Because B2B advertising is not just to attract users, it is also a brand symbol. B2B creative advertising is not just a beautiful picture or an interesting video. The most important thing is to show the brand and attract potential customers. Although B2B advertising is difficult to generate a lot of exposure, there are many successful cases.

Creative ideas that move people are the key to successful advertising. Here are the excellent B2B advertising ideas I found from BigSpy, and do the following analysis of the advertising ideas:
1.High-quality original content
No matter how beautifully designed a B2B creative is, it is always high-quality content that can really impress customers. High-quality content will always be loved by users. Brands that keep outputting high-quality content will attract more potential customers and increase customer trust in the brand.
When searching for Facebook ads of B2B companies in BigSpy, we will find that there are two common content marketing methods for most companies.,such as:
- Promote some high-quality blogs directly.
- Have a forum to share industry knowledge.
Case: Microsoft’s Facebook advertising content is mainly the team’s regular knowledge sharing. Whether it is an online or offline knowledge sharing meeting, on the one hand, you can shorten the distance between the brand and the user; on the other hand, you can better understand the needs of users, solve the problems that users care about, and better retain users.
When conducting B2B marketing promotion, rather than looking for more accurate users, what the brand needs to do is to show itself and tell users its business content. Brand marketing is something that needs to be done for a long time. In the process, more and more consumers will be recognized and understood by the brand through the brand, which will increase consumer trust in their brand. When creating a Facebook ad creative, a brand can promote its brand in the form of a video.
Case: Shopify has been running a branding video on Facebook since 2018. This video is 14 seconds long and the video theme explains how Shopify can help users make money. The video uses 5 steps to show users how to use Shopify and what Shopify can do for users.
From the analysis of BigSpy‘s B2B creatives, whether it is large enterprises or small and medium-sized enterprises, 70% of corporate advertising creatives include brand introductions. Regarding brand introduction as advertising content, although it is a common advertising idea, if simple content wants to impress users, it is necessary to accurately grasp the user’s psychology. It is better to write brand introduction from the user’s perspective.
The benefits of using brand introduction as a creative: The use of brand introduction in the content of advertising ideas allows users to understand the product faster, clear the brand business content, and deepen the user’s impression.
3.Customer testimonials – KOL marketing
In modern society, B2B corporate marketing, compared with the self-promotion of official accounts, the evaluation of real customers is far more impressing to users. The marketing value of KOL is being valued. Today, as people are accustomed to traditional advertising, KOL’s unique personality charm has attracted a lot of fans, and more and more brands have benefited from it.
Case: Huawei is a leading Internet company in various fields such as communications, operators, the Internet of Things, enterprise customers, mobile phone R & D, and cloud. How did Huawei become famous from a Chinese brand to the world in just a few years? Huawei’s Facebook advertising marketing is not just to promote products. It also invited multiple stars and influencers to promote it and joined KOL marketing. Compared with the company’s own propaganda, it is better to invite some influential people to propagate it.

Accurate user positioning is more conducive to advertising marketing.In BigSpy, you can see the basic information such as the country, age, and gender of each advertising audience.
