New speaker announced

https://www.inbound.com/speakers/ta-nehisi-coates

“Coates is one of the most elegant and sharp observers of race in America. He is an upholder of universal values, a brave and compassionate writer who challenges his readers to transcend narrow self-definitions and focus on shared humanity.”

Shot 2: HubSpot Feature/Tip of the Week

Let’s say you wanted to build a smart list based on how contacts first came into contact with you, eg this detail at the start of their timeline:

What is their First Touch?

Original Source contact property is in the Web Analytics properties:

You can use it to build smart lists, and even direct workflows.

Shot 3: Challenge of the Week

Improving User Experience

https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2016/08/helping-users-easily-access-content-on.html 

To improve the mobile search experience, after January 10, 2017, pages where content is not easily accessible to a user on the transition from the mobile search results may not rank as highly.

Shot 4: Opinion of the Week

https://readthink.com/what-does-the-future-of-content-marketing-look-like-spoiler-far-less-content-812ac1512902#.c2y2qbkft

Think of content creation as being like a Product Manager

Having a visual workflow builder would be a big improvement to the product

Shot 5: Pro Tip of the Week

Creating a SMART CTA in HubSpot

Create a series of CTAs and then use Lists to drive people through a series of them eg create smart lists for contacts NOT in a conversion list.

Also use Smart CTAs to only show CTAs to people in a specific location eg Craig only shows offers to people in Australia

  • Generate new qualified leads.

Step 1: Pick one blog post to optimise

PRO TIP: Pick the post that is generating the most traffic to your blog.

Step 2: Determine which buyer persona the post is targeting

PRO TIP: Tailor the language of your blog post to mirror the language of your persona.

Step 3: Identify one primary long-tail keyword

Shot 8: Resource of the Week

Tl;dr: hashtags are getting abused, and basically becoming worthless unless specifically related to an event or popular meme:

Ie if you are a brand and trying to get traction for a hashtag, don’t bother
