The ultimate ecommerce CRO & UX case study: RS Components

RS Components is an ecommerce behemoth.

The only online B2B case study template you’ll ever need

Case studies can be an effective way to build credibility and persuade potential customers to work with you, particularly in the B2B world where products and services can be complex and not necessarily ‘sexy’.

PPC ads: should you bid on a competitor's name?

Picture the scene. You type your company’s name into Google and the top two results are competitors who have taken ads out in your name.

How social media can help with recruitment

If there is one thing job candidates are becoming better and faster at, that’s gathering information on social media about companies they might want to work for. 

From friends of friends who work at an organisation, to Instagram photos showcasing glimpses of company’s culture & life, there are a number of ways for recruits to find out more about their future employer.


Three insights into B2B marketing from our trends report

The forces that have reshaped the consumer sector are increasing in B2B, demanding that marketers respond with a new emphasis on the customer experience. 

Our new report B2B Digital Trends, conducted in partnership with Adobe, explores the practical and philosophical shift occurring in business-to-business marketing.

Although every industry is changing at its own pace, there is universal movement toward an approach that looks more and more like consumer marketing.

The report looks at B2B in general and more specifically at the healthcare, manufacturing, technology and professional services industries.

In this post we’ll highlight three takeaways around the B2B shift toward customer experience…

Three sales enablement marketing techniques

Content is dead. Long live the conversation.

Does content marketing need to evolve so it doesn’t go the way of the humble pager?

We marketers talk about content and storytelling a lot, but we may have taken our eyes off the most important thing of all: what our customers think.
