Call Extensions via Google

January 17, 2017 By DevHub - 0 Comments

Another day another change with Google. Now if you are managing 1 website/ 1 location/ 1 of anything these changes are fairly simple. But, if your managing 10s, 100s, 1000s these changes from Google become daunting. 

Starting January 19th, Google AdWords will show a business location and calls will be directed to the phone number associated with that business location - even if a different phone number is used in your call extension.

More information on Google Call Extensions

This should serve as a reminder for people that Google is making changes more quickly and managing these at scale is easy with DevHub.

Site Refresh

DevHub
Explaining what DevHub is good at - is easy; once we know the use case. The idea that one platform (beginning with experience: sites) is flexible enough to handle additional layers of marketing technologies is becoming the standard. At DevHub we work hard everyday for our customers. As a manager you are not only licensing DevHub you are inheriting a team that is as passionate about your project execution/ success as you are.

The other day we had an Amazon product manager through our offices. We explained and showed all the use cases we have solved for, besides being wildly impressed we asked, “How would you explain what we do simply?” the response: one-to-many or many-to-one. Today we refreshed the DevHub.com home page.

Not for everyone, just the CEO of Product

January 16, 2017 By DevHub - 0 Comments

I recently Googled “Product Manager,” and saw as part of the definition ‘CEO of product,’ - that sounded exactly right to me. Companies have long known that product managers drive much of the strategy for product development, servicing and sourcing. But in performance marketing companies the role of the PM is changing rapidly to include more responsibility including building, maintaining and executing on overall company strategy.

Some say that this increase in responsibility also influences the PM’s decision making process. And with ever increasing deadlines - the go to platform for experience is DevHub.

The Power of Web Experience, First. Then Best of Breed Martech

January 12, 2017 By DevHub - 0 Comments

Most web platforms build robust feature sets thinking that the more the better. That approach is often used to sell - HARD. You have heard it - it sounds something like - “we have this feature and this feature and this is how you create A, B, C, D, E...etc.” Firstly, if your web platform provider is the end all be all - RUN! They should focus on their core strength and then recommend best of breed partners to execute on your use case.

“Everyone wants to build the golden submarine but in the end that sinks, shares Mark Michael DevHub CEO/ co-Founder. What companies evaluating web platforms should be asking is what problem do I want solved now and how do I take that to market tomorrow - FAST.”

Since 2008 APIs and the rise of ‘App Stores/ Marketplaces/ Exchanges’ fueled collaboration between tech solutions and related providers (see: Salesforce Apps etc).

In a recent client win, the multi location brand is looking to create a targeted product marketing campaign aimed at several local markets. They chose DevHub - first for creating the 100s of unique marketing landing pages then for the flexibility of integrating marketing automation software (we have vetted 3 so far).

Why as a web platform should we also have A, B, C, D, E when whole companies are built on providing the best at A, B, C, D or E. At DevHub we are best at web experience period. If you want to build 1 of anything go elsewhere (we can recommend where) - but if you want to roll out 10, 15, 100, 1500, 10,000 sites/ landing pages in whatever form - we have you covered - and our vetted integrations will help you too.

PRESS RELEASE: Scaling SSL via Web Platforms

January 11, 2017 By DevHub - 0 Comments

Deploying SSL DevHub
When the need to roll out SSL certificates across sites/ landing pages needed to be automated, DevHub solved this - years ago! 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. SSL technology has been around since 1994 - in response to concern over internet security. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. 

Adhering to web standards at scale is where web platforms can differ greatly. The real opportunities are for those (platforms) that can quickly and efficiently update websites/ landing pages (web experience) or quickly take advantage of new guidelines to press competitive advantages and leverage first mover lift.

There are many use cases of deploying SSL at scale including performance marketing companies aiming to increase workflow/ production efficiencies. Within DevHub - new domains registered can be auto provisioned with new SSL certificates, and the corresponding Site and/or Landing Page are live and serving secure pages within minutes.

Daniel Rust DevHub CTO/ co-Founder explains, "With one company - in 20 minutes we saw 20 new domains registered, new SSL certificates were auto-generated, and the Sites were live and serving secure pages within minutes. There is no reason with technologies like DevHub around not to use SSL everywhere at scale"

Life for Product Managers

Life for product managers is getting easier, thanks to DevHub. Managers who are tasked with leveraging co-op dollars w/ presence for brands are using DevHub to deploy landing pages at the local level. Before DevHub, managers had to scope long dev cycles or create bespoke solutions out of legacy web platforms. Today 90% of managers are under strict deadlines and timelines typically for only just a pilot phase of a deployment. They demand a platform that can rapidly prototype on the fly and deliver results FAST. The more DevHub learns about managers’ use cases the more the platform adapts - making product managers better at delivering on-time, within budget for everyone, everywhere.
