  • In this presentation, attendees will learn the basics of inbound marketing and how it can be used to build a business. Describe your marketing background. Through Inbound Marketing University (IMU), you have become an Inbound Marketing Certified Professional, which acknowledges your proficiency in blogging, social media, search engine optimization (SEO), lead conversion, lead nurturing and closed-loop analysis.This content is part of the Inbound Marketing University.
  • Outbound marketing strategies are becoming less effective in today’s world. We now have devices (e.g. spam blockers, TiVo/DVRs, caller ID, etc.) that allow us to block out the messages being pushed onto us People are doing their own research to figure out which products and services they want to buy
  • Publish ALL of your content. This can be in the form of a blog, podcast, videos, photos, presentations, eBooks or news releases.
  • Google decides whether your content will rank well in search engines. Remarkable, search engine optimized content gives your content its best chance of ranking well in Google.
  • Image: There are four main components of on-page SEO, or optimizing the content of your web page for search engines. Make sure to use your best keywords within those four locations. However, Google bases only 25% of your content’s ranking on on-page SEO
  • Google bases 75% of your content’s ranking on off-page SEO Your content’s authority is determined by the quality and quantity of the inbound links pointing to your content. Inbound links = links to your content from another websiteRecommendations from Friends:“I know Jane Doe.” (Good)“Jane Dow is a marketing expert.” (Better)You trust the person saying this. (Best)Links Are Online RecommendationsA link: www.inboundmarketing.com (Good)Anchor Text: Inbound Marketing University (Better)Link is from a trusted website (Best)
  • Share links to your content on social media sites and throughout appropriate online social networks. Sharing content regularly will also help build your network on those channels.
  • Image: Include a call to action on the bottom of your blog posts. Calls to action are offers that prompt people to fill out a form on a landing page, which converts a visitor into a lead. Calls to action are critical to lead generation.
  • Image: When someone clicks on a call to action, it should bring them to a landing page with a form. Landing pages with forms covert website visitors into leads that a sales team can follow up with.
  • Image: Be sure to measure your different landing pages and their rates of conversion. Conversion is the percentage of visitors who converted into leads. Keep track of your conversion rates & analytics to determine which calls to action are working.
  • Marketing analytics are an important part of your inbound marketing programs. Track the sources of your traffic to understand which channels send the best traffic and leads. Monitor these analytics daily and evaluate which techniques are working and which aren’t. Use this data to modify your inbound marketing campaigns to do more of what works and less of what doesn’t.
  • The Inbound Marketing Methodology: As you complete the first three steps, make sure to continue to analyze how your traffic converts.
