So what exactly is Inbound Marketing?

Inbound Marketing attracts highly targeted quality traffic to your website. It’s marketing activity that potential customers actively seek out or want to interact with and is typically done through SEO, blogging and Social Media. Traditionally, marketers would have employed cold calling, cold emails and untargeted ads to attract potential customers but these days it is far more beneficial to entice customers to your website by engaging with them through interesting content.  Basically, Inbound Marketing is all about creating marketing material that customers actually want to read!

The Inbound Marketing process

The key thing to successful Inbound Marketing is analysing your target market at a granular level. You therefore need to know exactly who your ideal customer is and understand what processes they go through when choosing your products or services. It is vital when marketing to these targeted individuals that your content is educational and engaging– it shouldn’t be about you and your business; it should be about offering them advice and useful information. That said it doesn’t matter how relevant and engaging your copy is – if you’re not getting it in front of the right people at the right time you’re wasting your efforts. Successful Inbound Marketing is therefore about knowing your customer and targeting them effectively via your website pages, blogs, social media, landing pages, calls-to-action and marketing emails.

Why does your business need Inbound Marketing?

Quality marketing produces quality leads, prospects and ultimately customers. Today’s consumers are much more savvy online than previous generations so to make sure you are appealing to the right people you need to ensure you are putting interesting, relevant and timely content in front of those of want (and need) it. Of course once you have attracted the right visitors to your website it’s important you continue to engage and market to them thereby developing a mutually beneficial relationship.

Can’t I do it myself? Do I really need an Inbound Marketing agency?

In theory yes, you could do it yourself. If you have the time and expertise it is possible to manage on your own and not employ the services of an Inbound Marketing company. However, the different elements of Inbound Marketing such as SEO, blogging and marketing emails require a certain level of specialism and bringing them all together to build a successful, integrated campaign is quite an undertaking  and one probably best done by a specialist Inbound Marketing company.
