THE
HARD TRUTH 

ABOUT 

MARKETING
Since 2006, HubSpot has been one of the leading
developers of marketing software, but today, we’re here to
tell you the hard truth about marketing…
YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE
BETTER AT MARKETING
THAN YOU.
That’s right.
That’s right.
Your customer who can’t use Photoshop?
That’s right.
Your customer who can’t use Photoshop?
Better marketer.
That’s right.
The one that doesn’t know what SEO stands for?
That’s right.
Better marketer.
The one that doesn’t know what SEO stands for?
That’s right.
That guy who Bings things?
That’s right.
Yeah, he’s better than your CMO.
That guy who Bings things?
10 years ago that might not have been true.
Technology is different and people have changed.
But it’s 2018.
To explain, we need to take a trip back in time...
Pluto lost its planet status.

Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day” topped the Billboard charts.

And blogging best practices dictated that you
publish new posts around the clock.
Do you remember 2006?
I know, it’s crazy.

But the thing is …
But the thing is … publishing all that content …
But the thing is … publishing all that content … it worked.
But the thing is … publishing all that content … it worked.
Over the past decade, marketers have seen traffic increase,
watched social followings skyrocket, and have developed some 

seriously ripped finger muscles.
And that’s … kind of the problem.
It worked so well, everyone started doing it.
Things got A LOT more
COMPETITIVE FOR BUSINESSES
AND A LOT MORE
CROWDED FOR BUYERS.
Not only did everyone start
publishing blogs, they created
videos, infographics, social
posts, podcasts, and much,
much, oh so much more.

So consumers? They got better at filtering out the
boatloads of content.
Just like they got better at filtering out the 

boatloads of ads back in 2006.
And we saw the same thing with email.
After years of dealing with crowded
inboxes, customers started to 

ignore delete and unsubscribe.

And if you thought social
media was spared, think
again.
The more companies published, the less people paid attention.

the less times it was shared on Twitter.

Social networks began to prioritize
posts from friends and family to keep
users on their sites.
CRAP.
Should marketers just pack up their Hawaiian
shirts and head for early retirement?
“What a ride! That was
fun while it lasted.”
¯_(ツ)_/¯

Not so fast…

People don’t hate your marketing.
(In fact, they need it, read it, sometimes even love it.)

Not so fast…
People don’t hate your marketing.
It’s just that they love their friends and family
so. much. more.
And when buying a product, they ask their opinion first.
And let’s be honest, are we really that surprised? 

Tell me you don’t love your mom more than a marketer.*

*Unless your mom’s a marketer. We can’t help you there.
Even the best optimized blog post is less influential than a customer
review.

review.
Even the most engaging facebook video remains unwatched unless
customers share it.

Even the best crafted email in the world, clever subject line and all,
gets skipped in a crowded inbox of emails from colleagues or
friends.
YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE
BETTER AT MARKETING
THAN YOU.
So while creating
content is still your best
and cheapest strategy, it
should no longer be
your only strategy…

Customer acquisition cost has increased significantly.
… because
TECHNOLOGY
HAS CHANGED,
and people listen to their
friends and families over companies.
And that’s not the only thing
technology is changing.
Just look at Amazon.
Free Two-Day Shipping

Free Same-Day Delivery
Prime Video

Prime Music
Amazon Fresh
Amazon Dash for Prime
Prime Reading
Prime Photos
Amazon Alexa

Amazon is changing the game by
setting a new gold standard for
convenience and overall customer
experience.





And consumers are loving it.
We don’t mean they “like” it…
Or even “like like” it…
We mean they REALLY love it.
In fact, Amazon just announced they have over 100 million
Prime subscribers.
That’s more than the
entire population of
Canada, Australia,
Mongolia, Scandinavia,
and Bolivia…
combined.

As marketers, you’re probably
feeling the squeeze.
But take a breath…
And remember your biggest fans.
Your customers.
People listen to your customers.
Sure, they prefer watching
miniature cooking videos
more than reading your
daily emails.
And they can’t be bothered to comment on your social posts.
But when your customers talk, people take notice…
And if you don’t think your customers help your business,
think again.
90% of consumers would spend MORE because of
excellent customer service.
Word of mouth (friends,social media) referrals

What sources of information do you rely on when making purchase decisions for business software?
77% of consumers have shared positive experiences

And over half of U.S. consumers are turning to Amazon
customer reviews to research items before they buy.
In fact, 60% of people trust what customers say when
making a purchase while only 35% trust companies.
Did you catch that?
Your customers have almost double the amount of power you do.
Your customers aren’t
just a source of revenue
anymore, they’re your
entire business.

Have you stopped doing business
with a company because of poor
customer service?
It’s no wonder companies are
struggling. Take a look at how
we view customers today.

“Yes, hello. We’re still on hold”
Yeah, it’s pretty obvious we
prioritize sales and marketing
over customer service.

So if you want to grow better, you need to ditch the funnel...
And say hello to the flywheel
— a new way to think about
customers and growth.

Because your job isn’t to close deals…
It’s to open relationships.
And those customer relationships should
power your entire business strategy.

Ignore your customers and you
endanger your company.
IN TODAY’S MARKET, THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR:
I know, it’s a different way of thinking…
But the data doesn’t lie.
And once we realized this, we
moved mountains here at HubSpot
to make meaningful changes that
would better serve our customers.
Because we now know the best
way to grow better is for
businesses and customers to
work together.
So how’d we change?
Well for starters, we’re optimizing our content for our customers, so we’re able
to get more views with less content.

Bye bye traffic plateau, hello Mount Everest levels of search traffic.
We introduced more communication channels like live chat and Facebook
Messenger. By meeting our customers where they spend their time, we’re able
to reach more people and send less emails.

experience. By making our customers our top priority, we’re able to rely on
them to advocate for us.

  • 47. And let’s be honest, are we really that surprised? 
 Tell me you don’t love your mom more than a marketer.*
