4 Things I Learned about Inbound Marketing at a Public Relations Conference

Posted by Shaye Smith

September 18, 2017

Recently, I stepped into my third year of serving on the board for the Northwest Florida Coast Chapter of Florida’s Public Relations Association (and my fifth year as a member). Prior to joining the LeadG2 team, my background was heavy in public relations and digital communications, and I’ve found that background has been invaluable as I’ve moved into inbound marketing and content management. In August, FPRA hosted its 70th Annual Conference in Orlando, and I had the opportunity to attend for my first time.

As the Content Manager for LeadG2, my opinion on how public relations and inbound marketing are related (in many ways, but obviously not identical) and go hand-in-hand was reinforced session after session at the conference. Below are four things I learned (or knowledge that was reinforced about inbound marketing at a public relations conference.

Why Managers Fear Change, and How We Limit our Success by Avoiding It

Posted by Laura MacPherson

September 1, 2017

Everyone fears change to some degree. There’s a psychological reason why the thought of shaking things up at work makes us nervous, and why we’re uncomfortable transitioning to new systems. Psychologist and researcher Heidi Grant Halvorson, PhD, explains that humans are wired to avoid change.

Fear of Change Hurts Us

But fear of change hurts us, because the world is changing. Consumers have access to new technologies. B2B buyers have choices they didn’t used to have. People are evolving and adapting their buying habits. They take advantage of voicemail and caller ID, and their eyes have become trained to focus only on what they have to. They’re listening to what their peers have to say about their business challenges (and about the companies who sell solutions to those challenges) on social media.

What to Expect from HubSpot’s INBOUND 2017 Conference

Posted by Dean Moothart

August 30, 2017

 

This September 25-28th, the LeadG2 team will be attending HubSpot’s INBOUND 2017 conference at the Convention & Exhibition Center in Boston, MA. We’ll be joined by thousands of marketing and sales professionals who are seeking better ways to engage their markets and grow their businesses. Last year over 19,000 people from 92 countries attended over 300 educational sessions.  

The INBOUND conference is NOT a user’s conference. HubSpot is the largest sponsor, but you don’t have to be using any of HubSpot’s Growth Stack products (HubSpot Marketing, CRM and Sales Pro) to derive value from this event. It’s really designed for anyone looking for inspiration and new ideas to grow their revenue. HubSpot’s stated purposes for the INBOUND conference is “to provide the inspiration, education, and connections you need to grow and transform your business.”

At INBOUND, just about everywhere you turn you’ll bump into a learning opportunity, but there are three primary ways you’ll benefit from attending.

You Don’t Need Inbound Marketing If…

Posted by Matt Sunshine

August 28, 2017

Recently I was talking to a general manager of a radio station who has been following this blog for some time now. For this article, I'll refer to him as Bob. Bob reached out to me because one of his general sales managers who also reads this blog had been telling him that they need to invest in an inbound marketing strategy.

Bob had some interest but he was not convinced he really needed to do inbound marketing. To Bob, inbound marketing just seemed like a way to let salespeople off the hook and not have to do their own prospecting. (This idea could not be more wrong—but more on that in a minute). In addition to the lack of prospecting, Bob looked at inbound marketing as an expense that did not have any sort of ROI, at least in the short run. So, with all that said, Bob asked me if I could convince him that he should do inbound marketing.
