Why Inbound Marketing?
Inbound marketing is the process of attracting customers to you by providing them with high quality, relevant content. This differs from traditional outbound marketing techniques, like commercials and cold calls, that aim to push a message out to anyone and everyone. When executed properly, inbound marketing is both more effective and less expensive than outbound.
An effective inbound strategy has the potential to turn total strangers into loyal advocates for your brand. How? Find out below.
Customer Journey- Your customer journey encompasses every step your customers take, from being total strangers to becoming advocates for your brand. Understanding this process will help you better engage with your audience and create more effective content.
Goals- The goals of your marketing strategy should align with your business objectives. Your goals also serve to keep you on track and measure your progress.
Channels- When it comes to channels and platforms, choose quality over quantity. Use your personas to decide which platforms are best for your business to utilize, then optimize your strategy around those.
Measure & Optimize- Marketing is, unfortunately, not a set-and-forget type of process. To maintain an effective strategy, get familiar with your analytics and use the information they provide to optimize and improve future campaigns.
