Don't get left behind with your Digital Marketing Strategy, follow these 7 Steps to Brilliant B2B Marketing!

Many Business-to-business (B2B) companies are already successfully getting great results using digital marketing tactics like SEO, PPC, landing page creation, social media and email marketing linked to a CRM marketing automation system or a simple email autoresponse system.

But often, B2B organizations are not getting the most from today's marketing since they don't have a planned approach based on an integrated inbound marketing plan. To create an infographic showing the latest research on how companies are using inbound marketing, we've researched how B2B companies are using digital marketing. The results across different studies show that while many companies are delivering brilliant results,  many could do more.

Our updated infographic shows a planned approach based on our B2B digital marketing planning workbook.

We originally published this infographic back in 2012 when a longer guide was available, but we hope you still find the infographic useful; we've included advice on key issues to think through at each relevant step for all involved in inbound and content marketing.
