CALCULATE YOUR ROI

What is inbound marketing?

Inbound marketing is a data-driven marketing approach, focused on attracting the right people to your business website. The inbound marketing methodology is all about guiding prospects through the buyer’s journey, using a range of different content to provides useful information to aid decision-making.

There are lots of great tools, tactics and techniques that Financial Services companies can use to drive successful inbound marketing campaigns. Inbound marketing is all about creating relevant, SEO-friendly content tailored to the needs, challenges and pain points of your personas (ideal customers). The content should educate, inform and provide solutions at key touchpoints along the buyer’s journey.

Inbound marketing fundamentals

What is the buyer’s journey?

The buyer’s journey consists of the stages of readiness to buy. The journey is split into three stages. See our graphic below, which shows the types of content you can create for each stage

Why is inbound marketing important for the Financial Services industry?
Inbound marketing for financial industries

The Financial Services industry is evolving fast, with new technologies driving change in the sector. FinTech businesses and SaaS companies are increasingly adopting more modern, data-driven marketing approaches to lead generation. Inbound marketing is the most cost-effective marketing approach, boasting proven ROI and long-term success.

Marketers in the Financial Services industry must differentiate their business from others in the market to stand out from the competition. It's vital for FinTech start-ups and growing financial businesses to drive leads online. Creating thought-leadership content and providing prospects with solutions to their challenges, backed by strategic SEO, helps to drive quality leads to your website, without relying on a big advertising budget.  

The sales cycle in the Finance industry can be lengthy, due to the complex nature of the products and services being considered. In the B2B world, especially, buyers don’t make snap decisions. Stakeholders and key decision-makers need to build a business case, so lead nurturing plays a key role in inbound marketing.

Inbound FinTech can help your company to reach its target audience throughout the buyer’s journey. Our inbound campaigns build trust and educate prospects, whilst clearly communicating the key differentiators and benefits of your products and services.

customer-centric marketing strategy

Customer-centric marketing campaigns using the inbound methodology

 

Why is customer-centricity in lead generation so important? Putting customer needs before business goals helps brands to understand what makes their customers tick. It’s often the case that an organisation’s perception of what customers want is widely different from the reality. Inbound marketing is a truly customer-centric marketing approach, as it places customer needs at the heart of all campaigns and content.

The key difference between inbound and outbound marketing is that inbound is “pull” marketing rather than “push” marketing. Inbound content acts as a magnet, which pulls the right people towards your business, due to its focus on helping customers rather than just selling to them. Outbound marketing often feels pushy, which can be off-putting for prospects, especially in the Financial Services industry where the sales cycle is longer than in many other industries.

The inbound methodology is all about generating a lead pipeline, from attracting visitors to your website to capturing leads via content offers, and nurturing these leads down the funnel for sales to convert them. Customer retention incentives and customer service help to increase customer lifecycle value (CLV) and encourage customers to become advocates.
