Firstly, what is a HUG?
Unfortunately, the HUG we’re talking about isn’t a warm embrace of love and affection...unless you’re super passionate about Inbound Marketing! HubSpot User Group events are free to attend and hosted all over the world by local HubSpot agency partners - 150 worldwide! They’re not only open to HubSpot users but to anyone who has an interest in all things marketing. The idea is to bring like-minded people together and develop their skills on the HubSpot software and make sure they’re getting the most out of it, and share the updates on the latest tools.
In case you’re not sold on the idea yet, here are 5 reasons why you should attend your local HubSpot User Group event...
1. It’s a great networking opportunity
HubSpot User Groups give you and fellow colleagues the chance to connect and mix with like-minded marketers, sharing challenges and lessons-learned and broadening HubSpot knowledge. If you’re a small marketing team, it’s a great chance to meet new local marketing contacts and really grow your network.
2. Hear from the experts themselves
No matter which HUG you attend, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with a local partner agency and fellow platform users and sometimes HubSpot employees. Discussing a hot-topic or giving a broad overview, the HubSpot experts will be able to share insider expertise on the latest marketing tools that are taking the industry by storm.
3. Discuss specialist subjects with knowledgeable HubSpot agency leaders
Whether it be email marketing, workflows, landing pages, chatbots or CRM - you’ll get the lowdown on a specific topic at each HUG you attend, so there’s always fresh new insight. You’ll also get the opportunity to speak to team members of the agency hosting the event, who’ll be able to share their personal experiences.
4. Have your HubSpot questions answered face to face
Whether you’ve been using HubSpot for years or this is the first time you’ve heard of it, we’re sure you’ll have your questions. And what better place to have them answered? Even if it’s something really specific. At the Prodo-hosted HUG in Liverpool, we even offer a bespoke HubSpot Clinic service, where our technical experts will be on hand to look into your business’ portal and see how your inbound engine is performing.
5. It’s completely free
As mentioned before, it’s 100% free and who turns down a free event? Especially when you’ll take so much away with you! Whether you come alone or with colleagues, you’ll always leave having learnt something new… and sometimes with cake, too!
About the Liverpool HUG
Prodo hosts the Liverpool HUG quarterly throughout the year, helping to grow the North West’s HubSpot community. We like to hold the popular event across a number of quirky venues – some of our past locations include the iconic Royal Liver Building and FACT, the idyllic cinema setting makes for a cosy morning of learning!
Every HUG we host takes place during a morning session, jam-packed with the latest on all-things HubSpot. The agenda usually begins with a Prodo Strategist sharing their knowledge and experience, followed by a special guest (all the way from HubSpot in Dublin!) talking about a specific hot-topic. Don’t worry about being prepared, once you sign up you’ll receive all the agenda details of the day so you can have your questions at the ready! We always finish the session with our popular HubSpot clinic, so we can help with any specific queries or challenges you may be facing. If you’re not seeing the results you were expecting from your HubSpot portal, you can sign up for a free portal audit - we'll provide specific insights on how you can improve your marketing efforts and maximise your HubSpot investment with absolutely no obligation.
We’re proud to say we are the only Umbraco Gold and HubSpot Diamond Partner in the UK, and we were named the fastest-growing HubSpot partner in 2017.
