Inbound marketing is like eating a wrap instead of a sandwich: although the foods look very different from one another, they taste similar and achieve the same goal. Are we suggesting to eat a wrap instead of a sandwich? No, but it may be time to start re-thinking your marketing approach to avoid getting lost in the Subways of the world.
Inbound marketing is our secret sauce here at TANK New Media; it’s about working “smarter” and not “harder.” We know it works because we have the numbers and stats to prove it. Generating interest online through search and social campaigns is what’s trending, so why not develop a strategy? There are aspects of traditional marketing that still work, but we’re seeing a decline in cold-calling, print advertising, outdoor billboards, television commercials, and so forth.
