So, you’ve heard of inbound marketing and are doing a little research to see if it’s right for your business. Let me answer your question, simply. YES. Inbound marketing can help your business acquire new leads, grow and provide analytical data that makes sense. To get straight to the point, we’ve provided three clear reasons why you need to hire an inbound marketing agency for your small business.
First off, what is inbound and how is it different from traditional [outbound] marketing techniques?
Well, in the words of HubSpot:
Instead of the old outbound marketing methods of buying ads, buying email lists, and praying for leads, inbound marketing focuses on creating quality content that pulls people toward your company and product, where they naturally want to be.
Sounds nice doesn’t it? Marketing that people actually like and want? Sold! But wait, do you need a bit more convincing? No problem. We’d be happy to brag, oops I mean, share some more information with you.
3 Clear Reasons Why You Need to Hire an Inbound Marketing Agency:
Inbound marketing WORKS and shows actual RESULTS
Just plain and simple, inbound marketing results in more leads to your business, especially when you have trained professionals at an agency managing your accounts and marketing strategy. In HubSpot’s State of Inbound Report more than twice as many respondents cited inbound (45%) as their primary source of leads versus outbound (22%). The numbers just don’t lie!

Inbound marketing is marketing that people LOVE and actually WANT
As opposed to some traditional marketing methods, inbound marketing is marketing that people actually like and want. It's helpful, educational and not pushy. An inbound marketing agency knows exactly how to do this type of marketing the right way. A good agency will know how to create the type of content such as blogs, eBooks and website copy that will result in conversions.
Inbound marketing CAN & WILL grow your business
Inbound marketing grows your business. However, the only way to ensure that is to have an agency managing your strategy for you. An inbound marketing agency knows what strategies to apply specifically to your business and industry so that you get the most results that you possibly can out of it.
Calculating the ROI of inbound marketing can be simple and you will most definitely see a return on your investment when you use a qualified agency that uses HubSpot software as a tool.
