What makes the HubSpot CRM platform superior?

HubSpot is one of the many different CRMs available. While many of its competitors claim to boast the same level of functionality and contact visibility as HubSpot, HubSpot continues to reign supreme as it's crafted and not cobbled.

What this means is, that unlike its competitors, HubSpot takes the time - for every new function - to develop it from scratch using the same source code. For comparison's sake, many of its competitors will acquire and integrate new features from third-party applications as a faster and cheaper alternative. This cobbled-together approach works for a period, however, can become problematic when new versions, updates, and developments are added as the variations in code are so high. The impact this cobbled approach can have on user experience isn't great - it can become bug heavy and therefore make the CRM tiresome and complicated to use.

For users, it's this crafted element of the HubSpot CRM that is the real selling point. And because all HubSpot features use the same source code, there is little to no impact on user experience when platform developments do happen.

How to get your HubSpot CRM purchase over the line?

The crafted vs. cobbled argument is a great starting point to peak your C-Suites interest but how do you actually get your HubSpot CRM purchase over the line? Simple. Cold hard facts.

HubSpot’s 2021 ROI report found that after using HubSpot CRM for just one year, the average customer:

  • Grew their website traffic by 181%
  • Attracted 159% more inbound leads through form submissions
  • Closed and won 92% more deals, with a 41% better deal close rate

These facts are a great starting point but to ensure your audience is paying attention you need to speak to their unique challenges. Here's an outline to get you started:


CEOs need to understand the bigger picture of what’s going on in their business. At a basic level, their goal is to increase revenue and reduce costs while managing risks and stakeholder expectations.


COOs want to see efficient functions within the business that enable customer-facing teams to keep customers happy. That means understanding what customers want and how best to deliver it.


Marketing managers need to stay up to date with changing buyer behaviour in order to attract, engage and convert the right audience. From understanding content to user experience and campaign monitoring, there’s a lot they have to be on top of.
