Property of the Week

Recent Deal Close Date

“The date that the last deal associated with a contact was won. This is automatically set by HubSpot based on information from the Deals object.”

Let’s make some customer delight moves, people!

What’s on Marcus’ Mind

All too often, we see companies recycling their employees as videographers - meaning they add "video" as an additional responsibility for a content marketer.

While we understand why this sometimes has to be done, there's some major issues with this mindset.

Listen to the episode to hear more about what's on Marcus' mind on this.

HubSpot Wishlist: Can’t start a sequence from Gmail when replying to a contact (only when composing new email)

The title says it all - this is a limitation that puts the Sequences tool in a box.

Without this functionality, sequences are essentially limited to cold outreach emails instead of giving salespeople the opportunity to automate other kinds of follow up.

Additionally, you can now select a default value for a form field within a lead flow, or edit the labels within a drop down select form field, just like you can within forms.”
