MILWAUKEE – April 18, 2006 – Scheibel Halaska Inc., one of Milwaukee’s fastest growing business-to-business marketing communications firms, has launched Inside B-to-B Marketing, a blog designed to share fresh perspectives on issues related to marketing the business-to-business enterprise.

“We saw an opening for an online dialogue aimed at helping business-to-business enterprises fully leverage strategic marketing and communications,” said Mike Stefaniak, partner and vice president of client services for Scheibel Halaska. “The blog will cover everything from how to translate effective marketing communications into increased enterprise value, to the do’s and don’ts of B-to-B branding, to what works and what doesn’t in strategic public relations, and more.”

A February 2006 survey by the Business Marketing Association indicates spending on branding initiatives by B-to-B enterprises has increased more than 12 percent over the past two years. Stefaniak said this trend is partly behind Scheibel Halaska’s decision to launch the Inside B-to-B Marketing blog.

“Fierce global competition and the accelerated commoditization of products and services have driven companies of all sizes to take a new look at the impact brand-based communications can have on their most critical business objectives,” said Stefaniak. “As such, Inside B-to-B Marketing offers fresh insights that professionals in a variety of roles can translate into improved business performance.”
