Why Early Stage Companies and Startups Should Create Healthy Marketing Processes Early On

Startups start by selling to people they know. They build their pipeline in the beginning stages by working people in their network.  When you start a company you are likely using your network as your only strategy up front. You started your company because you saw a need or a challenge in the world that you thought you could solve for. So you started a company. Good. That is awesome! But, you need to stop thinking in the "now" and start thinking in the "future" too. The now will soon turn into a year later, two years later, and hopefully 10 years later. The decisions you make about marketing early on are more important than you might think. Planning and strategizing on the early stages of your marketing plan are important.

This was like 7 years ago...They were at MIT together in grad school and came up with this concept that no one had ever heard of before. They decided to start a blog about inbound marketing because they saw that the marketing space was moving in a direction and they wanted to take advantage of it.
