Hubcast 49: Video Marketing Buy-In, HubSpot CRM Live, & Customizable Dashboards

Hubcast 49: Video Marketing Buy-In, HubSpot CRM Live, & Customizable Dashboards Blog Feature

July 2nd, 2015 min read

Welcome back to The Hubcast  folks; a weekly podcast all about HubSpot news, tips, and tricks. Please also note the extensive show notes below, including some new HubSpot video tutorials created by George Thomas.

Show Notes:

HubSpot Strategy

This week we talk about the many ways you can get buy-in for video marketing. Specifically how you can get fellow employees in front of the camera with ease.

HubSpot Wishlist

A Customizable HubSpot Dashboard

"Visits, contacts, and customers are important, but some businesses also care about live demo requests, webinar registrants, consultations, etc.

Yes, these are easily accessible once you create a smart list (and set the time frame), but then you have to go to a bunch of different smart lists, sources, landing pages, and other places to really collect all of your important numbers.

Wouldn't it be easier if you could create the smart list (if needed), then add that to your dashboard to collect results from the current month? You'd be able to log in and see all of your main metrics in one spot for easy recording.

This would be a true time saver and personal touch to each account, especially for some clients who want to see results but can't quite navigate through HubSpot yet."

HubSpot Updates

Sunsetting Default Setting from Properties Screen

The Contact Properties screen includes much-needed functionality to sort properties, search for them, show you an author name, and some updates to the actual property creation and editing. As part of this release, HubSpot conducted many user tests with customers that showed HubSpot there is a feature that has been misunderstood and often leads to mistakes. That is the capability to set a property value as a default, which would set that option for any contacts who don’t have any values known for the property.

As a result of this confusion and additional complexity it brings, HubSpot is removing the option to set a default property from the interface.

If you have a use case that requires you to stamp all contacts who don’t have a value for a specific property, please feel free to use HubSpot's Workflows App.

For more information on how to do this, please read this help article.

Partner Menu Moving to its Own Navigation Bar

After several weeks of beta testing, the partner menu on the main navigation will move this week to become its own navigation bar. The shift represents the broader way in which you, as a HubSpot partner, are using the platform. Not only are there more partner tools within HubSpot, necessitating more navigational real estate, many partners are also heavy users of the sales tools and all need a quick way to jump between systems. As a result, the partner menu pictured below will now be its own navigation bar and found by clicking on the upper left sprocket dropdown.
