I hear the terms guerrilla marketing and social marketing a lot. Very few people are specific with what this is and how it works.

It's taken me a long time to "get it" and I'm still learning a lot on this area. Hubspot not only make a great platform for helping Inbound Marketing but  they also practice what they preach and do a damn fine job at it. 

If you followed this article from start to finish you will almost certainly improve the profitability of your business.
