REGISTER for Best B2B Social Practices TODAY!

DESCRIPTION: Businesses that deal with other businesses do not have the multitudes of social media-active consumers who are pushing retail companies to change the way they buy and sell through more social contact and personal interaction – to behave like people as they interact with people. But the Web is now a social “place” and the potential gains of learning to adapt to its tools and environments at all levels of business now significantly outweigh the risks. Social media for the B2B company  is transparent, fluid, conversational and based on trust. Its best practices differ from those in the B2C world, but there are some important lessons that B2B companies can learn from retail to modernize their customer interaction faster than the competition.
