[Funnel Health Over Time] MQLs Over Time by Current Lifecycle Stage
I was recently working with a client who wanted to look at their current contact funnel health compared to previous periods (either week over week or month over month).
While you can select “Funnel report” when creating a custom report, which will show you your contact’s conversion rate from one lifecycle stage to another over a period of time, there’s no way to get a comparison view without creating a SECOND report and just showing a different time period.
If we create a regular ole single object report - we can create a report that shows us how many contacts were created in a certain lifecycle stage (let’s take MQL as an example) and where those contacts are now.
Filters: create date is All Time; Became a Marketing Qualified Lead Date is Last 365 days (or whatever time period you want to see)
Selected Properties: Became a Marketing Qualified Lead Date, Lifecycle Stage, Count of Contacts
***You’ll probably want to go to display options and check Stacked to make everything easier to see!***

Cruise Control shows you what topics you can realistically rank in Google for, how many people search for that topic, and exactly what type of content you need to publish in order to rank for that topic.

HubSpot Wishlist: Disable Tracking for Emails Sent Within CRM
This one’s a Duffy original! Added to HubSpot Ideas because of a client issue that came up recently.
I have a client who was running into issues with deliverability of their one-to-one emails in HubSpot, and wanted to turn off open and click tracking for emails they send from the CRM.
If you’re familiar with the Gmail and Outlook extensions, you know that you have the option to turn off both logging and/or tracking for any given email. NOT SO for emails sent within the CRM!
It makes sense that you have to log it, for goodness sake you’re sending it inside of the CRM, but it doesn’t make sense to not be able to turn of the open and click tracking like you can in the extensions!
We’ve actually already talked about this in a previous episode, but it’s worth going through piece by piece! (if you’re on Pro or Enterprise, you may have already seen these, if not, these are now live in your portal!)
