What separates HubSpot from a lot of other customer relationship management (CRM) platforms is the bank of integrations it offers. Seventeen percent of salespeople cite lack of integration with other tools as the biggest challenge using their existing CRM, so having over 200 integrations available should be enough to convince you why HubSpot is a juggernaut of a platform to consider.

Obviously, we can’t list all 200 here. Instead, we’ve narrowed it down to four integrations your sales and marketing team should use to align their tech stacks, improve their processes and drive further growth.

  1. Video - Vidyard

  2. Sales - Salesforce

  3. Email - MailChimp

  4. Ecommerce - Shopify

1. Video - Vidyard

With more focus going on video content than ever before, your sales and marketing teams can unlock the full potential of video in HubSpot with the Vidyard integration. The integration lets your teams use video to create powerful connections at all stages of the customer journey, ranging from generating leads to closing deals to delight your customers - all inside HubSpot.

How it Helps

The HubSpot and Vidyard integration is more than just your standard reporting you might find in HubSpot Video. It provides advanced video analytics to complement HubSpot Video and also helps with the following:

  • Push actionable video analytics to contact records in HubSpot.

  • Use viewer engagement data to drive smarter marketing by segmenting, qualifying and nurturing leads based on how they’ve interacted with your video content.

  • Automate and optimise your marketing by feeding video data from your videos back into HubSpot to score leads, segment customers and trigger nurture workflows.

  • Personalise and priorities sales follow-ups by focusing on engaged sales opportunities.

  • Push viewer engagement data to contact records in HubSpot so your sales and marketing team know who’s watched what and they can tailor their sales outreach accordingly.

2. Sales - Salesforce

Salesforce is arguably one of the most popular integrations on HubSpot and for good reason. The integration allows for a fast, reliable and powerful integration between both databases so that your sales team is given powerful lead intelligence.

Most importantly, it keeps your sales and marketing teams aligned and their databases in perfect harmony.

How it Helps

With Salesforce and HubSpot being two of the most powerful CRMs around, it’s no surprise that there’s an integration available for your teams to benefit from. The integration unifies both platforms to enrich your marketing database with critical sales date so your teams can perform cross-channel reporting and gain much better visibility.

  • With a powerful bi-directional sync, changes in one system are automatically synced to the other.

  • Your teams can choose which new records sync from HubSpot to Salesforce and when.

  • You can automatically send important lead intelligence, such as form submissions, email opens, website activity and more, to your sales teams so they have valuable lead data to close more leads.

  • The integration lets you send lead scores from HubSpot to Salesforce to help your sales team prioritise their outreach which saves plenty of time.

  • Use details from Salesforce contacts and accounts to personalise marketing emails, segment your database and send emails on behalf of a lead’s assigned sales rep.

  • As your sales team close more leads as customers, Salesforce sends revenue data from closed-won opportunities right into HubSpot. This lets them tie specific marketing campaigns to real revenue.

3. Email - MailChimp
