Hubcast Raving Fans

Each week in this section we show love to those who show love to us. Simply leave us a review on iTunes and we will read it for the rest of the community to hear. Let us know who you are, your business, or other tidbits of information in your review.

This week’s review comes from Wilbur Meyer.

HubCast Sponsor

We believe getting administrative support shouldn’t be complicated. And they really know HubSpot.

Their team includes marketing specialists that focus on things like:

  • *Scheduling and calendar management
  • Social media management and advertising
  • PPC management
  • Content development
  • Inbound sales support
  • Project management
  • Billing and collections
  • HubSpot setup and maintenance
  • WordPress support and maintenance
  • Graphic design

And more.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have an on-demand team of inbound-certified VAs that you can call on when you need extra help?

Would it be even better if they knew HubSpot and the inbound methodology?

That’s Inbound Back Office.

HubSpot Updates

[Now Live] - New In-App Integration Listings Page

HubSpot updated the in-app integration listings page in HubSpot. This change brings their new visual redesign, an enhanced UI, and a simple way for you to see what you have integrated (what apps have access to your data) and make changes as desired. You can find the in-app integration page in the right hand drop down next to Hub ID in your portal.

Hubcast - HubSpot Integrations

[HubSpot Connect] - Privy Integration

What’s this integration partner do?

Privy is an on-site lead acquisition solution for marketers. The tool makes it easy to create pop-up lead capture forms or offers on your website without touching any code or HTML. With Privy linked to HubSpot, leads flow directly into your Contacts.

HubSpot Wish List

Ability to filter social streams in the social monitoring tool by follower count, amount of engagement with post etc.

For instance, when I look for mentions of Marcus Sheridan or The Sales Lion, be able to see those mentions in order of follower base or tweet engagement

HubSpot Tips & Tricks

This week we jump into the HubSpot email tool and the all important subject lines.
