  • Part I: Outbound vs. Inbound Marketing The Internet has changed the dynamics of the business world.  For the past decades, marketers have used   “outbound” marketingng techniques such as trade shows and print advertising, where marketers push out a   message far and wide hoping that it resonates with a few individuals.  These outbound marketing methods are  becoming less and less effective for two reasons:People are getting beBer at blocking out interruption‐based marking messages. The average person is inundated with thousands of outbound marketing interruptions per day and is figuring  out more creative ways to block them out, including caller ID, spam filtering, and on‐demand TV and radio. The Internet presents quick and easy ways for consumers to learn and shop. Instead of flying to a trade show across the country, for example, a consumer can go the Internet to research  and purchase products or services. Today, consumers are going to the Internet to start their purchasing process.  In order to remain competitive, businesses need to utilize “inbound” marketing techniques to “get found” by the consumers searching for their products and services online.

  • understand your audience has the same distribution as you do, they can blog and Tweet faster than you or your hierarchy can edit and control spin;understand who your audience is, don't try to own your audience provide value to your audience; understand what your audience values, not the features or benefits you want to sell; lose control (a); if you want us to sign up, we move on;lose control (b), stop asking for a wall of information that you want to build your leads database;if you provide valued content and there is a link and contact information, people will find and recommend you [would you rather have 100 leads of dubious quality or 10,000 downloads and 50 responses? Know what Google search engines value];think like a publisher and make all content valuable for every flavor of your customer; make sure it is easy for us to forward your information, if we find it valuable, we will distribute it for you, when it is really valued we even recommend it; make sure there are always links back to a source or call to action, always make it easy for us to dig deeper; stop spamming press releases, journalists Google you, they don't look at a stack of your jargon-filled press releases; post all your news and press releases on your website, that's where we go for your news and that is where Google goes to index your information;  go where your audience is or provide all the tools for your audience to build their own happening; stop co-opting Twitter, You Tube, and Facebook, we are faster than you; when you provide content you build organically:  become the source for information and problem solving and you and your company will become known;ask permission; forget about your viral campaign, provide value and we make your content viralwe don't care about you or your product, we care about how you or your product makes our life better - so get to the point without jargon, better yet, if you come recommended, I will find you
  • Provide value – you’ll gain trust and attentionSupport the community – put others above yourselfCreate conversationsRequest and listen to feedback; let other users of the site be your teachers and informantsDemonstrate integrity – you are transparent on the web and integrity mattersHave fun – don’t prejudge connections – you never know where someone will lead you
  • How important are these services to your business 2009 vs. 2010
  • Compelling ContentYour Internet strategy has to start as a dialogue and rely on value-added content as the source and substance of all you present.A second strategy that is particularly important is to provide multiple “calls to action” on each and every communication. An invitation or “call to action” includes: commenting, forwarding, referring, and signing up.Neither an inbound strategy nor a call to action matter much without remarkable content. Content is remarkable when someone defines it as remarkable, not when your marketing or product manager define it as remarkable. This is the greatest challenge in today’s world of marketing. You really have no control over your product’s value, however, you do have control about hosting and socializing with people who will advocate, refer, and recommend your service or product. So, your strategy relies on enabling others.
  • The best web strategy positions your web page not as a brochure or an advertisement, but a rich source of content. The best web strategy, like the best magazine, provides content over just look – form over function. Not all of your site’s visitor’s have to be buyers, but they should leave as advocates.Today’s marketing relies less on information (a one-way flow of thoughts and ideas) and more than ever on communication (a two-way flow of thoughts and ideas). Social media and the Internet are conversations, referrals, and filters. Like a dinner party, no one on the Internet will tolerate an individual who monopolizes the conversation or directs others to talk about only their interests.

  • Find keywords.  Pick a list of words relevant to your business.  Think about which words are most likely to get people to do what you want them to do (convert into leads) and focus on those words.  Then pick one word (or phrase) to use on one page of your site.  For more detailed info, read: Detailed Internet Marketing Keyword Tips.Put keywords in Page Title. The Page Title is one of the most important things that Google and other search engines evaluate to determine what is on a web page.  Put your keyword or phrase in the title, keep it short.  For more detailed info, read Why a Web Page By Any Other Title Would Not Rank As Well.Put keywords in Page URL.  Google and other search engines also use the text of the URL of the page to determine the content of the web page.  You should use your keyword or phrase in the URL of the web page - either the folder/directory structure or the HTML file / page name itself.Put keywords in Meta Data.  While the page metadata (Page Description and Keywords) are not nearly as important as they used to be, they still count.  Take advantage of them by putting your keyword or phrase there.  The description should be readable by a person and make sense and the keyword metadata should focus on your keyword or phrase - do not make it long, less is more.  For more detailed info, read Understanding the Magic of Meta-Data.Put keywords in your H1 text.  The H1 text is usually the title of an article or some larger bold text at the top of your page.  Google and the smaller search engines can see this and they put extra importance on the words in the H1 text.  Make sure your keyword or phrase is there.Use keywords in the page content.  Putting the keyword in your page content also signals to search engines that the page is actually about the keyword and should show up in search results.  I have heard from "experts" that you should use your keyword anywhere from 4-6 times to 10-12 times.  My advice is to just write naturally.
  • Create content worth linking toPromote your content via distribution channelsCreate links using your keywords as anchor textFocus on relevant, authoritative link sources
  • RSS feeds from online news sites display your press release contentMany press release distribution services also offer RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds of their press releases,which they make available to other sites, blogs and individuals. What this means is that each time you publish apress release with them, the press release is seen by thousands of people who have subscribed to the RSS contentfeeds. And online news services such as Google News have RSS feed capability too, allowing people to receive feedsbased on keywords and phrases. So each time your release includes a word or phrase of importance, people willreceive your press releases directly and in near real-time.
