Our New Year’s B2B Marketing Resolutions
Inspired by Neil’s resolution “to eat breakfast every morning”, I got everyone at Velocity to give me their B2B marketing resolutions. So here are the new year’s resolutions from the heavyweights (especially after Christmas) at Velocity:
Speak at more B2B industry events – To get the message out there that the old way of marketing is running out of steam
Target prospects that are really right for Velocity – Work with great marketers that really value what we do and how we approach marketing problem solving
Grow (sensibly)! – To meet demand while keeping service levels up.
Do more web video – This is a great way to get complex stories across quickly and clearly. We already do a lot of it but we will do lots more.
Spend less time (but better time) on social media – It’s not really social, it’s for work*. But it can really eat up the time.
Write a smash hit follow up to the Content Marketing Workbook – We’re approaching a thousand downloads! Next time we’ll try to beat that.
Put more time and effort into website conversions – Otherwise what’s the point?
Use more lead nurturing tools i.e. Marketo – Better bait for catching clients
Create effective ROI metrics for social media campaigning – So we know what to focus our energies on
Write one great headline a week
So Doug doesn’t have to keep grimacing like that
Be able to explain cloud computing to my mother
If I can make her get it, I’ve arrived…
This year we’re going to stick to them. Definitely.
