Inbound marketing is all about content. Identify a specific target market so that you can understand their motivations. Distribute content through social media channels, on your company’s website, on your blog, etc. Put the message in the right places. What is that person interested in, what does that person care about, what type of information is the person interested in? Then look at your own resources and begin building content to tie back to your target audience. TALENT SOLUTIONS 22
