HubSpot Strategy

YouTube as a viable content marketing strategy

With people like Brian Halligan and Marcus Sheridan preaching that 50% of your content should be video, you need to get really good at creating, using and promoting your videos.

How can you make your videos better?

Better YouTube Video Marketing in 5 Steps

  • Eight Second Rule
  • Subject First
  • Treat Your Audience Like They’ve Always Been Loyal
  • The Camera is a Person
  • Always Factor Time for the Close

4 Things You Might Not Know About Your Embed

One of the things you hear marketers say, and I have said it myself is:

You Are giving people 6 to 9 ways for people to leave your site.

Well did you know?

  • You can turn off suggested videos.
  • Turn off or keep player controls on.
  • Show or hide the video title and player actions.
  • And even enable a privacy enhanced mode.

Hubcast Updates

Facebook Ads - HubSpot integration, now live in HubSpot Ads

HubSpot is excited to introduce a powerful integration between Facebook Ads and HubSpot. This integration is live for all customers with the Ads Add-On.

With Facebook Ads data flowing into HubSpot you'll get automatic ROI reporting, conversion tracking and the import of leads generated from Facebook Lead Ads.

Customers who have purchased the $100 Add-On, will see Facebook Ads as a new option in the setting of HubSpot Ads (in the Reports drop down). Once a user has authorized the connection HubSpot will begin to automatically report on ad conversions and track the ROI of their Facebook Ads.

Click here to view the settings or HubSpot Ads and activate the Facebook integration

A Small Change to the "Number of Conversions" Property

Number of Conversions is one of many contact properties created and calculated by HubSpot — along with Number of Pageviews, Emails Clicked, and more — to make it easier to analyze your marketing results. You can use it to create lists of contacts, to trigger automation, to inform your lead scoring criteria, or to generate smart content on your website.

Number of Conversions represents the number of forms a contact has submitted over time. With that in mind, today, HubSpot is making a small change to the property’s label. Moving forward, it will be called "Number of Form Submissions." In addition to more clearly matching its definition, this update brings the property’s label in line with another default HubSpot property, Number of Unique Forms Submitted.

Note that the change is purely aesthetic. None of your existing assets will be impacted by it, values of the property won’t be altered, and your use of the property can remain the same moving forward. It’s simply a small semantic change for the sake of clarity and consistency.
