Shot 3: Opinion of the Week
The “morality” of popups
Finding the balance between generating leads and giving the user a great experience.
Consider less intrusive options:
Side reveal – less intrusive
Solve for the problem.
Is lead gen growth really your problem? e.g. is an engaged audience more valuable to you.
Love how Marco Arment approaches everything to do with app design and usability
e.g. it never pops up with annoying requests to ask you to rate the app (see the Feedback section below):

Shot 6: HubSpot Resource of the Week
Easily Add an Image Gallery to Your Landing Pages or Website
When you’re working on creating content, figuring out how to insert a gallery of images should not be the most time-consuming part of your day. Today we’re happy to introduce a brand-new module available in all HubSpot accounts, the Image Gallery.
The new image gallery has a number of enhancements, but one of the most notable is that it features progressive loading. When adding multiple images to your gallery, don’t want them to load all at once for visitors. It’s bad for their load times, and does not provide a great experience unless they are on a really fast internet connection. The new module will load the first image and progressively load other images based on the visitor clicking through each.
