This episode of the Hubcast is brought to you by Qwilr.
We told you last episode that we’ll be doing a live Hubcast recording at INBOUND, now we want to know:
What are you hoping to take away from INBOUND this year?
Property of the Week: Company Property Series
Company Domain Name
“The company's website domain. HubSpot Insights uses this domain to provide you with basic information about the company. Every property marked with an asterisk (*) can be populated automatically by HubSpot Insights once the domain name is populated.”
If your contact’s email address has a different domain than their company, you can manually populate the Company Domain Name property and get all of the associated HubSpot Insights.
What’s on Marcus’ Mind
Marcus has a lot on his mind this week - specifically when it comes to businesses using video on landing pages. Listen to the episode to hear more!
HubSpot Wishlist: More efficient way to find and merge duplicate contacts
“Today we have to go into a Contact records and use the Merge function to find the other emails and merge them. That's a manual process. A pain for large Contact databases.
The Contact list should have a "Find and Dedup" option. The CRM should find likely duplicates not based on the email identifier but other personal identifiers: same name, similar name in same location, etc. Flag those in the list and make it easy to check the duplicate Contacts and "Merge" them.
This really needs to be done as part of the platform as growing companies, teams with many people using Gmail as part of their outreach, etc. will constantly result in new Contact records that can go unnoticed as duplicates of existing records.” - seobrien
