Shot 1: Inbound Thought of the Week

The Search Opportunity

https://moz.com/blog/state-of-searcher-behavior-revealed

#21: What percent of Google queries lead to more than one click on the results?

Some of us use ctrl+click to open up multiple tabs when searching. Others click one result, then click back and click another. Taken together, all the search behaviors that result in more than one click following a single search query in a session combine for 21%. That's 21% of searches that lead to more than one click on Google's results.

Shot 2: HubSpot Marketing Feature of the Week

HubSpot Dependent Form Fields

https://knowledge.hubspot.com/articles/kcs_article/forms/is-it-possible-to-make-a-form-field-dynamically-appear-as-a-result-of-an-answer-to-another-question

A little gotcha: it won’t show the optional fields if you refresh the page - you’ll need to untick/tick a field again to show it for example.

Shot 3: Marketing Tip of the Week

Using competitor page data to inform your own optimisation:

https://moz.com/blog/use-competitor-top-pages-data-bolster-seo-efforts-whiteboard-friday

Example: Use BuzzSumo to find content that is working well on your competitor’s sites. Analyse to see if they are answering questions which you could be answering better.

Shot 4: HubSpot Sales Feature of the Week

Documents in HubSpot Sales

Why we love this is because

  1. It is a central location of helpful document/sales content that your entire team can use and share documents right from your Gmail or Outlook inbox, and see which content closes deals.
  2. Know the second a prospect/user opens a document.
  3. Identify the documents that close deals and get used consistently.

Shot 5: Opinions of the Week

Opinion 1: Forcing people to install apps to talk to you is dumb

Don’t force people (prospects, staff, customers) to install new tools just to communicate with them.

Remove friction in your communications

Eg being forced to install Skype, zoom.us, GoToMeeting, etc

Also, be considerate when giving  a contact a calendar link in an email to book time with you

Opinion 2: Making generalisations based on your own bad performance is dumb

Learn to ignore some posts - here’s a good example of what Craig thinks is bad advice:

Bonus gripe: HubSpot closed comments on the post, even though it was only posted on 21 March.
