Why Use HubSpot CRM?

Why We Went HubSpot

Check out this episode of the Company Growth Podcast to learn why Tangible Words Co-founder Alysha Dominico chose HubSpot, and how we make use of each HubSpot "hub" within the main CRM system to maximize our sales and marketing efforts. 

The Perfect Pair: HubSpot CRM & CMS

When you start with the HubSpot CRM, you'll quickly be impressed by its versatility, the accessibility of customer support, and the cohesive user experience it provides. But if you're hoping to go further and combine your CRM with content and/or website design all under one roof, the HubSpot CMS Hub (content management system) is a spectacular addition to your HubSpot plan.

Cohesive Sales & Marketing: Using the HubSpot Activity Feed 

The HubSpot activity feed helps make your leads into customers. It allows you to track your leads' interactions with your website and content, and know who is looking at what, when. With all this engagement and activity data, you can more efficiently distribute your marketing and sales efforts to supply potential customers with the content they're looking for, and eventually, make a sale to someone who really knows and needs your product.

Cleaning Up Your CRM

Your CRM stores a lot of data. The HubSpot CRM makes it easy to clean up and manage your contacts, communications, content and reports. 

How To Clean Up Your CRM Marketing Contacts

Have you got way too many contacts that don't seem to engage with your content? Sometimes quality is better than quantity. Check out this blog post to learn tips and tricks for paring down your contact list and getting better engagement rates from engaged leads. It will also save you money on removing unnecessary contacts in your CRM.

How To Clean Up Your CRM Data

CRMs are meant to collect data, but what kind of data they collect is up to you and your needs as a company. Cleaning up your data involves getting rid of duplicate, incorrect or unhelpful data to help you see your company's marketing, sales and service results more clearly (depending on what HubSpot hubs you're using). 

In this episode of the Company Growth Podcast, Tangible Words Co-founder Vicky Marrack talks about cleaning up your CRM data for a more efficient, rewarding marketing and sales process.
