How to Nurture Trial Leads Into Customers [Customer Story]

by Dustin Tysick


August 8, 2017 at 10:00 AM

The buyer's journey has changed. In the SaaS industry, many shoppers want to try new tools before they buy them — they prefer a free trial to a call with a salesperson.

For Jostle, this trend was a problem. Our product is an internal communication tool for businesses, which means it’s meant to be used by an entire company. It’s hard to show value in a free trial that includes just one user and no pre-populated content.

So this year, we decided to change something. A whopping 80% of people reaching our demo request page were leaving without taking action. We needed to capture these lost leads and convert them into happy customers. Here's how we did it.

How to Attract, Convert, and Close Visitors Using Live Chat

by Karl Pawlewicz

There’s gold in live chat transcripts.

How to Publish 100 High-Impact Blog Posts This Year [Customer Story]

by Jeff Allaire


June 13, 2017 at 10:00 AM

We started with HubSpot in March of 2014. When we began, we had no history with blogging or content creation of any kind. Like many small companies, we had a fairly static website, a Facebook page, and little else in the way of web presence.

We knew we had to do something to ignite our presence on the web, and after learning about HubSpot, we decided to jump into blogging. Content creation has been our springboard into the digital world, and producing frequent, high-quality articles has been the foundation for our success with the blog and beyond.
