Agency: Bigshot Inbound

Founder: Jeff Henry


Twitter: @bigshotinbound

Reasons: Platinum HubSpot Partner...

  • I dig their Get Inbound button at the top right. The soft movement caught my eye.
  • Their creativity with the use of dogs throughout the site is fun.
  • I like how their home page is broken into sections specifically on attract, convert, close, and delight. You can also dive deeper into each of those sections on additional pages.
  • They have an Our Guarantee page describing what clients can expect from them if goals aren't being made.
  • They show results on their Portfolio page, a great resource section, and there is just a bunch of cool things going on there.

HubSpot Wish List

Kevin Phillips

Be able to add captions to photos in HubSpot's photo editor.

Kevin says, "one of our clients wanted to credit a photo in an article and asked how to add a caption in HubSpot's photo editor. Unfortunately, HubSpot doesn't have this feature (although you can add stickers of mustaches and cigars to pictures, which we can all agree is much more important than citing a source). I went to see if this was already a wish list item and found a forum dated back to 2011 saying that this feature was in development. There were even comments as recent as a few weeks ago asking if it will ever be in development! Not everybody has Photoshop or knows how to edit pictures, so if you'd like to be able to add a simple caption to your photo, please Up-vote this. Thanks Hubcast community."
