Lisa Kirschner Talks Hubspot in Website Magazine

Posted by Lisa Kirschner

Oct 1, 2014 1:09:00 PM

Web_Site_Magazine_September_2014Have you heard a lot about Hubspot's content optimization system (COS) and you're wondering how it stacks up against other CMS tools?

Website Magazine asked me and nine other marketing experts to talk about what CMS tools we use and how those tools have helped us get better results from our online marketing efforts or our clients' online marketing efforts.

After the other marketers talk about how they're getting...well...predictable results from well-known tools such as Wordpress and Joomla, I close out the article with information about how Hubspot absolutely crushes these other tools.

EXCERPT: Customizing SharePoint: Start with the Solution or the Business Problem?

Posted by Lisa Kirschner

Before you begin adding customization tools to SharePoint to create a solution for your business, you must understand your company’s business problem. In this article, I cover a few important areas you need to address before you look at technology...

Hear, hear! I couldn't have said it better myself!

In this CMS Wire article, author Jennifer Mason is really just providing a gentle reminder that "You have to know where you're going in order to figure out how you're going to get there" or "Don't put the cart before the horse."

This is a problem that I see businesses struggling with all the time. I've had dozens and dozens of conversations with clients who really want to select a technology language or tool before they've really determined what they're trying to do.

Study this article carefully if you're planning to customize SharePoint or any CMS. You'll save yourself lots of time and frustration, and your end result will be better because you've taken the time to think through your business goals carefully.
