Why you need inbound marketing

People don’t become customers overnight. Typically they start out as random visitors to your website, or someone you bump into at a networking event. Transforming that casual contact into a customer for life is a multistage process that begins as a prospect gradually learns about what you do, how you operate as a company, and eventually hires you.

Inbound marketing pulls together digital marketing tools such as your website, social media, and email programs to help transform a random stranger into a raving fan. And it all starts with an offer the prospect can’t refuse.  We’ve pulled together some of our favorite conversations about inbound marketing.

about the show

It started as a conversation with friends. When someone would drop by Roundpeg, Lorraine would pull out her iPhone and record a bit of banter. From those first, informal interactions with local marketing professionals, authors, and entrepreneurs, More than a Few Words, a marketing podcast was born.

Over the last decade, we’ve experimented with lots of formats including 30-minute live episodes, complete with a call-in number and a real-time Twitter feed. There were half-baked marketing ideas, conversations with marketing celebrities, lots of laughs, and good information along the way.

Today, the ten-minute conversations are heard by business owners around the world looking for practical tips and a little bit of marketing inspiration.
