HubSpot Strategy

Lead Nurturing Is A Must

Are you doing lead nurturing with all of your Inbound Campaigns?

Check out this article.

You need to have goals for each email you send.

Setting goals and writing emails

Smart marketers always remember to set goals for each of their emails. Use the
following examples as a guideline for your lead nurturing campaign.

Build Trust (Great for first email after a download)

Build trust and relevancy of content with the lead to increase the chance of future
emails being opened.

Add Value (Blogs, videos, podcasts – ungated content)

Present yourself as a thought leader. Serve up additional free content that is relevant
to their challenges and buyer’s journey phase.

Next Phase Offer (Premium offer – gated content)

Provide an offer that moves the lead into the next phase of their buyer’s journey.
Remember to always deliver the offer that will move them in the right direction
towards making a purchase decision.

Collect Information (Survey, Poll)

Gather needed information for better personalization or future content creation
for that personas challenges and goals.

Breakup (Send email if lead did not reach email goal)

Breakup email: Make it clear this is the last email that they will be receiving about
this topic. Get the lead to subscribe to the blog or provide a resource recap to help
them stay engaged.

  • Create a story with your lead nurturing campaign that is actionable and lovable.
  • Write your emails in the second person. Write about them, not about you.

HubSpot Wish List

Templates for Notes in CRM

Submitted by wilkins

We have standard criteria for sales calls that we want to capture and filling out a template within a note would be very convenient. Adding a bunch of custom fields to a deal doesn't really do the trick either because it requires a lot of scrolling to view all info in the left-hand banner and those fields are not formattable.

We have access to pinning of notes through the beta (very valuable) and I'd love to pin this template to the top of every deal.

ndwilliams3 Also said…

Totally agree this would be a great feature. Our sales team also has specific questions they try to get answered during a call. Some of this data would be great to have as contact properties as well. However, adding all this to the about section would be too much. Having the ability to load a form template within the notes section would be great. When saving, it would update the corresponding contact properties, but also save the data in the note activity on the timeline (similar to how form submissions look).
