For B2B organizations, determining the right targeting, messaging, and channel for their marketing often requires a great deal of research and testing. And that’s true whether you’re working with paid or organic media.
In this episode of B2B Nation we’re talking to Naira Perez, who runs Springhill Digital, a boutique agency that manages paid social and search channels for its clients. According to Naira, paid social and search face many of the same challenges as other B2B marketing channels. They struggle to reach audiences in a sea of messages. They tend to be more effective for branding than for converting sales. And perhaps unique to paid social, the audience moves from platform to platform when it grows bored.
