Why We Do What We Do #HubcastLove

Happy New Year Marcus,George!

Super bummed that I missed you guys at INBOUND, was crazy for both of us it sounds.

I was having lunch with an old friend of mine who is the business leader for a small business and when I explained what we are up to, he immediately asked, "Do you know who Marcus and George are?".

He then goes on to explain how listening to the Hubcast transformed their business and now can't keep up with the demand. Prior to him starting their marketing was zilch and while he had a sales background,

Lot's of stories out there like this, but thought I'd share it.

Hope you are well!

Hubcast Updates

Refreshed Designs for Your Contacts Tools

Your contacts database is your home base for understanding the people interacting with your business.

With the goal of making your contacts tools easier to use and more consistent with the rest of your HubSpot platform, HubSpot’s been working hard for the last few months on fresh new designs for four screens: All Contacts, the contact record, Lists, and imports.

All Contacts, the contact record, Lists, and imports.

HubSpot is excited to announce that all HubSpot customers have been moved over to the new designs. Rest assured --- the major functionality you're used to hasn't been altered.

The updates focus solely on look and feel.

Note: Some HubSpot customers have been using versions of the updated designs for the last few months. If you’re one of those customers, the changes you see to All Contacts, the contact record, and Lists today will be more minor — you’re already used to most of the new design.

All Contacts

Here's a look at your fresh new All Contacts screen:

A few highlights to bring to your attention:

A fresh new look

The new design is more spacious and more modern. It's easier to look at and more joyful to use.

More consistent with the rest of your HubSpot portal

If you've been watching closely, you'll notice a trend: your entire HubSpot portal is getting a fresh new look, from your Marketing Dashboard to your CRM. This update to All Contacts (and the corresponding refresh of the contact record) bring the same consistent style to your contacts database.

Unified with CRM

If you use HubSpot for both marketing and CRM, your All Contacts screens will now match, across both tools.

Drag & drop columns

Add the columns to your All Contacts page that are most important to your business and prioritize them in the way you see fit.
