The new era of marketing is all about meaningful engagement. Today, successful marketers must find ways to earn attention from their audience and develop one-to-one relationships that provide value to their prospects from the beginning. That approach is at the core of the Inbound (marketing) Methodology. With content marketing costing 62% less than traditional marketing and producing three times as many leads, now is the time to embrace the Inbound Methodology to help your business grow.
Instead of buying attention, inbound marketing is all about producing quality content that entices people towards your business. In this way, you will attract customers more organically that you can then convert, close and delight into customers who are willing to promote you to their networks. As you can see in HubSpot’s Inbound Methodology graphic, this approach to marketing and content creation, where you match relevant content to your lead’s nurture path stage, creates a self-sustaining loop which continuously brings you more leads to nurture into awesome customers.
Not only does this approach work, according to HubSpot, it can save your company money. On average, companies save an average of $20,000 per year by investing more in inbound marketing versus traditional outbound marketing.
