Over the past view years, Inbound marketing has completely crushed traditional marketing in every way. While the inbound community has grown and more and more people around the globe are embracing this powerful methodology, some are still reluctant. Many business owners are stuck in the old ways of doing things, believing traditional outbound methods are reliable. According to Hubspot’s State of Inbound Report, 54% more business leads are generated by inbound tactics than traditional paid marketing. 2X as many marketers say inbound delivers below average cost per lead than outbound methods. $20K is what the average companies save per year by investing more in inbound marketing vs. outbound.

These stats are often enough to peak a prospect's interest, but trying to overcome years of doing things “the traditional way” is often the hardest barrier to break through. One of the common challenges I see is a lack of understanding of what Inbound is and how it can and does grow businesses. Check out the infographic below to see why Inbound is the best option for business looking to grow!
