If you still need convincing that you should be using Twitter for B2B Marketing, I could be glib and ask what the ROI of your phone is, but instead I will point you to this post over at B2B Online Marketing.

Our previous post on How to Run a Social Media Marketing Campaign ended with the promise that we would follow it with specific advice on how to use the more popular social platforms for B2B. This post introduces you to a series we intend to publish, beginning today, covering the micro-blogging service Twitter.

- How to run a B2B Twitter Campaign, Part 2. covers the Do, Measure and Repeat stages of the process and includes some information on the metrics of Twitter: B2B Key Performance Indicators and how you can set them, measure them, and use them to influence future strategy. Part 2 will be posted on Monday, May 10th.
