What is inbound marketing?

Inbound marketing is a method of attracting clients and prospects to you rather than chasing after them or trying to interrupt them with cold calls, ads or cold emails. It involves creating compelling content which is aimed at your ideal customers, and then using marketing automation to turn website visitors into leads and nurturing them to become customers. It is a method used by thousands of businesses around the world, and is shown to generate leads at a fraction of the cost of more traditional, outbound marketing techniques.

Inbound Marketing is all about giving your buyers the right content in the right context:

Content

Think of your business as a publisher. Creating articles, e-books, videos, images and other media tools, that are either useful or entertaining to your target market. Convincing them to want to share

Context

Delivering this content should be personalised and targeted depending on location, device, demographics or past behaviour. Think of the personalised recommendations you get when logging in to your Amazon account. They are in the context of your previous purchases.
