Hubspot CMS features
The Hubspot CMS is built on top of the Hubspot CRM, meaning you get a unified, single view of your customers. Because of this connection, you can personalise individual experiences and create targeted segments that drive high-performing marketing and sales campaigns.
Give power to your developers and control to your marketers. Starting from scratch or leveraging one of HubSpot’s pre-built themes, the CMS lets your marketers get on with their job without the need for a developer. They can make the changes they need without the need to know coding, html, or CSS. That means less frustration and better, faster results.
Drag and Drop Page Editing
Focus on creating amazing content. With CMS Hub, your developer can create a flexible content creation experience via templates and modules, that allow you to easily create pages through a drag-and-drop editing experience.
Easily create, manage, and optimise a multi-language website. In-language variants of specific pages can be created to manage your content and test what is working best across all the languages you wish to use.
Backed by a market leading CRM
CMS Hub comes with the HubSpot CRM baked in. With it, you’re able to easily keep track of your site visitors’ engagement with your site, and use that information to create tailored messaging. Adjust your messaging based on where in the buyer's journey your prospect is and continue to measure the results so you can refine things quickly.
SEO Optimizations (Pro)
Hubspot provides you with page planning and optimisation then allows you to implement those changes from one spot. It provides Google Search optimisation recomendations and can connect directly to your Google Search Console, ensuring your site is performing at its best.
Personalise the content website visitors see based on customer data that resides in your CRM. Whether it's a different experience based on first vs return visit, geo location, or product interest, Smart content makes it easy for you to provide tailored experiences that help boost engagement, conversions, and revenue.
Password Protected Content
Hubspot CMS allows you to create and restrict premium content via password-restricted pages. Deliver premium content to your loyal customers. You can also consider membership-based offerings that use this method to allow limited access.
Create and update database-driven content easily via HubDB tables or CRM Objects to create dynamic pages. We help you configure your dynamic page templates or modules that allow you to use data to automatically create and populate a set of pages.
Site Tree Tool
The Hubspot site tree allows you to understand the hierarchy and make up of your site. You can filter your pages by options including publish date, update date, and test status. You can also create or edit pages directly from a site tree.
Content Staging is a tool on HubSpot’s CMS which helps make bulk publishing or replacing pages on your website easy. The content is hosted on a sandbox domain, and won’t replace your live content until you’ve reviewed and approved everything.
Create membership based content using HubSpot lists to allow only specific customers to access a section of your website. Use this to create content for specific segments of your customer-base, or manage premium content channels. Each contact gets a personalized password and login.
Add interactive elements to your HubSpot hosted content, like event registrations, guest books, and dynamic calculators, without the need to configure an external server, SSL certificate, or data transfer process.
Use team permissions to give your team access to only the content that is important to them. Allow your blog team to only focus on the blogs that matter to them, while not being distracted by blogs owned by another team, or the landing pages that your acquisition team owns.
Your team is growing fast, and many people across several teams have access to the content on your site. Ensure that you’re able to pinpoint exactly who on your team made a specific update at any given moment with shareable activity logs. Quickly run this export, and gain governance over your site.
Reverse Proxy Configuration
Give your marketing teams the power to create and manage content with CMS Hub’s easy-to-use content editing tools, while continuing to load all content from a single, trusted, domain hosted externally.
If you have multiple business lines, or simply require more than just one domain, we’ve got you covered. Manage and measure all of your website content in one HubSpot account across multiple domains. CMS Hub Enterprise comes with two brand domains out of the box, and additional domains can be purchased as needed.
Adaptive Page Testing
Go beyond simple A/B tests to ensure you are continuously optimizing your website. Choose up to five variations of a page to test against each other. HubSpot will continuously test each version and serve up the most performant option to your website visitors.
Is it hard to migrate to Hubspot CMS? It sounds like hard work!
You don’t have to do a full redesign. We can work with you to move your existing site onto HubSpot, or we
can explore creating a microsite for any number of initiatives you might have right now. HubSpot also has a
migration resource where you can bring your site to HubSpot - often for free.
WordPress is Free. CMS Hub is too expensive.
WordPress is free in the same way that a puppy might be “free.” Although the sticker price might be $0.00,
there are secondary costs like hosting, security, and regular maintenance that can add up quickly. WordPress
websites typically cost upwards of $400/month, including hosting, plugins, security, maintenance, updates and support. This is all included in the Hubspot CMS offering.
“(CMS Hub) also frees up a lot of my time to focus on other aspects of our business. I also no longer have to spend time fighting fires on random technical glitches or issues.” - Ralph Vugts, Digital Director at Engaging.io
How extensive is the Hubspot plugin ecosystem?
CMS Hub has over 650+ Apps and thousands of Assets in its marketplace. The difference to others like Wordpress is that it's like the Apple App Store - Vetted, governed, safe and secure.
75% of the top 100 WordPress plugins come baked into CMS Hub right out of the box and never need to be updated.
While there are 56K WordPress plugins - Some are good, many are bad. This is WordPress’ blessing and curse. If you pick a bad plugin you’re leaving your website, business, and customers at risk. Layering in plugins can open up big security risks, slower website speeds, and compatibility issues.
Need to build a complex, custom solution? CMS Hub includes powerful technical
features for developers to extend the
system, including: 40+ APIs, serverless
functions, custom objects, HubDB, & more!
Can I export my website? I don't want to be locked into a vendor.
HubSpot is working hard to ensure migrating on and off its CMS is smooth. You own and have full control
to export your content, files and data at anytime.
● Marketers - Use the Easy Export Guide to download all of your content and data.
● Developers - Incorporate GitHub in their development workflow to store coded files.
● Developers - Pull data out of HubSpot using the many APIs.
“...there is nothing different from migrating your website off HubSpot vs any other platform. In fact, HubSpot actually makes it easier than most platforms to export your data!” - Melissa Roberge of Inbound Design Partners
David provided great knowledge, support and contacts for us to achieve our desired outcomes. Would highly recommend.
A seamless experience from original concept to going live, Openside Digital were always professional and keen to take on board our specific requirements. I would say Openside Digital has the balance right between offering expertise and listening to the clients' wishes. The end result is an attractive, informative website that achieves the desired image but with other features that go beyond what the layperson would ask for or think of.
Openside has done a fantastic job meeting our needs in a very ambiguous and immature organisation
