We all know HubSpot is an awesome tool. It’s a CRM, a website builder, a content management tool, and email marketing platform all rolled into one. And it has even more functions on top of that.
So even though HubSpot can be really effective for your sales, marketing, and customer service efforts, it can also be tricky to master because it has so many capabilities. Sure, you can pay for HubSpot’s onboarding process so you can get it up and running, but that can be pricey.
What you need is help from HubSpot experts. Here we’re going to talk about hiring someone to set up HubSpot for your business. We’re talking about HubSpot Certified Partners: agencies that are authorized to sell and manage customers who are using HubSpot
If you want to make the most out of HubSpot, you need some help from the experts.
Should You Hire a HubSpot Expert to Help Your Company?
If it’s your first time using HubSpot or any CRM, then you should work with a HubSpot expert to help you get started. But if you have experience with any other CRM and you’re switching to HubSpot, you may find it a lot easier to use compared to other CRM platforms out there. Even then, a HubSpot Certified Partner can help you master the platform.
A HubSpot partner is an agency that works closely with HubSpot to sell, maintain, and guide users of the CRM. They received this authorization after taking different certification courses from HubSpot Academy. These digital marketing agencies, including Kennected, have received additional training in sales, marketing, customer service, and managing accounts using HubSpot.
HubSpot partners also have additional tools to help them serve other HubSpot users effectively. They have passed HubSpot’s standards. They can help you use the HubSpot platform to generate leads, increase your revenue, and achieve your business goals.
Though the standard onboarding process from HubSpot can be a bit pricey, HubSpot partners can teach you how to use the platform effectively at a much lower rate.
How Long Does it Take to Set up HubSpot on Your Own?
Using HubSpot is easy because of its intuitive layout. But learning how to use all of its functions and features to their full potential is not a walk in the park.
How long it takes for you to set up HubSpot depends on your business size, the members of your team, and other factors. First and foremost, you need to identify your business goals and needs so you know what exactly you need out of HubSpot.
It can take a few months, especially if you’re doing it on your own. So we recommend working with people who have experience in using HubSpot.
Can Hiring Someone to Help You with HubSpot Save You Money?
For starters, you will be saving a significant amount of money just from avoiding the expensive onboarding process of HubSpot. But hiring someone to help you with HubSpot can actually help you save money in other ways.
The fact that you have someone leading the way means there’s no need for trial and error. You don’t have to try all the different bundles and packages offered by HubSpot because you can pick the right one for your business right away.
It also helps you save your most valuable resource: time. You don’t have to waste time learning every single thing, which means you can put more focus and energy on the activities that make you money.
Using HubSpot increases your team’s productivity by aligning your different departments and making sure everyone is on the same page. It serves as a centralized space where all your customer and company information are stored. You can also keep tabs on your different marketing efforts to see what’s working and what’s not. Just being on HubSpot saves you a lot of money by streamlining your business.
If you are looking for HubSpot experts to help you set up and master HubSpot, call Kennected. As a HubSpot Certified Partner, Kennected now works with HubSpot more closely than ever. Since we switched to HubSpot, our lives have been a lot less complicated. Our teams have less problems to deal with, and our margins are up.
We know from experience that using HubSpot can save you money. Before we used HubSpot, we were working with a lot of different tools that didn’t really talk to each other, and it gave us a lot of headaches. When we have paid staff that have to take time to integrate more than 5 pieces of technology, there is a real monetary cost to that time. From that standpoint, HubSpot is helping us save big time.
We’re saving time, which means our team is being more productive than ever, which means an increase in revenue for the entire Kennected organization.
And because we can onboard more customers in less time, we’re actually MAKING more money.
Now we’re running ALL of our prospects into HubSpot. Using this CRM, our sales team is able to manage a prospect all the way through the first contact on LinkedIn (or wherever we met them from), and hand them off once they invest into buying the Kennected solution, into our operations team that will onboard them and help them get started.
Now we’re helping other businesses use HubSpot to simplify their lead flow process. HubSpot is core to our mission now.
