Today we decided to focus on one of the biggest players in the field, HubSpot. Below we’ve written a detailed review on this platform. Keep reading to find out if HubSpot might be right for your business.

What is a CRM platform?

Before we talk about HubSpot, it’s best to make sure everyone is on the same page. A CRM platform is an online system that allows you to manage your marketing campaigns, lead generation, sales cycles, automate funnels and customer journeys and connect between different departments. To further explain how these platforms help connect different teams together, take for example your marketing team, which runs campaigns to bring in leads. Once these leads get qualified using funnels or other methods, the relevant users get passed on to the sales team. This flow of work can increase ROI and customer lifetime values.

What is HubSpot?

HubSpot is a leading CRM platform provider that was originally founded in the United States in 2006. Over the years HubSpot has grown to become a leader in the industry, offering leading edge technology. The company now offers a full set of tools and features to fully automate your business. HubSpot’s main services can be broken down into 4 categories. Each one focusing on a different aspect of a business.

Marketing Hub 

The Marketing Hub is where you’ll most likely begin your journey. This section of HubSpot focuses on all your different activities and communication channels. You can set up your PPC campaigns and launch your Facebook campaigns all while tracking your stats in one place. Marketing Hub allows for integration with other platforms so you can run all your marketing activity from the same platform.

Here is where you’ll be able to:

Sales Hub

As the name implies, the Sales Hub is where you will manage all your sales activities with the intent to seal the deal. This is where your sales team can login to and keep track of the leads and customers in all the various sales cycle stages. What’s more, is that Sales Hub can connect with Marketing Hub allowing these 2 departments to work cohesively as one well-oiled machine. The more information your sales teams have on potential leads the easier it is to convert them.

Service Hub

This section of HubSpot focuses on managing all your customer service tools and software. If you thought your job was over once a sale was made, then you’d be completely wrong. The mark of any great company is shown by how they listen to customers and are able to assist with any issues they may have. In fact, many paying customers will refuse to make additional purchases from companies that they have experienced bad customer service from in the past. Being on top of customer complaints or concerns can help extend your customers’ lifetime value.

CMS or Content Management Systems are essential for managing your website, blogs, FB posts, landing pages and anywhere else you add new content to on an ongoing basis. HubSpot’s CMS allows you to connect different assets such as your website, blog posts, FB posts and more in one centralized place. Instead of needing to log in to different systems or do everything manually HubSpot CMS can do it all in one place. Save time by scheduling your FB posts and blogs in advance. In fact, you can plan for weeks or months ahead. This can free up your time for other important tasks you’ll need to focus on.

Ultimately it will be up to you to decide if HubSpot will meet the needs of your business. By asking yourself the right questions, you can better understand if HubSpot is a good fit. Questions like what is my budget, how much activity I am planning to start with, and do I need all these features? One last thing to consider is scaling up.
