30+ Free Resources for Quick Marketing Wins

CLE-HUG.pngYou know the drill. As marketers, we are forever pressed for creative, performance-driven ideas. In the era of fast-paced, connected consumers, we must constantly evolve to prove our marketing success. And, we must do it quickly. 

In a recent blog post, Paul Roetzer articulates the challenge: 

“There have never been more choices for marketers. There has never been more noise. There has never been more demand for performance.” 

To solve for business growth challenges, PR 20/20 organized an interactive Cleveland HubSpot User Group (HUG) event on Wednesday, March 23 featuring the Marketing Growth HackathonTM. In as little as one hour, attendees collaborated to come up with campaign ideas that could be activated in as little as 30 to 90 days. (Sending a special thanks to Advance Ohio for hosting the event!)

The Marketing Growth HackathonTM: HubSpot Edition

We invited Cleveland HubSpot users to join forces and collaborate during an interactive workshop led by Paul Roetzer (@paulroetzer). During the hackathon, Paul presented the six-step planning model and facilitated group brainstorming to identify campaign ideas with the greatest probability of success. At the end of each hackathon, marketers are left with:

  • Prioritized and simplified marketing goals.
  • Dynamic campaign ideas.
  • Insight on how to apply new technologies and processes to improve efficiencies.
  • Greater value in a HubSpot license.

At the HUG, we brought together creative minds from all marketing disciplines and backgrounds to unlock the true value of results-driven ideas. Each group walked away with unique ideas that have both a high impact rating and ability to execute.
