Social media is a challenge for B2B businesses. It's not always like you can hire an attractive Instagram influencer to showcase your product and generate some buzz. So it's difficult to figure out what to talk about because why would your audience be excited about what you're selling? That's the million dollar question.

But experts say, the difference between B2B and B2C has slowly diminished. Whether you're selling direct to consumers or to businesses, people are people. No one is immune to a unique, human brand, fresh colors, and pure WIIFM value.

These B2B professional service brands are nailing it. 👇

Madou Vandromme Accountancy

The Madou Vandromme Accountancy is hits all the right notes. They're not trying to be quirky or over reaching with their brand. They're just brilliantly using what they have: their expertise.

Their social media feed is a full of the right things you want to hear from your accounting firm at the right times.

Providing real value to consumers with their Timely tips & news

Keeping up with changing regulations is tough work. So this company took it upon itself to keep people informed about the most important changes AND simplified it for them.

The best part? They keep it simple. The image isn't heavy on the branding. There is usually no link, unless important. The caption contains all the good stuff. It is a slightly long explanation but worth reading. So more often than not, people click See More, and that indicates to Facebook that people like this piece of content.

Like a lot of professional services, for Madou Vandromme Accountancy their experts are one of their biggest assets. So they put them front and central. They put their faces and their voice in the post and write it like a letter so it feels even more personal.

It is great for their experts who feel validated, and their audience who can count on the people that make up the business.

Slack

Slack has one of the most entertaining social media feeds to follow.

They keep it light and fun

...and they know how to stand out. For instance this rather weird marketing stunt that they pulled last week that had everyone asking...

Love it or hate it, they turned a few heads. But that might not always be the right approach for an expertise-driven business.

Here's what is..

Engaging with their audience

They encourage their audience to interact with them. And they practice what they preach. They respond to people who comment on their posts....

...as well as people who mention them anywhere else on social media. They have an active social media listening and community management team that makes sure mentions of their name on social media don't go unheard.

That adds to their visibility. Every time they comment on a post, they show up in people's social media feeds.

Putting their people first

Slack is pioneering remote work, but they're not luring you in by making you read a dozen advantages of it. They're using their employees and interns as examples. 10 happy faces say more than 10 Reasons You Should Switch to Remote Work. A picture is worth..yada yada. You get it.

AJ&Smart

As a consultancy, AJ&Smart sets the bar incredibly high. They do an incredible job with their thought-leadership.

Valuable content + Easy on the eyes

AJ&Smart has a strong visual brand. Their carousels are vibrant, packed with information, and displayed in a way a 10 year old can understand. And that is powerful.

PDF carousels are the most engaged with content on Linkedin at the moment, and they take full advantage of that fact.

They tell relatable stories

They're not afraid of the difficult conversations

True value is being able to make difficult conversations easy for businesses.
