Over 50 agencies across the world have already registered their social media services in the last month and it is hoped that the directory will continue to grow.
Heather Baker, Managing Director of TopLine Communications, and editor of the B2B Guide, commented:
I would like the blog to be the ultimate resource for anyone in a B2B industry who wants to make the most of the many opportunities for publicity, research, new business development and knowledge sharing offered by social networking. As a social media agency ourselves, we have come across many B2B organisations that struggle to find the right supplier to help them create and launch their social strategy. The global directory should make this process easier by enabling them to browse through a list of suppliers and compare them on merit.
Our collection of social media statistics the most comprehensive on the web – has proved highly popular, helping the blog attract a monthly readership of over 8,000 people. We are also delighted that the blog has been nominated for Best Business Blog 2011 by the Some Comms media awards.
The B2B Guide to Social Media aims to be the definitive resource on how organisations in B2B markets can harness the power of Web 2.0. It provides B2B marketers with practical advice on using social media, offers the largest collection of social media statistics available on the web, and hosts a global directory of social media agencies. Visitors to the blog will also find B2B social media examples and case studies, with best practice recognised in the B2B Blog of the Week and the B2B Infographic of the Week sections. The blog has recently been nominated for Best Business Blog 2011 by the Some Comms media awards.
