Inbound marketing initially attracts leads by positioning your organisation as a thought leader by creating valuable educational content and experiences, tailored to their needs and pain points (while outbound marketing interrupts your audience with content they don’t necessarily want), to Streamline Your Marketing, you need to address the inbound marketing that solves problems they already have.
Once we have educated our personas or target market, we now give them the ability to self-nurture. i.e. choose what information they want and when. This will be different for B2B, B2C, and differ across industries or verticals…. and can take many different forms. Examples include blog articles, social media, guides, testimonials, product solutions, white papers, ebooks, video etc.
