Top 12 Tactics for Creating Inbound Marketing Success

January 15, 2014

Inbound Marketing drawing from sales repHave you been struggling to find success with transitioning to an Inbound Marketing strategy? To understand the underlying reason some websites fail to attract and convert new visitors requires answers to several basic questions. Advancements to the HubSpot Content Optimization System (previous versions known as the Content Management System) this past year have allowed customers to generate thousands of new visitors and leads.  Customers have raved about HubSpot’s analytics which truly help a marketer turn prospects into customers. 

Inbound Marketing flips the traditional process of advertising upside down. The consumer chooses when they wish to learn more about a product or service when they need it – which is typically not during their favorite TV show or while driving to work on the radio.Consumers can search and make buying decisions for most products and services before speaking with a sales professional. Failure to attract and convert new visitors requires answers to several basic questions.

If your consumers are searching for your product right now, what do you think they’re finding? Are they seeing your solutions and benefits pages or skipping straight to pricing? If they are searching on their mobile device do they see different mobile search results?

Real-time Lead Nurture

If you haven’t been using Signals you’re really missing out! This new technology allows a marketer or sales person the ability to see when a prospect is interacting with an email they’ve sent or visiting one of your website pages or landing pages (in real-time). In fact, if timed correctly, can be used as a sales resource that can help close new business. With proper training and approach, the alerts can open new doors to offer a reason for your sales person to pick up the phone and call the prospect, as in: “Hi Sally, I know you have been considering our product/service for some time now – I wanted to reach out and offer help answering any questions you might have.” Used wisely, this new sales tool can truly help your sales team close new business.

Successful businesses use a marketing plan, and if you think you may have deeper questions I would be happy to speak with you. Most likely your plan for 2014 has been written and posted on your company’s walls. But does it include a plan for aligning content to context?  In today’s evolving world of digital devices and screens, aligning the right content to the visitor is crucial. For example, HubSpot allows your website to show different content modules and calls-to-action based on knowledge of you as a visitor or prospect in the sales process. How important will serving the relevant content to new and returning visitors be for your business in 2014?  My guess is very important.
