how does inbound marketing differ from traditional marketing
Inbound marketing is different from traditional marketing techniques as it relies on creating quality content that draws people to your website. This has largely replaced the old outbound methods of buying ads and e-mail lists then praying for leads! Therefore by aligning content with your customer’s needs then you naturally attract inbound traffic. The aim is to convert this inbound traffic to your existing customer portfolio. The results are not immediate and it takes time to generate the copy to build the inbound traffic, before the leads can be converted.
the inbound methodology
There are essentially 4 stages to inbound methodology as follows -:
- Attract strangers to your website
- Convert these visitors into leads
- Make the sale
- Continue to delight the customer so they come back for more
The company that developed the inbound methodology is Hubspot. Cope Sales and Marketing works with a Hubspot partner so we can either build websites on the Hubspot platform or, as we prefer, build websites in WordPress and use an SEO plug-in (Yoast). We prefer to use WordPress with a plug-in because you can withdraw from Hubspot at anytime and your website remains intact.
