Inbound Marketing

We create compelling content to attract the right customers that want your services.

What is Inbound Marketing?

Inbound Marketing focuses on creating quality content that draws your potential customers IN to your business and brand. Today’s customers are already searching for answers online, researching your industry, checking out your competitors, and trying to decide if they really need your service or product.

The goal is to have content that speaks to all of these scenarios and stages of the buying process in order to capture interested prospects where they naturally live online.

By developing an Inbound Marketing Strategy that helps direct and focus the content you publish with strong regard to your customer’s interests, you naturally attract inbound traffic that you can then convert, close and create loyal followers over time.

Cloud14 Marketing’s approach to Inbound Marketing takes a view of your business, your stakeholders, your prospects and your customers; delivering strategic campaigns that increase value at every stage of the buyer & customer journey.

Once you have your personas and buyer journeys worked out, the next step is to map content that addresses the challenges your customers face during each step in the process. 

The goal of the content developed should be to address the buyers challenges and gain buyer confidence such that they move fully through the buying process.

The Buyer’s Journey as outline below is a process that helps direct the development of specific content.

The Buyer's Journey

The buyer’s journey is the process that buyers go through
to become aware, evaluate and purchase a new product or service.
The journey is a three-step process:

Stage 1

Stage 2

Stage 3

The buyer realizes they have a problem that needs a solution

The buyer defines their problem and researches for options

After reviewing all information the buyer chooses a solution.

During the Awareness stage, buyers identify their challenge or an opportunity they want to pursue. They also decide whether or not the goal or challenge should be a priority.

During the Consideration stage, buyers have clearly defined their goal or challenge and have committed to addressing it. They evaluate the different approaches or methods available to solve their challenge.

In the Decision stage, buyers have already decided on a solution. For example, they could write a pro/con list of specific offerings and then decide on the one that best meets their needs.
