Why choose HubSpot over Mailchimp?

HubSpot is so much more than a Mailchimp alternative.

It is an advanced marketing automation platform that goes beyond email to help your company meet its marketing, sales, and service goals. From advanced workflows that make your job easier to customized websites and closed loop reports, you’ll find HubSpot to be a powerful automation platform for your marketing needs.

“HubSpot has everything in a single location, and the reporting component makes a huge difference. The integration of digital activities in one place is so convenient to have. HubSpot’s training is also really useful, giving entry-level users a more in-depth understanding of how the product works. You can even apply employee goals to training, and at the end of the day, you are going to have a more educated workforce.”
