It is important for marketers to be able to leverage technology to achieve marketing success. Many marketers struggle to fill the marketing funnel, because they don’t properly use the technology. If you want your technology implementations are properly leveraged, you should avoid over-stressing your marketing messages. In many cases, people only want solution to their problems and you are not helpful, if you continue telling them common marketing messages. In this situation, marketers should understand how specific issue could manifest among potential buyers and whether they have solutions that can be offered to customers. This should be something that can be explained to anyone. If the potential buyer has a business, marketer should be able to explain what kind of changes that they will get by purchasing the solution. No matter how much technology that you implement, you won’t get far if you choose the wrong kinds of technology. You should look for ways to bring more values to the table.

When using technology, it is important that you are able to improve networking, because it’s an essential element to any marketing plan. This is a place where you can meet new prospects. You will also be able to strengthen relationships with other prospects, as an example by using Facebook and LinkedIn. Many marketers are able to get great results by using effective LinkedIn profile. Social media can be used to improve your credibility and if you are seen as credible enough, you will be recommended by satisfied buyers. People recommend marketers in social media, if they have been helped immensely in the past. Marketers should know how to use social media properly. As an example, LinkedIn is appropriate for B2B relationships, especially when marketers work for a supplier or manufacturing company, which don’t have direct relationships with average consumers. Facebook is a more casual platform, with a lot more users. This is a good thing if marketers interact with average customers. Regardless of what social media platform that you use, you need to maintain your presence much more actively.
With social media, marketers are able to provide instructions. They need to find common ground and then they can perform the call to action. If marketers want to fully leverage social media, they should avoid posting party pictures and other things that are unrelated to professional things. You should avoid becoming too personal in social media. If you are being professional only recently, it is possible that potential buyers see your inappropriate past from pictures and videos. So, you need to be consistent and establish reliable social media presence from the start. You should be able to easily keep in touch with customers and you need to be fully aligned with the overall marketing plan. You should also be able to use technology to measure progress. The business world is moving fast and you need to be able to perform proper tracking task. The measurement will determine whether you are able to reach ROI in a proper manner. Marketing requires investment in terms of money, time and effort. So it is important that you are able to get results.
