關於VDC Research


Presence on one or more social media platforms is becoming a requirement for B2B companies across the board. AutoID and Data Capture (AIDC) solution providers are also starting to establish, maintain, and manage their social media engagements to better serve the needs of their target audiences, and social media is fast becoming an integral part of every organization's digital marketing strategy. This report explores how some of the leading and emerging AIDC vendors and integrators are currently using these platforms and provides VDC's recommendation as some of the best practices to maximize ROI.

Speed Read

  • Social media is an integral part of organizations' overall digital marketing strategy, which also includes search engine optimization, email marketing, and online banner advertising
  • Fast emerging as an opportunity for AIDC solution providers to earn customers' (and, potentially, partners') trust by being the platform-of-choice to deliver useful, highly valuable content
  • Leading vendors starting to take steps by hiring talent exclusively dedicated to managing content creation for these platforms and having targeted, specific, and measurable goals outlined for social media engagement
  • Short-term returns associated with social media activities may be limited but consistently posting the right type of content for the target audience (on each individual platform) will help generate an attractive ROI

The Situation

Over the past three years, social media has taken the B2B industry by storm. Social media strategy, which once singularly dominated the B2C marketing playground, is now relevant across all sectors. IT technicians and purchase decision-makers are increasingly influenced by a brand's market messaging on online platforms. Social media is an integral part of organizations' overall digital marketing strategies, which also include search engine optimization, email marketing, and online banner advertising. These platforms have pushed the boundaries from individual interactions to envelope business relations and now serve as an essential "external ring" of gravity on the web, drawing in engagements through different networks to an organization's "internal ring" of self-produced content, which comprises blogs, forums, webinars, and product portfolios. In return, customers have the opportunity to engage with brands and communicate based on requirements.


Within the Auto ID space, leading vendors and brands have been using the four primary social media platforms-Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn-for several months, if not years. Organizations seek to stand out from the crowd and create a notable voice online, where technical professionals spend a considerable amount of time conducting research prior to making purchase decisions. Social media is fast becoming an opportunity to earn customers' (and, potentially, partners') trust as the platform-of-choice to deliver useful, highly valuable content.
