What is Inbound Marketing?
Inbound or content marketing is a process whereby automated marketing activities such as lead nurturing emails are only presented to users who have previously indicated their interest in your products and services. Typically, this desire is indicated by signing up for a free piece of premium content using an email address.
Is inbound marketing more effective than traditional online marketing?
Inbound marketing is typically my times more efficent that traditional outbound marketing as you attract visitors to your site who are already searching for subjects related to your products and services. Subsequent marketing activities are thus presented to a more motivated, engaged audience than you could ever expect for a traditional marketing campaign online.
