HubSpot Updates

It is time for our 5 golden rings section of the Christmas Hubcast episode. 5 updates to bring you joy and put you in the HubSpotting spirit.

First, there have been a couple integration updates lately that we have not covered, so let's talk about those at a very high level.

Retarget HubSpot lists with ads through Perfect Audience Integration

 

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 2.14.59 PM98% of visitors to your website leave without converting. Facebook and web retargeting brings them back to give you a second chance. Perfect Audience allows you to bring mobile, web, and Facebook retargeting together in one dashboard. Making it easier to convert interested but undecided prospects.

What does the Perfect Audience - HubSpot integration allow you to do?

You can now easily retarget lists that you create inside HubSpot to compliment your ongoing inbound activities. By connecting your accounts, Perfect Audience seamlessly and silently works in the background building retargeting audiences from your HubSpot audience lists, allowing you to re-engage with your customers and prospects.

Bring events into HubSpot with Eventbrite integration

 

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 2.16.01 PMEventbrite, is a free website that makes throwing a successful real-life event simple. Their site allows you to set-up a new event in minutes, promote it to your followers, and manage every detail.

How does Eventbrite integrate with HubSpot?

When connected, new registrants for your events will automatically be created as contacts in HubSpot. It also allows you to see how existing contacts have engaged with you before an event and if they became a MQL or customer afterwards. The integration makes follow-up a breeze though the ability to segment and build lists based on event registration.

HubSpot Connect - SlideShare Integration

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 2.16.52 PM

SlideShare (by LinkedIn) is the place to host and discover visual content (mainly slide presentations). With a very professionally skewed audience and over 70 Million unique monthly visitors, SlideShare is an often undervalued, unique way for B2B marketers to reach their audience with content.

SlideShare now has a paid offering, which gives marketers the ability to capture leads from presentation readers.

How does it now integrate with HubSpot?

When you use their lead capture product you are able to connect to your HubSpot account to manage those leads. Leads will flow directly to your HubSpot account, where you can find them in your contacts database. You can also segment and score leads based on their interaction with your SlideShare content.

HubSpot Connect - inboundli integration

 

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 2.17.47 PMinboundli is content curation software for Marketers. Their product allows you to source and publish the most relevant content for any industry. This includes help with social publishing, scheduling, and a slick integration into HubSpot’s social inbox and workflows.

How does inboundli integrate with HubSpot?

This integration allows you to easily find content that your audience will love and publish that material via social inbox. You can also integrate inboudli to provide content for your workflows.

Schedule Email Dashboards For Your Team [Reporting Add-On]

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 2.19.11 PM

Many teams rely on scheduled reporting emails to keep everyone in the loop on sales & marketing performance. Email Dashboards, a new feature of the HubSpot Reporting Add-On, allows you to schedule an email digest of any dashboard that will get sent to your team on a regular basis.

How it Works

To set up an email report, navigate to any dashboard and click the "Email" dropdown at the top right of the dashboard. Select "Send", and fill in the options. You'll have the ability to control who receives the email report, the frequency (daily, weekly, or monthly) and the day/time.

The email itself is clean and simple, with a visual of every report on the dashboard, along with a link to click through to the underlying dashboard in HubSpot. To stop receiving a dashboard you have scheduled, visit the management view.
