HubSpot Property of The Week

Total Revenue

Property of the week

Total revenue is the total dollar amount of all associated deals that have been closed.

To make the most out of this property, you have to ask yourself:

  • Are we focused on lifecycle stages in our funnel
  • Do our deal stages represent our funnel and the inbound sales process
  • Are we using a CRM or just the marketing software

HubSpot Wish List

This week's wishlist is a little different. Usually every week I share a part of the software I wish was updated to be amazingly awesome.

Well, this week, my wishlist item is more education-based.

You see, HubSpot added a new micro-functionality that really begs for some education around it, specifically from HubSpot Academy.

The new functionality is the ability to do what seems like almost A/Z call-to-action (CTA) variants. Items I would love to see covered in the resource:

  • Why so many variants
  • What should we be testing
  • How are they rotated
  • And so much more…

What questions do you have about the new multivariate CTA test functionality? Let us know in the comments of the show notes or hit us up on Twitter.
