MAIN FUNCTIONS & SERVICES
Let’s take a look at the main functions and services provided by HubSpot subscriptions. Keep in mind that HubSpot offers a variety of different subscription packages and bundles, so the extent of these functions can vary depending on a subscriber’s wants and needs.

HubSpot provides its own web design resources that anyone can navigate without IT support or a professional web designer. This allows users to layout and implements design changes at the click of a button, with no need for any coding.
HubSpot also provides reporting once your website is live. This includes a “grade” for each web page and insights on how to improve your website’s viewership and search engine reach.
ESTABLISH CTA'S & LANDING PAGES
CTAs or “calls-to-action” are an important approach for any business to reel in potential leads. HubSpot allows you to insert CTA buttons onto web pages, emails, newsletters, and more to channel any visitor traffic into quantifiable customer leads.
CTAs go hand in hand with landing pages that are quick and easy to create yet highly customizable. On HubSpot, CTAs and landing pages can be customized to specific user experiences to maximize the potential to grab customer attention.
Blogs can play a huge role in inbound marketing strategies by providing a place for keywords and phrases to reside on your website. HubSpot not only provides a blog platform but analytics and guidance on how to make your blogs as successful as possible.
MAXIMIZE KEYWORDS & SEO
HubSpot’s advanced SEO analytics allow you to continuously improve and maximize your keywords to reach your target audience. Automated SEO advice shows up as you’re working on the page, and later data can show you how your SEO ranks against competing businesses.
PUSH & ORGANIZE AD CAMPAIGNS

CREATE AND SEND EMAIL CAMPAIGNS
Email campaigns are easy to design and easy to send out with HubSpot. Customize your recipient's lists and quickly create professional-looking email formats that can reach exactly who they need to with little effort.

IS HUBSPOT RIGHT FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
