10 examples of great Disney marketing campaigns

There are two difficulties with a roundup like this - Disney is massive and it's often hard to disentangle product and marketing.

The company creates such strong stories/brands that all of its media can appear to work seamlessly.

Nevertheless, I've picked out some examples of what could be termed marketing expertise by the film juggernaut.


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’.

Three inspiring B2B marketing case studies

We get lots of request for examples of good B2B marketing, so here's a trio for you and all your family. 

For this post, I've been taking a look back at our shortlisted B2B entries from The Digitals awards, which were handed out last month.


Five tactics B2B companies can use to strengthen key customer relationships

Building a successful B2B business requires many things, from quality products and services to effective sales, marketing and distribution. But building a successful B2B business with staying power also typically requires something more: strong customer relationships.

In Econsultancy's State of Digital in MENA Report, some 20% of client-side companies and 42% of agencies said that a lack of understanding about online is preventing their organisation from investing more money in digital.
