HubSpot Adds New Sales Accelerator and a Free CRM to Its Offering

by Chris Handy on September 16, 2014

Our favorite marketing tool just got a little more “salesy”, but in a good way. More on the new HubSpot CRM & Sales Accelerator Product “Sidekick” down the page.

When we first discovered HubSpot, we learned that it was a company dedicated to furthering the business growth of its clients by providing a suite of marketing tools and education. Since adopting HubSpot and becoming partners, we have drastically increased the lead generation power of not only our own site, but of our clients. Now, HubSpot has changed the game for us again.

"The traditional sales process in broken. Instead of 'always be closing,' the next generation of sales leads will 'always be helping.’" - Brian Halligan

Today, at their keynote at this years INBOUND conference, Brian Halligan & Dharmesh Shah announced their next generation of Sales Accelerator and CRM tools to the public.



I can say that I am thoroughly impressed. It is really the ease of use compared to Salesforce that makes this product special.

Why Inbound Marketing Works for the Commercial Real Estate Industry

by Bethany Handy on August 20, 2014

Unless a commercial real estate website attracts the right kind of traffic, it's essentially worthless to the agent or firm maintaining the site. Anyone is capable of finding a website through a search query but real estate agents dealing with commercial properties don't want just anybody landing on their pages. They want what HubSpot refers to as buyer personasor "holistic ideals" of what lucrative visitors represent. One great way to discover these personas essential to reaching your goals is by developing a competent inbound marketing strategy.
