We had the pleasure of attending and speaking at INBOUND18, inbound marketing’s signature annual conference put on by Hubspot. This year’s event featured speakers from across the marketing spectrum. Let’s take a quick walk through some of what the audience thought were the key points, based on social audience engagement.

  • Deepak Chopra: “Human beings would rather be criticized than ignored.” – 190 engagements, shared by INBOUND
  • Shonda Rhimes: “What’s the point of being a woman in power if you can’t help women be in power?” – 182 engagements, shared by INBOUND
  • Beth Comstock: “Focus 70% on what’s NOW, 20% on what’s NEXT, And 10% on what’s NEW. What’s your 10%?” – 148 engagements, shared by Christine Gritmon
  • Dharmesh Shah: “Own your screw ups. We all make mistakes. Just say sorry, be sorry, and make it better.” – 133 engagements, shared by INBOUND
  • Brent Chudoba: “If the first thing you’re doing in the morning is checking your inbox, that’s probably not a good idea. That’s letting other people prioritize your day.” – 125 engagements, shared by INBOUND
  • Scott Harrison: “Why shouldn’t charities have epic, inspiring brands? Why shouldn’t we care about the way we create and the excellence of that work?” – 118 engagements, shared by INBOUND
  • Anjali Sud: “What I’ve learned is that, particularly in today’s world, effective marketing requires equal right brain and left brain thinking. It requires empathy, it requires you to move people.” – 109 engagements, shared by INBOUND
