Could an old-school intervention provide a ground-breaking replacement to treat conditions, and even replace the need for certain pharmaceuticals? Not only is it possible, but it’s happening as the industry finds new ways to use bioelectronics, also known as electroceuticals.

Inbound marketing is the most powerful lead gen methodology for businesses in complex industries. It helps companies attract the right prospects, convert them to leads, close the sale by responding to their behaviors, and continue to delight them so they become your promoters. And most marketers understand that the best B2B marketing plans combine traditional and inbound techniques. That’s when many chime in with, “Yeah, that’s digital marketing!”
While digital marketing may include blogs, SEO, email, and social media, inbound is really ALL of them working holistically and strategically. It’s this unified, thoughtfully integrated approach that amplifies your efforts exponentially, producing far greater results than those things on their own. Only with the right mix of inbound strategy and tactics can you fulfill today’s B2B buyer journey.
