Every business could use more qualified leads and would it be great if the folks who contacted you were already “looking” for your products and services!?   Well, that in a nut-shell is Inbound Marketing!   So, if you have been using  Outbound Marketing with Direct Mail, Letters, Post Cards, Flyer and Emails to a huge distribution list hoping and praying that someone would respond, you have come to the right place since with Inbound Marketing your company and website is found as a results  of a direct search that brings these potential clients to your site who were already looking for your Products and Services.

The strength of  Inbound Marketing is that the searchers are the one’s that find you and if you are smart about you, it won’t cost you as much since you will be able to generate Organic Search Engine Traffic to your site.  For Inbound marketing, your customers use Search Engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing to search for a service or a product.   And if you have done enough Search Engine Optimization on your website, you would appear on the 1st page of the Search Results.  

To generate leads using Inbound Marketing you will  need to develop enough relevant content and publish it online for search engines to pick up your content.  Naturally we recommend WordPress as the blogging platform since the amount of Plugins, and Tools to help develop content is priceless.  All you need is the zeal and the commitment to generate fresh and good content to attract readers.  

Granted Google wants you to use Adwords to buy advertising to be ranked higher, but that’s a very costly proposition like the Outbound Marketing. That is not to say that if Adwords don’t work.  In fact, they do work, but the challenge becomes that the minute you stop buying the ads on these Search Engines, your Traffic will also grind to a halt as well.
