Last week's Marketing Transformation Week program generated dozens of eye-opening stats , hundreds of helpful how-to's , and thousands of valuable insights on how businesses are abandoning costly, outdated traditional marketing tactics in favor of higher-yield, easier-to-track inbound marketing tactics like blogging and search engine optimization.

[By the way, we've archived all of the content shared during Marketing Transformation Week here , for those of you who missed any of it.]

The Twittersphere was pretty active in participating in the week's events (thanks, guys!), and many of the most valuable insights were shared by HubSpot's Twitter followers , using the #transform hashtag.

We wanted to acknowledge and share some of the very best transformation-themed tweets with you here. May they inspire you to start transforming your own low-yield marketing programs into finely-tuned lead-generation machines!

4. Don't just say your company is the 'leading'...prove it with info online that helps beyond just selling. #transform (via @JimEJr )

5. Good marketers have a social media presence, not a resume. A sweet blog is more telling than a degree. #transform (via @RachelGettingIt )
