Offer your customers an extraordinary experience from the very first touch.

With industry-leading experience, we guide you towards a successful and measurable strategy for your marketing efforts.
What is inbound marketing?
Marketing your customers actually like
Inbound marketing is a smarter way to drive growth and build strong relationships. By earning your customers attention, you create meaningful marketing that provides concrete and measurable results.
Inbound marketing and outbound marketing are like yin and yang. Instead of disturbing a potential customer with an unwelcome message, you help the customer approach you by offering answers to relevant questions and solutions to common problems. When you share knowledge, you build important trust that is required for your target group to want to do business with you.
But what matters most is how you look at your marketing. Inbound marketing is about a genuine desire to understand the customer and to be generous with knowledge that creates value for the recipient.
All in one place
Digital marketing is an ecosystem. Many features and channels must work together to achieve the bigger picture. With the help of smart software and systems, you can automate a large part of the work, which streamlines both sales and the marketing efforts. Inbound marketing has the best effect if you gather everything in one tool where you can measure, evaluate and optimize all your marketing efforts.

An unbeatable experience
When we started Invise, we talked more about sales than marketing. As an agency, it seemed a bit odd, especially at a time when no one had heard of inbound marketing. But even today it is fundamental to us. We value sales and actual results more than anything else.

Inbound marketing increases sales
Behind every purchase is a maturation process. The larger the purchase, the longer the process tends to be. Inbound marketing takes this into account and facilitates the initial part of the decision. In this way, you’ll save time and can use your resources where you get the most bang for the buck - in meetings with customers, in the right target group, and with people interested in what you actually offer.
But it's not just leads
Larger customers - check. Less admin - check. Better cross-selling - check. Inbound marketing is, as you understand, more than an effective way to generate leads. When you create a solid foundation for your inbound marketing work, you have the opportunity to scale and develop everything that has to do with customer relationships. Whether it is about supporting existing sales processes, evaluating your content marketing or building a better sales pipeline, you have the foundation you need to gain valuable insights and improve your work over time.
The entire customer journey from start to finish
From the first touch to a long-term relationship that lasts for several years. It is the comprehensive understanding of the customer journey that makes inbound marketing so successful. Instead of having one strategy for marketing automation, another for content marketing and a third for social media, inbound marketing brings all activities with the target group in focus. By connecting all customer communication with your website, your sales dialogues and your customer service, inbound marketing becomes an effective method for creating unique insights for your business - and an unbeatable overall experience for your customers!
Marketing and sales complete each other
It is easy to understand the benefit of a close collaboration between sales and marketing in theory. But how do you make it work in practice? We work daily with companies that make this move. Feel free to talk to us and we will explain how to proceed.
A common misunderstanding is that the marketing department has to do half the work by creating leads for the sales reps to close. But inbound marketing works best when marketing and sales work together in a way that suits your company. Joint and tailored processes that are centered around the customer helps you optimize the internal work and contribute to seamless customer experiences.
Invise is proactive, genuine, easy to work with and always delivers with the ultimate goal in mind

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ
What is inbound marketing?
Inbound marketing is about deserving your potential customers attention by offering information and insights that create value for the recipient. By understanding the target group, your buyer personas and your target group's needs, businesses can help a potential customer in each step of the buyer's journey with helpful and educational material that takes the customer from A to Z and beyond. One example can be content in the form of blog posts, articles, posts on social media, automated emails or downloadable e-books. It can also be interactive features or user-friendly design of a website.
Inbound marketing vs outbound marketing?
Inbound marketing attracts customers by earning their attention, building trust, and helping them solve their problems. This means that you educate your target group on their terms by offering relevant communication and guiding them onto the next step in their buying journey. Examples of inbound marketing are articles, blog posts, social channel posts, personal emails, e-books, guides, checklists and videos.
With outbound marketing, you try to win customers by breaking into their everyday life with intrusive messages to convince them to buy. Examples of outbound marketing are cold calls, telemarketing, radio advertising, banners and classic newspaper ads.
What does inbound marketing cost?
The price tag on inbound marketing differs for different types of businesses. Your budget may look different depending on how much you want to invest and what results you are looking for. Other factors that affect the cost of your inbound marketing efforts are what resources you have access to internally. If you have an entire marketing team that consists of specialists with the different skills needed, you can do a lot yourself. If you do not have the right team inhouse, you may need to bring in a few different specialists from an agency.
How to create an inbound marketing strategy?
An inbound marketing strategy contains several parts, but is always based on the company's business goals. Important parts for developing a strategy are in-depth knowledge of the target group, analysis, technical solutions, content marketing, channel selection and advertising.
