HubSpot offered us a lower cost solution

Why I Switched from Salesforce to Hubspot?

Back in 2000, I was a very early adopter of Salesforce, so we have a long history with the platform. Throughout the years, I helped numerous clients implement it as their primary CRM. However, in recent years, I became increasingly frustrated with Salesforce due to its rising costs and shifting focus towards enterprise-level clients instead of small and medium sized businesses. Enter Hubspot.

My first encounter with Hubspot

In 2021, my son joined my firm and introduced me to HubSpot as an alternative to Salesforce. Initially, I was reluctant to make the switch, given my deep-seated familiarity with Salesforce and its product offerings. However, after giving HubSpot a try, I must say that it turned out to be a fantastic decision.

HubSpot offered us a lower cost solution- even its free version provides powerful features and benefits that we couldn’t find in Salesforce. Its seamless integration with email, robust reporting capabilities, intuitive templates, and easy automations and workflows were game-changers for our team. Most importantly, our team found HubSpot much easier to use than Salesforce, which led to increased productivity and efficiency.

Hubspot vs. Salesforce
What was the result?

As a result of our positive experience, we began recommending HubSpot to our smaller-sized clients, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. They too found it to be a user-friendly and cost-effective solution for their CRM needs.

Recently, because of our satisfaction, we made the decision to become Hubspot partners
