Inbound Marketing is defined as a marketing strategy where businesses implement tactics to “get found”, or as we say, “get spotted” by customers. Inbound Marketing involves creating and providing valuable content for your customers, promoting your remarkable content, building customer relationships, and overall “pulling” the customer toward you. Inbound Marketing strategies create brand awareness, improve Search Engine Optimization, create thought leadership, develop valuable customer relationships, establish credibility, and build trustworthy reputations.
Inbound Marketing is “In”
Inbound Marketing is a fairly recent methodology which has already proven many times over to be highly successful in generating more leads for businesses. Inbound Marketing has been born in the dawn of a new era of a new customer. The internet, new technology, and social activity have changed the way a consumer relates to businesses, wants to interact with businesses, and buys. According to recent research and consumer polls, consumers have announced their desire to be contacted through these new mediums.
Outbound Marketing is “Out”
In contrast, outbound marketing, or traditional marketing, is the marketing strategy where businesses try to find customers through building their brand awareness, buying into advertising and promotion, and interrupting the consumer. Because of the new customer being able to not put anything in their face that they do not want in their face, outbound marketing is just not working anymore. With spam filters, caller ID, Tivo, XM Radio, and just plan garbage cans, our busy new customer is hard to reach, especially, when they just don’t want to be reached that way anymore.
