No. You didn't read that wrong. Here at Tomorrow People, we have no need for a sales team. We don't even have a full-time salesperson; we just all do a bit of sales on the side. We don't cold call, mailshoot or advertise. We're a pretty hostile bunch when it comes to tired, washed out and, frankly, quite useless marketing techniques such as those. Nevertheless, without wishing to blow the official Tomorrow People trumpet, we're keeping busy.

  • 3. Why isn’t your marketinggetting the same results?Well, it’s all well and good having a website – everybody does nowadays.The issue lies in what you do with it.

  • 5. Content marketingAlthough no single element of our online marketing can be described as amagic bullet, content marketing acts as the linchpin around which everythingelse revolves.

We use a blend of articles, blogging,infographics and eGuides, as well as other types of content, to achieve thisaim and ensure the website is providing the answers to the questions ouraudience is asking.
  • 6. Social mediaAnd how do we know what those questions are? Through themonitoring of various channels on relevant social media platforms and seeing justwhat consumers are talking about. We join in the conversation and use what welearn to formulate killer content. Social media is also a wonderful way to spread theword. If your content is strong enough and delivering real value, it will get talkedabout, attracting even more visitors to your website. 77% of consumers understand that the ultimate aim of a company’s content is to sell to them, but they don’t mind, so long as it provides value.

SEO, combined with socialmedia, will increase awareness of your website, with high quality content attractinglinks from other sites, further helping to increase your search engine rankings.
