How to Use the HubSpot Chatbot for Inbound Marketing (and More)

Camille Winer Jul 9, 2019

If you're a HubSpot user, you've probably noticed a new(ish) item in your portal: Conversations. This is essentially HubSpot's chat tool, and with it, you can do both live chat (staffed by a member of your team) and add automated chat, AKA chatbots, to your website.

Way back in 2016, HubSpot cofounder Brian Halligan called chatbots "the biggest wave we’ve seen in technology in the last two decades” while speaking at the INBOUND conference. And yet many teams still aren't using chatbots, fearing they take a lot of resources to set up or, worse, that they'll somehow "take over" — and damage — their relationships with leads. But none of those things are true. The fact is, chatbots are at your service, they're integral to inbound marketing, and they free up your team for the marketing activities best done by a human.

In short, if you can set up an FAQ page, you can set up a chatbot.

In this blog, I'll explain how chatbots fit into inbound marketing and show how the HubSpot chatbot works. (If you still have questions, feel free to contact Yodelpop to set up a demo.)

At their best, annual reports are a golden opportunity for nonprofits to showcase their accomplishments through storytelling and photos, thank their donors and supporters, and issue a clear call to action to readers for how they can help keep the momentum going. At their worst, they're a boring exercise in self-promotion or a thinly-veiled request for donations.

If you publish an annual report, you want the former, not the latter. But how do you get there? There are so many formats and storytelling approaches — which one is best for your organization? Moreover, should you even bother publishing an annual report?
