A common question we get about how inbound marketing works is how it works with marketing a service business.
It makes sense that this question would come up, as some service businesses tend to be a little less internet savvy as other industries, but that doesn't make online marketing work any less for them.
Does inbound marketing work with service businesses? Absolutely!
In fact many B2B and B2C service businesses have active Hubspot accounts, because they understand the importance of content marketing, persona targeting and sales funnels.
What are some of the real benefits these companies see?
Sharing Your Expertise- When you sell a service, you have to also sell the fact that you know enough about the industry to be able to support the fact that you know what you are doing. Inbound marketing helps this because you quickly fill your website with articles and blog posts that support your expertise.
Each piece shows the visitor you know what you are talking about, and can answer their questions with the right answers and the confidence.
Easily Accessible Frequently Asked Questions- Selling a service guarantees someone will have questions to ask. What better way than your website to give them the answer. Not only can they easily access a frequently asked questions page, but it will cut down the time you focus on customer service to answer these questions individually.
