Want to boost your customer satisfaction by 39%? Use HubSpot

9 min read


In this article, we will uncover the impact of HubSpot Marketing Hub on customer satisfaction, as highlighted in the latest IDC Whitepaper study. 

The ability to fulfil customer expectations is the lifeblood of any successful business. Many organisations are therefore looking for a powerful tool that can help them meet or even exceed their customers' expectations. 

At the forefront of helping companies meet customer expectations is HubSpot CRM, and its marketing automation tool, called the HubSpot Marketing Hub.

The International Data Corporation, a leading global provider of market research and consulting services, has analysed the impact of HubSpot Marketing Hub in a comprehensive study. Through interviews with 10 organisations actively using the platform, IDC gathered valuable quantitative and qualitative data.

The latest study by the IDC found that organisations using HubSpot Marketing Hub see a significant 39% increase in customer satisfaction. In the same study, the IDC also found a remarkable 505% three-year return on investment (ROI) for organisations utilising HubSpot’s Marketing Hub.

In the following sections, we take a look at the tools and functions in HubSpot's Marketing Hub that companies can use to increase customer satisfaction by 39%.

The importance of customer satisfaction 

At a time when one negative impression can cause 52% of customers to switch to a competitor, the need for companies to prioritise exceptional customer experiences cannot be overstated. Notably, organisations placing a strategic emphasis on customer experience witness an impressive 80% increase in revenue.

Let's take a look at which areas are particularly important for creating a positive customer experience. 

Timely customer service is key

The influence of service expectations on purchasing decisions is evident, with 60% of consumers choosing one brand over another based on the service they anticipate receiving. Furthermore, customers are 2.4 times more likely to remain loyal to a brand when their issues are promptly resolved, according to Forrester, emphasising the importance of timely problem-solving. The demand for immediacy is a prevailing trend, with 72% of customers expressing a desire for immediate service. 

The importance of personalisation

Personalisation emerges as another strategy to increase customer satisfaction, with 60% of consumers indicating they become repeat buyers after a personalised purchasing experience (Twilio). The value of personalised recommendations is underscored by 62% of consumers who agree that personalised recommendations are superior to general ones, as reported in the Zendesk CX Trends Report 2023. 

In the B2B realm, where personalisation is equally crucial, 86% of B2B customers expect companies to be well-informed about their personal information during service interactions, according to Gartner. 

These statistics demonstrate the need for a platform that enables personalised interactions, prompt problem resolution and the strategic use of data, not only for customer loyalty but also for revenue growth and sustainable business success.
