Increasing Your Bottom Line With Inbound Selling

(The 12th installment of No Doubt About It: It's Mobile)

 Español

In the overall scheme of developing a new marketing strategy, we should begin with what we are the most familiar with. All of us should know by now what has been working and what has not.   

I do recommend what has been working, to let it be. You can always come back to do the needed improvements. When the new is completed, including your review and you are ready to bring it all together, that is the best time to make the needed changes.

Here is where the importance of keeping records on inventory and products sold becomes. Going into a advertising campaign blitz without a history  of sales and the cost associated with it, including labor, means blind projections.

This is true for both offline and online if you are going to be out of any monies where you must wait to be paid. If you are able to, provide yourself a financial plan for unexpected inventory costs.

Up to our eleventh in our series on mobile and how to reach the Smartphone user to generate sales, we have covered a lot of possibilities

Posts one through eight pretty much was taking a good look at our basic options. Having been around since the internet’s existence, but there were some surprises.

Video was the biggest surprise,

“In fact, according to YouTube:

Mobile video consumption increases 100% every year! “

 

“Marketing videos therefore need to be able to be downloaded and enjoyed on mobile devices.”

Email was another surprise “with three-quarters of companies agreeing that email offers "excellent" to "good" ROI and with 86% of consumers saying they would absolutely like to receive promotional emails from companies they do business with at least monthly - just cannot be ignored.”

With that said, you can’t always believe what you hear or read on the internet because both video and email marketing were doomed by some. QR Codes are another one that is doomed by some, but not so.

On the ninth and tenth post,  we considered how new technologies are changing consumer behavior, especially mobile. Which will make a difference on how we reach the Smartphone user.

On the eleventh post, we looked at lead generation. "Generating leads is a marketers most important objective"  ~ digitalmarketinglighthouse.com 

Today,on our 12th installment, we are taking a look at Sales Statistics. What we are looking for is help to increase our efficiency with inbound selling. If we are successful at generating leads, the next step is to convert or sell to those leads.

“Inbound Sales is the process of focusing on individual buyers and their personal needs, points of pain, frustrations and goals. As an Inbound salesperson, it is essential that you prioritize the buyer's needs before your own.” newbreedmarketing.com
