How to Get Your Inbound Marketing On Point?

Inbound Marketing

Inbound marketing is the art of attracting customers through alternative methods, such as great content or impeccable branding. It is a proven way of generating leads and sales, and often times, it can be less expensive than traditional marketing techniques.

When compared to outbound marketing, it is the less aggressive approach. It is all about earning a customer’s trust and attention, not buying it. Meaning that you can gain new leads and loyalty in a much more organic way. In today’s world where the Millennial and Gen Z crowd has become desensitized to advertising, finding new measures to capture your target audience is the key.  

But getting your inbound marketing right takes research, insight and a good understanding of your customer – as well as a deep knowledge of the market you’re in. Creating useful and compelling content is at the heart of it all, and companies will need to redirect investment and focus on making their brand shine if they want to stand out against the competition.  

Here is a guide on how to nail your inbound marketing campaigns.

Customer Experience Lessons to Learn from Amazon and Starbucks

Customer Experience

As far as ubiquitous household names go, there’s no denying that Amazon and Starbucks rank near the top of the list.

I mean, the number of active individual Amazon accounts is almost equal to the population of the United States. Small wonder, then, that the ecommerce giant is expected to hold a whopping 50% of the market share for the online shopping industry by 2021.

As for Starbucks, the coffee giant currently holds almost 40% of the market share for US coffee chains. And, as you’re probably well aware, you pretty much can’t go anywhere without being within walking distance of a Starbucks storefront or kiosk.

(Case in point, I’m writing this from a Starbucks right now…and there are two others within half a mile of my current location.)

But the point of this article isn’t to drone on about how successful Amazon and Starbucks are as companies; you already know this.
