It’s basically a strategy or methodology for attracting customers through Good Quality Content with a touch of Personalization. Inbound Marketing strategy is like having a solution for a customer's current problem.

Attract - The right people with valuable content and conversations
Engage - By presenting insights and solutions that align with their pain
Delight - By providing help and support to empower your customers to find success with their purchases.
