How to Begin Inbound Marketing

When it comes to inbound marketing, the idea isn't to throw more money at it, creating killer content is the prime objective and requires more thinking and commitment than budget. Don’t throw money at it - put your head and heart into it!

Here’s how to get started:

1 -- Join Markethive.com -- it's FREE!
2 -- Identify your target audience and learn all you can about them.
3 -- Determine your unique, compelling story. Why should your audience listen to you?
4 -- Choose your delivery platforms. Will you blog? Tweet? Use Facebook? Pinterest?
5 -- Create and execute your content calendar.
6 -- Monitor your results in the campaigns module of Markethive.

It is important to create a schedule that will consistently turn out fresh and relevant content to continue to engage your audience. Keep in mind that your theme should be focused on customer issues, not on your business. Marketers should be focused on publishing quality content. Content that educates their audience and builds brands and authority.  The right content will be shared, increasing your reach, increasing awareness, increasing trust and increasing leads. The wrong content will lose followers and damage your reputation.

Conclusion: Make Inbound Marketing Work For You!  

In our fast-paced society where the Internet and social networking shape our daily decisions, customers are exposed to more information than ever. This phenomenon is not only making them more educated, but also is causing a change in buying behaviors. As a result, B2B and B2C marketing efforts must be adjusted to respond to this shift. Today’s businesses are realizing that outbound efforts alone are not enough to produce profits. Instead, inbound marketing techniques need to be utilized in order to attract more leads and foster better brand preference. To be successful in inbound marketing, businesses need to introduce a disciplined approach to content creation, introduce marketing automation tools that can help them nurture and score leads, and optimize how these leads flow through the sales pipeline.
