Ahoy, brave B2B marketers! Buckle up because we’re diving headfirst into the exhilarating world of Business-to-Business (B2B) marketing with a sparkle of wit and a pinch (or perhaps a handful) of absurdity!
Tip #1: Emoji-nize Your Communications
Did you think emojis were only for teenagers and WhatsApp groups? Think again! Sprinkle a dash of fun into those often too-formal emails and messages with emojis that encapsulate the emotion behind the missive. It humanizes your brand and, yes, even businesses like to engage with something that has a pulse. CRM.lab (nethunt) shares the pros and cons here.
Tip #2: The Meme Majesty
Transform that dry industry jargon into scrumptious meme material. Lighten the atmosphere by transforming stats, data, and corporate speak into memes that make even the most stoic business moguls chuckle. Who knew profit margins could evoke laughter, right? See it in action with TheBig4Accountant on Instagram.
Tip #3: GIFs – The Unsung Heroes of Brevity
Why write a 200-word email when a GIF can convey it instantaneously, injecting a dose of lightness and humanity into the conversation? Choose GIFs that brighten up the message, ensuring your communications are lively, vibrant, and, dare we say, entertaining. Get more tips from SpiceWorks.
Tip #4: Storytime Chronicles
Pack your content with relatable stories that make your brand approachable and authentic. Your client might forget data, but they will never forget how you made them feel with that hilarious anecdote about a product launch gone hilariously awry yet spectacularly salvaged. Demodia shares 8 examples of how this is used by companies.
Tip #5: Social Media Banter Fiesta
Ditch the tie and engage in some cheeky, playful banter with businesses and clients on social media. It’s a spectacle that not only humanizes your brand but also engages others in a delightful, memorable manner. It’s not always about promoting content; sometimes, it’s just about sharing a good laugh.
There you have it, five twinkling tips to navigate the often too-serious sea of B2B marketing. By adding a touch of humor, a dash of relatability, and a torrent of genuine, heartfelt communication, you’re not merely selling a service; you’re becoming the jester that stole the king’s heart (and business). Brand Equity shares tips on how to do it right.
