“It’s never been easier to get started. There’s never been a time in all of business where there’s more things at your fingertips to help you be successful. But on the flip side, it’s also never been harder to scale, because competition is so fierce.” In this episode of Ponderings from the Perch, Priscilla talks with Nicholas Holland, GM/VP of Product at Hubspot. In case you don’t know, Hubspot is a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution for inbound or content marketing. Little Bird has been a Hubspot Certified Agency Partner for five years, and loves working with the platform. In this episode, Priscilla and Nick talk about content marketing, the access that businesses have to helpful content marketing tools, and the overall direction of the marketplace.
