Hubcast 168: Inbound Sales, Inexplicably Strange Things, and HubSpot WooCommerce Update

By George B Thomas

Hubcast 168: Inbound Sales, Inexplicably Strange Things, and HubSpot WooCommerce Update

This week on the Hubcast, we dive into 47 strange things we all do as humans, the new HubSpot Woocommerce update, and a super hack from our friend, Jeppe.



Property of The Week

Currently in Sequence

Property of the week

Currently in Sequence (Sales Professional Only) indicates whether or not a contact has been enrolled in a sequence. This is set automatically to "true" when a contact is currently enrolled in a sequence.

HubSpot Wish List

Add Lead Flow Submissions to 'Campaign' feature

Submitted by: Liam Bates

Lead Flows are one of the best features HubSpot has ever created, and one of our clients receives a ton of their leads through exit-intent pop-ups and slide-in banners.

Unfortunately, they are not tracked yet in the HubSpot campaign feature, making it not fully comprehensive of a whole campaign strategy.

This would be a great addition and better represent the successes and failures of a campaign we run.

[Now Live] Set Automatic Email Reminder for Meetings


We’ve all been stood up for meetings before. Not only is it a bummer, but it also means you’re missing out on a chance to close a deal.

As a sales rep, you want to be able to remind your prospects of an upcoming meeting in order to increase your chance of closing a deal.

But time is money, right? So, manually reaching out to prospects isn’t the most productive way to spend your day.

Now, you can set up your meeting's link to automatically send reminder emails to prospects 72 hours and 1 hour before your meeting, which will decrease no-shows and increase your productivity.

[Now Live] Update Points of Contact Right in the HubSpot App


Found in the Company & Contacts section of the Account & Billing dashboard, customers and partners can now manage points of contact right in their HubSpot portal.

As a partner, various members of your team should be assigned as the primary contact or onboarding contact for a specific client. In addition, someone from the client should be listed as the decision maker or billing contact.

Please be sure to keep this up to date for your HubSpot clients to ensure that notifications go to the appropriate person.

HubSpot Hack Awards

Jeppe Houman Nyrup

One of our amazing friends and Hubcast listeners from Denmark sent in this hack. 

Hi George

The other day I was on the phone with a client that needed to create a list of contacts attached to a Parent company in the CRM.

Apparently HubSpot has chosen to make the life hard on people who want to do that (or it is currently a bug) cause the company property ‘Parent Company’ is a number, which makes it pretty hard to enter a name of that parent company:


But I found out that if you go into your company database in HubSpot and find that Parent company you can find this number in the URL:


If you copy/paste this ID number into the parent company property on your list – Badabing & Boomshakalaka – you have a list of contacts associated with a company that has this parent company attached 


That was my best hack of the month. It can be used in other ways as well, but that ID is very good to know for both Companies, Contacts, Deals, etc.

Until Next Time
