Analyzing, Accepting & Acting on your data
You have to have clean data.
You have to accept your data.
You have to test your data.
But to do any of that, you have to create a habit of looking at and using the data.
Ask yourself, how long do you spend creating reports and then using the data in them to make smart choices moving forward.

Edit Your Automated Blog & RSS Emails within HubSpot
Automated emails that are sent from your blog, or RSS feed, are a reflection of your brand. Now you can put your best foot forward and edit these emails directly within HubSpot.
Starting today you can now edit and format any automated blog, and RSS emails being sent through HubSpot just like you do with any other email.
To start, go into Email,select RSS emails, and then just choose which one to edit.
Next you can:
- Automate Blog & RSS Email Appearance. Change colors of tokens, add or remove tokens and customize the length and appearance of the email to match your brand.
- Choose the Number of Posts to Display. Easily change the number of posts that are displayed and how images show up for each of the posts.

HubSpot Wish List
Zach Holloway - Bulk Uploading for Facebook
The bulk upload feature for social publishing is a GREAT one that saves A LOT of time, but I wish it was available for other social media channels, at least Facebook.
Not all businesses/companies have leads or customers that are primarily on Twitter, meaning their social strategy could involve more Facebook posts than tweets. It's a bummer to have a great list of Facebook posts for sharing and then have to manually enter those messages.
