Marketing More Productively There are so many opportunities to do exciting, creative things when you’re marketing a product, that you don’t have time to do everything, and it can sometimes mean that you don’t know where to start.

I was at a conference recently, and was asked for good examples of B2B social media campaigns. It’s so easy to think about good campaigns – I immediately had entertaining and memorable campaigns rushing round my head like the Old Spice man on a horse videos, Oreo and Twix Twitter banter, Sony’s Pinterest campaigns, and Lynx newsjacking antics, but I was really struggling to filter for anything that wasn’t consumer focussed.
