Inbound Marketing

Enjoy increased traffic levels, warmer leads and better-aligned marketing and sales push, with metrics to develop your efforts every single time.

Taking an inbound approach to your lead generation and content marketing efforts means you're passionate about the results - you take an idea and run with it full-circle.

Inbound isn't a half-hearted attempt at resolving a few months' poor traffic, leads and sales. It's about making your website work harder and giving your marketing and sales team the best possible chance of achieving the targets you set.

If you're already confused by inbound marketing, HubSpot, lead generation, content marketing an wondering what it all means, let us break it down...

01

Content Marketing

The core activity you undertake, it's the blog posts, emails and social campaigns, ebooks and video marketing you produce.

02

Lead Generation

The term given to your website's process of converting a website visitor into a lead - someone who has provided their contact details in exchange for something that they deem of similar value, i..e an ebook. It fills your pipeline with contacts who've actively chosen to take an interest in you, who like you, as opposed to being cold-called, and taken off-guard by this intrusion, for instance.

03

HubSpot

The platform of choice for most inbound marketing agencies, ourselves included, who coined the term inbound marketing to begin with, and whose software can automate many of the content marketing activities you'd need to undertake to truly follow an inbound marketing approach.

Now, Inbound...

Inbound marketing is a belief system, a way of life... it’s the way you disseminate your content and your approach to your wider marketing strategy - it’s when you choose to NOT put your marketing messages on billboards and in radio advertising (outbound marketing), but instead on wholesome content, written to suit a particular client base and placed where they generally consume content (social, blogs, industry publications).

It's all about educating your carefully-considered ideal client with the information you know they will love to consume and will enjoy great benefits from. It's about being looked at as a trustworthy, knowledgeable organisation, who, when they need your services, will be the first and only call for help. 

Example

Thriveability Plan

A key factor in taking an inbound approach to marketing and sales is that you will need a vast marketing library of on-brand, persona relevant blog posts and gated resources (ebooks, online calculators, etc.).

We produced the Thriveability Plan as a solution to our own internal frustrations with inbound marketing, we've been fans of inbound for over five years now. Initially, however, we struggled to make full use of HubSpot's power and how to really embrace inbound because we lacked content, it didn't help that we were a brand new organisation, so branded content was scarce. Today, the Thriveability Plan is a year-long content strategy that we will produce for you, providing 12 months of content ideas for blog posts, premium content, etc. It also helps to define your target audience and identified key business goals for marketing sales and management. There will be a number of key deliverables that fall out of your Thriveability Plan including:

  • Keyword research
  • Competitor review
  • Buyer personas workshop
  • Website and marketing audit
  • HubSpot recommendations
  • Premium content offers
  • 12-month content plan

Buyer Personas

If you’re not looking for a content marketing plan, we still offer our bespoke Buyer Personas Workshop to help you understand your target audience, their challenges, objectives and how you can engage with them to resolve their marketing issues. The session is typically run at our offices, lasting for a half-day and will include an outline of content marketing, buyer personas and the completion of one buyer persona profile. We recommend you bring with you a mix of personnel, including marketing, sales, management and customer-facing employees. It's a creative session, where no answer is a wrong answer, and it's guaranteed to reveal some quick wins - as well as a robust foundation - for your business' marketing and sales strategy. 

HubSpot Training

We’ve been immersed in the HubSpot platform for over five years now, with specialists holding a range of certifications in our team. Whether you're looking for support to improve your existing HubSpot CMS-built website, sales enablement and CRM training, or specific support for using HubSpot's powerful marketing platform, we can create a bespoke HubSpot training programme for your team. An ideal solution or those who have ended their relationship with a HubSpot Partner Agency, are starting their HubSpot journey without a partner in place, or if you're looking to get started with Thrive as their preferred Partner Agency (yay!). 

Growth Driven Design

A traditional website build takes approximately six months but can be as long as a two-year project. Website builds are often seen by businesses as a hugely encompassing, 'all-hands-on-deck' project, but it shouldn't be. Growth Driven Design allows for a website that is continually and consistently evolving in stages that make sense and is built on regular feedback and data, as well as the natural improvements in your marketing strategy. Focusing on three priorities of reduced risk, continual improvement, and the alignment of sales and marketing, GDD works brilliantly when side-by-side with a lead generation gameplan and inbound marketing approach.
