Are you on the fence about making the jump into all things HubSpot? HubSpot is an investment that shouldn't be taken lightly. How much does HubSpot cost? It depends on what you want out of your marketing and sales automation software.

 

Is HubSpot Right for You?

We're big fans of HubSpot here at LAIRE, however, HubSpot isn't for everyone. If you're all-in on inbound marketing and sales, HubSpot is one of the best marketing automation tools out there. Automation streamlines your everyday marketing and sales duties and simplifies analytical reporting.

HubSpot also removes the need for relying on multiple platforms for website management, social media scheduling, email, workflows, and blog hosting. You get all of that and more with HubSpot's deep pool of resources and tools. 

 

HubSpot's Price

The HubSpot platform has a sales side and a marketing side, each with its own set of tools and costs. Keep in mind that you can pay for one, both, or neither of these portals, depending on the features you want. If you’re unsure how HubSpot can bring value to your sales and marketing efforts, HubSpot offers a wealth of resources from blogs to online HubSpot Academy courses designed to help you understand the features and benefits of using the Sales and Marketing hubs. 


The prices we list here are in effect as of August 3, 2021, and may be adjusted by HubSpot at any time. For the most up to date information you may visit the HubSpot Pricing Page.

 

HubSpot Marketing Automation Cost

Free to $3,200/month

As you can tell, the marketing side of HubSpot can be much more expensive, but there is a good reason for that. In the Professional Marketing Hub plan, 2,000 marketing contacts are included at a rate of $800 a month (plus $225 a month for an additional 5,000 contacts), whereas in the Enterprise Marketing Hub plan, 10,000 marketing contacts are included at a rate of $3,200 a month (plus $100 a month for an additional 10,000 contacts). If you don’t have more than 1,000 marketing contacts currently, you can use the Marketing Hub Starter plan which includes 1,000 marketing contacts at a rate of $90 a month (plus $45 a month for an additional 1,000 contacts).

HubSpot Sales Hub Cost

Free to $1,200/month

The sales side of HubSpot may be a smaller investment than the marketing tools, depending on the size of your sales team. In the Professional Sales Hub plan, five users are covered at a rate of $500 a month (plus $100 for each additional user), whereas in the Enterprise Sales Hub plan, 10 users are covered at a rate of $1,200 a month (plus $120 a month for each additional user).

If you don't want to commit to using HubSpot's Sales Hub for your whole team, you can use the Sales Starter plan which includes 2 users for $50 a month (plus $25 for each additional user) and fewer features. It’s important to note that the Starter and Professional plans are cheaper when purchasing annually rather than monthly, something to think about if you’re weighing your options and costs associated.

How to Choose the Right Sales Hub Tier?

At HubSpot, the customer experience is paramount. The Service Hub delivers a help desk with ticketing, allowing you to spend less time on data entry and more time managing your customer relationships. With ticketing, you can create tickets within the help desk, allowing for more critical issues to be prioritized first. The Service Hub is also incredibly valuable in providing a Knowledge Base platform where you can host frequently asked questions, videos, documentation, and articles designed to answer common questions and give information on processes that can ultimately reduce the number of support requests through providing relevant problem-solving information. 

The Live Chat functionality included in the Service Hub allows you to help customers on your website in real-time, directing them to the appropriate resources to solve their issues and answer their questions. Offering this feature on your site creates a stronger relationship with your customers, giving them the confidence that your service teams are in place and ready to help them with their questions and concerns. Through the Service Hub, you gain valuable access to HubSpot’s CRM platform, custom reporting dashboards, and automated customer service capabilities. Every company services its customers differently, so to better understand which tier of the Service Hub would work best for your company, check out the functionalities within each tier here

 

HubSpot CMS Hub Cost

$25 to $1,200/month

Building and managing your website is easier than ever before with HubSpot CMS. As an all-in-one website platform, you can create and manage website pages, landing pages, and even your blog. From building the website to managing the content, HubSpot CMS delivers all of the other great features of HubSpot, creating seamless integrations between Sales, Marketing, Service and Operations Hubs, delighting your website visitors and leads from every angle. The way HubSpot has created their CMS Hub allows for your developers to create functional aspects of your site, that are then easily editable by your marketing teams. Making updates to a website shouldn’t cause you to constantly rely on custom integrations, configurations, and updates from a development team standpoint, and HubSpot has harnessed this ease-of-use understanding within the CMS Hub by creating a functional platform that is, as they say, “a developers dream without being a marketers nightmare”. 

In the Professional CMS Hub plan, you’ll receive all of the free tools with increased limits including additional tools offered by the Professional plan for $400 a month. In the Enterprise CMS Hub plan, you’ll receive everything in the Professional plan, plus additional tools and capabilities for $1,200 a month. If you don’t need all of the capabilities of a Professional or Enterprise CMS Hub plan, HubSpot has recently started offering a Starter CMS Hub plan. With this plan, you’ll pay $25 per month for all CMS Hub free tools and a few extras, such as web application firewall, or WAF. HubSpot currently offers 10% off for the Starter and Professional plan when you commit to an annual plan and pay upfront.

The capabilities of the CMS platform are incredible, but it’s important to keep in mind that you don’t want to be paying for Enterprise level functionality if you do not currently have a development team in place, or the website traffic and granular functionalities that would warrant the various additional capabilities offered through the Enterprise level. If this is your first website build, you would benefit from a Professional plan first, and through the use of the Professional plan, you will see where there may be a need to upgrade to an Enterprise level plan as your business grows and begins to need additional features and functionalities that you may not need in the beginning. 

HubSpot’s CMS Hub provides scalable solutions for your website as your business grows. To gauge your needs and better understand the capabilities of the software, check out the software breakdown for each plan here.
