If you haven’t heard by now, HubSpot is a pretty big deal.

 

They’re the authority on inbound marketing. They essentially spearheaded the software movement behind the idea that marketing should be helpful, not disruptive.

If you’re wanting to step up your marketing game with the inbound marketing methodology, you’ll want to consider entering the HubSpot world. The publicly traded company has been around since 2006, offering an easy, all-in-one solution for marketers and salespeople worldwide.

 

Their platform combines inbound marketing, CRM, email marketing, analytics, automation, and more, so marketers can get everything done in one spot.

 

HubSpot is all-encompassing. You might be wondering how the pricing works, so we’ll break it down simply for you.

What You Get with HubSpot Pricing

HubSpot features 4 main products. They feature a “land and expand” pricing model that begins with HubSpot CRM… which is completely free. Sounds pretty good, right?

 

That’s because it is. Their CRM is incredible, offering new and seasoned marketers an easy way to organize their marketing efforts.

 

After you land on the free CRM, HubSpot has 3 expansion plans to dive deeper:

  • Marketing Hub
  • Sales Hub
  • Service Hub

 

Each plan includes a variety of features and add-ons:

  • Free
  • Starter ($50/month)
  • Professional ($400-$800/month)
  • Enterprise ($1200-$3200/month)

 

They also offer Growth Suite which bundles all the products together at a combined discount of 25%.

Quick Guide: HubSpot Pricing & Plans

HubSpot offers a ton of various features and tools. But, for the sake of simplicity, we’ll focus on the main features with each tier of their plan.

 

Naturally, they become increasingly expensive as you upgrade. Thankfully, it starts with HubSpot CRM which is 100% free.

 

Each price is broken down by month. However, if a plan costs more than $400 per month, it’s billed annually. It’s important to note that HubSpot’s free plans come with HubSpot branding. If you want to remove it, you’ll need (at a minimum) to upgrade to the Starter plan.

 

HubSpot allows you to pay in 7 currencies: USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, JAP, COP, and SGD.

 

You’ll notice that each plan gives you a different number of “users”. These are simply admin accounts that can access every feature of the plan.

HubSpot’s A La Carte Menu: Add-Ons & Custom Bundles

HubSpot goes beyond their regular plans to offer even more features… a la carte.

 

On top of their plan offerings, you can also add more features and extra users:

  • CMS: Content Management System to create a lightning fast, mobile optimized site. You can purchase this product completely on its own. It’s $300/month (plus a $1000 setup fee)
  • Custom reports: Get custom reports with customizable dashboards and templates sent via email every month. It’s $200/month.
  • API: If you want to increase the API call volume of integrations, you can increase your calls from 40k per day to 160k per day for an extra $500/month.
  • Add extra users: This varies depending on your plan. Each extra user in the Service and Sales Hub starter plans cost $50/month. Each extra user in the professional plan costs $80/month. In the Enterprise plan, it’s $120/month.
  • Increase contacts in the Marketing Hub: Add 1000 extra contacts in the Starter plan for $20/month. In the Professional plan it’s $50/month. For Enterprise, it’s $10/month.

 

Finally, HubSpot offers an impressive “custom bundle” option. In this section, you can select the hub you want, the add-ons you need, and the service you require.

 

This is an impressive feature since you get access to a complete “buffet menu” of features. Picking and choosing this kind of customization usually requires a phone call to speak to an advisor. But not with HubSpot. They make it easy to get exactly what you want directly on their site.

 

You can use HubSpot’s pricing calculator when customizing your plans and add-ons which makes it easy to know exactly what you’d pay each month.
