Why Not Just Use the Free HubSpot for Marketing?

Q: Why Not Just Use the Free Version of HubSpot Marketing?

A: The free version of HubSpot is an excellent way to get to know HubSpot and learn a little bit about the demographics of your clients. If you’re a one-person show, free HubSpot is a great place to get started with tracking some stats about your inbound marketing efforts. HubSpot can be a bit overwhelming. It's a large, complex, and powerful system. It’s easier to learn if you start small.  

But, if you’re starting, or ready, to scale up, you may want to consider upgrading your HubSpot membership. If you need to sell your product now, and don’t have time for sales, now is the time to upgrade. The data and analytics will help you reach your goal. Also a further upgrade can incorporate your marketing, sales, and customer service all in one place. It is such a powerful tool if you commit to unlocking all the incredible features it offers.

“I wouldn't run Tangible Words without HubSpot ever again, they not only save me time as a busy consultant but our company has seen an 80% increase in revenue. 57% of the sales process is over in the awareness stage alone. Without HubSpot we would lose that many sales.” - Alysha Dominico

How Should I Upgrade?

image3-5-2If you want to learn HubSpot without being totally overwhelmed, it's probably best to upgrade one stage at a time, and scale your subscription as you scale your business. 

If you’re really brave you can jump in headfirst with the final plan you think you’ll need for your business goals. 

If you’re not sure what to choose, but you know you need a CRM to scale fast, you can hire a HubSpot partner, like Tangible Words. We can help you understand HubSpot.
