Who gives away 19,000 rainbow stickers and nearly 3,000 stuffed unicorns? Inbound marketing software company HubSpot does!

unicornsIt seems as though HubSpot never does anything in traditional fashion, so why change now? Decked out in orange, HubSpot will be at Dreamforce to debunk myths about marketing. (That’s where the rainbows and unicorns come in.)

HubSpot co-founders Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah, along with HubSpot’s Social Media Scientist Dan Zarrella and Chief Marketing Officer Mike Volpe, will be spreading the latest and greatest new insight and data about inbound marketing.

Website Grader, a tool HubSpot designed, has run reports for more than 3.7 million websites, grading them on their content and effectiveness as a marketing tool. HubSpot has also built a special iPad app especially for Dreamforce to show attendees how their website stacks up against their competitors’.  Attendees will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with inbound marketing consultants, do a thorough website evaluation, and receive a customized plan outlining the best steps to help their businesses reach inbound marketing glory.

Speakers and panels not your thing? Join HubSpot for a head-to-head battle debunking myths about inbound marketing. You may even walk away with a unicorn!

Or perhaps you want to belt it out after hours? Jump on the RVIP Lounge and be part of HubSpot-sponsored karaoke-on-wheels. Take part in Tuesday night’s karaoke competition and you could win tickets to Metallica’s concert Wednesday night in San Francisco.

For those of you not familiar with HubSpot yet (it’s ok, we forgive you), HubSpot was founded in 2006 by two MIT Sloan students who revolutionized the inbound marketing world.  Ever since, the integrated software company has been leading the industry with more than 5,000 customers in 34 countries.  To put it in perspective, that’s larger than all the other marketing software companies at Dreamforce... combined.

So far in 2011, HubSpot has secured $32 million in funding from Salesforce.com, Google Ventures and Sequoia Capital, as well as acquired two companies - Performable and oneforty - adding innovativemarketing automation andsocial media marketing functionality and growing the App Marketplace for HubSpot customers.

Drop by HubSpot’s space – no, we don’t do booths, either – while at Dreamforce, or contact HubSpot’s media relations specialist, Kara Sassone, at ksassone@hubspot.com for further information or to arrange an interview with a HubSpot executive.

Dreamforce 2011 is the cloud computing event of the year. The ninth annual conference will welcome more than 30,000 customers, partners and developers to the new world of the social enterprise. With more than 450 sessions and 250 cloud companies in the expo, Dreamforce offers the content and educational opportunities that enable attendees to tap into the power of the social enterprise.
