Loud & Clear: How B2B Marketers Can Turn Up the Signal-to-Noise Ratio

Social media has matured. So what does this mean for business-to-business brands? It means that now is a perfect time for marketers who value engagement analytics, quality over quantity and targeted messaging.

At the same time, the line between personal and professional life is increasingly blurring and social media channels are playing a vital role in business purchase decisions. making them more attractive than ever to companies looking to reach business decision makers. No longer are these decisions solely being made in the context of the 9-to-5 workspace.

Our esteemed panel will investigate:
The improved analytics that are in place, as well as looming in the near future, and how this larger view of user engagement benefits b2b marketers.
· How to get content marketing right. Yes, content is king and yes, anyone can self-publish, but that doesn’t mean the content is necessarily effective.
· The impact of social as it becomes more deeply woven into emerging and existing media channels. How b2b marketers can leverage media to communicate their message out loud and clear.

The panelists are:

Moderator: Meredith Kopit Levien, Chief Revenue Officer, Forbes Media
Ethan Hays, Search Director, gyro
Maikel O’Hanlon, Director of Social Media Strategy, Horizon Media

Mark Howard, Senior Vice President, Digital Advertising Strategy at Forbes Media
