Shot 2: HubSpot Marketing Feature of the Week

Google’s Invisible reCAPTCHA Available on all HubSpot Forms

Security and ensuring a good user experience are of the utmost importance when collecting information from visitors to your website. Google’s latest update to their reCAPTCHA has a higher pass rate than its predecessor for HubSpot customers, and it requires zero user-input.


Shot 3: HubSpot Gotcha of the Week

Goodbye Keywords tool

Fare thee well, we’ll miss you HubSpot Keyword Tool.

Please don’t sunset the Prospects tool… we had a client who was very excited about the Keyword tool when we were demoing it to them this week.

Shot 4: Marketing Tip of the Week

Creating Lookalike Audiences for Facebook Ads.

Lookalike Audience

This is powerful when you consider the expanded reach you can have.

Globally, people spend an average of 50 minutes a day on Facebook, giving us ample opportunities to connect with the right people.

Make sure you have setup your Facebook Pixel and enabled it within HubSpot.  Best part is you can use your HubSpot lists to create lookalike audiences!

Shot 5: HubSpot Sales Feature of the Week

Meetings - some nice personalisation options when setting up a meeting link.

Shot 6: Opinion of the Week

Is it an age thing?

It’s obviously much more efficient, but it still feels uncomfortable to me - it’s like the person who shakes your hand with a dominant hold…

When we were organising time with Brian Halligan he didn’t palm us off with a link to book in time...

Shot 9: Quote of the Week

“The key thing with human/robot this interaction is that you need to set the expectation. If you say that a chat bot will be able to answer any question, for instance, humans will use it once, find the limitations, and stop using it. Set the expectation of users appropriately.”
