B2B Marketing and The Power of Twitter

Twitter gives B2B marketers a powerful opportunity to access broad networks of brands, companies and decision makers on Twitter. Supported by the latest research, we demonstrate why Twitter is not optional and why private and publicly listed brands are missing out on a solid opportunity if they do not incorporate Twitter into their marketing mix.

We demonstrate that Twitter is not optional for brands engaged with B2B marketing. We include the most recent data from multiple leading sources, including The Social Media Examiner, Inc.; Twitter, Inc.; Regalix, Inc. and others.

Twitter provides private and publicly-listed brands an opportunity to engage with broad networks of other brands, firms and key decision makers that also use Twitter. We note that Twitter's active user base is comprised of 250 million plus users and is growing.

When used effectively and in combination with communication strategy and tools, Twitter represents the optimal platform for deploying ongoing messaging. When viewed as a communications hub, Twitter is unrivaled through its ability to integrate other channels and information sources and to coordinate their priority and emphasis. Twitter is effective at relaying information on channels that include Websites, Press releases, Instragram, Facebook, Snapchat, URLs, and any other linkable source of information, and driving traffic to these same sources.

We note that press releases and awareness in general can be difficult for some brands and companies to generate but that Twitter is a proven solution.

Sky Alphabet is a social media marketing agency that utilizes Twitter to achieve growth, awareness and sales objectives through integrated forms of traditional and digital communications driven by Twitter. We understand that Twitter is "not easy" because of its unrelenting requirement for fresh and relevant content, but it is this same requirement that makes Twitter the ideal platform for brands, companies, people and products that are prepared to express themselves through such an advanced channel.
