In a post earlier this year, Paul Roetzer explained what he called, the
Dawn of the Inbound Marketing Agency
: "'wired PR firms,' 'digital PR firms' and 'Internet PR firms,' will redefine the industry, and, in the process, give birth to a new category of agency - the inbound marketing agency."
Paul, who runs
and is a HubSpot friend and
, was in Cambridge last week. I had a chance to sit down with him to hear more about his inbound marketing agency vision.
The full video from our conversation is below. Here are a few of the highlights:
On the social media success of Carrara Companies, a PR 20/20 client that sells cleaning and restoration services:
"What will a cleaning and restoration company do on social media? ... in their case they have expertise in all kinds of areas. Mold removal, what to do after a fire, carpet cleaning ... all that content can position them as experts."
On a real estate client featured in The Cleveland Plain Dealer:
"That client paid $99 for us to write a blog post. It was then covered in Cleveland.com, generated an inbound link and made the front page of the business section the next day. That's why we say, traditional PR and online PR, there is no difference any more. Agencies that are only doing traditional are missing tons of opportunities."
