HubSpot Partner Day 2017: Key Takeaways

Slide courtesy of HubSpot Principal II Channel Consultant Oliver Baron

Acadia, a Gold HubSpot partner, was invited to attend Hubspot Partner Day 2017, our first such invitation - and it was an offer we couldn’t refuse.  The intense two days of learning (yes – Partner Day is actually two days) and networking with other HubSpot partners was well worth the trip to the company’s Cambridge, Mass. HQ, despite the five hour flight delay.  I returned with copious notes to share with the Acadia team so we can do an even better job of helping our customers boost their revenue.

Constructing a Winning Blueprint: Analyzing and Tracking Your Marketing Efforts

If you're a manufacturer, you know that going from blueprint to delivery requires a very customized, repeatable process. Yours probably includes highly-skilled team members, technology, procedures and more. And that's how sales and marketing should work as well. There's a special sales/marketing combination that works best for each manufacturer - it isn't one size fits all.

Best Times to Get Email Opened: Our Take

Marketing trends and best practices are always changing. It seems like just yesterday we were producing shiny brochures for snail mail. Then it was all email. Then email was dead. Then it wasn't. But when to send? Tuesdays used to be bad. Now they're good. 11 a.m. is best, but only on a weekday. So many rules. What's a marketer to do?

Going for Silver the Inbound Way

"It's called inbound marketing." 

I was busy crunching sales automation data but I couldn't help listen to Mike Murphy as he introduced me to this relatively new concept - inbound marketing. Later that day we spoke with the nice folks at HubSpot, and I was really listening.  Acadia quickly became a HubSpot partner and, over the past few years, we've fully embraced the inbound philosophy. We did something different though - we stayed true to our roots (outbound sales and marketing). The combination of inbound and outbound marketing, also known as Omnibound™ marketing, has worked. And we're pleased to announce that we've achieved silver-tier partner status. Here's a synopsis of our ride so far.

5 Tools That Everyone in the B2B Space Should Be Using

By now, hopefully, we've all stopped writing "2015" on everything. The new year is going strong, winter's finally arrived, and we're probably all working hard to use what we learned last year. Here's what I learned - tools can make or break you in the B2B space. Tools, you say? Building a dog house? No - I'm talking about apps, programs, software, websites, and so on. After making this list at the end of 2015, I've successfully narrowed down my tool suite and am saving time and energy that I can devote to our clients.

Serenity Now: Inbound, Outbound, Campbound

Forget about CRM, sales pipelines and even cake pops. Let's talk summer. You know - our children's vacation - the one that lasts about three months. The one us working parents strive to fill with fun while keeping one foot in the office door.

Since staying home watching your mom work isn't the coolest way for an eight-year old to spend his summer, we sprung for a 12-day summer camp. Six hours away. This marketing mom gets time to work, kid gets to run wild in the woods. Sounds like a plan!
