#39, Winning the battle for B2B brand awareness budget

Effective marketing and PR works primarily by reaching the 95% of customers who are not yet in-market, increasing the odds your brand gets remembered when those customers do decide to buy.

Babel director Simon Coughlin discusses the issue with Chrissy Tansey from Babel client Doit, Jon Lombardo, who until recently was the  Global Head of Research at Linkedin’s B2B Institute, and Babel campaign director Holly Abbott, who outlines some of the best tactics to help your brand raise awareness to ensure you are front of mind when your target audience makes a purchasing decision.  Digital Communicators is a podcast from Babel, a leading technology PR agency.
