“I hate cold outreach.”
It seems like a necessary evil – Cold calls, cold emails, InMail… It’s socially awkward, uncomfortable, and probably somewhat illegal (GDPR?). And when you do reach the right prospect and get them to engage, it’s usually the wrong time for them, so you have to set reminders and check back. But the moment you stop the cold calls, the pipeline dries up. Not necessarily.
Consider this… If HubSpot stopped all paid advertising tomorrow, they’d still get 15 million monthly unique visitors. Canva would get 74M and Wise would get 30M.
Eventually every successful B2B company makes the jump to inbound, because it’s scalable, predictable, and self-sustaining. The best part is, it’s not particularly hard or expensive. But it does take time to get the flywheel turning, and most companies start too late.
It’s never too early to start your inbound marketing flywheel and build a steady flow of qualified leads.
Now we have almost a hundred people singing from the same hymn sheet…
Absolutely worth it, it will stay with us forever.

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll work specifically on your business to crank up the inbound machine so you can:
Find steady streams of qualified traffic across search, video & social
Engage prospects early, before they start comparing prices, features, and specs
Re-organise and surface your best existing content to work harder at each stage of the buyer journey
Use content to reduce anxiety and increase trust and urgency
Create irresistible “lead magnets” to fill your database with prospects
Set up lead scoring to help your sales team focus on the hottest leads
Stop wasting “social proof” and pick testimonials that really work
Draft and automate lead nurture sequences to earn trust, boost urgency and address common objections among “cooler” prospects
What You’ll Get:
Whether you’re optimising your home page, or testing landing pages for your ads, you’ll get tools you can use right away, including:
A step-by-step process to turn your customer interview insights into landing pages that convert
Proven examples of winning pages from a variety of industries and use cases, including B2B, B2C, marketplaces and mobile apps
A simple test to spot comprehension issues before you publish your page
Answers to common questions like “How long should a page be?” and “What if I have multiple customer personas?”
Who should attend?
ounders and marketers at any stage who need to:
Feed their sales team with more leads
B2B’s who need to get better at turning visitors into SQLs
B2Cs who need to improve conversion for a “considered purchase” category
Zoom in on the most important parts of the business to focus your work and simplify resource decisions (e.g. spend, build, hire). You’ll spot and unblock constraints, and find and build out growth loops
Give everyone a simple scoreboard so they can see how they’re doing, and understand how their work contributes to the company’s success. This will help individuals prioritise better, align and focus the team, and reduce silos and politics.
Have more productive conversations with key leaders and investors, because you're working from a common set of assumptions
What kinds of business models will we cover?
Simple B2C acquisition funnels (quick impulse-buy, DTC)
Longer slower “Considered purchase” funnels (B2B and B2C)
Enterprise B2B sales (lead-gen, nurture, sales)
Marketplaces (2- and 3-sided)
Mobile apps, traffic, installs through retention
Viral / product-driven growth
Subscription / retention-driven businesses (B2B and B2C)
Content & inbound traffic models (incl. SEO and Influencer)
First, you’ll distill your business into a simple flow diagram. Then, you’ll identify key levers that drive your growth engine so you can prioritise areas of focus. This will also help you spot problems early if things aren’t lining up with your growth model.
What is a growth model, exactly?
“We went from 7 leads per month to 70 leads per week almost overnight using the Inbound process and techniques we learned from Nopadon. It really came down to finding the right lead magnets. I cannot recommend this approach highly enough.”

Why are “growth models” critical?
When each person works from a different mental model (investors, product people, marketers, etc.) they each act from their own set of assumptions: E.g. product people want to research and build… marketing people want to buy ads or do branding… engineers want to refactor code or do iOS15 updates, compliance wants to comply and lawyers want to keep you out of jail (crazy, I know 🤷🏻♂️). Chaos ensues because everyone’s moving in different directions, and everyone passionately believes their thing is the most important thing in the company.
Simply put, your growth model lets you establish a common language, and give everyone a simple mental model to understand how their own work contributes to your overall growth.
Build a steady flow of qualified inbound leads so you don’t have to depend on cold outreach – it’s surprisingly easy.
