There really is something in these announcements that can help every type of organization. Let’s dive in!
1. HubSpot Growth Suites bundle all of the sales, marketing, and customers service tools you need for 25% off
The release of Growth Suite bundles is huge. This is the opportunity for businesses to get all of the growth software tools they need, fully integrated together and for 25% off the standalone prices.
If you’re not super familiar with HubSpot, you may not understand why this is so great, so let’s back up a step.
HubSpot offers three different "Hubs," which are software programs that incorporate core functions into all-in-one platforms. The three Hubs are Marketing, Sales, and Service. Each is available for purchase separately with its own price. And each is available at Starter, Professional, and Enterprise price levels.
But with this announcement, companies can get the full software suite of all three platforms at a discount of 25% off the standalone prices!
This means that your teams, tools, and data are always connected and supported on a single system. Basically, it’s all the tools HubSpot has to offer at the Starter, Professional, or Enterprise level, available in a single package for 25% off.
If you’re interested in grabbing this deal, hurry! The price will increase on November 1, 2018.
2. HubSpot Video is a game-changer for creating and tracking videos across your business
If one thing is clear about marketing and sales today, it’s that a strong video strategy is critical.
Well, we’ve all been waiting for it, and it’s finally here! HubSpot Video was announced at Inbound 2018. HubSpot Video helps you execute a video strategy that matches how people consume videos today. There’s something to love with this new product for marketing pros, sales reps, and customer service teams alike.
For marketers, HubSpot Video allows you to generate leads by creating and managing videos in HubSpot, adding in-video CTAs and forms, and creating a more interactive experience.
For sales and service teams, HubSpot Video gives teams a simple way to create, send, and track personal, one-to-one videos, all from within the HUbSpot CRM.
The big takeaway here is that you can now incorporate your video strategy right into your HubSpot portal, so you can see the impact it’s having across all of your channels. How cool is that!?
3. HubSpot’s website platform is now available as a standalone product—which means integrating your website and sales strategy just got easier
The HubSpot CMS, or content management system, is now available as a single product, allowing businesses of any size the ability to turn their website into a sales and marketing tool to drive leads.
A content management system centralizes your site assets like the blog, landing pages, and email communications and templates, so you can create robust content campaigns with a single login. Add in the HubSpot database's capabilities to track performance and engagement, and virtually any site can transform from a brochure of services to a helpful resource for your prospects and customers to learn more about your business and ways you can help them - all with data for your sales and marketing teams to learn what's working and what isn't.
The CMS is built to be optimized for any device, so web visitors can easily access your site across mobile and desktop devices. And of course, the CMS integrates with the HubSpot CRM to allow you to harness the power of your customer and prospect database to proved the best possible experience for site traffic.
