  • Business is built on relationships: it ’s one of the main things we walk away from Suffolk University is relationships One key thing to remember is Relationships take time You don ’t go on a first date and then ask to get married right away!
  • 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 (or traditional marketing) is the strategy of pushing your message onto your audience using techniques like telemarketing (cold calling), trade shows, direct mail, email blasts, print ads and TV/radio ads.
  • The cost of doing business is to be present
  • Inbound Marketing (or modern marketing) is marketing using techniques focused on getting found by prospects; inbound marketing is a more efficient and cost-effective way to do marketing. Pull in customers to your business by creating content, optimizing that content for search engines and promoting and sharing that content in social media A helpful overview of inbound marketing can be found at http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/4416/Inbound-Marketing-the-Next-Phase-of-Marketing-on-the-Web.aspx
  • Outbound marketing depends on the size of your wallet; inbound marketing depends on the size of your brain! You can only do outbound marketing if you have a lot of money. If you have a lot of brains (intelligence), do inbound marketing.
  • Inbound marketing-focused companies have a 60% lower cost-per-lead than outbound marketing-focused companies.
  • Image: 92% of businesses who are lowering their 2010 budget say the cause is the economy. 58% of businesses who are increasing their 2010 budget say the cause is their success and business growth from inbound marketing. Companies who are using inbound marketing are producing results that earn increased budgets (in a difficult economy!)
  • Develop a content mindset and culture at your company. Instead of thinking you need to put information in your audience ’s lap, create interesting information that draws your audience in!
  • Publish ALL of your content. This can be in the form of a blog, podcast, videos, photos, presentations, eBooks or news releases.
  • Research shows that companies that blog attract 55% more web site visitors than companies that don ’t blog.
  • The two key elements in determining whether your content will rank well in Google are context and authority . Context = on-page SEO Authority = off-page SEO
  • 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 website Recommendations from Friends: “ I know Jane Doe.” (Good) “ Jane Dow is a marketing expert.” (Better) You trust the person saying this. (Best) Links Are Online Recommendations A link: www.inboundmarketing.com (Good) Anchor Text: Inbound Marketing University (Better) Link is from a trusted website (Best)
  • Think about your target audience(s) for your products/services. Create and define personas for each (there may be more than one). Always think of your personas when creating content. Ask yourself: Would this piece of content appeal/be helpful to one or all of my personas?
  • Image: A few examples of places to engage in social media are the comments section of a blog post, a Facebook Fan Page or a Twitter account. Social media involvement is a two-way street Create an engaging presence by encouraging discussions and sharing engaging and thought-provoking content (e.g. online events, videos, Facebook discussions blog articles, etc.)
  • 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 “share buttons” on your blog posts and other content. Promoting content yourself is important, but help others spread and share your content by making it easy for them to do so Include share buttons on all of your content Provoke brand evangelism
  • Image: Companies that actively use a social media channel are acquiring customers from that channel. For example: 46% of companies who actively publish a company blog have acquired a customer from that blog. Social media engagements = ROI Companies are acquiring customers as a result of their involvement in social media 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The Inbound Marketing Methodology: As you complete the first three steps, make sure to continue to analyze how your traffic converts.
