An Inbound Marketing Foundation

The foundation of The Academy is a belief in The Inbound Methodology. In summary, Inbound is a business methodology that attracts customers by creating valuable content and experiences tailored to them. While an outbound approach interrupts your audience with content they usually don’t want or doesn’t relate to them, an inbound approach forms connections they are looking for and solves problems they already have.

The inbound methodology can be applied to your marketing, sales and even your operations to “turn your company’s flywheel” and grow your business.

Learning to Turn Your Flywheel

The flywheel is a business model that illustrates the momentum your organization can gain by prioritizing and delivering exceptional customer experience. When you align your marketing, sales and operations to acquire and retain customers, this effort builds momentum and reduces friction on your flywheel. Eventually, as you apply more of the right forces on your flywheel and continually reduce friction, it will spin faster and faster until it begins to spin on its own without additional forces.
