In recent years, every person from online marketing will certainly not have been able to avoid the topics of inbound marketing, marketing automation, and lead nurturing. Anyone who has subsequently dealt with the profitable implementation of these thematic focal points in their own corporate environment will have repeatedly come across HubSpot’s software solution. HubSpot positions itself as an “all-in-one solution” in this context around the topics mentioned above.
NetSuite Software is an online service that enables companies to manage all key business processes in a single system. In this article, we want to find out and explain how to bring these two powerful tools together. Hubspot and NetSuite integration is an important topic if you really want to get the most out of your online marketing.
Before the question of what HubSpot actually is can be answered, the marketing method “inbound marketing” with which HubSpot is closely linked must first be defined in more detail. Basically, inbound marketing should help companies to accompany potential customers with valuable content along the customer journey. The potential customer should be so convinced of the product or service that he executes the transaction. According to the HubSpot definition, the inbound marketing process can be divided into five phases.
In order for the inbound marketing process to successfully map the customer journey of a potential customer, the processes from the three company areas of marketing, sales and service must be linked and coordinated. This is where HubSpot’s clear USP becomes visible because HubSpot masters the challenge of linking the three divisions in a single system. The other advantages HubSpot offers are explained in the next section.

Another advantage: HubSpot is also suitable for non-programmers. So you don’t have to hope that a team member has extensive IT knowledge to be able to use the software.

The heart of HubSpot is the CRM system, which houses a large amount of contact and company information, supports activity and touchpoint tracking, and acts as a link between the three areas of marketing, sales, and service.
In order to be able to map these three company areas in a single system, HubSpot consists of the three system components HubSpot Marketing, HubSpot Sales, and HubSpot Service in addition to the CRM. In addition, HubSpot provides the tools via its own CMS hub to create your own powerful and optimized website.
While HubSpot’s CRM system is basically free of charge, the three hubs – depending on the number of employees, size of the contact and company data records, and the required range of functions – can be selected from the three variants Starter, Professional, and Enterprise. With the CMS Hub, you can choose between a professional and an enterprise version, which differ in terms of functionality.
Basically, the term “Customer Relationship Management” (short: CRM) stands for customer relationship management. The aim is to place a direct relationship with different stakeholders (e.g. (potential) customers, suppliers, colleagues, etc.) at the forefront of the organization and at the same time to encourage interaction with them. CRM systems (such as HubSpot) are used for these defined goals, with which e.g. customer loyalty is strengthened, sales processes are mapped and optimized and the company’s own profitability is increased.
The contact or company interface in HubSpot collects all the important information about a contact or company so that all information can be tracked. In addition to basic information about a contact or company on the left and information about an associated company, possible deal or existing ticket on the right, the current interactions (messages, phone calls, notes, etc.) are displayed in the middle of the image section.
With a variety of different inbound marketing tools, the Marketing Hub supports you in generating traffic and leads for your company. These tools help to completely map an entire inbound marketing campaign – from traffic generation to lead capture and lead nurturing:
Not only can your own sales process be mapped quickly and easily in HubSpot, but HubSpot also acts as the central controller of the deal pipeline. Not only can new deals be created in the HubSpot Sales Hub user interface, but they can also be moved along the deal and lifecycle phases.
With this representation, no sales employee loses sight of what is important, the potential customer. In addition, repetitive tasks (e.g. deal assignments, follow-up, notifications) can be automated via automated workflows. Custom dashboards and reports can be created to track the success of the sales process.
As already described in the CRM section, the HubSpot CRM helps the sales team to clearly present all the detailed information about a prospect and to use this information for sales acquisition.
For example, HubSpot can let you know if an important prospect just visited your pricing page or if a sent email was opened by the customer. As soon as this case (defined by you) occurs, e.g. For example, an e-mail can be sent automatically to the potential customer or a sales employee can be notified by HubSpot so that they pick up the phone themselves.
All activities and the lead’s reactions can be tracked in the CRM. With the meeting tool, HubSpot also offers the option of letting the potential customer select a sales employee’s available appointments and book them directly. For the phone call, saved guidelines can be stored in HubSpot during the sales pitch. After the conversation, offers can be created directly in HubSpot, which can be signed by the customer with an electronic signature.
However, once a lead has been developed into a customer, that customer’s journey is not over in HubSpot. Because the platform offers other important tools to stay in contact with the customer and to develop them into a supporter of your company with high-quality service.
All user questions asked by customers from different sources (e.g. Facebook Messenger, email, live chat on the website) are collected in a central area in HubSpot and can be coordinated there. These questions can either be answered there or, in more difficult cases, forwarded to the appropriate employees. It is also possible to create a ticket for each specific customer request.
But not only your own service team can help your customer, the customer can also help themselves with HubSpot’s knowledge database. Important questions for the customer should be answered there. can also refer to their own service team when answering the question.
In addition to the marketing, sales, and service hubs, HubSpot provides you with its own CMS, which you can use for your website. But using HubSpot’s own CMS not only results in advantages for online marketers, but also for developers. Online marketers will enjoy the simple creation and management of individual pages that can be personalized with smart content for different user groups and used for specific target groups. In addition, a large number of existing resources and ideas from the developer community can be used.
