Review

Covering everything from website design to creating strategy, the book is a well-written and (somewhat) entertaining take on how to use the web to create a successful sales strategy (Entrepreneur Middle East, January 2015)

From the Back Cover

This fully updated and revised edition of Inbound Marketing builds on the enormous international success of the book that launched the inbound marketing movement. It provides the new playbook you need to get more free traffic from Google, build a business blog, create a social media following and analyze which of your marketing efforts are working.

With coverage of updated Search Engine Optimization tactics and the latest tools to build a social media following, marketing experts and HubSpot founders Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah provide detailed advice on how to get found online and convert visitors to leads and customers.

This fully updated edition includes new material??on the impact social media has on search and also provides a high-level overview of what viral marketing actually is. Inside you’ll find:

  • New sections on visual content, tools as content, and Google+
  • A new chapter on viral marketing for mere mortals
  • A bonus section on startup/entrepreneurial marketing

With Inbound Marketing, you'll gain access to insights from thousands of companies that have seen the power of this new model work for their own companies.

“If you’ve been looking for a trustworthy primer on getting found online, here’s a great place to start. Buy one for your clueless colleague too.”
—SETH GODIN, author of Meatball Sundae

For social media marketing courses aimed at lead generation and nurturing, Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah offer a complete primer on the subject. Their Inbound Marketing book provides a cradle-to-grave formula for applying social channels, SEO and content marketing as a substitute for outdated outbound marketing techniques.

The book, in my opinion, qualifies academically as a primary reading for select undergraduate level courses focused on lead nurturing. The recommendation is based on the following:

1) As pioneers in the field, the authors provide a convincing argument why marketing should be taught using non-interrupting, permissive approaches to trust building. Especially at a time when scholars and practitioners are bombarded with complex optimization strategies, brand storytelling trends, ever changing mobile marketing strategies and costly engagement tactics, this book serves as a refresher as to why we got here in the first place. Concepts like building remarkable content, using your website as a marketing hub, designing effective landing pages and strategic placing the right calls to action are often lost in today’s overcrowded library of content marketing books.

2) The book is well organized to fit a funnel strategy especially useful for sales personnel. Early chapters deal with getting found by prospects through quality content, social media and legitimate SEO tactics. Subsequent chapters take readers through the sales conversion process while updating us on visual content and software tools. Most books take the opposite approach, thereby making the case for revenue generation rather weak.

The work of Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah have not only changed marketing forever, but changed selling as well. As a sales leadership coach, I help my clients pick up where marketing leaves off to get new business faster. Companies that embrace what the pages of Inbound Marketing explain end up transforming their entire sales model. They get a lot more prospects with a lot less effort and cost, and must reconfigure the sales team to accommodate. These new Inbound prospects have their own set of challenges from a sales perspective but it's a high-class problem for most companies. This book is as much hands-on and actionable as it is marketing theory. I particularly liked the chapters on converting visitors and prospects into leads. Getting the "calls to action" right is critical and nobody gets this better than these two Hubspot guys. I'm not sure how you can be working effectively anywhere near the marketing and sales departments at your company without the information that Brian and Dharmesh have shared with us in the pages of Inbound Marketing.

it's a short book but has a lot of useful information and good tips. If you have any experience in online marketing, google ads, etc. you will know a lot of the info, but this book gives an added bonus by showing ways to apply your knowledge (and of course refreshing any of that knowledge) to an immediate strategy to begin your inbound marketing plans. I am glad I read it and plan on using its lessons

Three cheers for the founders of HubSpot who wrote their own soft sell. It’s not to say that the book does not accurately cover all the dive-in layers of Inbound Marketing available. It does, and offers broad insight for how any business could harness such. Since I enjoy analytics and analysis, I enjoyed the topics covered for the importance of measuring what works, how you know what works, and letting go of what is non productive. Conversion is a reality pill that does not come with a spoonful of sugar at times. Numbing analytic analysis is hard for most businesses to swallow. I also agree with what is covered concerning intrusion marketing, and why it has no room in online marketing. Digressing though, the chapter covering SEO is 50% up to speed with 50% behind. That’s Verizon’s uploads equally downloads motto these days. It is definitely not written to provide an non techie entrepreneur sufficient panoramas. If you’re an online marketer, add this book to your library. Will it make you wiser? That I think will depend on your real world experiences as well as education level. Will it refresh or possibly have you reassess? Maybe, it again will depend on your optic of inbound.

This is a fabulous book! This edition is nicely revised and updated to reflect the last "awfully fast-moving trends" in Organic Marketing. There is another poorly written review that tells me absolutely nothing. There was no lure to buy anything. In fact, Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah did a magnificent job analyzing the differences between traditional public relationships, inbound and outbound marketing as it relates to Organic Marketing - spot on! In fact, both of them are a class acts. KUDOS!

"Just as the rules from door-to-door didn’t translate to out- bound mass marketing, the rules from outbound marketing do not apply to inbound marketing. You can’t simply move your advertising budget and 30-second TV spot, online—it won’t work. Pushing a message at a potential customer when that message has not been requested will fail as a major source of new customers, and by extension, revenue, for most companies."

If you are starting out, or need to fine-tune (wipe out the old and hit the refresh button), this book is a must-read for everyone, not just college students. The folks at Hubspot do a great job. More so, they are not afraid to share epic content in the clouds with us - at no extra cost.
