Key features that will make you love CMS Hub Professional
You can start from scratch or use a template
Allow your developer to create a site-wide content editing experience that puts the marketer in control. Start from scratch or leverage one of HubSpot’s pre-built themes as a starting point. Themes allow marketers to make large-scale changes to web-based content without needing a developer for maintenance and without knowing CSS.
Drag-and-drop page editing - it's that simple
Focus on creating amazing content, not managing your content creation process. With CMS Hub, your developer can create a flexible content creation experience that allows you to create pages through a drag and drop editing experience easily .
Build dynamic content with HubDB
With HubDB, you can build data tables displayed on your website or landing pages. With HubDB, you can update the content in the data table, and have that change reflected across your entire site wherever the table is referenced. This is especially useful for event calendars, product catalogs, employee listings, and resource libraries.
You can rely on SEO recommendations
While most SEO tools require users to conduct outside research and prioritize keywords throughout their website, HubSpot's all-in-one platform gives you SEO recommendations alongside their content tools, providing you tips and tricks for the right keywords, ways to improve your search ranking and updates on your competitors from one tool.
Appeal to a global audience with multi-language content
Easily create, manage, and optimize a multi-language site as your business grows. In-language variants of a specific page will automatically be associated together. This makes your content easy to manage as you scale. With HubSpot's CMS Hub Enterprise, you are also able to run tests on each multi-language variation to understand what is performing best.
Never lose hours of work again with content staging
With the content staging tool, you can redesign and relaunch website pages in a safe staging area. HubSpot hosts any content you create and publish in content staging on a sandbox domain, and won’t replace your live content until you’ve reviewed and approved everything.
You can easily analyze what is and isn't working
