Branding has always been about much more than logos and graphics. It comprises the total experience customers and prospects have with your company. By adding newer, richer choices, today’s new communications technologies – everything from blogs and podcasts to wikis and mobile – are changing the fundamental basis of business-to-business marketing. Almost daily. While some are saying that branding is no longer relevant in that increasingly fragmented media world, we believe branding actually is more important than ever. In fact, it’s critical to your success.

A key difference between consumer and business-to-business branding is the influence of selling channels, including sales reps, dealers and distributors. While many consumer products are also sold through a channel, the marketer generally reaches past the channel with branding messages, relegating the channel to the status of a local point of sale. By contrast, in many B-to-B markets, the local dealer or distributor really “owns” the end customer and can control access and communications to and from the customer.

While marketers usually look first to customer facing applications when making technology acquisitions, taking into account the entire marketing value chain--from strategic brief to a personalized communication--is the best way to look at achieving marketing ROI. Too often, investments in customer facing technology fail to account for operational burdens created upstream in the marketing process.

Mass mailing, mass emails or SMS blasts - ask any business to consumer(B2C) marketing professional what they think of them and they will probably tell you there's been a shift away from such indiscriminate approaches in favor of more targeted campaigns. And they'll tell you that the main reason for this shift is that customers are more demanding; asking to be recognized as individuals and expecting communications to be relevant to their unique lifestyles, wants and needs.

Sixteen years ago, Seth Godin wrote one of my favorite industry books, Permission Marketing, which would prove to be eerily prophetic. Godin advocated a revolutionary approach to “turning strangers into friends and friends into customers” by eschewing traditional unsolicited marketing communications. Instead, he suggested that companies “date” their customers – first offering incentives to engage (essentially asking for permission to interact, possibly with a freebie or discount), then using the knowledge gleaned from those interactions to speak to customers as friends.

Employees expect a similar experience with a Service Catalog. An effective business service catalog captures employee needs and communicates negotiated service offerings and service level agreements. However, hitting service level targets requires more than just listing services. It’s essential to provide an automated self-service portal and open communication.

Businesses must become agile and provide differentiated service as customer demands and expectations change. Moving beyond simple phone transactions, customers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to their peers, the web and social media to find answers. Contact centers play a major role in determining the customer’s perception of a company. Often seen as brand ambassadors, agents are the main interaction point for customers. It is therefore critical that they deliver personalized communications in the channels that customers prefer. Businesses should use cloud technology to add multichannel tools and support growing demand for chat, social, SMS and video
