why1 B2B v B2C Finally finally finally someone has done an exhaustive review of the differences between B2B and B2C business models and why they matter in setting out a social media strategy Many have tried including myself but the book just brings it all together and ties it up in a bow for you One nugget that caught my eye was how given the large number of influencers in B2B buying decisions you

research charts and case studies It s harder for B2Bs to find uality content all on three fronts in an ocean of consumer social media stats This book offers a tight catalog of examples to draw uponThere was one idea in the book that I vehemently disagree with The authors assertSocial marketing is not for every company Some businesses are so specialized or their markets so focused that they already know who all their customers and prospects are These companies are probably better off working their face to face channels than starting a blog There may be opportunities to influence the market through media coverage or customer service but the rewards are harder to findI can t agree Can any company be so foolish as to believe that a competitor won t use these new channels to get in front of their customers to secure their own face to face meetings Can any company be so confident in its management skills that disgruntled employees will never bash it in forums Can any company
