Key features of HubSpot’s new CMS Starter

HubSpot's CMS Hub enhances security, bridges the gap between marketers and developers, and enables business owners like you to tap into data about customers visiting your site. Here are some specific features that will make your life easier on HubSpot's new CMS Hub Starter: 

Giving you peace of mind with safeguards

Traditional CMSs leave the security, speed, and reliability of your website up to chance. This is a terrifying thought when you're a small or medium-sized operation, as you might not have a budget for an IT person to watch over your site 24/7.

What's great is that CMS Hub Starter takes care of the maintenance associated with a traditional CMS so you can focus on creating an amazing customer experience through your website. Hooray, for that peace of mind.

It helps developers, and marketers speak the same language

Most CMS solutions force you to make a trade-off. You can have a simple web page builder that lets marketers create content quickly and easily but has no tools for your developers, or you can have a legacy enterprise CMS that blocks out your marketer.

If you want to grow your business through your website, you need a CMS that both your marketers and developers love. CMS Hub Starter lets your developers use the tools, technologies, and workflows that they prefer to create flexible themes for your marketers to work within.

Marketers can then take ownership of your business website and be able to update the look and feel of it without being restricted by the dev team’s availability.

It’s an all-in-one CRM platform

Are you limiting your website’s potential with a detached CMS solution? If your organization is going to spend the time, resources, and money needed to make inbound work, you absolutely need to be collecting data on your organization’s most important marketing asset - your website. 

HubSpot's CMS Hub Starter is built as part of HubSpot’s CRM platform to ensure that your website is part of your growth machine and delivers skyrocketing results.
