HubSpot Strategy

Speaking as a lead generating opportunity.

When people talk about speaking, they think about events. It is true that speaking at events can generate leads, but you need to have a process. This week we talk about our process, the different meanings of “speaking,” and much more.

Will speak for leads:

  • Events
  • Podcasts
  • Videos
  • Webinars

HubSpot Updates

Target Your Subject Lines for Different Audiences

Your subject line is arguably the most critical part of your email marketing strategy. If it doesn't pique your audience's interest, a carefully crafted email loses all impact. That's why we're happy to introduce Smart Subject Lines for Professional and Enterprise customers, the latest addition to the smart content experience which allows you to target your subject lines to contacts by different lists or lifecycle stages.

How does it work?

1. In the email editor you'll see a Smart Content icon next to the Subject Line. Next, choose whether to segment by list membership or lifecycle stage.

2. Edit Smart Rules based on the criteria you select, and add any personalization tokens.

2. Heads up...a new Email Dashboard is coming!

Big news... we've redesigned the email dashboard to better help you view and understand the aggregate performance of your email marketing efforts. The new dashboard offers more robust performance graphs to track the success of emails over time, and provides actionable tips to help boost your email metrics.

All HubSpot customers can expect to see the updated dashboard appear over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for the upcoming change. In the meantime, here's what to expect:

What's new specifically?

You'll now see two tabs in the updated dashboard: Manage and Analyze. The 'Manage' tab lists your sent, scheduled, archived, and drafted emails, and the 'Analyze' tab is the new home base for email reporting. Within the 'Analyze' tab, you'll get deeper dive into your email performance metrics and delivery rates.

HubSpot Wish List

Allow users to associate an alt tag with an image in File Manager

At the moment, every time you use an image you have to edit the alt tag (which defaults to the image filename). Can we have an alt tag field in File Manager so you can specify an alt tag for each image, which will then be used every time you use the image?
