Show Notes

Quick one before we get into the usual pleasantries…

This interview is a bit different to other episodes of B2B Better. 

More guests, more narrative, more music. More… quality (in my humble opinion)

If you are a regular listener to B2B Better it would mean the world if you could share your feedback on whether you prefer the new format or not. Just send me an email - jason@b2b-better.com

And if you’ve never listened to the podcast - this would be the episode to start. 

I’m pretty proud of it.


In this episode, I sit down with VILPE - a speciality roofing ventilation equipment manufacturer based out of Finland.

We talked about exhibiting at expensive trade shows, how to not send rubbish cold emails and... just kidding. We spoke about TikTok.

Why? Because they have built a following of 80,000 followers in under 12 months. And it's starting to yield some awe-inspiring business results. 

This is a story of rejecting the status quo in how to win new business even in traditional industries. 

We covered: 

  • What are the three core principles of building a successful TikTok strategy?
  • How did VILPE jump from 20k to 80k followers in eight weeks? 
  • What business results have they seen? (hint - they have never had more job applications)
