HubSpot Onboarding

If you're looking to implement HubSpot in your business, it's important to understand the costs associated with Hubspot Onboarding.

In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at HubSpot onboarding costs and the different options available.

What is HubSpot onboarding?

HubSpot is a powerful, multi-featured CRM tool with a lot to offer. Once you've decided to incorporate it into your tech stack, you want to take full advantage of its capabilities to get the best ROI. A well-planned onboarding process for HubSpot sets the stage for leveraging HubSpot's benefits. 

HubSpot onboarding is the process of getting your HubSpot account set up and configured to meet your specific needs. It involves everything from setting up your HubSpot portal and integrations to training your team on how to use the platform effectively.

What are the options available?

When it comes to onboarding HubSpot you have a choice between two options. You can either rely on HubSpot to guide you through the process, or you can seek the assistance of a HubSpot partner such as Branue.

What is the cost of going direct with HubSpot?

The onboarding experience with HubSpot depends on the plan you choose, but typically, you'll have a consultant for the first 90 days.

For clients who prefer to do most of the HubSpot implementation themselves, direct onboarding with HubSpot is a great option.

In this approach, a consultant is assigned to act as a project manager and provide guidance by assigning tasks and homework. This low-cost, low-support option is ideal for clients who want to replicate their existing processes and learn how best to set up and implement HubSpot.

In addition, if you're looking for a solution that accurately maps your current processes into HubSpot while being cost-effective, Direct Onboarding could be the perfect solution for you.

However, if you want an expert to set up and improve your processes or to onboard with greater support, you should consider a HubSpot partner .

When onboarding with Branue, the final cost is determined by which Hubs you’re onboarding and a foundational HubSpot setup fee.

The foundational HubSpot setup is not just a requirement, it is the key to success. Getting it right from the beginning is crucial, and we've done it hundreds of times before. Even if you're onboarding more than one Hub, the foundational setup only needs to be completed once. 

The onboarding process includes planning, foundational setup, implementation per Hub, and training and handover. During the planning phase, you'll go through discovery calls on business processes and non-functional requirements, and the Solutions Architect will create the HubSpot implementation and specifications.

Next, you'll receive 13 hours of foundational setup that can involve creating custom properties, migrating data via CSV, and setting up user accounts, brand guidelines, and dashboard reporting.

The implementation phase includes either 9 hours of Marketing Hub setup, 6 hours of Sales Hub setup, or 9 hours of Service Hub setup, depending on the Hubs you're implementing. After about two months, the training and handover phase begins, which includes live training and implementation walkthroughs and the implementation of training edits.

Onboarding with Branue is the perfect fit for clients who are seeking professional support and guidance while setting up HubSpot. It is especially beneficial for customers who want to outsource the fundamental setup components based on reliable experience and industry best practices.

Additionally, clients who are willing to invest in a higher level of service and input beyond the onboarding of HubSpot itself will find it an ideal solution.

However, for bespoke large-scale onboarding involving change management and CRM governance or process and architecture review, consultation, and improvement, our Advanced Onboarding may be more suitable.

What is the cost of going for advanced onboarding with Branue?

Our Advanced Onboarding offers a highly consultative approach to maximise the potential of your business processes, provide HubSpot CRM control and governance, and offer sophisticated change management services.

The cost of going for advanced onboarding with Branue will depend on the complexity and requirements of your project. Typically, it will range from £30,000 up to £100,000 more.

Throughout the discovery phase, our team of expert consultants will work closely with you to provide a comprehensive cost breakdown based on your specific requirements. 

Investing in advanced onboarding with Branue: The key to a successful and engaged workforce

While the cost of advanced onboarding with Branue may be higher than the other options, it's important to consider the value that you'll receive.

With advanced onboarding, you'll get customised training that's tailored to your business needs. This can include in-depth training on specific features or integrations that are critical to your success.

In addition to customised training, advanced onboarding with Branue also includes custom integrations.

This means that your HubSpot account will be set up to work seamlessly with other tools and platforms that you use in your business.

This can save you time and money in the long run by streamlining your workflows and eliminating manual data entry.
