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.

Old vs. New Marketing Tactics

Traditional marketing tactics include advertising, PR, trade shows and exhibitions, and hiring salespeople to cold call. What’s wrong with that? Nothing, except modern customers tend to avoid these strategies of engagement!

  • Websites
  • Social media
  • YouTube
  • Blogs and articles

These are the tools of Inbound Marketing.

Inbound marketing is a philosophy, and a methodology, which is about giving your buyers what they want, when they want it. It involves four steps:

Attract

Creating online content which acts as a magnet, drawing targeted prospects to your website

Convert

Using landing pages with compelling offers to give you a regular flow of leads

Close

Nurturing your leads with marketing automation and giving your sales team qualified opportunities with insight which they can convert

Delight

Convincing customers to become advocates, building loyalty and leading to referrals

Content + Context

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.

Thinking Of Going 0-100 In 6 Seconds With Your Digital Marketing Strategy?

New generation marketing strategies are the best way to supercharge your business. Whether you’re diversifying into a new market or strengthening your current client base, there isn’t currently a better way of getting the results you need. However, it’s important to take a considered approach to marketing, rather than trying to rush to the finish line. Trying to go from 0 to 100 in six seconds is as likely to leave you with a burnt-out engine or careening off the road as it is to get you to your destination.

The Importance Of Targeting The Right Audience (And How To Do It)

Marketing is only effective if you target the right audience. If you market to the wrong people, your content will fall on deaf ears – for no other reason than they don’t need your services, or aren’t in a position to purchase them. There’s no point trying to appeal to everyone – only people who have a definite interest in what you sell. This is why it’s so important to understand who your ideal customers are, what they’re searching for online, and how you can be found by them.
