Inbound marketing isn’t for the impatient, nor the faint of heart. It’s a strategy designed for the long game, and requires time to demonstrate results.
Unlike traditional marketing initiatives, which disappear when that magazine ad has been flipped past or commercial budget used up, once inbound marketing takes hold, its effects are cumulative and continue to grow—snowballing the longer they're nurtured.
But that doesn't necessarily mean it's for everybody.
Implementing the inbound methodology is a highly personalized decision. For instance, if your business needs results now, inbound might not be the ideal solution.
If your business is sustainable for at least the next three years, however, developing an inbound strategy might be just what you require to succeed across the digital marketplace.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started with Inbound Marketing:
Success with inbound marketing doesn't happen overnight. It’s a long-term strategy with short-term goals, which builds and grows the longer it's nurtured. Again, think of a snowball.
Inbound marketing requires a strong commitment to the process. Envision your company's goals and recognize that achieving them will demand time and resources. Failure to do so will make justifying the necessary associated work difficult.
Whether you’re hiring an agency full-time or simply signing up for a CRM (customer relationship management) platform to use yourself, there are monthly fees involved. If the former, consider these wisely spent on an experienced team of inbound experts.
The Desire to Grow
When the inbound methodology begins to take hold, site traffic has been known to increase by as much as 1,000% or more! With this spike come more leads, too, so it's important to ensure your company is capable of taking on such an influx before enlisting inbound.
Inbound marketers are storytellers who guide potential customers along a journey through discovery, research and education. All companies possess a unique tale about who they are, where they've been, and where they'd like to go. These details are important. What makes your business tick? What can be leveraged to help potential customers connect, and trust, you? All this can help facilitate inbound success.
More than solely tactical, inbound embodies a philosophy that requires complete buy-in to work. Adopt and believe in this process, and you'll truly be stunned by the results.
