Shot 2: HubSpot Marketing Feature of the Week
New analytics engine:
Starts rolling out in June, should be reflected in reports by end of July.
Main point: adding a 30-minute timeout to sessions ie much more like Google Analytics:
“Let’s say a contact visited your site on a Friday afternoon, then left that tab open on his desktop over the weekend, came back to the site on Monday, and explored a separate product line. The “old” engine — without the concept of a 30-minute timeout — would see this as a single visit. With that in mind, the “Time of Last Visit” property would show Friday afternoon. With the new engine, the properties would more accurately reflect the visitor’s activity. “Number of Visits” would be two (since the visitor did, in fact, come to the site on two separate occasions) and “Time of Last Visit” would show Monday.”

As marketers we have a responsibility to be industry leaders, protecting those who are unknowingly exposed.
