The three key elements for successful inbound marketing

 

Advances in mobile technology, social media and search engines have completely changed consumer behavior. Enabled by these changes, inbound marketing, the latest evolution in marketing, has really only existed for the past couple of years. While it heralds a brand-new way of looking at marketing, it’s easy to incorporate into your marketing plans. Keep these three important elements in mind when developing your inbound strategy.

  1. ContentIt’s the beating heart of your program. Apply as much of your resources here as you can. This includes blogs, ebooks, white papers, videos and helpful tools.

  2. Search Engine Optimization. Develop your website and inbound links with SEO as your focus. The better your SEO, the higher your ranking in search engines, and the easier it is for prospects to find you.

  3. Social Media. Traction on social media intensifies the power of your content. More traction = more prospects finding their way to your website.

Create sales enablement tools that sales want to use

In many organizations, sales tools are like an iceberg. There’s the 10% that are above the waterline – the tools that everybody knows and uses - and then there’s the 90% that, for whatever reason, never see the light of day. 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%.
