Workflow Go Actions now in Contacts!

Action: review and clean up your workflows!

Shot 3: HubSpot Sales Feature of the Week

Collecting an organisation specific lead source as a contact property (like HubShots lead source), in a dropdown. Why?  Because you may want to track other activities, like radio, magazine ads, foot traffic, partner referrals etc.

One way we have used it is when people don’t convert on the builder’s website we use that to remarket to potential customers to visit the display home and get the sales team in the home to ask where people found them.

Shot 4: HubSpot Extra of the Week

HubSpot and cookies:


What did Google and Apple announce?

Google announced a new version of Chrome last year that would stop sending third-party cookies in cross-site requests unless they’re secured and flagged using an IETF standard called SameSite.

Apple, at their developer conference last June, announced a new version of Intelligent Prevention Tracking: the system that limits ad functionality on its native browser, Safari. The new version cracks down on first-party cookies.”

Nothing to worry about in terms of Hubspot tracking script in Chrome.

However, for Safari:

“The biggest change with the newest ITP update is that first party cookies stored in Safari that are unused for seven days will be deleted. This means that visitors who don’t return to your website within seven days will look like new visitors to HubSpot (or any other analytics tool). That means that your “unique visitor” or “new visitor” metrics may rise. In addition, you’ll likely see less browsing history in the contact records of Safari users.”
