Inbound Marketing: The process of attracting customers to you versus the old-school method of interruption (aka Outbound Marketing). Instead of using mediums like radio, print, TV, direct mailers, etc. — you instead create powerful content and strategies, through the use of blogs and social media, to attract qualified leads to your website and business.
Content Marketing: Very similar to inbound marketing, but the process of using informational blog posts, videos, etc to teach consumers, thus earning the trust of search engines and customers, ultimately resulting in more business and sales.
I was steered toward Hubspot by a copywriter that I work with and stumbled across your Sales Lion page while looking for reviews about the site. I’m still not sure about Hub Spot, but I downloaded your ebook a couple of hours ago and I’m blown away. And now I understand why I have been hearing blog, blog, blog for so long. It is so blatantly obvious now….uggggh, the time I’ve wasted.
I used to think (3 hours ago) that I was a good writer and put out some interesting newsletters and occasional blogs, but you’ve opened my eyes to a whole different level of blogging and writing. More importantly, I see that I was missing the whole point behind the strategy.
