We’ve all heard of inbound or pull marketing. Some of us have started with social media, SEO and other initiatives – to some degree. But tech marketers need to get their arms completely around this key component of today’s marketing tool kit.
With 70 per cent of the buying process happening online, it’s no surprise that B2B buyers are more than halfway through their purchasing decision before they even think about talking to a sales rep. It’s just that easy now to get quietly educated about exactly what’s needed and who is best placed to provide it. Without the hard sell.
The fact is, if you’re still relying solely on outbound marketing to drive sales, you risk not even being part of the consideration process for many serious buyers.
Our impressive line-up of Marketing leaders will share their thoughts and experiences about inbound marketing – what it is, how to get started, and how to align your inbound and outbound efforts for best overall results.
- Johanna Delroy, National Director, Marketing, Compugen
