The Core Principles of Inbound Marketing

Inbound marketing takes commitment, but trust us: it's worth it.

Snowball Effect


Inbound marketing typically starts slow and gradually builds momentum. If a company is consistent in their inbound marketing efforts, this momentum will grow and result in enormous amounts of traffic. Some campaigns can take off and go viral almost overnight, but consitent efforts will snowball into great results.

Quality Content

Quality Content

The heart of inbound marketing is content. Great content is what causes people to share and engage, and it's also a very strong signal to search engines that your website deserves to be listed at the top of the pile. The goal here isn't to deliver an experience on par with your competitors. The goal is to be the obvious leader in your industry.

Common Inbound Marketing Channels


Organic Search Results (SEO)

Ranking for the right search terms in an online search is without question the most effective inbound marketing channel for most types of websites.

Content Marketing

Content Marketing

Building a following and providing interesting content that people want to share is an avenue unto itself as well as an effective SEO tool.

Social Media

Social Media

If your product/service/content hits the right emotional triggers, social media is the channel that makes that content go viral and drive traffic.

A Marketing Paradigm Shift

You'll notice that amongst our services we don't even list "old" outbound marketing channels. Why is this? In a nutshell:

Why try to buy customers with traditional “outbound marketing” when consumers aren’t even paying attention?

  • 45% of direct mail never gets opened and simply kills trees
  • Over half of the population is on the Do Not Call registry
  • 85% of people fast forward through commercials
  • 84% of 25­–35 year-olds are likely to click off a website with excessive advertising
  • You'll win the lottery before you get someone to convert off a banner ad

"Simply put, "buying" customers is no longer an effective strategy. In the modern digital age, you earn your customers."

In the days of marketing past, the strategy was more or less to interupt the consumers' activity and hopefully distract them into purchasing your product. A TV commercial is a prime example. Sure, some people watch the Superbowl "just for the ads" but that's the one and only time (and can we all agree, even Superbowl ads have lost most of their entertainment value). The inbound marketing strategy is to make YOU the TV show that people are switching to in the first place. Why by the ad next to the story when you can be the story?

While it may seem like this is much harder than simply paying for ad space, the truth is just the opposite. It's no longer necessary to be the loudest voice with the largest budget. It's no longer necessary to come up with the most clever ad campaign. Now you just have to be willing to share your expertise in an honest way. It actually takes less time and has a dramatically higher ROI.
