What B2B Blog Topics Work Best?

Posted by Joel Goldstein

Jan 21, 2020 10:00:20 AM

You have a blog and you post at regular intervals. Great, lots of companies do.

But oh, finding those topics …

Probably the most difficult part of maintaining a B2B blog is finding appropriate topics. Everyone’s got a few good ideas. But you have to feed the beast all the time and it’s hard to write blogs that don’t eventually sound the same.  And believe me, everyone’s getting tired of the formulaic headlines about “3 ideas for this” and “5 tips for that.”

However, there are several topics that any company can cover on its blog in a way that’s fresh, has impact, and ties to the brand. They not only provide a variety of content, but they also help tell the story of your brand and why it stands out from the competition.

Check out this list of B2B blog ideas.

The Importance of Campaigns that Market to Engineers (and How to Do It)

Posted by Joel Goldstein

Dec 18, 2019 3:09:07 PM

Marketing is all about your message. How you say something is equally as important, if not more, than what you’re MarketToEngineers-249x221 (002)saying. That’s why you need to adapt your language and your tone to fit your audience.

If you’re dealing with highly technical customers – like engineers – then your communications should be up to the technical level that they’re used to. Otherwise, it just might feel like you’re speaking two different languages. You need to come across like someone within their industries who knows what they’re talking about. Since engineers can often be the decision makers at their company on what products to use, you must convince them more than anyone else that you offer a quality product or service.

Some marketers talk instead about simplifying engineering content, about making it understandable to the layman.  Actually, at GGC we do the opposite: we take engineering content and keep it at an engineer-to-engineer level. While layman’s language may be the right strategy if you’re communicating in a B2C environment, in the B2B world, the technical buyer understands complexity and needs that complexity in order to make the right buying or spec decision.  So we must be able to communicate at their level.

Throwback Thursday: AI for Marketing

Posted by Joel Goldstein

Nov 14, 2019 2:54:22 PM

Today we are throwing it back to this summer when Scott McAfferty from WTWH Media visited our offices to talk about how companies are using AI and marketing automation to leverage marketing impact.  

Artificial intelligence is being used within marketing to reach current and prospective customers by creating programs that align with users’ content affinities to drive ROI. AI for marketing is in its early stages and tech tool developers pitch that their tools will have a great deal of impact in how we can find leads, nurture them, and convert them into customers. There is still a lot to learn, though. “While over 80% of marketers have used AI in some way, only 15% are using it effectively. “ (Source)

How to Elevate your B2B Marketing by Building a Compelling Message Architecture.

Posted by Joel Goldstein

Sep 5, 2019 11:01:43 AM

Companies often struggle with the messaging that drives marketing. Getting the message right is hard, and all the precise execution in the world on the tactics won’t really take hold if the programs are built on a message that misses the mark. Why do companies seem to struggle so much with messaging? Often, it’s like not being able to see the forest for the trees. Companies don’t have the distance or context to see how their message is playing. Or they feel they’ve got a differentiated message, something that’s truly unique, but in truth it’s just another case of “me-messaging,” something too similar to everyone else.

As summer begins to wind down, we aren't quite ready to say goodbye and are excitedly preparing for our Marketing Summer Camp event. Working in marketing, we sometimes are the company department accused of having too much fun, and that's what we go for here at GGC. It's also what we get having our "Office Pups" around every day. ICYMI, in our last newsletter we introduced you Gertrude and Elliott, who belong to Marketing Manager Sandi Hensel.
