PROGRAM:

How's your blog? Do you Twitter? Are your customers talking about your company online? Have your competitors started to use social media tools like YouTube videos, LinkedIn or even FaceBook to reach out to your markets? Social media and networks are exploding for B2B applications* and this presentation can help get you started.

SM4B2B will discuss how you can develop an online strategy to decide if SM is the best new way to engage your customers, prospects, channel partners and even your own people, whether they are on the other side of the globe or in the next cubical. And if it's the right time for your business, we'll show you how to get a fast, affordable start to test the waters.

We'll show examples of SM4B2B websites we built including what worked and what failed. We'll provide you with a set of definitions, research materials and good business reasons for going Web2.0 this year.

We'll cover key SM4B2B topics such as:

* What it is and why it's important.
* How to decide if now's the time.
* What does it cost? What will it make? Will it pay? How long will it take?
* How to start small, fast and cheap
* Should you build your own or join an industry community?
* What are the right tools, platforms and people to get started?

The Corvallis Chapter of the Software Association of Oregon is starting a Special Interest Group (SIG) to explore the best ways of growing our businesses using social media tools and helping other local companies learn how to get online putting Web 2.0 and social media tools to work. If you’re interested in seeing what we're planning to do with the SAO SM4B2B SIG (enough initials for you?), this meeting is the place to be. An objective of the SM4 SIG will be to build an online community of local companies that participate in the High Tech After Hours Conference held in Corvallis each November.

*Social Networks Get Down to Business, AUGUST 18, 2008

Think of them as digital water coolers—surrounded by thousands of workers engaged in serious business conversations.

"As compelling as the ad growth is, marketers will spend far more over the next few years to create and manage their own social networks for business customers, partners, suppliers and vendors," says Debra Aho Williamson, senior analyst at eMarketer and author of the new report, B2B Marketing on Social Networks: Engaging the Business Audience. "These business networks will serve a range of purposes, from improving customer communication and collaboration to aiding product development."

Does the Buyer's Journey Fit in Today's Customer-Led Environment?

With each new tool and prospect, the B2B marketing landscape shifts. Alongside these changes, the use cases of pre-defined templates and processes for understanding our audience move minute-to-minute. Marketers need to react more quickly to the needs of their customers and advocates and such real-time engagement has a multiplier effect on our lead funnels.

Join the TAO Marketing Community as we explore the shift from leading, to being customer-led, including:

*Are the days of a pre-defined buyer's journey becoming a thing of the past?

*How can we all be good listeners and good marketers?

*Is there a multiplier effect when we measure the impact of advocacy on the lead funnel?

The hand-selected panel by our TAO Marketing Committee will host a group of Oregon's tech marketing leaders to share their stories and advice. All attendees are encouraged to join the conversation, share experiences, and get answers to burning questions.

Panelists

Bill Schneider - Senior Director of Product Marketing, Urban Airship

Pinky Gonzales - Director of Marketing, Digimarc

Julie Zisman - Head of Marketing, Little Bird

Janet Johnson - Consulting CMO, O'Johnson Partner

Moderator
