Have you been using your marketing automation tool for more than a year? If so, I’m guessing it looks a little something like a teenage girl’s bedroom. It is probably incredibly messy: clothes, shoes and make-up thrown everywhere, the bed and floor completely hidden from view.

The room’s owner may struggle to find shoes that match, distinguish clothes that are dirty from those that are clean or valiantly search for her cell phone amid the mess to no avail.

Asking whether or not your organization is ready for HubSpot is a valid question.

HubSpot is an all-in-one platform that is incredibly robust in what it can accomplish for your business. The problem is, you need the time, desire and marketing chops to really take full advantage of everything is has to offer. It’s what keep us in business. We have a multitalented team across a range of disciplines who know how to manipulate the tool to its fullest extent to help our clients achieve great results.

I know what you’re saying, “That’s great for everyone else, but what if I know I need inbound, but I don’t have the team or the budget to purchase HubSpot?”

Well, since you asked, the answer is simple. Meet Leadin.

Leadin is a free plugin for all CMS platforms, like Wordpress, that can help users convert your website visitors into leads while learning more about their behavior. It’s inbound without the pricetag or the complication, but still backed by HubSpot.

Last year at this time, I wrote a blog about the big product announcements coming out of HubSpot’s INBOUND14 conference. There were some pretty newsworthy developments – most notably the launch of the HubSpot CRM and Sidekick -  that were game changers for businesses looking to streamline sales and marketing alignment. In my blog, I referred to HubSpot as “the bacon of marketing” because, just like bacon makes everything you add it to better, HubSpot makes every aspect of the marketing work we do better, faster, and easier.

The Guide to Creating Mind Blowing Content

Let's face it, there is a lot of content out there. How do you get yours to stand out?

Simple, make it mind blowing!

42 pages full of ideas for creating awesome content that converts visitors into leads and leads into customers!

I have to share something with all of you. I not only consider Jeff Lyons – @usedwigs on Twitter – to be a friend, he’s also a modern-day philosopher. Case in point, he once said that the best thing anyone can bring to a party is a tray full of bacon. And if you think about it, he’s absolutely right. From breakfast sandwiches and chocolate bars, to cocktails and delicious finger food, bacon makes everything better.

(You are a wise man, Jeff. But sharing your wisdom has left me hungry.)

If you don’t believe me, get yourself to Google and type "what makes everything better” into the search bar. You’ll find the overwhelming majority of results point to bacon. Still not convinced? Check out this article by NPR, which provides mathematical proof that bacon elevates everything around it from “Meh!” to “Holy cow, that’s amazing!”

So yes, bacon is magical and delicious. But what does the greatest meat product known to man have to do with HubSpot?

There is no denying that technology has changed the marketing landscape. Without dating myself too much, let’s just say that back when I got my MBA in marketing, the internet wasn’t even part of the conversation. In addition to opening up new channels through which marketers can get their message out, technology has also offered us tools to boost efficiency and collaboration and to enhance communication within marketing teams and between brands and consumers.
