What is WeChat marketing

B2C and B2B marketing in WeChat marketing

In WeChat marketing, we usually involve two marketing strategies, B2C and B2B. B2C marketing is a marketing activity carried out by consumers facing enterprises and targeting end customers. B2B marketing is an enterprise-oriented business-to-business promotion and promotion of products and services between enterprises with the core of negotiating and facilitating transactions.

How to target corporate customers in WeChat

Targeting corporate customers on WeChat requires some practical experience and skills, here are some suggestions that may help:

1. Highlight product features and advantages

Enterprise customers pay more attention to whether their needs can be met. Therefore, when positioning the market, they need to clarify the characteristics of their products and services, and carry out targeted marketing. Highlight the key points and advantages of products in marketing to help corporate customers better understand their products and services.

2. Create personalized interactions

Creating personalized interactions can make business customers feel cared for and help build good relationships. This requires establishing tailor-made engagement plans, for example by offering customized solutions, co-creating marketing plans and co-creating promotional campaigns.

3. Track potential customers

Use WeChat official account and chat tools to track and manage potential corporate customers. On these platforms, by adding potential customers as friends, it is possible to automatically push information with enterprise product characteristics and increase sales opportunities. At the same time, follow up the user’s feedback in time to maintain customer relationship.

4. Discover connections

In WeChat B2B marketing, personal connections are crucial. Through personal connections, companies can better understand market forecast trends, understand the needs and behaviors of potential customers, and provide valuable background information for marketing activities. For B2B marketing, companies must establish good contacts and relationships, which can be achieved by communicating with industry experts and interacting with related companies and institutions.

5. Design a professional WeChat marketing plan

Finally, it is recommended to formulate a complete WeChat marketing plan, which should include multiple aspects according to the actual situation of the enterprise, such as market summary and research, marketing strategy, channel promotion, content marketing and consumer guidance, etc., and at the same time reflect the corporate marketing. Only in this way can we truly establish our own WeChat marketing brand.

Some misunderstandings about WeChat marketing

In WeChat marketing activities, many people will have the following misunderstandings.

The first misunderstanding is to only focus on the product itself and ignore the user experience. The purpose of product promotion is to make users willing to buy and use it. If the user experience is ignored in product promotion, the effect of the activity will be greatly reduced.

The second misunderstanding is to only focus on the release of information and ignore the interaction. If the enterprise only releases information, then this kind of one-way communication has no real interaction, which is not conducive to the promotion and deepening of lottery marketing.

The third mistake is to only set a short-term goal, instead of taking into account the long-term plan. The long-term value of marketing is far greater than the short-term sales results. In order to achieve long-term marketing effects, it should be considered in the long run.
