Many people throw the term “inbound marketing” around as a methodology they should practice on a website to attract visitors and generate quality leads. What some may not know is that when we, LevelTen Interactive, say “Open Enterprise Pro is Inbound Marketing Ready," it means that we believe in building websites that have been structured and built based on the principles of the Inbound Marketing Methodology.
Why Inbound Ready Websites Work
One of the major pillars of Inbound Marketing is the ability for prospects and customers to easily find you. Before any site building is done, a major factor to the website is making sure URL structure is structured so that from the beginning the website is set up for optimal SEO friendly links.
Apart from having SEO friendly links, it is also imperative to optimize your website pages for SEO, Page Titles, Meta Descriptions, and Image. Fortunately, LevelTen has built a foundation that makes sure these steps are done when creating any new piece of content. Remember, the goal of these pages is to build authority and searchability to your businesses website.
Inbound Websites are Informative
An inbound website is your point of contact when your business is in off-hours. Offering your visitors whitepapers and eBooks encourages them to keep coming back to your website. By creating a workflow around your offers, your website is set up to nurture your visitors.
Blog posts are also a great way to frequently update your website with useful information. Making the blog visible from the homepage will attract users to click around the website and make them learn more about your company and helpful information.
Inbound websites always allow the visitor to share content. Creating remarkable content triggers visitors to engage and share said content. Sharing buttons on a website are key for letting strangers find you website and begin to attract more visitors and generate quality traffic.
Remember those offers of whitepapers and eBooks we mentioned above? Those let you capture leads on your website. When asking a visitor to download the free premium offers, always ask for their basic information such as their name, email, company, and phone number. This type of engagement will let you know what type of people come to your website and also help you build your email list.
Summary: Always follow these marketing actions
