Time to Re-Assess Marketing Strategies and Capitalize on Good News for Manufacturers in 2015

According to recent Kiplinger reports, American manufacturing as a whole promises to be another good year for 2015. Kiplinger reports annual growth of about 3.5%, which is modestly better than the entire U.S. economy. Lending credence to that is the latest Manufacturing ISM® Report on Business®, which tell us that economic activity in the manufacturing sector expanded in November for the 18th consecutive month, and the overall economy grew for the 66th consecutive month.


While the reports look promising, manufacturing companies need to be sure their industrial marketing strategies are in place. Indeed, this means that low hanging fruit may be ripe and ready for you to gather … with the right tools and methods in place. A recent survey by HubSpot, with input from more than 3,500 marketers, sheds some light on how B2B companies—including manufacturing companies—are using inbound marketing methodologies to increase their ROI on marketing efforts.


More than 80% of B2B marketers are using inbound marketing compared to 60% last year. Inbound marketers are experiencing a greater impact on ROI over previous years. We have reduced the 54-page study on the “State of Inbound Marketing” to 10 powerful slides that you can download now.
