TikTok is the app that everyone is talking about, and they've just passed 2 billion downloads. This got the Drift team thinking...could it work in B2B?

2) Product Update: HubSpot app homepage

When you click on your HubSpot icon, it goes to the reporting dashboard. Useful for some but not others.

Now you can customise what you want your homepage to be without affecting other users. If you're a content writer that might be the blog or email tool, if you're in sales it might be deals or tasks, or a service rep can be tickets or inbox.

Head over to the profile & preferences section in your HubSpot account to update.




3) Product Update: Drift Insider courses

Drift has bundled together their most popular classes, lessons and videos to create Drift courses. Taught by top-level industry leaders, you'll be sure to up your marketing and sales game.
