2013: B2B Media + Marketing Sites im Web

Zum Jahresende war die Reihenfolge der Media & Marketing Portale nach Online-Visits (IVW) wieder klar. wuv.de (Süddeutscher Verlag) hatte - auch mittels Mobile im September mit dem Mobile Angebot - meedia.de ((VG Handelsblatt, Holtzbrinck)) deutlich überholt und liegt im Dezember nur noch knapp hinter meedia.de. Horizont.net (dfv Mediengruppe) ist nicht viel eingefallen und dümpelt vor sich hin.

Mal sehen ob der Relaunch von meedia.de heute etwas bringt - auf mich wirkt die neue meedia.de eher bescheiden, ohne überzeugenden USP, ohne Raketenantrieb ...

Studie: Was Marketer sich von ihren B2B Medienpartner wünschen: Marketing Services

Schon im Zusammenhang mit dem Kongress der Deutschen Fachpresse 2011 und der ABM Annual Conference 2011, Austin, TX hatte ich mich gewundert, dass Fachmedien (und ihr Interessenverband) in Deutschland mit den wachsenden Budgets der Unternehmen im Bereich Marketing Services so wenig anfangen können. Ganze 5,6 % ihres Umsatzes machen laut Fachpressestatistik 2010 mit Dienstleistungen (inkl. Marketing Dienstleistungen).

Jetzt hat B2B Online den Report veröffentlicht und bietet ihn für 149 USD (rd. 103,50 EUR) hier an.

Der B2BOnline-Report beantwortet - basierend auf 280 ausgewerteten Antworten - was Fachmedien interessiert, interessieren sollte. Unter anderem

- ziehen Marketer B2B Medienunternehmen als Dienstleister für Marketing Services grundsätzlich in Erwägung?
- welches sind die am häufigsten nachgefragten Marketing Services?
- wie schätzen Marketers die Effektivität des Einsatzes von B2B Medien-Partner für Marketing-Services ein?
- welche Marketing-Services werden bereits von Medien-Partnern angeboten?
- was ist der wichtigste Grund für Marketer für Marketing Services von einer traditionellen Agentur zu einem B2B Medien-Unternehmen zu wechseln?

Aus den Ergebnissen:

Am meisten schätzen Marketer an B2B Medien als Marketing-Dienstleistungspartner wegen

66 % des erwarteten R.O.I.
49 % des Zugangs zur Zielgruppe
36 % des Wissens um die Zielgruppe

In den letzten 12 Monaten hatten 55 % der Befragten B2B Medienunternehmen für Marketing Services in Anspruch genommen. 53% für Lead Generation, 47% für eMail Marketing. Den größten Wert einer Zusammenarbeit mit den Fachmedien sehen die Befragten

38 % Lead Generation
32 % Entwicklung von Anzeigen (Print)
32 % Mitwirkung bei der Suchmaschinen-Optimierung
31 % Entwicklung von Banneranzeigen
31 % eMail-Marketing

Content Marketing Like a Pro

Unternehmen und Organisationen machen heute genau dass, was Verleger (bisher) auch tun. Sie publizieren und verbreiten Inhalte und bieten Marketing-Services an. Egal ob Kundenmagazine, Website, Direct Marketing, Newsletter, ePapers, Lead Generation, SEM/SEO, Blogs, Webinare, Videocasts, Events, Social Media Pages und Networks, Market Intelligence, usw.

Der Unterschied liegt im Ansatz der Monetarisierung. Die Verlage finanzieren sich über bezahlte und/oder gesponserte Inhalte sowie die Mediabudgets der Werbetreibenden und die Unternehmen und Organisationen über den Verkauf von Produkten und Dienstleistungen sowie dem Marketing- und Verkaufsförderungsbudget des Unternehmens.

Unternehmen und Organisationen brauchen dafür eigenes und fremdes Know-how und eigene oder fremde Ressourcen. Da könnten die Verlage und insbesondere B2B Verlage, gebeutelt vom Nullwachstum oder/und Rückgang der Werbeeinnahmen als Dienstleister ihre Expertise und Dienste anbieten, tun dies aber nur sehr zögerlich oder mit der Maßgabe, dass bisherige Angebote sakrosankt sind und in keinem Fall einer Gefahr ausgesetzt werden dürfen.

Diesen Raum (von Lücke kann man da nur noch verniedlichend sprechen) haben verlagsfremde Anbieter längst genutzt und was viele Verlage ohne Rücksicht auf Kosten und Sinn versuchen zusammenzuhalten, ist längst dilutet und die Budgets anderweitig verteilt.

Und nun? Wie gehts, wenn sich die (B2B) Verlage weiter standhaft verweigern oder zu vernünftigen Angeboten gezwungen werden müssen?

Verlage: Von unseren überzeugten, zufriedenen Kunden nehmen wir doch kein Geld

eWann begreifen Verlage, dass es wenig Sinn macht denen, die von der Qualität & Relevanz der Produkte & Services überzeugt sind, die "Zukunft" Digitale Produkte und Services zu schenken und von denen die nicht überzeugt sind, als Bestrafung gewissermaßen, Eintrittsgeld zu verlangen?

Nach der aktuellen Digital Journalism Survey 2010 Studie bieten knapp 1/3 der Medien ihren Print-Abonnenten noch immer einen "geschenkten" Online-Zugang ...
