As a last resort, you could try cold calling by phone. This is probably the most depressing and soul destroying activity on the planet. Even if you get past the usual questions such as ‘If you’re selling something – I’m not interested’ and ‘How did you get my number?’ you need a really slick and professional script and the ability to recognize and avoid lonely old ladies who just want to interact with someone, anyone, in fact.
The stats these days between Inbound and Outbound Marketing are rather staggering. Marketing has evolved over the years. Especially with the advent of social media and content marketing, people no longer rely on advertisements (or 'outbound marketing') to learn about new products, services or opportunities. The new marketing communication (or 'inbound marketing') has become a two-way dialogue and much of this is facilitated by social media.
