Inbound Marketing
“The core idea of inbound marketing is to create a steady stream of valuable, relevant content.
When you publish content that your audience really cares about, you naturally attract inbound
traffic that can eventually convert into paying customers. It is never about shilling for your
product. It’s about relevant, valuable content.” - Brian Kardon, CMO at Fuze
