Inbound Marketing isn’t the new kid on the block anymore. It is becoming mainstream. Traditional outbound methods are losing ground. Not only do they turn out to be inefficient, they are also annoying to target audiences.

Inbound Marketing starts with a deep understanding of (potential) customers. Based on these insights high valuable is created in order to supprise (potential) customers. Inbound Marketing is about being in the right place on the right time in order to help your target audience.

One of the biggest events around this way of doing marketing is INBOUND. The Marketing Automation Software company HubSpot created it. The event takes place in Boston. More than 19.000 people attended this years edition. I was one of them and it was my first time. The event presents a mix of inspirational keynotes and marketing- and sales sessions. I have tried to visit as many sessions as I could, ignoring my jet leg. It was a great experience and the presidential elections gave the visit to Boston an extra interesting layer. The speakers at the event couldn’t ignore the orange elifant in the room and almost all the speakers at least mentioned the fact that Trump got elected president.

I love to share some inspirational quotes I’ve picked up and hope they will inspire you as well.
