Introducing the HubSpot CRM System for Small Businesses
This past September I attended Inbound 2014 HubSpot’s inbound marketing conference held in Boston for Inbound Marketers since 2011. The success of Inbound is another story for another post but I mention it here because company CEO Brian Halligan used this event with over 10,000 in attendance to introduce the company’s new CRM system to the public.
HubSpot’s CRM System – Who is it Designed For?
The HubSpot CRM is a lighter-weight system with features designed to enhance the power of the HubSpot platform. While other CRM platforms incorporate dozens of tools and complicated features that need to be learned and customized, the HubSpot CRM is designed to get your sales team onboard quickly without changing your selling process.
If your sales reps are already Salesforce power users, than the HubSpot CRM is not designed for you – as the depth and range of features found in platforms like Salesforce are not in HubSpot’s CRM. But if your company is under-utilizing your current CRM platform or in the market to try one out – this tool is worth your further investigation.
And the CRM offers another reason for your company to consider using HubSpot Marketing Software… the CRM is a free, add-on component for HubSpot Marketing Software users.
What Makes the HubSpot CRM Different?
It takes minutes to learn, not months:
HubSpot CRM adapts to your process, not the other way around. Your team will get started quickly and stay focused on selling, not learning a new tool.
It’s always working behind the scenes:
Say goodbye to the days of logging emails & calls. HubSpot CRM works in the background with the tools you already use. It’s there when you need it, and out of the way when you don’t.
It’s in sync with today’s sales process:
HubSpot CRM is connected to the dozens of places where the modern sales process takes place – on your website, in email, on phone calls, across social media, and more.
