B2C Lessons for B2B Brands
Event on 2015-08-26 18:00:00
Are B2C and B2B marketing strategies really all that different? How about we discuss it over some pizza? Why let B2C brand managers have all the creative fun? B2B doesn't have to be dull. B2C and B2B marketing strategies are more similar than you might think, so let's leverage that to learn from one another. Join us for an informative and delicious (pizza and salad will be served) after-work learning and networking event that explores how B2C "success story insights" can be strategically useful to B2B marketers. This event is NOT a lecture, it's interactive. First, we'll have a lively panel discussion with some consumer marketing practioners. Then, we’ll all team up into breakout groups for some practical business simulation exercises. Who should attend? YOU, if you’ve ever asked these questions…. How do I differentiate my business from the competition? I know I need a brand to differentiate my business, but how? We need to improve our brand, but where do we start? We have a unique value proposition, but how do I tell my customers? You will do some great networking, learn some tricks to promote your company and have fun!
