The Whole Brain Group recently published an intriguing infographic explaining the key components of one of my favorite marketing methodologies, inbound marketing. I was drawn to this infographic because it compares traditional and inbound marketing before delving into the 5 steps to increase traffic and convert leads into customers.
In the infographic, the Whole Brain Group breaks down the inbound marketing process into the following five steps:
- Create compelling content for all stages of the buying cycle, such as blog posts, eBooks, and videos
- Get found by people who need your products and services using advanced search marketing techniques and social media
- Convert visitors into leads using landings pages with clear calls to action, and then nurture the relationships using social media and email marketing
- Convert qualified leads into customers by focusing on customers at the bottom of the sales funnel (those ready to buy)
- Analyze and adjust your marketing tactics to determine the best ways to reach and convert potential customers
