Bridging the Gap Between B2B Marketing and Sales / Best Practices from Lithuania

In-Person Event September 22nd 2022

Venue: Workland Gedimino

The importance of B2B marketing

We’ll be covering the following: 

Traditionally, there is much less talk about B2B marketing than B2C marketing. Moreover, many B2B companies do not even have a marketing department or a marketing manager. However, it doesn’t mean that these companies do not engage in marketing or the need for marketing is somehow minor compared to their B2C counterparts. 

 

Nevertheless, there are significant differences between the two. In B2B companies, marketing and sales are closely linked. For example, a marketing campaign may be aimed at winning a single customer (also known as account based marketing). The metrics are also different: if the success of B2C companies' social media posts is measured in the thousands or millions, the "like" of one important decision maker may be enough for a B2B campaign.

 

As part of this seminar, you will have the chance to learn from practical Lithuanian case studies of B2B marketing and communications and learn how to better link marketing and sales. 

 

  • How to link marketing and sales

  • The basics of B2B content marketing 

  • How to use LinkedIn Marketing

  • Practical examples of B2B employer branding

  • Practical B2B marketing case studies from Lithuanian companies

  • Merging the gap between startups and traditional businesses 

  • Social selling in B2B 

 

Who should attend?

  • Sales managers of B2B companies

  • Marketing managers of B2B companies

  • Marketing agencies working with B2B clients

  • Business owners 

  • HR managers of B2B companies 

  • Communication managers of B2B companies
