One of the reasons Brightfire love Hubspot as a marketing tool is that there are always improvements and enhancements being made. Here’s a round-up of some of the most useful.
HubSpot, Brightfire’s strategic partner for supplying inbound marketing services in the UK and beyond, recently announced an upgrade to their set of tools that makes it easy for “mere marketing mortals” like you and me to deliver the type of personalisation that Amazon is known for, while generating better qualified leads into your marketing funnel.
“HubSpot 3 is a fully integrated marketing platform built by HubSpot in 2012. The platform is based on an extensive contact database and enables each channel of marketing to be more agile and personalized to the end recipient,” say HubSpot themselves.
Since the announcement the digital marketing world has been abuzz with chat and opinions about the advances in marketing automation that HubSpot have brought to the market. (more…)
HubSpot’s Inbound 2012 user conference in Boston last week saw the launch of Hubspot 3. There are already reviews of it available from business partners such as Visual Inspiration.
Given HubSpot’s impressive growth figures they might have decided that they did not want to change a winning formula. However, they are on a course to change the face of marketing worldwide forever by helping marketers create marketing that people love. (more…)

There is even an email alert option so you are constantly organised, fulfilling your inbound marketing plan to a tee!
Last week we looked at how HubSpot Enterprise can augment lead nurturing by automating a number of communications driven by each visitor’s unique interaction with a website.
Targeting prospects on the basis of their specific behaviour is a very sophisticated lead nurturing technique but it is not the only enhanced functionality that HubSpot Enterprise has to offer.
A critical next step in the lead generation process is to identify which of the leads in the sales funnel are sales ready. So this week we will take a look at some of the HubSpot Enterprise tools that your sales team can utilise in the process of grading leads.
Why the need to size up a lead?
Sales teams often run the risk of trawling through and calling a host of leads that are – quite honestly – not interested in making a purchase – or at least not yet ready to buy. Calling leads at the top of the sales funnel is very inefficient and a waste of your sales team’s time.
