Marketing has changed. Intrusive outbound marketing tactics like cold calling, TV commercials, radio spots, and print ads are quickly becoming outdated. Instead inbound marketing has emerged as a powerful marketing tactic, driven by the idea of being found when someone searches for you.
Consumers now want timely and useful communications from companies. They no longer want irrelevant or sales-type messages from companies. In response, today’s marketers have turned to blogging, white papers, SEO, webinars, and e-books to drives sales and leads. They are providing informational, thought leadership, and industry pieces that have proven to have a much higher ROI than outbound marketing ones.
