Let’s take a look at some articles that talk about what determines inbound marketing success.
Here’s an article from B2B Marketing Insider titled “6 Steps to Inbound Marketing Success.” Some of the key issues that the article highlight includes:
1. Create and maintain a powerful website – this is especially important for smaller businesses where there often is not a dedicated person responsible for this. You need to ensure that your site is current and functioning optimally.
2. Generate more traffic through effective blogging and social media activity. Remember, every time you blog, it equates to another web page.
3. Remember to create solid calls to action and then nurture your needs in an automated way.
