Inbound Marketing – Promotion Through Attraction

What is Inbound Marketing?

What is inbound marketing and how can it help your business? Inbound marketing aims to offer customers with useful, relevant information that they have shown an interest in. Its approach is to attract customers with interesting and meaningful information, rather than solely promoting a product or service.

An approach focused on attracting customers through content and interactions that are helpful and relevant. (HubSpot)

Traditional Marketing Methods

Traditional marketing strategies relied on interruptive marketing. Interruptive marketing is just that, interruptive and annoying. This type of marketing can be anything from annoying spam and emails to pop up ads when you are trying to watch an interesting programme.

Interruptive marketing is classed as outbound marketing. It uses a push strategy rather than one that pulls viewers. Whereas, inbound marketing, works by attracting your customers when they themselves choose to research something and can find links to your website. As technology grows so too must businesses marketing efforts and strategies.

Why does inbound marketing work better?

The increasing growth in technology has changed the way in which consumers buy. Before the Internet customers were less aware of their choices. They shopped where they always have. They had no defense against intrusive, interruptive and often exaggerated advertisements.

By using inbound marketing techniques businesses will attract customers and retain them. But how does the inbound process work?
