Report on This

Closed Lost Reason Reports

If you’re using the HubSpot sales tools, are you having your sales team report on closed lost reason? Have you ever considered reporting on this?

It’s easy! But does require a small amount of customizing.

The out-of-the-box “Closed Lost Reason” HubSpot deal property is a multi-line text field. This means a rep can right literally write anything they want in there. That makes it really hard to find any trends other than anecdotal or with a lot of manual labor.

If we change that Closed Lost Reason property from a Multi-line Text field to a Dropdown Select field, we can then create reports on the most common Closed Lost Reasons, and make informed decisions based on that.

For example: closed lost reason is predominantly budget.

How can we train our sales team to better address these concerns in the process, or better pre-qualify prospects who don’t have enough budget for us?

What’s on Marcus’ Mind

The language of marketers matters. A lot.

When marketers speak like marketers, they generally fail to get buy-in.

When they speak the language of “sales” and that of a business leader, they influence and lead the organization. When was the last time someone on your marketing team read a straight “sales” book??

This Episode’s Sponsor: Cruise Control by Scripted

Cruise Control is a full-service, data-driven content marketing solution. It shows you which topics and keywords you can realistically rank for and will drive targeted traffic with. It analyzes the search results to find what content ranks today and tells you exactly what type of content you need to have a shot at hitting the first page of Google.

I recently sat down with Scripted’s CEO, Doug Breaker, to talk outsourced writing, SEO and keyword strategy for the content marketer, and a lot more.

HubSpot Wishlist: Grant Users Access to Multiple Teams

“We need the ability to grant users access to multiple teams so when they are creating deals, companies or contacts they can specify which team they are doing this for.

This will allow our support staff to support multiple individuals in a way they can't at the moment and in reality, in many businesses, an individual will often work with more than just their own team. The user permissions settings are far too basic at the moment with just 'individual', 'team' and 'everything' not granular enough.” - andyhampshire

Vote it Up!

I’ve been getting deep into the Enterprise Toolset and this functionality would be amazing for large and complex teams! Thankfully, it’s currently in planning.
