If you rely on HubSpot for marketing automation or customer relationship management, lifecycle stages are an essential component of the platform. The problem is that they can be really confusing to understand since the concept of each stage is open to interpretation and adaptation, but HubSpot’s current format makes the lifecycle stage implementation pretty rigid and automatic. Developing a clear understanding of the purpose of each stage and how they can work most effectively to motivate leads to become customers will help your sales and marketing teams avoid the need for workarounds in the future.
The holidays are right around the corner, which is about the time most people start thinking about charity, donations, and gift-giving. However, for nonprofit organizations, attracting public attention to sustain their cause is a consistent process throughout the entire year. During the seasons when donating and volunteering are not necessarily top of mind, it’s essential for charities to have a robust marketing plan. But, like most good things, marketing costs money. This is where Google Ad Grants comes to the rescue.
If you’re familiar with the Hubspot CRM or HubSpot Marketing software, you probably already know that it’s one of the best programs for inbound marketing and sales teams. The platform offers plenty of freedom with easy integration options for social media, email, and websites, but the system (and sometimes even the concept of inbound marketing) can be unfamiliar to members of your team. This is where HubSpot outshines the competition and positions itself as an industry leader.

Over the past decade in the U.S. alone, the $30 billion industry has grown by 3 - 4% every year, which might explain why you’re seeing signs for CrossFit gyms and açai bowls everywhere these days.
If you’re somewhere in between a total beginner and a modest level of experience when it comes to your understanding of inbound fundamentals, HubSpot Academy’s Inbound course will definitely be worth your time. As someone with previous experience creating content (like blog posts and landing pages) for inbound marketing agencies, with more of an intuitive, loosey-goosey grasp on the core concepts but no clear definitions, this course gave me a lot of “a-ha” moments.
