I like the History and Discovery channel way too much.
Last night was a replay of one of my favorite shows Expedition Unknown, and they were talking about real life vampires. My hero Josh Gates and their experts scoured Eastern Europe for the origin of the use of garlic to ward off vampires, blood sucking, and my favorite, the wooden stake. Turns out, the locals used wooden stakes to keep a body "stuck" in it's casket to not rise again. Unfortunately, most often these poor souls turned out to be folks that were mentally or physically ill and not vampires.
Sordid history aside, Halloween got me thinking of some sales and marketing practices that really need a stake in them. These are some myths we have seen that must die forever!
HubSpot is one of the most popular tools for startups, and for good reason! Ease of use, fantastic pricing, and a product that grows as you grow are just a few of the benefits.

Most new B2B SaaS company websites look pretty similar. Nice WordPress theme with some pretty icons and screenshots, some customer logos. The ubiquitous item is the Contact Us page. But is Contact Us enough? Not even!!
Ok, so you’re being a good startup and you’ve got yourself some marketing automation. That’s awesome, you’re going to need it. While you get it set up, do yourself a favor and keep things organized before you get going too far, because it’s a real hassle to clean it up later, I know this from experience. For the record, I'm not THAT tidy of a person, but I'm forever on the quest. I'm obsessed with the Kon Mari technique, and maybe that's reflected in this article. If you don't have a place for everything, it's all over the place.
Look, there are over 86 Million Google results for "startup marketing". I’ve even written some of them. And I massively believe in getting product marketing right, creating content, and using a CRM correctly and jointly between Sales and Marketing. But one article you don’t see much of has to do with the infrastructure of these programs, and infrastructure can make or break you later, so it’s important to do setup correctly and now.
