Welcome to Inbound After Hours on Keyy everybody!

Did you just join us? 🤔 Say hello and introduce yourself below 👇

There are already templates and insights in here to get stuck in to (take a look at the free template channel). We'll be providing some more resources to download, swipe, update, talk about and improve - anything you want.

We're also excited to offer the open office hour sessions. It’s an hour or so where you can pick the brains of those in the group. Whether it’s someone from the Digital 22 team or you as the community members, we want everyone to participate and run these sessions so we can ask each other questions and talk about our individual specialities.

First up, we have Rikki - Digital 22’s Founder and Managing Director. He’ll run through what you can do to continue to successfully market during COVID-19, so it’s definitely worth sticking around for that.

It’s going to be a lot more engaging than it was over on Facebook and that starts with getting to know our new members👋 What’s one project or skill you’re currently working on?


Hey everyone, I'm Tom and I'm a Social Media Marketer at D22 👋

Hands up if you've joined us from the IAH Facebook group? 🙋‍♂️ If you have, you'll have heard from me quite a bit lately. 😄

I'm super excited to show you what we have in store for you here 😁 I'm especially looking forward to the open office hours hour sessions; these are going to be packed with value 🙏

Any questions? Don't be afraid to shout up!


Hi all, I never joined the IAH Facebook group as I prefer to keep Facebook non-work related if I can so I am delighted that this has moved to Keyy! I am the Head of Brand Marketing for an IT startup and also doing some consulting for a supply chain consultancy startup that is launching in 2021. I am looking forward to learning and sharing with the group.


Hey @claire-bradley good shout on the Facebook thing... I have the opposite problem though - family members disgruntled at me not accepting friend requests 🤣

Glad to be here on Keyy though as it's one more reason not to have to login on Facebook!


@claire-bradley I had the same challenge with Facebook as I'm delighted to be here now

The last week before Christmas... HubSpot recently brought out a new feature that lets you pause workflows. You're now able to stagger your fantastic nurturing emails until after the flurry of the Christmas break.

Now, no value gets left behind or lost in the depths of an inbox. You can define specific days of the year when you simply don't want workflows to execute (who's going to be checking their emails on Christmas day?).

Do you think you'll try this feature over the break? 🤔


Thats a great update, perfect for holidays and big industry events etc 👏

Welcome back after the break folks.👋Although the Christmas period is certainly meant for relaxing, I'm wondering if anybody learned anything new during that time? Whether you came across an intriguing article on your daily LinkedIn scroll or your favourite tool released an update, I'd be interested to know.

For me, I did the GDD HubSpot certification over the break. It was one I was missing and will be invaluable to upcoming projects!

Comment below anything new you've learned 👇


Hey Mol - welcome back to you too...

Well done on the GDD cert, it's a beast that one. Ace though.

I've just put a post in #inboundlearning about this book I got as a gift which is a very good read for establishing some advertising copy best practices.

Highly recommend it!

Hola! It was definitely long, think the GDD cert is almost 7 hours?!🙃

I'll take a look, I've been meaning to get back into reading and this might just do the trick.

I read Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts by Brene Brown 👌

Halfway through January already. How's everyone's momentum? And how are people finding getting their 2021 vision delivered so far?

If it's going well...what helped you?

Hi All - I run a software company called Claromentis and we have been using Hubspot and inbound for 18 months or so now.

One classic issue I have is understanding how to determine / test an ideal balance between brand awareness through the display network vs the spend on PPC search.

Of course I understand that almost by definition display adds are tough to measure- but do you folks have any thoughts on working this out?

We are a classic B2B software company with a target suite spot of 100 - 2,000 user companies and target geographies.

Sorry if this is not the right channel to post this!




Hey Nigel 👋

Totally understand, that is tough to get the attribution in place. What type of display ads are you running? Is it on the Google Network? Are you displaying services or content?

Let me speak with our PPC team and get some thoughts. If it works for you I'll be on our open office hours next week ( so we can talk some solutions through in person. If not I can post up the thoughts.

Reworking my home office space. Any tips which have made a positive impact on your space?

Opinion: voucher codes websites do not positive for your brand and just take a % off the bottom line at the basket. Right or wrong?

Happy Monday everybody! It's a new month and there's plenty to get stuck in to.

What are you working on this month and what do you imagine will be your biggest challenge?

For me, it's planning an online event for the first time! I'd love to hear what your February entails.


OoOoO online event? that sounds fun @molly - excited to see that take shape.

I always have a number of fun projects underway. Some more notable ones related to this group:

  • Final QA of the Keyy mobile and desktop app + finalizing a roll-out campaign.
  • Improving the Keyy <> HubSpot integration + some new onboarding and engagement workflows based on the new sync'ed properties.
  • Continuing to refine our Education Business Blueprint with the team and continue putting it into practice.

A lot more in the works too. #GoGoGo

Has anybody considered leveraging gifs for their branding?

I've recently started adding fun little snippets from our vlogs and culture to our Giphy account. Getting verified was pretty straight forward and it's easy enough to create gifs and stickers.

From just 10 uploads, we've had 7.7k views. I'll admit, I never anticipated to get more than 100 but it goes to show how engaging they can be.

Are you an avid gif user or prefer the simplicity of an emoji? 😁 Comment below I'd love to know.
