Inbound marketing: the next level in online marketing.

 

The words ‘inbound marketing’ are popping up more and more. But what does inbound marketing mean? It’s a new marketing approach that reflects current consumer habits: searching for information on products or services on Google.  This consumer behavior means that now, more than ever, it’s imperative for your prospects to be able to find your information on the internet. How can you increase your success with inbound marketing? By creating strong web content.

Inbound marketing underscores the importance of adapting your content to the needs and desires of your target audience so that their search path automatically comes across your information! Once they discover your website, the trick is to prolong their visit, subtly guiding them through the sales process. Strategically placed calls-to-action help you to achieve this goal, but offering content that answers the questions of your website visitors and meets their immediate needs plays the most important part. A smartly balanced inbound marketing strategy allows you to convert your leads into customers, as simple as that.

Whether people simply can’t find these tools, or they don’t like them, the end result is the same – it’s expensive and frustrating to create a library of tools that sales just doesn’t use.

Aligning sales and marketing for better results

Just as the old model of news dissemination has been shattered – a few dominant outlets now replaced by a cacophony of voices - so has the traditional approach to healthcare marketing. Your healthcare B2B customers are turning into B2C right before your eyes, side-stepping your funnel and doing research and evaluation on their own, without seeking a contact with your sales team. According to a 2017 study by research company Forrester, 68% of B2B customers said they preferred to do their own research, rather than interact with a sales rep. This is a big change over 2015, when this figure was only 40%.
