If there was an event that promised you that you would: come together, get inspired, and be remarkable, wouldn’t you want to go? I sure would! And that’s exactly what Inbound 2014, a marketing conference put on by HubSpot in Boston, promises to do. But alas, I will have to settle on living vicariously through my bosses who are representing Half a Bubble Out. Instead, we’re here at The Bubble bringing you the latest tweets, Facebook posts, and blogs about what Mr. & Mrs. Redman are learning about at Inbound.
Last year was nothing short of amazing, and in our inbound marketing world, we’re anxious to learn the new trends and techniques that will help us help YOU grow your business. We’ll be posting about them as they roll out, but we are sworn to secrecy until the unveiling. What we can tell you about right now are the awesome speakers that will be presenting this week at Inbound 2014.
