Hubcast 180: Reporting, Video Culture, & Contacts Without Email Addresses

Hubcast 180: Reporting, Video Culture, & Contacts Without Email Addresses Blog Feature

Carina Duffy

HubSpot Trainer, Co-Host of the Hubcast, IMPACT+ Instructor, INBOUND Speaker, Retains 12 HubSpot Certifications

June 14th, 2018 min read

This episode of the Hubcast is brought to you by our HubSpot Intensive Training (HIT) Workshops.

Need a little HubSpot Therapy?

We’ve got you covered.

A few INBOUND breakouts we think will be interesting:

  1. Mari Smith - Facebook Video Marketing: How to Optimize Results Using VOD and Live Broadcasts 

Note: Mari teamed up with IMPACT to present an AWESOME webinar on this earlier this week. You can get the recording here.

  1. Andrew Tarvin (Humor that Works) - Funny to Money: The Science of Selling with Humor

Property of the Week:

Days to Close

“The days that elapsed from when a contact was created until they closed as a customer. This is set automatically by HubSpot and can be used for segmentation and reporting.”

Why is this property useful? Reporting, reporting, reporting!

Actually, let’s talk about reporting.

You know what’s weird?

A lot of people purchase HubSpot because of its reporting capabilities, but many of them never get to a place where they’re actually able to report on the important stuff.

What’s On Marcus’ Mind

If publishers like the Washington Post are finally catching on to video, don’t ya think it’s time your business starts thinking the same way???

Read the Think With Google Article on the Washington Post's Pivot to Video

Micah Gelman, Director of Video:

“It might seem surprising, but video is still a novel thing for many publishers. That’s especially true for legacy publishers that come from a long, rich tradition of print, like the Washington Post.

But last year, we realized we needed to do more in such a critical part of our storytelling. 

Our audience wants to experience and engage with stories, and we have a lot of stories where the best way of doing that is through video.”

(Go where your audience is):

“The audiences are definitely different across all the platforms.

For example, we see YouTube as a great place to reach a younger audience that might not come directly to our homepage.

To put some numbers on that point: Over half of our watch time on YouTube comes from 18 to 34-year-olds, but less than 20% of our watch time on washingtonpost.com does.”

We’re also seeing the same from major magazine publishers like Good Housekeeping, Elle, etc:

Read About Hearst UK's New Video Strategy

Hearst UK has a video editor for Good Housekeeping and Cosmopolitan, and since last year, it has hired an additional three video editors for a centralized video team.

Investing more time and energy in creating original video led to a refocus on distributing on Hearst’s own platforms.

This Episode’s Sponsor: HIT Workshops

Many organizations who make an initial investment in HubSpot think that it’s going to do the work for them, and that’s just not true.

In our HIT Workshops, we not only walk you through how to use individual tools but coach you through how to apply them to your real life business needs and goals.
