Shot 2: HubSpot Marketing Feature of the Week

HubSpot Ads Add-on Is Updated and Awesome

Facebook Ads

https://blog.hubspot.com/customers/facebook-ads-integration

It’s really good. And a big improvement on the original release - which Craig gave the big thumbs down to back in episode 5: https://hubshots.com/episode-5/

Pros:

  • Main usage is reporting
  • Lead Ads integration (supports Lead Forms)
  • ROI calculation can be based on Deal size ie real dollar numbers, not estimates

Cons:

  • Not good for creating, or managing in detail
  • Some issues with LinkedIn integration if you manage multiple LI ad accounts

Next feature we’d like to see: syncing Saved audiences based on HubSpot lists…

Action item: Start the 14 day trial, connect your accounts and view the stats. If they are helpful to you, consider purchasing.

Shot 3: HubSpot Sales Feature of the Week

Sales Tools > Prospects

Great to see who is visiting your site and if you can identify the company and keep a track

Craig’s wishlist: be able to filter prospects by pages visited

Don’t create obviously fake scarcity:

Kipp Bodnar on building marketing teams for growth:

https://thinkgrowth.org/structure-your-marketing-team-for-growth-86325b0c925c#.cddbadid2

“The goal isn’t to find a perfect org structure. Instead, find a structure that is right for right now, one that reflects what you are currently prioritizing — and deprioritizing — and sets you up to leverage your current growth opportunities.”

Key point: Org structures are fluid and serve a purpose, rather than fitting a text book approach.

Shot 6: Podcast of the Week

The Daily Hub with Samantha Alford:

Interview style, where she interviews key marketers - each day with a new episode!

Shot 7: Resource of the Week

Following on from last week and Ryan Bonnici’s session at Inboud, one of his hacks was around snippets in Google. Here’s a Moz guide to analysing how to get your content ‘snippet optimised’:

https://moz.com/blog/what-we-learned-analyzing-featured-snippets

Key point: you can learn a lot by simply analysing what the current snippets are… sounds obvious, but is totally actionable

Shot 8: Quote of the Week

Give people what they want and they will like you for now. Give people what the need and they will value you forever.
