Are you making the most of your social and digital channels? Are the returns worth your efforts? Are you considering increasing your social presence or are you going the other way; reducing activity all together?

This On Demand Event will cover:

  • How planned social media can be used to build credibility
  • Why sharing content is not enough to build a relationship
  • How to target in-kind buyers, stakeholders, and influencers
  • How you can position yourself earlier in the buying cycle
  • Suggestions for article posting, distribution and frequency

The panel will also debate a recent IDC survey (March 2016) on how B2B customers are using social media to progress their buyer-decision journey. Learn how others are using social media and whether 'reducing', 'staying put' or 'increasing' your social efforts is the right decision for you.
