Hubcast 135: Impact Live, HubSpot Updates, & INBOUND Studio

Welcome to The Hubcast, your source for all things Inbound Marketing and HubSpot.


Born out of the INBOUND 2016 event, The INBOUND Studio began as an experiment where keynote speakers followed up their main stage talks with more intimate conversations on Facebook Live. Now we're growing the Studio into a year-long video series on Facebook and YouTube.

INBOUND Studio brings together diverse viewpoints around specific topics that speak to what it means to be human. For each topic, we’ll bring a mix of the usual suspects as well as new voices in the space to inspire you and share never-before-heard insights.

The first series of The INBOUND Studio dissects "The Power of Humor," featuring conversations with Trevor Noah, Tig Notaro, Andy Borowitz, Steve Cody, and Lakshmi Balachandra. Follow The INBOUND Studio Facebook page.

Introducing CRM Extensions

HubSPot CRM Extensions

HubSpot is excited to introduce a new API, specific to their HubSpot CRM, called CRM Extensions. This API lets developers build integrations that bring their data and functionality inside the HubSpot CRM. The API is now live, and two HubSpot Connect integration partners, PandaDoc and Seventh Sense, have already built CRM integrations on the new API.

Curious about the API? You can read more about what it does here.

HubSpot Wish List

Deal breakdown into multiple Products #Pricebook 

Submitted by brents2cents

Hi, I'm a Director of Business Development with a multi-media company and have used HubSpot across a couple different business industries now. As a paying customer, it would be incredibly useful in Sales to have a product list in HubSpot that associates with Deals. In the current set up, I cannot track where specifically our revenues are coming from. How often is a "Deal" just ONE product, service, or offering? Almost never. 

Example 1: When I was in IT sales, a single deal/sale would have at least a dozen line items. Salesforce, unfortunately, took the cake with this because we could create custom fields. 

Example 2: Now in media, a single Deal easily contains a few advertisements, events passes, and special program materials. There is no way to track which products we are selling in a B2B or even B2C sale. Plus only knowing the grand total is vaguely useful.

Lastly, take a look at PandaDoc, they have a great "click and drag" feature for multiple stored line items when creating proposals and contracts.

Would love to see something like this happen ASAP. I know it's been mentioned before, but that is the only thing holding us back from making a full transition to HubSpot and the biggest pain point for our company. 

Thanks! HubSpot is by far my favorite CRM and sales tool, I would be so relieved and happy to see this feature come to life. :) Sales Reporting Productivity Tools
