Last week, GPI's team, along with 19,000 other people, descended upon Boston for HubSpot's Inbound 2016 marketing conference. This was GPI's third year in a row attending Inbound and, yet again, it did not disappoint.
The sessions and speakers were informative and inspiring, the entertainment was fantastic and the weather was beautiful. We came away from the week excited to start implementing the strategies and tactics for attracting and delighting our audiences.
Some of the highlights of the event for us included:
- Global Content Strategy: This Is Gonna Be Big. Rebecca Lieb of Conglomotron LLC discussed creating an effective content marketing strategy for global markets. She covered possible complications with localizing your content and how to smoothly and effectively communicate with your teams.
- The Marketer's Checklist for Going Global. Niti Shah of HubSpot shared her first-hand experience of rolling out HubSpot in APAC and SEA. She discussed the lessons she learned for working with a global team and entering a new market.
- Trello Goes Global: Launching an International Marketing Strategy. Stella Garber of Trello shared their story of launching Trello in over 20 languages. 75% of web traffic and 45% of their revenue comes from outside the U.S. A big part of their localization strategy was doing crowd-sourced translations, which was interesting to learn about.
- The keynotes and entertainment: Gary Vaynerchuk, Anna Kendrick, Serena Williams, Trevor Noah and Alec Baldwin were some of our favorites and it was inspiring to hear how they have developed their brands in the digital age.
HubSpot is a pioneer in content marketing and marketing automation and continues to make strides in improving their marketing automation platform. Each year, Inbound brings together marketers across industries and locales to listen to marketing experts discuss the latest trends and strategies for engaging audiences and providing an excellent user experience.
We were happy to see the sessions on global content and localization offered and look forward to companies recognizing the benefits for localizing all of their content, from emails and blogs to landing pages, forms and CTAs.
Inbound 2017 will be back in September next year, and will without a doubt be another great marketing event.
