Shot 1: Inbound Thought of the Week
The Search Opportunity
#13: What percent of clicks on Google search results go to Google Shopping results?
The Google Shopping ads have become pretty compelling — the visuals are solid, the advertisers are clearly spending lots of effort on CTR optimization, and the results, not surprisingly, reflect this.
MozCast has Shopping results in 9% of queries, while clickstream data shows those results earning 0.55% of all search clicks.

2: AMP pages
Bonus: Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is here for blog posts!
This helps speed-up your blog posts for mobile visitors and make them more discoverable in Google search. Speed matters and with AMP in HubSpot, blog post content will load nearly instantaneously for mobile visitors keeping them engaged.
AMP-enabled content will display with the logo in search results and will also have the opportunity to display in Google’s carousel making it more discoverable.

HubSpot CRM Task Queues
This works for contacts, companies and deals. Basically giving structure to getting things done using the CRM on a daily basis. Watch the 2 minute video as it will give you an idea quickly on how to do this.
Did you know? 80% of sales require 5 follow-up phone calls after the meeting, yet 44% of salespeople give up after one follow-up. As a best practice, every deal in your database should have a next step
Shot 5: Opinion of the Week
The invisible fence
There are very few fences that can stop a determined person (or dog, for that matter).
Most of the time, the fence is merely a visual reminder that we’re rewarded for complying.
If you care enough, ignore the fence. It’s mostly in your head.
