The savvy industrial marketer who takes advantage of his competitors’s lack of know-how concerning digital opportunities, will emerge as the dominate brand in his industrial niche.
To achieve digital dominance, or a digital moat, takes total commitment from the C-suite and a commitment to change the way you view your buyer. It takes a TEAM.
The Repp Group takes a holistic approach and works with Partners that work best for you. Partners that achieve results. YOUR LEAD TEAM.
When you get down to it, there is probably little difference between your industrial products and your competitors’ in purely functional terms. Customer perception often determines why one is chosen over another. In the age of mobile, search & social, the brand customers feel best about wins. We partner with Maxwell+Miller so that your brand wins in the industrial marketplace.

Manufacturing Marketing Institute
They always say… two heads are better than one. I often talk to Bruce McDuffee, Executive Director at Manufacturing Marketing Institute. Bruce & I often produce helpful & informational podcasts at Bruce’s website. Like me, Bruce is an evangelist for B2B manufacturers to leverage the web for top-of-mind awareness and dramatic improvement in lead generation. If needed, I will bring Bruce to the table for the benefit of my industrial customers
Bruce has also written a book that every B2B manufacturer should read, The New Way to Market for Manufacturing.

If industrial owners realize something has to change, I always recommend Steve Cummings at SPC Consulting, a former President and CEO for industrial. Steve will become your trusted partner and bring an unbiased look, offer suggestions and guide you through change and move your industrial business ahead.
Even for the industrial market, great positions on the search engine return page can have a dramatic effect on your company’s top-of-mind awareness and brand message.
One of the quickest ways to achieve top positions on Google is by using social media, particularly Linkedin and twitter. The only way to manage all that content and inevitable responses is to use social management software such as Hootsuite/
