What are the key areas in the B2B marketing industry where professionals see a need to adapt to meet new challenges?

One straightforward way to gauge the pulse of the industry is simply by asking, and social media polls can offer a uniquely helpful look into the concerns of B2B marketers.

In our third most popular B2B social media marketing article of the year, we took a look at what the latest poll data reveals about where B2B marketing is in 2022, from tactics and platforms to events, search and more, plus where it’s headed in 2023.

Social listening is a vital aspect of modern B2B marketing, providing valuable insight into current and potential future customers, yet many marketers treat it almost as an afterthought.

From devoting greater bandwidth to purposeful listening to using observational skills that drive marketing change, in the fourth most popular social media marketing post of 2022 we shared 5 key ways to take your listening skills to the next level.

“’Listen’ means much more than hearing with ears. It means to pay attention. Synonyms include observe, be attentive, give attention to, hang on words, and take notice.” — Meryl Evans @MerylkEvans Click To Tweet

What do B2B brands need to know about the metaverse?

The metaverse is currently a disconnected hodgepodge of holographic hopes and digital dreams that may or may not eventually reach the sustainable velocity to capture the hearts, minds, and wallets of the public and private sectors.

Whether you’re just testing the metaverse waters as a B2B brand, making the decision to go all-in, or taking a wait-and-see approach, in our sixth most popular social media marketing post of the year we took a deep dive into the current state of the metaverse, and shared top 5 insights B2B marketers can use today and in 2023.

“People ask about virtual reality, and if the metaverse is going to be the whole future, and the answer is that it’s going to be part of the future.” — Sir Tim Berners-Lee @timberners_lee Click To Tweet

7. Instagram’s Enhanced Creator Tags: Implications for B2B Influencer Marketing — Lane R. Ellis

How can B2B marketers benefit from Instagram’s enhanced tagging features?

Instagram’s addition of enhanced tagging — which is also available for use in video Reels — offers significant exposure opportunities for B2B content that has been created by multiple professionals, often precisely the type of content that is either made or co-created by B2B industry influencers.

In our seventh most popular social media marketing post of the year, we looked at how enhanced Instagram tagging can help give a voice to industry experts, help elevate underrepresented talent, and boost brand visibility.

“In a world where online visibility directly leads to brand sponsorships and other types of monetary opportunities, crediting is more important than ever.” — Alexandra Zaoui @ZaouiAlexandra Click To Tweet

8. How B2B Brands Can Embrace The Metaverse, BeReal, & Other Developing Social Channels — Lane R. Ellis

How B2B brands can embrace emerging channels woman opening curtain image

Should B2B brands embrace the metaverse, BeReal, and other developing social communication channels, and if so, when is the right time to start becoming involved?

While we haven’t quite gone from B2B to B-to-BeReal just yet, emerging social channels such as BeReal and in a broader sense the metaverse do offer B2B marketers and brands plenty of opportunities, as we explored in our eighth most popular social media marketing article of the year.

The web graveyard is littered with the digital skeletons of so many formerly promising social platforms, including some that were once seemingly poised to rise to the echelon of the most-used forms of online communication.

This social media platform churn is also what helps keep the web interesting and alive, yet there’s no doubt the turnover has made it harder for B2B marketers to invest in new and developing social channels, a challenge that will continue into 2023.

“People make purchasing decisions based on recommendations and perceptions of people (not brands) they respect and trust. Influencers will be essential for humanizing B2B brands in 2022.” — Tamara McCleary @TamaraMcCleary Click To Tweet

“It takes great storytelling to attract, engage, and convert in B2B marketing, and having a bigger slate to work with lets more powerful brand, customer, and employee stories gain a new audience.” — Lane R. Ellis @lanerellis Click To Tweet

Now that the inaugural Cannes Creative B2B Lions awards event has taken place, in the tenth most popular social media marketing article of the year, we took a look at just what award-winning B2B campaign efforts look like in 2022, and where they are likely to be headed in 2023.
