In this blog, Jenna Linley, Head of Marketing at Huble Digital, runs through the free sales certifications available on HubSpot to support you on your Inbound sales journey.

What are the HubSpot Sales and CRM Hubs?

The HubSpot Sales & CRM Hubs are often viewed as Robin is to Batman: undervalued and overlooked. For years, HubSpot Marketing Hub has been the hero software, yet (as Robin is to Batman) the Sales enablement tools and CRM system are just as crucial to achieving your revenue goals.

Working with the HubSpot CRM, the HubSpot Sales Hub can help automate and manage your entire sales process. You can...

  • create custom dashboards to track how deals are progressing;
  • automate sequences and follow-up emails to speed up and personalise your outreach;
  • organise all your sales activity in one place;
  • and accelerate sales cycles to close more deals, faster.

There's no surprise then that in 2019, HubSpot introduced the cyclonic buyer's journey, replacing the funnel with the new flywheel model approach. This model highlights sales' importance in delighting and retaining customers.
