Here we are, excited for an aggressive marketing year and ready to tell you what we're focusing on in 2020 and what we recommend you focus on: CUSTOMER INTENT. This has been our buzz phrase for the month's leading up to 2020. Here's why it matters...Google has already been talking about search intent for all of last year. They have been serving search results based on perceived search intent, not specific keyword phrases anymore. So, this should have shifted everyone's content strategy. 

For our clients, we've stepped back and instead of building our inbound strategies around personas and a buyer's journey, we've also now layered on intent paths. And each persona may have a different set of intent paths and need a separate customer journey. In short, 2020 inbound marketing just became a whole h*ll of a lot more complicated. But, more aligned with revenue-generating business goals.

Our January roundup is full of resources and ideas to help. Let’s get started!
