Social Media and latest technology powered inbound marketing techniques have revolutionized the way business of sales in the B2B industry takes place. B2B marketers are largely using Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), LinkedIn Corp (NYSE:LNKD) and Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) to generate leads. LinkedIn is most vital as a majority of the crowd engages on the platform for serious business purposes.

Outbound marketing, also known as interrupted marketing was largely used when internet technology was in the course of development, and connecting with business firms was a slightly tedious task. Outbound marketing basically involves contacting someone through referrals, emails, direct mailings or cold calling. Although, outbound marketing techniques were successful in the days gone by, the rejection rates for emails and cold calls were also high.

Inbound marketing also known as permission or friction-less marketing is growing by leaps and bounds every year, as the customers themselves approach the business owners, looking for an association or business. B2B marketing firms must try attracting customers via content marketing and other similar inbound staples and build an image so as to attract customers and generate sales. Since the customers themselves approach in this case, B2B marketers have permission to keep themselves connected with the clients until the deal is closed.
