What was the Business Objective of RESULTS.com?
Any company works to build a loyal customer base. So does Results.com also. The main motto of the company is to create a customer base with 100% customer satisfaction by offering excellent services. For achieving this, RESULTS.com used four diverse applications but the main problem in whole process was that all these four applications were not integrated with each other. Their website, SEO tools, webinar platform and CRM all were different and there was no provision to interact these applications with each other. To change the picture,the company did a lot but was not supportive for the exact result. SEO experts of RESULTS.com had created 50 micro-sites for the company, but that was also unsuccessful. Now the team was clear that they wanted analytics software which could help them in the analysis of their business and gaining more customers. Their motto was to expand business globally.

SEO tips from the HubSpot helped them to design the blog in such a way that they could maintain SEO ranking as well as leads. They started sharing posts through all the social media platforms. Other than that, using the HubSpotsoftware ensured them in tracking the performance of their blog. They could easily analyze the blog to check which posts generated more traffic, leads and the end customers. Thus they started blogging twice in a week. Blogging was the instant success key for RESULTS.com.

Currently they have more than 20,000 subscribers to their blogs. Using blogging was the key factor for developing Inbound marketing strategy for RESULTS.com.
Another option which HubSpot made use of was Lead generation tool, which easily converted the website visitors towards sales funnel of RESULTS.com.
