An example of inbound marketing is any company’s content blog. In the case of an office of a business agency, a good example of inbound marketing would be to make an entry in the content blog with the steps that companies must follow when requesting the government aid granted by the covid-19.
Why is Inbound Marketing fashionable?
We live in a world of information abundance and lack of attention, and the pace of information creation is accelerating and will continue to accelerate more and more. According to IBM, we now create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day, so much so that 90% of the data in today’s world has been created in the last two years alone. Today’s buyers have more power. The digital ecosystem provides them with instant information. They can access detailed specifications, pricing, and product and service reviews, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in just a few clicks. This is due in part to the widespread use of mobile phones. Inbound Marketing is so powerful because responding to the consumer who is looking for information about a certain product or service gives a lot of authority to the brand that has generated such information with respect to its competitors.
The consumer decides when
Historically brands have focused on advertising in a unidirectional way, that is, targeting the consumer, more or less intrusively. Inbound marketing has been a revolution in marketing because this direction has changed. Now the consumer decides when he or she is willing to receive advertising about a certain product or service. This usually occurs when the user searches for information about it.
