Content Marketing

Forbes defines content marketing as “a marketing technique of creating and distributing valuable, relevant and consistent content to attract and acquire a clearly defined audience – with the objective of driving profitable customer action.”
 

Your Content Library

Content marketing is blogs, videos, e-books, webinars, articles - any kind of content that you can imagine that might drive eyes and ears to your website and make it a more welcoming and useful place for your audience to hang out.

Hubspot CRM is your one-stop shop for content marketing, with tools to help you easily embed all kinds of content into your website and optimize it for SEO with metadata and other important SEO tools.
 

Email Marketing

The key to successful marketing is communication. And no matter how many times someone declares its demise, email is not going away any time soon as an effective way to speak to your target audience.
 

Know Your Audience

With Hubspot’s built-in tools, you’ll create emails tailored for conversion while CRM tools give you the insight to create personalized emails that your contacts will read (and love).

Hubspot’s email marketing tools include:

  • A drag-and-drop editor to easily create and modify your content

  • A CRM tool that tailors your email, not just to your overall audience, but to each individual recipient

  • Email scheduling, so you can be assured that your message will hit those inboxes without having to remember when to hit “send”

  • Secure and regulation-compliant storage of any data that comes back to you from your customers to ease your (and their) mind that their privacy is protected
     

Social Media

We can all agree that social is a vital component of any modern digital marketing initiative.

HubSpot helps you keep tabs on all interactions and audiences on your social media profiles. It targets specific audiences with messaging personalized using data from your contact database in your CRM as well as data from your Marketing Software.
 

Social Butterfly

With HubSpot, your entire social media strategy is managed from one central location — from planning to sharing to analysis.

HubSpot’s Social Media Management software also turns your content offers into social posts. It schedules posts weeks in advance and monitors keywords that are trending and relevant to your brand and audience. 
 

Google Ads

In the high-stakes bidding frenzy that is Google Ads, Hubspot’s Google Ads Keyword Planner is your ace in the hole. It helps hone your keywords to a fine point and aim them directly where you need them to go.

We’ll harness this tool for you to guide you through the intricacies of Google Ads. Together we’ll build the kind of traffic that takes you from where you are to where you need to be.
 

Google Precision

The Hubspot Google Ads Keyword Planner helps you:

  • Generate keyword ideas: Simply enter a few keywords that you’ve brainstormed yourself, and the tool responds with a comprehensive list of related keywords that tell you what readers want to know. You’ll also gain important intelligence like average monthly searches, competition, and the average PPC (pay-per-click) bid range.

  • Look at search volume: Another vital bit of information in this report is the monthly search volume (MSV). While Google only gives you a wide range for this number, Hubspot’s Plan Overview section shows you a much more specific number under its “impressions” heading.

  • Analyze search intent: Knowing the keywords is just the beginning of the battle. You also need to know why readers are searching for that keyword. It’s a pivotal factor in ranking. And Hubspot helps you find it.

  • Plan search engine ads: The keyword planner gives you everything you need to create Google ads right through the Hubspot portal.

  • Discover competitor keywords: It’s always vital to know as much as possible about what the competition is up to. The keyword planner lets you enter a competitor’s URL into the keyword search bar to see exactly what keywords the competition is ranking for.
     

Project Management

Obviously, Hubspot is no one-trick pony. It provides you with a long list of tools for web, social, SEO, content, and more. But, when you’re busy creating and perfecting all of these marketing efforts, it’s easy to get bogged down in the details and lost in the intricacies of managing all those projects.

Luckily, Hubspot is there to handle project management headaches as well.
 

Platform Parkour

Why keep switching between, and trying to coordinate, multiple platforms to keep your teams in step and marching in the right direction together? We’ll show you a simple, convenient, and robust productivity tool that lives right where you’re already working - in Hubspot.

Hubspot product management features include:

  • Providing one place for all your tasks, files, and communication

  • Setting due dates, assigning owners, adding attachments, and linking to other tools like blog posts and site pages - all within Hubspot

  • Turning any project into a template or using templates provided by Hubspot to easily launch future projects without reinventing the wheel

  • And more...
     

Workflows

Workflows are a powerful and no-hassle method to manage and nurture your marketing database as you shepherd leads through your funnel.

On the email side, Hubspot Workflows harnesses HubSpot’s list segmentation tool to help you construct ultra-specific lead segments to be targeted with customized campaigns.

You can:

  • Send automated welcome emails to all new customers

  • Omit leads with a “gmail” address from your marketing campaigns

  • Nurture new whitepaper leads in different ways depending on their industry and company role
     

Expert Assistance

Speaking of lead nurturing, Workflows fully automates that process to free you up for other important tasks.

  • Whip up highly customized, robust lead nurturing emails with Workflows

  • Easily add as many email messages as you’d like to a workflow

  • Include granular, down-to-the-minute delays such as adding users who’ve completed your campaign to a list of follow-up to-dos
     

You’ve Got Mail

But it’s not just a lead-nurturing tool. Workflows are directly integrated with HubSpot’s email tool so you can easily:

  • Create customized emails catering specifically to each lead

  • Manage templates, tweak and test your message and build your emails from within one easy-to-use, powerful interface

  • Harness HubSpot’s powerful and detailed analytics tools to see which leads opened which messages, when, which links they clicked on, and what subsequent actions they took
     

A Clear Path Through The Funnel

And move beyond emails to automate common marketing processes, moving all those leads efficiently (and scalably) through your funnel.

  • Change a lead’s lifecycle stage as a result of specific actions taken

  • Transfer a lead to Salesforce when specific qualification thresholds are met

  • Send a webhook to another system notifying it of a new contact
     

Salesforce

With Hubspot’s Salesforce integration, you get a powerful, fast, and reliable way to integrate your databases with no special setup required.
 

Not just integration: Optimization

Benefits of this no-fuss integration include:

  • Keeping sales and marketing databases harmoniously coordinated with bi-directional synch

  • Sending vital lead intelligence to your sales team

  • Supercharged revenue reporting and lead intelligence

  • Split-second setup with no technical knowledge required

  • A dedicated team of engineers maintaining and improving your integration

  • More easily personalizing marketing emails using data from Salesforce
     

Apps

It’s not easy to create a cohesive customer experience and manage data across your tech stack.
