Traditional outbound marketing is where your customers discover you through a variety techniques intended to reach an unspecified group of people. These outbound marketing techniques may include trade shows, seminars, email blasts, cold calling, telemarketing, or other printed advertisements.

Most organizations are still spending 90% of their marketing budgets on outbound marketing campaigns. With little to no knowledge about how successful these marketing campaigns are doing, it makes it almost impossible to track or calculate the return on your investment (ROI).

On the other end of the marketing spectrum is inbound marketing. An inbound marketing system is where your customers find you, mostly through various paid and natural search engine marketing strategies. These inbound marketing systems make it much easier to connect with a specific target audience and track the success of your marketing efforts. It is especially crucial to continue to monitor these systems. Your attention to detail will help you reach the right audience, while providing them with the most current or relevant information about your products and company.
