Is Linkedin the only place to advertise B2B marketing or should I focus on others too?

11 replies
Hey guys,

I'm targeting financial advisors for marketing services and wanted to ask if I should stick to Linkedin (mainly its relevant groups) or also focus on Youtube video marketing and Facebook groups for this B2B niche?

To be honest I'm not yet comfortable with the lay of the land on Linkedin and not sure if spreading content on it is "enough."

On the other hand I get Youtube channnels. It doesn't feel very business oriented though. Facebook Groups may be a good place for reposting content that I make for Linkedin. And Twitter I may post to although I don't have a following in my target niche.

Just curious where you guys suggest I best spend my time? Thanks

    It think it is better to go with LinkedIN because you can target financial advisors directly. Every penny you spend would be worth spending since it is very targeted and niche.

      I thought you could also target by job type on Facebook?

    Go to Google, type in: sites like
    Follow that with Linked in or any other site like that and you'll get a list.

    Then, type in: financial advisor forums
    Or other places they would hang out and you should find places.

    I also seek b2b lead gen and click thru traffic and, while my 'niche' is far larger, I find it VERY difficult, short of *buying a list*, which I do NOT want to do (SUPER expensive for my target). Worse still, I am pretty sure LinkedIn, FB, and others are not yet catering to this target, so I would be interested in seeing your results...

    Email Marketing is best way to reach Financial decision makers. Purchase Email List from Reputed company to Market your products directly to financial advisers. Before buying list try free samples to check quality. It is very effective.
