If you’re not familiar with the concept of inbound marketing, it’s an online marketing methodology based on the idea of creating quality content around a product or service to educate potential clients. Inbound marketing practices include blogging, SEO, social media, webinars and other forms of content, like whitepapers or eBooks. As opposed to traditional outbound marketing tactics, like cold calling or sending email blasts, inbound marketing earns the attention of customers by aligning with their specific interests and focusing on naturally attracting leads through website traffic and lead nurturing.
