Content is key to attracting your ideal consumers
Creating interesting and informative content is the key to successful inbound marketing. Companies around the world earn attention and respect by producing content that intrigues prospective clients and helps them find the information they’re looking for. Great content is accessible, concise, educational and unique. It is never solely promotional.
How media networks draw the public in
Within the last decade, businesses around the globe have turned to social media outlets to publish content and to promote their brands, products and services. Social media is an extremely effective and efficient way to spread direct information to a global population in real time. HubSpot’s Inbound Certification Course explains how companies can use social media to ultimately gain more customers.
According to HubSpot, an astounding 70 percent of the world’s Internet population is active on social media. These days, business prospects spend more of their free time on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ than they do shopping in a store or searching the Internet. That is why it is crucial for businesses to embrace this technological shift and use social media to their advantage.
Why sending the right email to the right person still matters
Have you heard anyone recently say “email is dead,” “all marketing emails are spam,” or other similar phrases? If so, let me tell you that email is not dead and is in fact still a very important factor in successful inbound marketing. Many traditional marketers have long used and abused email’s purpose by sending obnoxious messages to people who don’t want to receive them and who have learned how to tune them out. Nevertheless, email can still be extremely effective if marketers use proper inbound strategies to send the right email to the right person.
How to properly use social media channels
Companies that use social media properly distribute content to their consumers differently, depending on the platform. In other words, it doesn’t make sense to share content through a LinkedIn post in the same manner you would in a tweet.
Each social media outlet has a different audience with a specific agenda. While LinkedIn and Google+ are targeted at much more professional audiences, Facebook and Twitter are far more casual.
By using each of the four major social media outlets appropriately, businesses can most effectively reach their target buyer personas.
