SAN JOSE, CA – November 9, 2021 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today launched the integration of HubSpot, a leading CRM and omnichannel marketing platform for growing companies, with Calix Marketing Cloud (Marketing Cloud). The latest of several integrations with leading marketing platforms used by broadband service providers (BSPs), the combination of HubSpot and Marketing Cloud makes it easier than ever for BSP marketers to plan, create, and execute high-impact omnichannel marketing campaigns. With Marketing Cloud and HubSpot, any BSP can leverage advanced, real-time behavioral insights and automated marketing processes to seamlessly deliver the right message to the right subscribers at the right time. The integration enables BSPs to market smarter, stretch their marketing investments farther, grow their business, and measure ROI.
This enhancement to the Revenue EDGE platform builds upon the robust capabilities of Marketing Cloud, which already features integrations with Mailchimp and Facebook. With the powerful combination of Marketing Cloud and HubSpot, BSP marketers will be able to more easily:
- Segment and target subscribers. Marketing Cloud allows BSPs to segment their subscriber base to create targeted messaging and communications that resonate better and drive higher engagement. Marketers can leverage an ever-growing list of out-of-the-box “recommended segments” to easily identify subscribers that are targets for upsell, cross-sell, or retention. Using machine learning, Marketing Cloud continually refines segments and can build new audiences as new trends emerge. These rich capabilities will make it easier for BSPs using HubSpot to proactively test messages among different audiences to create the highest-performing campaigns possible.
- Build and execute omnichannel marketing campaigns. HubSpot is an all-in-one CRM platform optimized for inbound marketing. Marketers using its email automation platform together with Marketing Cloud can now automate and deploy highly focused campaigns to audience segments based on specific events and behaviors. These capabilities will eventually expand to include data from other facets of the HubSpot platform, such as landing pages, social, digital ads, and nurture campaigns. In this latest release, Marketing Cloud is further enhancing marketers’ ability to deliver omnichannel marketing campaigns with the new preview screen for mobile notifications in the CommandIQ® app. This enhancement helps BSPs strengthen their content and messaging strategy by ensuring that mobile notifications are always on-brand and improve their perception among subscribers.
