Now that you’ve gone through the process of creating your buyer personas, what now? How do you determine what leads are associated with each persona so that you can better serve them appropriate and desired content? How do you know which persona a contact most relates to? I sought out these same questions when I first started creating form fields to identify personas. Doing a quick google search, I could find plenty of information on how to create personas, how to create form fields in HubSpot, and the importance of identifying which persona your leads fall under. I was not, however, able to find any information on what kinds of questions to ask to qualify leads for a specific persona. Since then, I have figured out how to tackle persona form field questions and now it’s time to share what I’ve learned.
As I’ve stated many times in the past, we’re huge fans of the HubSpot marketing automation platform at 30dps. And… full disclosure here… we’ve taken that love for HubSpot to the point of becoming a Certified Agency Partner. One of the reasons we’ve done that is that the system has a ton of powerful tools that are all available from a single interface. When it comes to social media marketing, HubSpot’s Social Monitoring tool is one of our favorites.
One of the many great features of a marketing automation tool like HubSpot is the ability to set up email workflows that deftly and automatically nurture prospects by delivering the right marketing content in the right sequence. However, as one of the top HubSpot agencies in Colorado, we advise the clients we work with nationwide that in order to make the most of email workflows, you have to use them wisely. “Automated” should never be equated with “mindless” or “robotic.”
It goes without saying that social media marketing can provide tremendous benefits for any organization, but I’ll say it anyway! As one of the top HubSpot agencies in Colorado, we advise our clients nationwide to take advantage of the sales-boosting prospect engagement that you can derive from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms. And when they do, we point out that the social media reports in HubSpot are a great way to analyze the effectiveness of your social media outreach so you can continually evolve your strategy for ever-better results.
There's no hiding the fact that we are unapologetic HubSpot fans here at 30dps. So I will make no pretense at this being an unbiased answer to the title question. However, we do occasionally run across folks with whom we have a discussion about the "high cost" of HubSpot. Candidly, we put off our own decision to start using HubSpot for over a year, largely because of the perception that the cost was too high for our meager marketing budget. But since the day we pulled the trigger on it, we've never looked back with anything but satisfaction and gratitude.
Yesterday, a friend and colleague to whom I had long been singing the praises of HubSpot, finally made the leap. Immediately after taking the plunge he texted me and said "You're a great sales rep for them." I didn't hesitate to reply, "Ha! Well, it’s easy to 'sell' something if you believe in it!" Such a simple yet true statement.
One of the many things we love about HubSpot here at 30dps is that it’s a company that is always looking to improve its product, and consequently it’s a marketing automation platform that is better, darn near every time you log in. OK, that’s an exaggeration, but you get my point.
As a long-time agnostic, I always prided myself in saying that everyone was entitled to have their own view, but I was largely undecided and somewhat impartial to one side of the argument or another. I've since come to realize that sometimes there IS one "right" answer, and to ignore it, or to fail to embrace that truth is just, well... foolishness. I stand (or sit) here today as a changed man. And I'm not (in this particular case) talking about my Christian faith, but my changed views on content management systems.
