Hubcast 68: Zendesk HubSpot Integration, Lead Scoring Strategy, & Content Managers

The Hubcast

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.

HubSpot Strategy

Lead Scoring:

Determine your scoring criteria

  • Company
  • Location
  • Business type/industry
  • Revenue
  • Number of employees
  • Lead source
  • Title/job role
  • Level of responsibility

Focus on Positive & Negative Criteria for each area.

Determine your scoring thresholds

You may think numbers are numbers and what you want is what you want… but, you need to give yourself a padding around your “Perfect Lead Score”. So if you have been saying it's once they get to 50 points.. maybe the conversation should be when they hit somewhere in the range of 45 to 55.


Whatever you can!

MQLS, SQLS, Deal Stages, Communications and so on.

HubSpot Agency Spotlight

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 11.13.30 AM

Agency Name: Prospect Builder


Reason for the spotlight: Love that they are so niche. Copy dealers and managed services… The hubcast always talks about the riches are in the niches. It is super nice to see someone out there walking the walk.

Also love that they are a young agency building a remote team.

How does Zendesk integrate with HubSpot?

The Zendesk for HubSpot integration automatically syncs Zendesk events with the HubSpot Sales and Marketing tools.

  • Monitor contacts or Zendesk activities from the CRM or contact timeline
  • Add events for any ticket submission, resolution or satisfaction rating in just a few clicks.

The Zopim integrations brings even more power and context to HubSpot CRM.

  • Automatically sync your customers’ Zopim activity to their HubSpot contacts, so you have the full picture for how your support team and customers are interacting.

How might Marketing and Sales use this?

Your customers don’t think about your business in terms of their lifecycle stage. And as such they expect a cohesive experience whether they are talking to sales, support, or getting an email from marketing. Sharing information through your CRM, Marketing tools, and support tools gives you a unified view of your customers.

Marketing and Sales will love this information.

  • Sales can now review account issues before jumping on an upsell call.
  • Marketing can delight customers by triggering workflows based on help-desk tickets.
