Free Guide: The Inbound Marketer’s Guide to Maximizing HubSpot ROI
The Inbound Sales Certification is made up of five classes that you can watch on demand and at your own pace. To help you master the Inbound Sales topic, each class includes worksheets and additional resources that dig further into the topic and practice what you’ve learned.
In order to get the most out of this HubSpot sales certification, HubSpot recommends that you download the study guide and watch all the classes in order.
Seriously, do not skip around.
After watching the classes, go earn your official Inbound Sales Certification badge and certificate. Your new certification will be valid for 13 months from the month you passed the test.
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.
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.
