Connect to Prospects in Person With Eventbrite

You don’t have to limit your interactions with prospects and customers to online only. There's nothing more personalized than connecting with your audience face-to-face at an event. Strengthen customer relationships leading up to and at your events with Eventbrite's tools for promotion, registration, social media, easy entry management, and more.

However, events can be a big investment in terms of time and energy. You want to make sure you take full advantage by understanding how customers engaged with you before an event and afterwards. To do this, set up the HubSpot + Eventbrite integration for the CRM so that you can keep track of who was invited and in attendance to make the most of every interaction you have.

Improve Conversion Rates with JustUno

JustUno is another great free tool to enhance your lead capture strategy. You can create customized pop-ups, promotions, banners, spin-to-win offers, or exit offers. Deliver the right message at the right time by targeting visitors based on exit, page views, referral site, time on site, visit frequency, geolocation, device type, scroll, cart value, order history, local date and time, previous engagement activity, and more.

With the JustUno + HubSpot integration, you'll never lose a new contact because every conversion is pushed to your HubSpot CRM.



Complete the Customer Story Using SurveyMonkey and Typeform


Want to impress your leads, understand their journey, and cut down time to conversion? Check out Typeform’s quizzes, contact forms, and sign-up forms for capturing more conversions. They're fast to build and easy on the eyes. Best of all, getting to know your contacts better will help them have a more positive customer experience.

Getting started with Typeform is fast and easy, but make sure all the valuable information you're collecting goes to the right place. That’s where the Typeform + HubSpot integration comes in. You can match your Typeform answers with corresponding HubSpot properties in the CRM so that every detail is preserved. Plus, Typeform will automatically send tracking info into HubSpot so you know where your leads are coming from. 



You've captured the email address, but what do you really know about your new contact? What are they interested in? How did they find you? Are they a good fit for your business? By using a survey from SurveyMonkey, you can follow up with contacts who just completed a free trial or connected with you at a conference and learn a lot more about where your contact is in the buyer’s journey and how you can be most helpful.

Most importantly, don’t let any of this information go to waste. Integrate SurveyMonkey with HubSpot CRM so all the survey data is brought into HubSpot, right into the contact timeline. HubSpot will check for new submissions every 7 to 10 hours, and any new email addresses will be created as new contacts in HubSpot.
