What I Learned Building My First HubSpot Theme

When we first started utilizing HubSpot and became a HubSpot Partner Agency in 2015, HubSpot looked a lot different. The platform itself looked and functioned differently, there was no Sales Hub or Service Hub, and the HubSpot CMS was known as the HubSpot COS (and was really an afterthought).

Needless to say, a lot has changed in the last six years. And it seems like more and more is changing by the day with HubSpot. Earlier in 2020, HubSpot rolled out themes. It was a monumental shift in the way the HubSpot CMS functioned as well as how things like landing pages, thank you pages, and blogs were built and managed.

Creating A Holiday HubSpot Chatbot

The holiday season is finally upon us. After the 853 months so far in 2020 (or maybe it just feels like that many), we're finally in the last month of the weirdest year on record. The good news is, it's also the happiest month of the year! 

I don't know about you, but I look forward to December every year. It's all the lights, gift giving, food, family, friends, and general cheer that surrounds this month that gets me excited.

Inbound Sales: The LIONS Approach

We have been a HubSpot Partner Agency for about six years now, and it's been one heck of a whirlwind. When we started with HubSpot, we really didn't think that inbound was as intensive of an undertaking as it would prove to be. See, we were already performing and executing on all kinds of inbound marketing tactics - website design, search engine optimization, blogging, social media, email marketing, landing pages and diving deep into analytics. So, this inbound thing was just a nice way of wrapping it all up together, right? Eh...not exactly.

Get More Out Of HubSpot With HIVE Hub

HubSpot is one of the world’s leading marketing automation platforms and they have also added on sales, service, and CMS website platform options in the last few years. While they realize that they will never be an all-in-one platform (mostly because that is genuinely impossible), they have adopted an all-on-one mantra.
