Manually adding contacts (original source?)
Our China operations have a different marketing platform. We would like to add these contacts manually to HubSpot because all our emails will be sent from there (including Chinese). Also then our HubSpot CRM integration will trigger MQLs to Microsoft Dynamics, and we would get the information back from Sales. And reporting would also show the conversion rates from lead to MQL and SQL and our management could look at the KPIs from one place.
Question - is there harm if we choose the accordingly original source (for example Organic Search when we now the contact is from a Chinese search engine) versus choosing it's an Offline source? Does it affect negatively our organic data and reporting, that comes from HubSpot itself? For example, we have connected all our ad accounts to HS.
Accordingly to our Chinese marketing partner, the integration from that platform to HubSpot isn't possible to do.
