Brainstorming is the Key to Sustaining Content Development

Posted by Dean Moothart

April 19, 2017

For many organizations, the biggest challenge of sustaining a successful inbound marketing strategy is consistently publishing fresh, relevant content. Many marketers come out of the gate strong and fast when their inbound marketing strategy is initially launched. They have a plethora of ideas that yield a consistent supply of new blog articles, eBooks and white papers.

At some point, though, they seem to “hit the wall.” Life happens. The tyranny of the urgent gets in the way of what’s truly important. Instead of creating content to prime the lead generation pump, their days become consumed with putting out the latest fire and dealing with everyday business. Publishing a couple of new pieces of content per week evolves into publishing one new piece of content every couple of weeks or even months. The publishing gap grows longer and longer until eventually it stops all together. We’ve all seen websites and Twitter profiles that appear to be abandoned. When that occurs my first thought is “I wonder if this company is still in business?” Certainly, not the best first impression you want to make with a new prospect.

“Inbound Marketing Won’t Work For Me . . . My Solution is too Complex”

Posted by Dean Moothart

April 10, 2017


There seems to be a misconception with some that inbound marketing is only for companies that have simple, straightforward, easy-to-understand products in mature (or at least well-established) markets. It makes sense that people will search online for products like office supplies, florists, or pest control services. The keywords for these web searches are fairly obvious, and the products are universally understood by the market. Consequently, it’s imperative that these types of products and services be found online, and their websites should be optimized to capture efficiently and convert visitors into leads and leads into customers.

How To Write a Landing Page That Generates More Leads

Posted by Laura MacPherson

April 7, 2017

 

You work hard to get website visitors to a landing page. You’ve probably written blog posts, promoted them on social media, maybe even run an AdWords or other digital campaign. You put a lot of time and money into getting people to  your landing pages. So you don’t want to waste that opportunity.

Landing pages are a different animal than homepages or other pages on your website. The visitor likely has little inclination to roam around and look for information patiently—he or she probably arrived wanting something specific. Landing pages have unique requirements to be effective.

Whether you want people to register for an event, request a consultation, subscribe to an email list, or access an eBook, the one single goal of a landing page is to convert that visitor to a known lead. Here are 10 elements of landing pages that convert.

April 5, 2017

 

It’s that time of year again… probably my favorite time of year now that I live in Seattle (and no longer Florida, the land of no seasons except summer). The temperatures are warming up, the sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and people are starting to come out of their winter hibernation.

How to Land a Whale, the Inbound Marketing Way

Posted by Dean Moothart

April 3, 2017

Every salesperson dreams of landing the big whale of a deal. You know the one—the deal that makes your year and cements your reputation as a rainmaker. Once you get a big deal like that, that’s all you’ll ever want to go after. But we all know that dreaming doesn’t get us any closer to a signature on a contract and a commission check in the bank. Sure there’s an occasional “bluebird” that lands in someone’s lap. But sales careers aren’t made by hoping we’ll get lucky. Instead, it takes a well-thought-out strategy, disciplined execution, and hours of hard work to land a big deal.

4 Steps to Get Management Buy-In for Inbound Marketing

Posted by Laura MacPherson

March 31, 2017

Salespeople and marketing teams with an on-the-ground perspective all want an inbound marketing program. They’ve seen the results it produces at other companies, perhaps, and have witnessed others in their professions excel with inbound marketing. But too often, management doesn’t quite see things the same way.

How can you get executive buy-in for inbound marketing? Here are a few tips.
