Content and Social Media Marketing have got a bad name. Despite what the statistics say, most B2B companies still tend to believe that these incredible marketing platforms work only for those companies or brands that have an exciting product or service or a huge following of Gen Xers or Millennials (think B2C). However, for every exciting Go-Pro, there is an IBM that is leveraging social platforms and channels to connect with their audience (exciting or not)! If you are one of those who believes that it’s only fun brands that can rock social media, here’s a little something to break those assumptions.
