How To Navigate Hubspot

If you work in marketing, sales, or own a business, you’re probably familiar with HubSpot, a robust platform for inbound marketing and sales. But like any comprehensive tool, it may take some time to get the hang of it initially. This blog post will provide you with tips on how to efficiently navigate HubSpot.

Getting Started

Once you’ve logged into HubSpot, you’ll find yourself on the dashboard. This is the control hub of your account where you can monitor your marketing performance, sales activity, and customer service metrics. You can also customize it to display your most used reports for easier access.

Navigating the Menu Bar

The primary tool for navigation in HubSpot is the menu bar at the top of the page. It’s divided into several sections: Marketing, Sales, Services, Automation, Reports, and Settings.

Marketing Hub

The Marketing Hub is where you manage your inbound marketing efforts. Here, you can create and analyze content (blog posts, landing pages, emails), manage your SEO, track website traffic, set up social media campaigns, and more.

Sales Hub

The Sales Hub offers features for managing and tracking your sales pipeline. This includes the creation of deals, tracking emails, scheduling meetings, making calls, and managing your contacts and companies.

Service Hub

In the Service Hub, you can track, manage, and analyze your customer service activities. You can create support tickets, manage your knowledge base, monitor customer feedback, and more.

Automation and Reports

The Automation section is where you can set up workflows to automate your marketing, sales, and service processes. In the Reports section, you can generate detailed analytics about your business performance.

The Settings

Finally, the Settings section is where you can manage all your account settings, including integrations with other software, user permissions, account details, and more.


Navigating HubSpot may seem daunting at first, but once you understand the basic layout and functions, you’ll find it’s a highly intuitive and powerful tool. With a bit of practice, you’ll be navigating HubSpot like a pro in no time.
