Hubcast 15: How to Effectively Design Product & Services Pages for Your Website

By George B Thomas

Hubcast 15: How to Effectively Design Product & Services Pages for Your Website Blog Feature

Welcome back to The Hubcast folks! As mentioned last week, this will be 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.

Show Notes:

Remarkable Growth Experience Happening This Week

We start out by talking about the RGE event that we will be at in two days. We look forward to seeing many of our listeners for this two-day event.

HubSpot Strategy

During this weeks strategy section we talk about the importance of quality products and services pages. We cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time covering items like:

  • People are talking about the "THING"
  • How these pages are not focused on the "PROBLEM"
  • No one is answering the needed "QUESTIONS"
  • These pages are very important to the "BOTTOM LINE"

HubSpot Tips & Tricks

How to add a robots.txt file to you blog If you are going to be using video on your blog articles one of the things you should be doing is using Wistia and creating a video SEO sitemap. However to do this you need to be able to set a little piece of code in your robots.txt file. Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 12.35.53 AM It is very easy to set this on your main domain but not as easily understandable when you are trying to add it to your HubSpot blog. Also a little pro tip.. Setup video SEO sitemaps for your main domain, your blogs, your subdomains… in other words always make sure you are adding the power punch of the mighty sitemap to your marketing efforts. Oh and you will need these robots.txt files for other advanced things as well. What’s Next?

HubSpot Wishlist

Allow a Wordpress post to connect with the HubSpot Campaigns Tool via the HubSpot Plugin Right now, the only way to track a post as part of an "inbound campaign" in the Campaign Tool, is to use the COS. But what about those of B2B or B2C companies who use Wordpress? Please HubSpot, update the WP plugin to allow us to track posts as part of the campaign in the campaign tool. The HubSpot tool has grown, so the plugin should as well.

HubSpot Updates

CRM Contact, Company & Deal Slideout Consider that 4 seconds it takes to find, click, and load a contact record in your CRM. (Or 10 seconds, depending on the tool you use.) It doesn't sound like much, but when it's something you do 50 or 60 times a day, it adds up to real time diverted from more valuable tasks. The new slideout allows you to view information easier. Now with a simple click on a record in any contact, company, or deal table view, a slideout opens displaying most of the important details. Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 12.45.51 AM How does it work? From the slideout, you can review important details about a contact, company, or deal, drill down to the full record, and even edit property data. Now you don't have to wait for anything to load or lose your place on the screen while working. Watch the tutorial HubSpot CRM Templates & Reports “I wonder how many times I’ve written this exact email...” Along with many sales professionals, this may be a question that you ask yourself over and over again. The trouble is that building, maintaining, and actually using templates is so much of a hassle - that it doesn’t even end up saving you any time. HubSpot CRM Templates are different. HubSpot CRM Templates live right in your GMail inbox through Sidekick, so you can send templated messages from the email tool you already use every day. Through a connection to Salesforce or HubSpot CRM, HubSpot Templates are instantly personalized for each and every prospect. Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 12.47.30 AM How does it work? To get started with adding templates to your CRM system, go to Settings > Templates. Once you’ve set some templates up, you can send messages using your templates from any contact record, or from Sidekick in GMail. Watch the tutorial
