With inbound marketing, you may not have to reach out to your customers and catch their eye. The onus of researching the product they’re looking for is on the customer. They’re the ones who get personal referrals or referrals from social media. They’re the ones who follow up on recommendations from bloggers or articles they’ve read. They’re the ones who reach out to you because they’re interested in what you’re selling.
However, this doesn’t mean that you don’t have to do anything whatsoever to grab their attention and make the sale. You also need to make sure that you suck the consumer in when they come to your website. Make it so appealing that the customer isn’t going to want to leave, at least not without making a purchase.
How do you do this? One of the best ways that content marketers and SEO gurus have come up with recently is storytelling. Storytelling might be a recent development in the business world but it’s really as old as the hills. Even the Ancient Greeks knew how to tell a story, as we can see from the example of Homer. Storytelling may have changed over the years but in many ways, the basics are still the same.
