Shot 2: HubSpot Feature/Tip of the Week

HubSpot’s new learning centre – for managing all your certifications

Another reminder to do the training – so much good content.

Takeaway: never say things along the way about talking about the releases.

Shot 3: Challenge of the Week

How Slack uses Twitter:

Document a process for how you ‘speak’ on each of your company channels.

Shot 4: Stat of the Week

INBOUND is sold out!  I heard from a birdy that there is around 20,000 people attending this year!

Shot 5: Opinion of the Week

A contrarian, but I think accurate, look at how Google is destroying the search ecosystem:

Shot 6: Pro Tip of the Week

What types of content get shared:

http://buzzsumo.com/blog/magical-content-gets-links-shares-new-research-buzzsumo-majestic/

Our research identified five content types that have the potential to achieve both high numbers of shares and high numbers of domain links. These are:

  1. Authoritative content that answers popular questions, such as ‘what is ..?’
  2. Strong opinion posts and political posts
  3. Content that provides original research and insights
  4. Content that leverages a trending topic but that also provides practical insights
  5. Authoritative news content on new products or developments

Shot 7: Resource of the Week

Lead scoring and nurturing:

Although it covers a different product – Drip – the approaches he goes through are well worth reviewing.

Particularly understanding lead nurturing versus customer nurturing, and also the different types of nurturing that apply to early startup companies versus established companies.
