This was the best webinar ever. This was packed with usable information; presenters that gave value tips and information.
A whopping show this morning, likely our most ambitious broadcast to date. We had 120 partners tune in from across the globe to hear from six different guests.

These sessions just keep just getting better…Awesome Guy's
This was excellent! I'm so fired up for our team! Awesome Awesome!
Guys, today was one of THE best partner calls -- thank you!
Why would someone want to re-invent the wheel? The Channel Partners see all the mistakes everyone else is making - why not take advantage of their insights??? Can you really afford to not have the value of their insights? What is/will that cost you - now & in the near term & future???!!!
Love the partner highlights - very motivating and would like to see more examples of how others are doing it...
This week we featured presentations from Max Traylor at IMR Corp and Chad Pollitt at Digital Relevance. Max walked us through his inbound marketing pitch, asking us whether or not we, or the client should be the pirate captain.
Chad talked about his mature inbound marketing agency, and how his team is structured around one giant inbound marketing campaign. Really cool slides, Chad!

Note: it appears as if the audio and slides are a tad off, at least for the first several minutes of the broadcast. Apologies!
Welcome to our inaugural "Smervices" broadcast!
We're doubling down on our efforts to bring Partners closer into the HubSpot ecosystem. This week, we built an agenda that follows our internal "Smervices" meetings at HubSpot. We rounded up HubSpotters in Sales, in Marketing and in Services to present their big wins and big thoughts from the month of March. We also covered a few noteworthy product changes.
We look forward to making these sessions even more helpful and actionable. If you have any feedback for us, we'd love to see you jot some notes in the comments section of this post.
As a reminder, next week's broadcast will start at 1pm ET.
