HubSpot Updates/News

[Now Live] HubSpot - Google AdWords Integration

As of earlier this week, HubSpot's Google AdWords integration is live and available to all customers via the Ads Add-on.

Connect your AdWords account to HubSpot today through a free trial of the Ads Add-on.

The Ads Add-On connects directly to your AdWords account through OAuth, allowing HubSpot to edit AdWords campaigns and pull in ads data to combine with HubSpot data. This magical combination of data gives you the ability to automatically track ad conversions. It also shows you the ROI of ads down to the keyword, as well as which ad clicks turn into customers.

Who gets it:

Customers who have purchased the $100 Add-On, or are in a free 14-day trial, will see Ads as a new option in the Reporting drop down.

AdWords_Accourdion_1

It takes time and effort to get good at ads and even then you have to spend a lot time measuring and analyzing results to get the most from them. The Ads Add-On makes ads easy by helping you avoid common mistakes and presenting only the data you need to make better decisions. With the tool, you can use this data to start doing more of what works, and less of what doesn’t, allowing you to drive better results at a lower cost.

Click here to start your free trial today.

Webinar information for Google Ads/ HubSpot Add-on - For HubSpot partners

To mark the release of the new Google Adwords add-on for HubSpot, HubSpot is holding a special webinar for all HubSpot Partners to help you get up to speed on this exciting new integration!

Join HubSpot for a deep dive into how to use, sell and service with the Google Adwords add-on for HubSpot. In this hour long webinar, you’ll also learn how to incorporate ads into your existing inbound retainers and what campaigns and clients are a good fit for paid ads.

HubSpot Question of the Week

Hey Marcus & George,

We have this annoying competitor who has popped up out of nowhere and stolen the #1 spot for each major city we operate in, including our hometown!

I need some SEO help. Do you have any recommendations?

  • Specificity of the city & state
  • Test the word number count - use of Portland Oregon on page
  • Leverage the power of sub-heads with keyword phrase
