Shot 2: HubSpot Marketing Feature of the Week

Understanding the different HubSpot Marketing versions:


Free - when you are just getting started and want to see who is converting and the path they took.  Remember it only holds 7 days of contact data in the timeline.  Great for adding lead flows.

Starter - when you want to see contact timeline history and remove HubSpot branding

Basic - when you want to add forms, landing pages, blogs and send email campaigns

Pro - when you want to start adding Workflows and A/B testing

Enterprise - when you hit 33,000 contacts and want predictive lead scoring and want to manage multiple domains on the one account.

We also spoke about the redesign of the HubSpot pricing page > https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/pricing-page-redesign-conversion-rate-optimization

Shot 8: Resource of the Week

Getting ready for GPDR compliance in the EU - the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)




The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

Who does the GDPR affect?

The GDPR not only applies to organisations located within the EU but it will also apply to organisations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behaviour of, EU data subjects. It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
