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.So what does the industry think?
“The new features that I am most excited about are the custom contact form fields and smart calls to action. Both features empower us to create a more personalized experience for our customers … With the rollout of HubSpot 3, I can now have up to 1,000 custom fields on my contact records. I see a lot of segmented lists in my future,” writes Shannon Fuldauer of Kuno.
“With smart CTAs, visitors to my site will see different content based on where they fall within the sales funnel,” she adds.
“So HubSpot3 has been released with features such as Smart CTAs, Smart Forms, Workflows and Dynamic Smart Lists, all of which enable you to change automatically the content that your prospects see based on any information that you have about them in your contacts database,” points out Johnny Mone of Brightfire.
“A new email platform that crushes it. (I would be very surprised if HubSpot customers continue to use a different email platform like an AWeber, MailChimp or Infusionsoft because of the abilities of this enhanced feature.),” comments Marcus Sheridan of The Sales Lion.
“As we learned about the new tools and HubSpot upgrade, we were simply amazed,” Kristin Linde of Visual Inspiration concludes laconically.
