B2B Nation is a podcast from TechnologyAdvice that shares expert opinions and advice for B2B marketing professionals. Listen along as Director of Custom Content Mike Pastore sits down with entrepreneurs, CEOs, and thought leaders to learn about the complex avenues available to B2B marketers.
Content marketing is one of the most popular and effective marketing tactics in B2B, but has the content evolved to keep up with the audiences?
Experiences and interactivity are more commonly found in B2C marketing efforts where the audience is large and the resources are often more plentiful than in the B2B space. It’s simply difficult to justify the cost of the developers and designers needed to create interactive experiences.
Juan Rubio is the CEO and co-founder at Genially, a platform that allows users to create interactive experiences without the need to code or have a deep understanding of design. The idea for Genially came from Juan’s background as a biologist, where he longed for affordable tools that made complex topics like climate change and green energy easier to understand.
