What’s New at IMPACT, Video Marketing, and GDPR tools in HubSpot (The IMPACT Show Ep. 51)

Just in case you missed us live (or if you want to relive the magic), you’ll find the episode’s show notes below as well as the recording.

IMPACT Updates

Enabling Your Team - Creating Great Managers and Leaders

Bob shares how, through mergers, acquisitions and company growth, we've gone from 30 people to 50+. A lot of Bob's time has been focused on creating the optimal employee experience, client service experience, and being a profitable and successful business. Bob has spent time looking at different business models and has spent time with the team to create the right model that will work for us. 

Bob went on to share the vital importance of having good managers. Organizations often mistake people who are great at their tactical role for great managers. However, if you don't have someone who is (or can be trained to be) a great manager who takes care of their team, drives performance and creates a productive working environment. 

Finally, Bob shared how Chris Duprey has been making sure IMPACT has all the right leadership training and management tools to manage and lead in the IMPACT way. There will be weekly leadership trainings and we'll make sure we have a system to build great managers and great leaders. 

Introducing IMPACT Client Success Managers

Bob shared how our sales people have typically taken on inbound leads and converted them into customers - and then moved onto the next sale. While they were great at getting new business, it wasn't necessarily the best client experience. Things can fall through the cracks when there is a handoff. Plus, clients build relationships with salespeople and those are lost when there is a handoff. 

Also, our client teams are so focused on doing everything well and on time for our clients. They have so much to get done and that is their key focus. Meanwhile, new tools are coming out, HubSpot is making updates, and our delivery team isn't able to suggest and share all these new possibilities. 

Our solution is we're transforming our salespeople into client success managers and they will be with the clients throughout their time with IMPACT.

What's Crackin' in Elite

Elite Member: Caitlin Sellers-Castevens posted in Elite: Hello, Elite! I'm working on KPI's for my Inbound team and am interested what your expectations are for your inbound employees? We have an inbound coordinator, inbound specialist, inbound manager, and inbound strategist. Help :)

Bob shared his thoughts on KPIs. He shared his top 3 which are: 

1. getting work done at a high quality level

2. ultimate performance - what goals did we set and did we hit them?

3. any management objectives and creating a great work environment

Elite Member, Ellen Welker, asked about how to create a countdown on a landing page in HubSpot and Richard Tubman also asked about online quizzes that might integrate with HubSpot. This is exactly the type of thing Elite is great for - we love these kinds of questions and I'll make sure you get an answer!

Inbound in the Trenches

This is where we talk about what we’re doing and what we’ve learned lately right here in the trenches. 

Bob shares how we've been trying to be more conversational and human in our marketing. One of the ways we've done this is to create some more plain text, less stylized emails that are authentic and provide value. We have also been using video! 

You may have seen this in one of my recent update emails - expect more like this! 

It's GDPR Day - May 25th, 2018 Has Arrived 

Carina Duffy shared the perfect GDPR sentiment in Elite and we'll continue the discussion there.   

We would love your comments. What did you think of the show? Let us know in Elite. Make sure you never miss a show or update by subscribing at impactplus.com/show

We’ll be back in two weeks for the IMPACT Show live on Friday, June 8th at 11:00AM ET.

Until next time...get out there and make it happen!
