WHY DO I NEED AN INBOUND MARKETING AGENCY?

Inbound Marketing

In today’s world, it’s becoming increasingly harder for your business to get its message out into the marketplace. Gone are the days where outbound marketers could barrage customers with ads, cold calls and emails - and expect high levels of response. Today’s prospect is too busy to answer cold calls between nine and five and also has the means to tune out these attempts to interrupt.

If they are looking for a business service or a solution to a problem, they are probably doing their research and understanding the option available well before they want to engage with a salesperson. 

Thanks to the internet, there are now a variety of ways your business can promote itself online, helping it to be found by interested prospects, but that also applies to every other business.

Therefore, in order to stand out online, and capture the attention of your ideal prospects, to interact with them and to raise your business profile, you need to look for more effective alternatives.

And that’s where Inbound Marketing comes in.

But what is Inbound Marketing?

HubSpot’s Brian Halligan coined the term in 2005 as a marketing methodology where attention – and sales interest – is earned by drawing customers to the brand’s website through producing interesting content, such as blogs, social media marketing, media coverage, e-books, case studies and other forms of content marketing.

HubSpot also asserts that Inbound Marketing is especially effective for businesses that deal with high value, long research-based sales cycles and knowledge-based products and services. In these areas, prospects are more likely to want to educate themselves and work with someone who demonstrates the appropriate levels of expertise.

Inbound Marketing techniques are therefore seen as the antidote to the shifting world of B2B marketing and are repeatedly shown to be more effective than their outbound marketing counterparts such as telemarketing, direct mail, broadcast advertising and even some forms of email marketing.

The Inbound Marketing methodology is broken down into four stages:

ATTRACT

You attract your ideal prospects to your website through tailored, targeted content, which answers your prospects’ questions, helps to show them how to solve their business problems and demonstrates your understanding of their business.

CONVERT

Once on your website, you will encourage your prospect to interact with you by offering them an asset of educational value. You use calls to action to convert them into sales enquiries – and you use landing pages to gather information about their business and the problems that they are looking to solve.

CLOSE

In moving your prospects down the sales funnel, you need to nurture their interest by providing them with relevant information and educating them. This process is associated with lead scoring to allow you to understand those who are ready to engage. Lead scoring allows you to focus you precious sales resource.

DELIGHT

Once the sale is closed, the relationship with your customer is only just beginning. Marketing Automation tools allow you to automate the process of regular customer contact to support your customer service and delight your customers. Happy customers like to share their successful relationships.
