Introduction to Inbound Marketing
Inbound marketing is a process of using your website in a way that it attracts visitors naturally through search engines, the blogosphere, and social media.
The average human today is inundated with more than 2000 outbound marketing interruptions per day – and we’re all figuring out how to block them. Caller ID, spam filters, TiVo, and satellite radio are all things we use today so that we can avoid being marketed to.
In this course, you will discover how to attract customers to your site, what kind of content to share with them, how to use landing pages and forms to collect names and email address, and how to implement lead-nurturing campaigns that result in sales.
Your instructor is a director of marketing for an international association and writes and speaks on the topic.

You have a website, but why will your customers want to come back or buy something or take action? Do you really know who you are selling to? Do you know what you want to say to them? Do you know how you want to say it?
Discover ways to identify who your ideal audience is. Learn how to create content that is engaging and purposeful. Find out what you want to say to them. Explore where you want to say it. And finally, find out how you want to say it.
In one month, you will be better equipped to create your own content marketing strategy and create a content-rich website that exceeds the needs of your visitors.
