Hubspot is one of the leading developers of inbound marketing software and tools that make a huge difference throughout every part of the sales cycle. From attracting new customers to keeping your existing customers happy. Of course, the most well-known tool in their arsenal is the free Hubspot CRM. Other Hubspot tools available include the Marketing Hub, Service Hub, and Sales Hub.
One of the things that set the Hubspot CRM apart is the ease of integration with many other powerful tools. Tools that every great sales professional utilizes (or should be utilizing!). By using a combination of Hubspot and other useful integrations, you create an extremely powerful centralized hub that makes it easier to attract new customers, provide relevant solutions that they are looking for, and keep your customers happy.
Instead of keeping different spreadsheets and utilizing different programs for your sales and marketing teams, Hubspot and its integrations can provide one centralized solution to use across your entire company. It can make almost every part of your day as a sales rep much easier.
A Growing Number Of Integrations
As the business world continues to change and evolve, sales professionals are using more automation and more kinds of software. But an increase in tools is completely ineffective if they can’t work together. That is why during 2018, Hubspot’s goal was to evolve from “an all-in-one suite into an all-on-one platform.”
At this point, there are now over 200 available Hubspot integrations across 17 different task categories including sales automation and calling. 94 new app integrations were added in 2018 to the Hubspot partner ecosystem amounting to a 70% increase. This continues to increase by the day as partner developers continue to add application integrations.
2018 saw the largest increase in app adoptions & connections by Hubspot users than ever before. 85% of users utilize at least one integrated application with Hubspot. The seamlessness of integrations creates a win-win situation all the way around.
Let’s take a look at some of the best integrations to boost your Hubspot CRM as a sales professional:
1. Map My Customers
We may be partial, but as the leading outside sales automation platform, Map My Customers provides a very powerful solution in combination with the Hubspot CRM.
