Inbound marketing is hands-down the most effective way to develop deeper engagement and drive behaviour change, service improvement and cost reduction in the era of the self-educating, digital savvy citizen. But getting traction when you’re new to inbound is no easy thing. When you’re not sure how to get started or struggling to get results, our inbound marketing consultancy services will get you back on track.
The ingredients of inbound success
We use a simple aviation analogy to describe all of the key elements you need to have in place for inbound success:
- A detailed and well researched strategy (your flight plan);
- An impactful website that’s designed to provide a great user experience and optimized to convert visitors to new citizen contacts (your aircraft);
- Automated systems and processes that use content to attract, nurture and activate your target audiences (your engine and fuel);
- Closed loop metrics so you can see what’s working and what isn’t (your cockpit instruments);
- An integrated approach to building the capacity, skills and culture required for successful execution, including aligning your service delivery teams to the new inbound approach and mastering your inbound platform and tools (flight school).
Whenever any one or more of these elements is missing or not aligned to your overall strategy the result will be lacklustre results, a frustrated team and a disappointing ROI.
