What are customers saying?

HubSpot is named the #1 Best Product for Marketers in G2 Crowd Best Software Awards in 2020 and 2019.

  • The biggest thing that's different with HubSpot is that it eliminates the obstacle to getting our marketing done. With marketing software that we used in the past, we would try to create a campaign or develop lead scoring, but the barrier to execution was too high. It just seemed overly complex or we would have needed to hire a consultant. We would never end up getting it done. When we switched to HubSpot, those obstacles were removed. We now can do things quickly and efficiently.

  • Eloqua was supposed to be marketing automation but it felt like a bad email tool. For example: there were no templates available and if you wanted to edit emails you had to work with long strings of HTML code that appeared in one single line.

  • While most marketing automation tools have reached a certain level of parity when it comes to standard features (lead records, social, email marketing, landing pages, etc.) not every company excels in training, best practices, and support. Of all of the tools I've used (Eloqua, Marketo, HubSpot), HubSpot clearly focuses on usability and customer retention. It's tailor-made for orgs that want fast ramp-up and ROI and does a fantastic job of making sure that multiple resources exist for whatever question you might have.
  • There are many vendors and products out there, some are very robust, complicated and expensive, typically aimed at large enterprises such as Marketo. These require numerous resources to implement and utilize. However, if you are a ~$500M company with a small marketing department, HubSpot could be the perfect fit for your needs. They have excellent onboarding and customer support. And their sales agents are very thorough and look out for you immediate needs and future growth needs.

HubSpot is trusted by over 121,000 businesses in more than 120 countries.
