview of sources will be enough to convince this audience.

Business – this type is very timely and don’t have the pleasure to read or watch your content. So don’t waste time painting a picture or telling a story.  Get right to the point. Always make sure your audience feels as though you are considering them, not focusing on yourself.

I know you are one of these four audiences right here, so I know you can do better the next time you present your content in your marketing.
