Orchestration Is The Key To Successful Inbound Marketing Lead Generation

Everyone knows marketing needs to be integrated, but do you know the definition of integrated marketing?

According to the DMA, "integrated marketing is an approach to creating a unified and seamless experience for consumers to interact with the brand/enterprise; it attempts to meld all aspects of marketing communication, such as advertising, sales promotion, public relations, direct marketing and social media, through their respective mix of tactics, methods, channels, media and activities so that all work together as a unified force. It is a process designed to ensure that all messaging and communications strategies are consistent across all channels and are centered on the customer."

But look up orchestrated marketing and you only find a handful of articles placed sporadically over the past few years. When you overlay inbound marketing, we think integration isn’t enough to truly make inbound marketing the lead generation machine it has the potential to be and that orchestration — all inbound marketing tactics working in seamless harmony (like a symphony)  is one of the secrets to success from inbound.
