There’s no question that inbound marketing is the future of marketing, but when you’re first starting out it can seem overwhelming. Between blogging, landing pages, data analysis and all the different social media networks out there it can be difficult to decide where to start on your inbound journey.
Managing all the aspects of inbound marketing can be a full-time job; so, if your business doesn’t have an expert team dedicated to just inbound techniques these tasks can be hard to juggle. Sure it would be awesome to have someone dedicated to blogging, and someone to focus on social media, while you have another content writer pumping out premium offers like e-books and webinars. Not to mention the daily analysis that is imperative for this kind of constant growing and evolving form of marketing. And maybe someday you will have that, but for now it wouldn’t help to have a little outside help to get you started.
That's where Hubspot comes in.
Hubspot has turned inbound marketing into a step-by-step process using software to automate and assist you in almost every way possible. This software takes the guesswork out of the actual process and allows you to focus on the fun part.
Some helpful HubSpot resources:
