Like most forms of marketing, you can take SEO and inbound marketing as far as you like, as long as you have the money to invest in it. Some folks have time to learn good online marketing tactics and implement them, while still managing their business. Others have enough free cash to hire a team of experts to manage their online marketing.
It's easy to feel like you're under pressure to embrace a set of marketing ideas that perhaps no one in your organization has any experience with – and smart entrepreneurs know that's a recipe for trouble. Trying to implement processes you don't understand rarely works out well.
Yet, some companies just need to get online and get rolling with inbound marketing as quickly and as smoothly as possible. These are the companies that can benefit most from HubSpot website templates – with some effort, you can go from having little or no online presence to having an SEO-ready website that's the perfect starting point for your inbound marketing efforts.
Obviously, ready-designed HubSpot templates are not going to offer all the benefits of a completely customized approach. None the less, they can be a great kickstart for those looking to do SEO for their site and who see the importance of hitting the ground early.
