Keeping your data clean in your CRM is what you need in order to analyze trends correctly, organize campaigns, and grow. To develop growth strategies successfully you need the cleanest most relevant data you can get. HubSpot is great for helping you acquire data, but it still takes someone with experience in data management to do a full CRM data clean up and help you figure out what helps, and what is irrelevant.
What Even Is "Clean" Data?
It’s pretty easy to see that if you have incorrect, misleading, or corrupted data, you won’t be able to base good decisions off it. That’s why you have to keep your data “clean.” Data cleaning refers to the process of getting rid of wrong, corrupted, duplicated, and incomplete information right out of a given data set.
If you’ve heard of data transformation, it’s not quite the same thing. Data cleaning is what it sounds like: getting rid of all data that is not contributing to your success. Data transformation, on the other hand, refers to the process of converting your data into a different format or set than you currently have it in.
CRMs are designed to collect data, but what you do with that information is up to you. That’s why, no matter what CRM you use (and we recommend you use the HubSpot CRM) it’s still important to have someone who regularly performs data cleanup. It’s like washing your dishes, if you don’t do it, the job piles up and gets worse over time.
