Think Outside the LinkedIn Box For B2B Social Lead Gen [Infographic]

How social is B2B

I can almost smell the skepticism from here. Are you an old-school marketer, a fence sitter, stubborn or just late to the game? If you’re a B2B marketer, you need to think outside of the obvious, LinkedIn – which is great ‘n’ all, but your real denial is when people start saying you should use Twitter and Facebook to generate or close more leads.

Well, the proof is in the pudding, or in this case stats. There is a ton of useful data in this infographic, so digest it, believe it, use it to convince your boss it’s worth your time.

» Don’t forget to use the tweetable stats and quotes at the bottom of the page so you can sound super smart on Twitter.

There are also a couple of links at the end that will help you dig a little deeper into how to get started using social media for finding and nurturing your leads.
