Is all the media hype on B2B entering marketing justified? Do incoming marketing provide more high quality selling wicks at a lower cost? This article considers these issues and compares with traditional outgoing marketing.
There is little doubt that the effectiveness of traditional outgoing marketing is declining. Consumers are more resistant to marketing techniques than ever before. With the rise of potential customers on the Internet, potential customers are much more likely to search for the information they need. They are likely to examine the exams and comments of their peers online as a contribution to their decision-making process.
The poor practice and overuse of outgoing marketing techniques such as telemarketing and email marketing have built strong resistance to these techniques. There is a general cynical response to advertising and the use of printed media is declining. All these problems have contributed to a constant decline in the use of outgoing B2B marketing.

Incoming marketing is to inform, create credibility and ensure that the company is front. Unlike outgoing marketing, it is not invasive but relies on the company entering the company to find out more.
The quality of the incoming prospects is much higher with the draw marketing than with outgoing. The head is also more likely to come to a subsequent stage of the sales process.

Outgoing marketing is not dead but changed only. Many traditional outgoing techniques are modified to support the B2B incoming marketing process. They can speed up the process and improve the results. What is required is a mix of the best outgoing and incoming marketing can offer and no more media threshing.
