The Webcoda Website has been through more Content Management Systems than you can poke a stick at. As a technology company, we often serve as our own guinea pigs to gain insights into the customer experience. (Actual image below)

Managing a website isn't a walk in the park, even for us! In fact, our expertise demands that we hold our website and CMS to a higher standard.

HubSpot CMS is a game-changer compared to what we're used to. It's like transitioning from the days of CDs to streaming or switching from a combustion engine car to an electric one. While it may not be everyone's cup of tea just yet, once you give it a go, you can't help but see it as the future.

HubSpot is a Saas(sy) CMS

SaaS - Software as a Service. HubSpot is managed, hosted, and upgraded by HubSpot itself. (Insert sigh of relief 😙)

Say goodbye to..

    • Needing to upgrade your CMS or transfer your site to a different hosting provider,

    • Being informed by your web agency that your current CMS is approximately five versions outdated and no longer supported, necessitating an expensive upgrade

  1. Say hello to.. 
    • The joy of logging in to discover new features that have appeared "automagically" (TM Patent pending 😜) without you having to lift a finger.

Managing Content - Drag and Drop Interface

See the short video below to get a sense of how easy the editing experience is - "Drag and Drop - perhaps the most satisfying duo in the realm of computing.

Handling content in HubSpot isn't just easy - it's a downright exhilarating experience!"

The intuitive nature of the drag and drop interface allows you to quickly arrange and customize elements on your webpages. This simplicity and ease of use make HubSpot CMS an ideal choice for businesses of all sizes, enabling them to create visually appealing and functional websites without any complexity.

AI Assistance in Content Creation

AI is everywhere and unless Elon Musk is right and it leads to the end of the world, we will all need to get on board or get left behind. The AI capabilities in HubSpot, simply give you content ideas and improve your content in a couple of clicks. (See video above)

Power up with the HubSpot Ecosystem

  • HubSpot CMS seamlessly integrates with the HubSpot ecosystem, which includes the awesome CRM and Sales Marketing tools. This integration ensures a cohesive and efficient workflow for businesses. By using HubSpot CMS, you can leverage the power of the entire ecosystem to optimize your web management strategies and achieve better results.

 

Additional Benefits

  • HubSpot CMS is surprisingly cost effective  - You can start with the free version which at time of writing is what we have been using. if you choose to upgrade to the paid version then remember that also covers the cost of hosting and all upgrades
  • HubSpot CMS has built in tools to review your site from a content and SEO standpoint.

We love the intuitiveness, power and flexibility of HubSpot CMS.

The moment you start using HubSpot CMS, you can see that this is the future of Web Content Management. So much is taken care of for you.

All you have to worry about is creating the best content you can and even then, you have AI to help.

I highly recommend giving it a go and if you need any help, you know how to reach us.
