Inbound Marketing

What is Inbound Marketing and Why is it So Effective?

The more simple explanation is that inbound marketing is the promotion of your products and services using quality custom content. Inbound is any web marketing that causes the customer to come to you. Instead of aggressively chasing leads, you are drawing customers using content that includes blog posts, articles, video, ebooks, infographics, and more.

Why You Need Inbound Marketing

Traditional marketing can be intrusive. We're bombarded with it every day, and eventually, we learn to tune it out. When you create the framework for an inbound campaign, on the other hand, you wait until the customer is ready to come to you. They may simply be curious about products like yours and wondering if your offerings are something that can enhance their lives. Or, they could be ready to buy and looking for the information that will help them make their final decision on which product they will buy. 

When you create an inbound campaign, you can create content that appeals to people who are at every stage of their buyer's journey. Your well-written and compelling content can inform and educate potential customers, positioning your company as an industry authority. It can help gently form an impression that will build the trust needed for a fruitful relationship. When web marketers choose an inbound strategy, they increase lead conversion as much as 400%. Inbound content marketing allows you to build and nurture an engaged audience that converts to loyal fans of your brand.

When you engage in inbound, quality SEO is a side effect. Google has always been upfront about their preference for reader-oriented, useful material. Give them that, and they will reward you with higher visibility. And, this visibility attracts more customers, which, in turn, helps you get seen by even more prospects.
