How to Migrate The Content from Hubspot to WordPress: The Basic Guide

Read in 3 minutes

Hubspot is a famous CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system, but not many people know that it can also be a Content Management System (CMS) or Content Optimization System (COS). Those who do and use Hubspot CMS might ponder over switching their platform to WordPress.

…more about Hubspot CMS

Hubspot CMS has a lot to offer. It’s not a traditional CMS in common sense. This platform contains all-in-one elements like blog forms, landing pages, email and data analytics. It also supports marketing automation and lead management which makes Hubspot CMS a great solution for many businesses. And, of course, this CMS has a full CRM integration which is essential for many companies.

If you aim to create a website that you can easily get up and run fast (with a pre-built template), Hubspot is ready to help. The design templates are responsive, and you can customize with a drag and drop UI.

The Main Reasons Why People Might Want to Switch to WordPress

  • Cost

The biggest drawbacks of Hubspot CMS is the price tag that comes with it. It starts at $300 per month but together with marketing or/and sales package the final cost gets a little murky.

  • Ownership

Like many other closed-sources, Hubspot CMS provides everything needed for newbies. Later it gets more and more obvious that’s not such a good thing as it seemed at the start. In other words, you don’t own your website, so you can’t simply change host or export the data and upload it to another platform

As Hubspot uses own database and doesn’t support the database integration, it makes this software no go for many businesses.

  • HubSpot Markup Language (HubL)

Hubl is a unique scripting language Hubspot requires you to use when pulling in the dynamic content. That means the developers and designers need to learn a new coding language while working with the platform.

  • Limitations

As it was mentioned, Hubspot CMS is a closed-source with the own scripting language. The back-end systems like CRM, ERP, billing or other tools or solutions couldn’t be connected to the sources behind Hubspot, and that can create some challenges.

With all in-bounded tools provided (Marketing, Sales Hub) Hubspot CMS is a strong platform which can be a great solution for the smaller and mid-size companies. But due to closed Hubspot architecture, this software has limitations that can affect the following growth of the business.
