Classic outbound marketing is a great way to reach large numbers of your target audience quickly, through general media advertising and face-to-face meetings. The aim of outbound marketing is to drive interest and generate sales – critical for businesses looking to gain customers. New leads are then followed up by internal sales representatives.
Outbound marketing is all about initiating a conversation with customers by sending a message. If the message is too individualised, this broad marketing tactic would become less cost-effective.
The primary feature of outbound marketing is familiarity: for example, consumers are accustomed to television and radio advertising. Even direct mail, which may be quickly consigned to the recycling box, is non-threatening.
