- Generate traffic on your website
You must have a good natural referencing on your websites, blogs, social networks… For that, take care of your keywords ! They have to be relevant in order to grow up your audience. Indeed, if you have a good referencing, you improve your visibility in the SERPs. Social networks are a good way to promote your image and to exchange with potential customers.
- Acquire new prospects

Offer different subscriptions to your visitors, such as participating in a contest, receiving a newsletter, having a premium advantage… Encourage your visitors to have an interest for your company when they are coming on your website landing page.
- Turn your prospects into your new customers
Build trust between your prospects and your company. Have a quality communication of with them. Show them how you can improve their lives in any way, and make them want to buy them. You can take small steps towards this goal. First of all, a CRM tool is necessary for managing large amounts of client relationships and understanding your clients. Then, you can combine this information with outbound marketing techniques (e-mailing, newsletters, ads and retargeting campaigns).
Inbound marketing is a strategy less aggressive than outbound marketing, in which you take the product to the customer (through an advertisement or an e-mail, for example). Don’t impose yourself, but seduce the potential customers. This is also known as push & pull marketing, which you can read more about by clicking here.
