    • CMS
    • Email Automation • Email still works … if you set the right tone • More than just “auto-responders” • The heart of your lead nurturing effort #InboundMarketingWeek
    • Email Automation
    • CRM • As much about Process as about Tools • No “one size fits all” • Must be used in Anger to properly evaluate (in our experience) • Consider integration capability #InboundMarketingWeek
    • CRM
    • Analytics • More than just Website statistics • Use for Social, Web, Email, Lead Management, Sales and more… • Affords access to Growth Hacking and continuous improvement of the marketing funnel #InboundMarketingWeek
    • Analytics
    • • Funnel Structure! • Stages of the Inbound Marketing Funnel! • Qualification & Progressive Profiling Strategic Framework
    • Funnels • Your best prospects might not be ready to buy yet • Where the timing is right, your product/service also needs to be right • Where the timings isn’t right, great CRM process needs to ensure no “leaks” in the funnel • Have you got the time to “hand-hold” every prospect through the nurturing journey? #InboundMarketingWeek

    • Progressive Profiling
    • • Lead Magnets • Email Copy • CTA’s
    • Lead Magnets • Know your Buyer Personas inside and out • Design “premium” content that attracts ONLY your target buyers • Compelling and relevant titles and tag-lines can accurately pre-qualify #InboundMarketingWeek
    • Email Copy • Get it Opened • Set the tone early - double opt-in or content delivery via email can help • Compelling subject line • Personalisation • Get the Click-through • Compelling and attractive CTA #InboundMarketingWeek
    • CTA's
    • The “Lean Team” Skill Set ! ! Designers! ! Developers! ! ! ! Copywriters! ! Marketers
    • • Legacy Lists! • Social! • Communities! • Influencers! • Offline to Online Distribution
    • A Huge Challenge for Many Businesses Today… Now that we have content, how do we get it seen by the right people?
    • Legacy Lists • Keep it Inbound - Think of legacy email lists/ databases as a “Re-activation” exercise • Use segmentation to maximise results • Promoting content and/or social proof trumps product/service promotion • … then let the Marketing Automation engine do the rest! #InboundMarketingWeek
    • Social Distribution • Your Social Media presence becomes even more important • Do you have a large following? • More importantly, do you have reach? • Even more importantly, do you have TARGETED reach? • Are you fishing where the (right) fish are? • Platform choice • Social = SEO*
    • Communities
    • Influencers • When building a community from scratch seems like hard work! • Efficient networking … one-to-one-to-many • Influence is contextual - choose by relevance as well as reach #InboundMarketingWeek
    • Influencers
    • Offline to Online • Inbound can compliment your outbound activities - Telemarketing, DM, Events, etc. • Improve conversion rates by promoting at the top of the funnel (content) rather than the bottom (appointments) • A “safety net” for more transactional offers #InboundMarketingWeek
