Importing Companies into the HubSpot CRM - From Chris Heiler...

Marcus and George,

Hey guys. I've got a wishlist item that HS really needs to address. Remember when I suggested they allow users to import contacts without an email address into the HubSpot CRM? Well, now you can do that.

Yeah HubSpot for listening to your customers.

I'd like to see an option for importing companies into the HubSpot CRM. Their dev team will do this for you but you have to have a URL associated with each company. That's too restrictive. So it would be nice if they remove this requirement like they removed the requirement for email address.

We totally agree, not needing to call the dev team and not needing the company URL would make life a lot easier on many HubSPot CRM users.

HubSpot Updates

Introducing Sidekick for Business and Other HubSpot Launches

This week HubSpot, is celebrating their Partners. It's HubSpot’s annual Partner Day event, where their Gold and Platinum Partner Community come together to learn about HubSpot, agencies and all things inbound.

It's also one of the biggest product launch days of our year.

HubSpot has exciting news to share about their new sales tool, Sidekick for Business, as well as Smart Content updates and a ton of new integrations that are now available.

Sidekick for Business

Your sales team plays an important role in driving the growth of your business. But many sales teams are held back by outdated tools that don’t help them sell, and a sales process weighed down by manual work.

That's why HubsSpot is releasing Sidekick for Business, a premium set of sales tools from HubSpot. Sidekick for Business works with HubSpot CRM or Salesforce to help your sales team adopt an efficient, modern sales process. Sidekick for Business lets you:­

  • Build and use templates that will save your team time and let you crowdsource the best approaches from across your sales team
  • Place calls directly from your CRM system that are automatically recorded & logged
  • Build a library of sales content, run live presentations, share documents, and collect valuable data on your content in the process

Sidekick for Business is now available for $50 per user per month.

Smart Content

With Smart Content, you can personalize your website for every type of visitor. This week HubSpot launched new smart content features which stretch that level of personalization even further. These updates are available to any HubSpot Professional or Enterprise customer.

If you're a Basic customer, you can try Professional for free for 30 days. These updates may or may not give you reasons to take HubSpot professional for a spin.

Smart Forms: Smart Forms allow you to display relevant forms that optimize conversions based on any of the Smart Rules you have set up. These forms use progressive profiling and can be used in multiple ways, like displaying shorter forms for visitors from mobile devices rather than desktops or different forms for different countries in each respective language.

Smart HTML Modules: This feature allows you to personalize your entire website by adapting custom HTML modules to each visitor. Websites are driven on HTML, and these Smart HTML Modules allow you the flexibility to, for example, display a live chat window only to prospects and not customers who visit your website, or to display different image sliders based on if the contact is from a specific country.

Smart Anonymous CTAs: The same Smart Rules for CTAs are still available, like Contact List and Lifecycle Stage, but now you can optimize your CTAs even further by doing so for anonymous visitors. For example, you can show different CTAs for folks who visit your website from different sources or from different devices.

Template-Level Smart Content: Implementing personalization across your entire website can take a significant amount of time. With Template-Level Smart Content you can create it once, and roll it out across your entire website. With this new feature, you can make any Rich Text, Custom HTML, or Form modules smart.

Smart Icons: Smart Icons is a feature just for you, so it's easy to see which pages contain Smart Content and which do not. You can find these Smart Icons next to pages with Smart Content in the landing pages or site page dashboards.
