Welcome back to The Hubcast folks, a weekly podcast all about HubSpot news, tips, and tricks. Please also note the extensive show notes below including some new HubSpot video tutorials created by George Thomas.
In this week's strategy section we talk about when to send and share your email marketing content. We share our thoughts on best practices as well as historical data we have collected from our own Email marketing strategy. Your mail is important, don't let the time you send effect your engagement negatively.
HubSpot Tips & Tricks
You pay for the HubSpot tool, you should leverage every ounce of it you can. In this week's tip / trick we show you how to use your HubSpot email, subscribe forms and your Wordpress RSS functionality to connect your Wordpress blog and email tool for some deeper data insights.
We can easily track inbound links with our page performance tool. However, what about all the links we add to our own pages? It would be great if we could see what internal links are getting clicked most and to what pages or offers they are going to. This functionality would help us leverage smarter linking strategies moving forward.
New Forms Submission Dashboard
How your forms are performing matters. You should easily be able to find metrics about how forms are working without having to click through to each individual contact or manually calculate metrics.
Now in your HubSpot portal you will see a new forms submission dashboard that makes your experience with tracking forms easier by showing the most important metrics at the top, and then giving the ability to dive into specific contacts below. This new dashboard displays performance metrics such as total views, total submissions, and conversion rate for the form you are viewing so you can understand how each form is performing.
Accessing the New Forms Submission Dashboard
To access the new dashboard simply go into your Forms, and click on the submissions for the dashboard you would like to view.
Within this new dashboard you can click on any contact that has completed the form to find out more information about that contact.
Embedding a Form
In addition to finding form metrics HubSpot has made embedding a form easier. You can now see the 'Embed' option within the form submission dashboard on the top right.
The new forms submission dashboard is now available to all customers.
Cool HubSpot & Inbound Tweets / iTunes Reviews
Twitter was super quiet this week! People are in shutdown for the holiday mode. So we wanted to take the opportunity to share a couple of iTunes reviews that made us smile.
One of the Absolute Best
This is one of the podcasts I look forward to each and every week. As a Hubspot user, the advice and information given both during the podcasts and in the show notes is phenomenal - and much more user friendly (and less boring) than slogging through Hubspot's education center.
More, however, than just "how to use Hubspot"- the show is chock full of relevant and useful marketing advice that makes it a must-listen for any content marketer.
This is the only podcast I listen to religiously the day it comes out.
HubSpot customers need to listen to this!
Everytime I listen I learn something new and awesome about HubSpot. George has great tech insight into the software, and Marcus throws in amazing marketing content, but neither of them dive in too deep to turn away listeners who might not be experts in one certain area vs another. It's an excellent podcast and I never miss it. These guys are like the voice of the HubSpot masses, and it's great getting to hear what other users are benefiting and hurting from by using the software. If you want to get the most of of HubSpot, and learn how to generate top notching marketing content for your site, listen up!
Go leave us a review on iTunes so we know what more of our listeners are thinking. This is your show, so if you love and it how it is, make sure you let us know. If you want some things to change... hey, we want to know that as well.
