HubSpot CMS HUB: A Powerful, Secure, & Affordable Solution for Marketers
As a marketer, you understand the significance of having an efficient and scalable digital platform for your online presence. You've likely heard of WordPress and Drupal, but today, I want to introduce you to our favorite: HubSpot CMS.
We've used every CMS under the sun, including our own custom-developed CMS (RIP ☠️) before the days of WordPress, and the one that has stood the test of time for developers and marketers alike has been HubSpot CMS Hub.
Let me explain why...
1. Ease of Use: No Technical Degree Required!
One of the standout benefits of HubSpot CMS is its ease of use. Unlike WordPress or Drupal, where you have a messy web of plugins and complicated interfaces, HubSpot's CMS is intuitive and streamlined.
But what if you're not a developer? No worries! The drag-and-drop functionality allows you to design and modify pages on the fly without touching a single line of code. Creating and updating content becomes an enjoyable process rather than a chore.
2. HubSpot CMS Pricing: No Banks Broken
HubSpot has a price point that works for any business! Start-up to enterprise.
All of these prices include website hosting, which we feel is the best of the best.
Here's how pricing breaks down as of today (Aug 2023). To see the most current pricing, you can check out their CMS page here.

HubSpot is great about saving you money when you bundle hubs. Maybe you're ready for all of the tools included with Marketing Hub or you need Sales Pro. If you buy them together, you can typically score a better price.
3. Security You Can Trust
Security is important to everyone. HubSpot CMS offers robust security measures, outclassing WordPress and Drupal in this aspect.
- Regular Updates: HubSpot constantly monitors and updates its security features. Unlike alternative CMSs, you aren't required to run updates all the time to keep your site safe.
- SSL Included: You get SSL certificates right out of the box, ensuring data integrity and confidentiality.
- 24/7 Monitoring: HubSpot's dedicated team monitors your site around the clock, safeguarding against threats.
4. Built-In SEO Coach
With SEO best practices embedded into the platform, HubSpot CMS Hub takes much of the complexity out of optimizing your website for search engines.
The built-in SEO recommendations guide you through every step, from keyword optimization to internal linking strategies, ensuring that your content aligns with what search engines and users are looking for.
The responsive design feature ensures that your site looks great on any device, a crucial factor in Google's ranking algorithm.
Plus, with integrated analytics tools, you can continually monitor how your pages are performing in search results and make data-driven decisions to improve them.
5. Integrated Platform
Perhaps one of the most compelling features for marketers is HubSpot CMS's seamless integration with other HubSpot Hubs, such as the CRM.
- Unified Platform: Everything from your marketing campaigns to sales data is connected within the same ecosystem. This saves time and reduces data silos.
- Personalized Marketing: By having access to customer data within the CRM, you can create targeted, personalized content that resonates with your audience.
- Improved Collaboration: Sales and marketing teams can collaborate more efficiently due to integrated tools and shared data.
If you're looking to drive your business forward, HubSpot CMS offers you a more secure, easier-to-use, and seamlessly integrated solution compared to WordPress or Drupal.
