You've finally committed to taking your hobby and turning it into a profitable business.
And why shouldn't you?
You love what you do…
Other people love what you do...
Your mom loves you, even though she doesn't have a clue what you do...
So why not jump off the cliff and start showing the world your talent?
You have everything you need:
- A computer
- A trendy coffee mug
- A stretched neck sweater
- And your cat, Tennessee Whiskers!
You start plugging away at your new entrepreneurial endeavor, and it is working.
Soon, all your friends and family want your talent and your offering.
You give it to them and they are actually paying you for it.
There is just one teeny, tiny problem: you only have so many friends and family members.
You realize you have to get more customers.
You do a quick Google search:
Aha Social Media marketing! - That's it!
You start an Instagram page.
You dress up whiskers in his finest buret. He's adorable...
But no one cares... meh
You go “live” and talk about your current projects:
Your Aunt Suzie won't stop sending heart emojis!
So you dig deeper.
You pay $900 for some internet guru to show you how to get leads.
Turns out you aren't willing to post half-nude click-bait photos to attract clients
You have a thought and devilishly gaze towards Mr. Whiskers.
He frowns back unenthused by your creepy thoughts of dressing him up in a bikini.
You hit a dead-end and decide to down a pint of Blue Bell while watching reruns of Seinfeld.
You pass out.
What is Hubspot?
Can I use it? Do I need it?
You click further...
Yes...Indeed….You... Need... It...!
The Power of Inbound Marketing
It turns out that there is a better way to grow your business. Because as much as most people hate the idea of being sold or pitched to, you hate the idea of having to do it too.
With Hubspot, you can reach out to and educate potential clients on what you have to offer, while also giving them extreme amounts of value for free—right from your website or blog.
This is the new sales approach, and it’s called “Inbound Marketing”.
We’ve all been there:
- Confused about a certain topic or “how to” approach it.
- So, we resort to googling the vast depths of the internet to find a better way.
- You click, scroll...click, scroll… sigh… click… curse… scroll… flip the computer desk in an acute bout of uncontrollable rage… okay a bit far...we get it. (Speaking of, be sure to check out our blog all about Inbound Marketing as a great resource)>
But what is non-fiction about the above fairy tale, is the fact that once you land on a page that offers the answers that you so desperately seek—the next time that you are in need of wisdom on that particular subject, you will know exactly where to look.
