Hubcast 119: HubSpot Training, Vidyard Integration, & No Inbound Budget

By George B Thomas

Hubcast 119: HubSpot Training, Vidyard Integration, & No Inbound Budget

Welcome back to The Hubcast, folks: A weekly podcast all about HubSpot news, tips, and tricks. Please also note the extensive show notes below, including some new HubSpot video tutorials created by George Thomas.

This episode of the Hubcast has been brought to you by our awesome sponsor AHREFS &


I was listening to some of the Hubcasts while driving back from Disneyland with the family on Monday after a fantastic, but long 3 days at the park.  My wife was in the passenger seat with her Bose noise canceling headphones on so she could try and sleep.  I have to say, I burst out laughing when she woke up from her dream state and said 'he's so FRICKING loud!'.  

She was commenting on the voice transition from George to you [Marcus].  George tends to be a little softer in tone making the transition to you somewhat spectacular on occasion.  I just thought you would get a kick out of this unconventional feedback!  Maybe use it as a new tagline??

PS:  She would never make a comment like that if she was fully aware and awake!  That's why it was so funny!


HubSpot Strategy

Educating your Team in 2017 - HubSpot Training

In 2017, I hope you realize the separating factor of your company being successful or not is directly related to the time you put towards your, and your team’s, education.

As you have heard on the podcast, getting all the appropriate certifications from HubSpot is an excellent first step. Listening to HubSpot specific podcasts is a great second.

But what is one to do after that?

In 2017 I will be traveling all over the world giving HubSpot Intensive Trainings. However, there are a limited amount of training sessions that I will be doing.

I only have 20 training slots for the entire 2017 schedule.

That being said, because you are a Hubcast listener, you are getting first pick at these 20 spots, including a hefty discount.

Why a discount?

  1. Because we know you already “get” it. You are a Hubcast listener. That says a lot about you and your drive to be great with the tool. It also means your team is already at least partially “bought in.”
  2. With everything else we have going on at The Sales Lion, it’s critical from a scheduling standpoint that I’m able to plan these trainings out now instead of “as they come.”
  3. Along with #2, I will only be doing two workshops a month, every month, next year except for June, July, August, and December (where I’ll be doing just one those months)-- which adds up to 20-- and makes for a dramatically more balanced work/life schedule.

So What Do You Get with a HIT?

During your personalized HubSpot Intensive Training this is exactly what will happen:

We will look at your website, user experience, inbound strategy, content strategy, video strategy, and so much more. Then, we merge it into one great action-oriented plan for you to follow in 2017 and beyond.

For more information on the specifics of our HubSpot Intensive Trainings and to see what others think about them, just visit our HIT page. Or, just email me at

What about that discount?

Usually when we do HIT workshops, it is $7,500 for one day and $12,000 for a two day workshop plus travel.

But because you are a Hubcast listener, I want to extend you a limited time offer of $5,500 for a one-day workshop, or $8,500 for a two-day workshop (plus travel) in an effort to make 2017 your best year ever with HubSpot and Inbound Marketing.

So, if you are ready to start being world-class at inbound, content, sales, and marketing, just hit the reply to this email and start the conversation, or fill out the form on our HIT Workshop page.

And by the way, if you’re not sure if it’s a good fit, all you need to do is ask. I’ll be honest and frank with you, as there have been many times in the past where I’ve recommended to a customer something different than a HIT workshop.

So until I see you at your location, here’s to all of us staying focused, getting educated, and being an inspiration to those around us.
