Marketing today is NOT just about inbound!

This article does a decent job at explaining why. But here is the gist.

Your customers engage with different media at different times of day and for different purposes. And though categories may look and smell the same, they just may not be.

So follow the customer. If they primarily use social and search to incite purchase decisions then inbound it is. But chances are, they use more than just those channels, maybe even traditional ones like TV, radio, or dare I say, print.

Bottom line, as the article suggests, don't abandon outbound just yet…

What do you think?

Before you give up on TV, email and direct mail to create the next viral cat video, consider using a combination of inbound and outbound marketing tactics.
