The best sales pitch ever is no sales pitch at all - they say. There is something in this statement. Let me explain it to you. Let's take a two buzzwords under the loop: permission marketing (Seth Godin) is about reaching out to people after they have given you perminision to. No more interruption marketing. inbound marketing is about attracting people to your business or website who are looking for information you have expertise in. Blogging, social media, search marketing are three channels for inbound marketing. Difference here is you are telling interested audience about service or product which can help them. You are not adressing your sales pitch to a random stranger. Huge difference.
