B2B Virtual Roundtables

B2B Virtual Roundtables

Following the success of our Autumn 2020 series, OST founder & MD Luke Brynley-Jones will be hosting 7 more virtual roundtables – via Zoom – through the first part of 2021.

Focusing on one core B2B marketing topic per session, each event will be around 90 minutes long and will feature an introduction from a specialist on the subject. Our aim is to then facilitate peer-to-peer sharing for marketers of different experience levels.

Given that physical networking has been restricted, the roundtables have already proven to be a great opportunity for marketers to collaborate. Spaces are free but they are limited, so be sure to register your interest via the form and we’ll look forward to seeing you there!

B2B Content Marketing: How to Create Memorable B2B Experiences

B2B companies often fail to humanise their corporate identity in their marketing. The result is often dull and forgettable. But change is coming. Upstart companies, lacking corporate ‘baggage’, are creating refreshing, eye-catching and memorable content. Some are using AR/VR to provide 3D virtual sales expos, while others are shedding product marketing strategies to explain not just how they do it, but why. Join us for this fascinating expert-led discussion on how to make B2B truly memorable.

B2B Employee Advocacy: How to Create an Effective Programme

The staff of B2B businesses have, on average, ten times more social media connections than the company itself. They also tend to be well connected with people in the same industry. Yet only a small percentage of B2B companies run formal Staff Advocacy Programmes. In this expert-led discussion, citing B2B case studies, we will explore the challenges and opportunities of creating an advocacy programme.

B2B Social Media: How to Create a Localised International Presence

Many international companies only offer social media in English. While English may be the global language of business, this approach flies against one of the first principles of marketing: speak your customers’ language. In our experience, localising your social media – by language and culture – increases engagement by up to 500%. In this insightful, expert-led discussion, we explore how to create a genuinely localised international social media presence that drives business value.

20th July 2021

LinkedIn for B2B: Developing An Effective LinkedIn Strategy

Making the most of LinkedIn should be among the top marketing priorities for any B2B company. Over 50% of B2B decision-makers cite LinkedIn as a source of insight and, on average, 50% of B2B blog post traffic now comes from LinkedIn. With new opportunities, such as LinkedIn Live video posts and LinkedIn Events, smart B2B marketers are building LinkedIn into their content marketing and advertising strategies. Join us for this fascinating expert-led discussion about how to maximise the value of LinkedIn.

Social Media for Regulated Industries: Challenges & Opportunities

Highly regulated industries, such as finance, pharmaceuticals, telecoms and energy, have often shied away from social media. And yet, the hurdles to developing a valuable social media presence in these sectors are not significant. Recent ASA and CMA rulings have upped standards across social media, such that, if many cases, sector-specific regulations are now less onerous than those adhered to by retailers and the media. In this insightful discussion, we’ll explore how to develop a strong social media presence within a regulated industry.
