Tracking B2C activity

Hello. We're using the CRM to track our deals and contacts. We are a coaching service and when a deal is closed we would like to use HS to track the individual employees being coached within that business (deal). What would be the best way to go about tracking the coaching clients (individuals/or contacts) within that business - or Company?

Correct, @AMoore7. Seems a bit redundant, but you want both the contact record and the ticket record (for the coaching of said contact). Cheers!

Hey @AMoore7,

 

I see two options here, the main one being the ticket object. (There aren't many other left, anyway... 😉 )

 

Tickets can be associated with deals so the relationship between deal and coaching would be immediately clear. I would create a ticket for each coaching (which could in turn be associated with the corresponding contact). Tickets are a status/stage based object, which would probably fit the coaching quite nicely, if there is a kick-off, main work, conclusion etc. Using a standard object also gives you a lot of out-of-the-box reports.

 

Using contact-based workflows, you could even automatically create the coaching tickets for each contact when a deal is closed.

 

If you're already using tickets for actual customer service, I'd recommend creating a separate pipeline for fulfillment/coaching.

 

The second option would be a custom object specifically for a coaching. Custom objects are however only available in the Enterprise subscriptions of HubSpot. I don't see any benefits compared to using the ticket object here. Still, I wanted to mention this since it is a viable option when there are a lot of requirements that the ticket object can't meet.

 

Hope this helps!

Karsten,

I just finished reading your answer to a similar question and I think this would work for my situation as well. Just to clarify....

 

Would I still be creating individual 'contact's under the company record for each coaching client within that company? And THEN associating a ticket to distinguish between a coaching client and the point of contact in closing the deal?
