It’s pretty much a given that traditional marketing methods to keep sales pipelines full don’t work anymore. Print ads, cold calling, and email blasts are relics of the past.
Customers are inundated with advertisements and calls to their homes with sales pitches for products they don’t need. Customers fought back with spam blockers and do not call lists.
To combat customers who were onto traditional marketing tactics, companies turned to the Internet and SEO tactics to increase website traffic. They went on Facebook, posted on Pinterest, added keywords, and published press releases for every possible announcement.
The result: crickets…still.
So what went wrong? Where are all the customers? Why aren’t social media & SEO strategies enough?
The KEY is to have a plan that ties content with SEO and social media in a cohesive and meaningful way.
Inbound Marketing Is That Plan
