It offers an easy-to-use marketing automation solution that allows marketing and sales departments to create, deploy, and manage online marketing campaigns from one central platform. We use Pardot for marketing automation, creating and sending out newsletters and creating custom landing pages.
Data.com is a research tool by Salesforce that acts as a source of accurate business data unified in one location. It also integrates right into Salesforce, so we can do all of this in one place and have it feed the information right into our CRM. We use Data.com for lead generation, client research, and account management.
HubSpot Marketing (formerly Leadin) is a lead generation tool that can integrate into your website’s existing contact forms and also create triggered popup windows and dropdown banners in order to collect contact information from your visitors. When a user fills out a form, HubSpot Marketing automatically creates a content consumption story to show you what pages that user visited before filling out a contact form. We use it to generate and qualify existing and new leads in order to know which prospects in our funnel are the closest to becoming buyers.
HubSpot CRM is a free contact resource management tool that can sync with Gmail and Outlook in order to record every interaction that you have with a lead. When used with HubSpot’s other available Sales and Marketing tools, it gives you a broad overview of your entire sales funnel and all of the moving pieces within it. We use the HubSpot CRM to track and manage our leads in an environment where almost everything is automated.
Gravity Forms for WordPress is a full featured contact form plugin that features a drag and drop interface, lead capture, multi-page forms, and so much more. It also integrates with PayPal, Stripe, MailChimp, AWeber, HubSpot, and if you use Zapier, you can create an endless amount of workflows that utilize the tool. We use Gravity Forms to design our main lead capture forms.
Yoast has a number of search engine optimization plugins for WordPress. It makes it super easy to adjust the SEO title, meta tag description, and URL slug for your website’s pages, and you can focus each particular page around a specific keyword. It uses the traffic-light analogy: if it shows a page with a green light you’re good to go, but if you see a red light, you should check your settings before proceeding. We use Yoast to very easily adjust the SEO settings for our’s and our client’s websites.
Buffer, like Hootsuite, is a social media management tool that helps with content curation and properly scheduled posts and tweets. It has a ‘best time’ feature that lets you automatically schedule your posts, as well as a useful browser extension, so if you find an interesting article worth sharing, you never have to leave the page in order to do so. We use Buffer to make sure all our ducks are in a row when it comes to social media.
