Those starting with 200-499 visitors per month observed an average 17 percent increase in monthly traffic. Overall, users experienced an average 13 percent increase in visitors month-to-month.1
More Low Cost Leads
Leads from Blogging, Social Media and SEO channels cost less than any outbound channel (direct mail, telemarketing, trade shows). On average, customers who use inbound services get 32% more leads per month after just three months. Among those who had not captured leads prior to inbound marketing, users on average had 33 leads per month after 5 to 7 months. This number increased to 103 leads per month among customers who used inbound marketing for at least 11 months.1
