HubFans, the new HubSpot Advocacy program is here!
This program is for you if you want to:
Welcome to HubFans, a new HubSpot advocacy program! HubFans is for you if you’d like to learn, help other HubSpot users understand what’s possible with HubSpot, and grow your professional brand - all while embarking on a star-collecting mission in an atmosphere of friendly competition for the top spot on the HubFans leaderboard.
It’s very easy to get started on HubFans. Just go to the HubFans page in the Community, browse available challenges, and complete the ones you’re interested in. Here are some of the recommended challenges to help you get started:
You can earn HubFans points for completing each HubFans challenge and badges for some of the challenges. Points and badges that you earn will appear on your HubFans dashboard to the right of the challenges. As you earn more points, you’ll start moving up the HubFans ranks - from a HubFans all the way to an AllStar HubFans - earning prizes and getting access to more benefits.
HubFans ranks mark the major milestones along your advocacy journey. They showcase your contributions and expertise. To reach each HubFans rank you need to collect a certain number of points.
There are 4 ranks in HubFans:
Rank 1: HubFans (1 - 999 points)
Rank 2: Rising HubFans (1,000 - 2,499 points)
Rank 3: Super HubFans (2,500 - 4,999 points)
Rank 4: AllStar HubFans (5,000+ points)
Start completing challenges to fly up the ranks and one day become an AllStar HubFan.
The most straightforward way to earn points in HubFans is to start taking HubFans’ challenges either on the HubFans page or as they pop up in a chat-like window in the HubSpot Community. You might occasionally receive an invitation to participate in advocacy opportunities in an email from the HubSpot team, or your customer success manager.
Additionally, you can receive HubFans points for being a member or alumni of some other HubSpot programs like the Community Champions, or the HubSpot Customer Advisory Board.
You can also receive HubFans points if you participated in a case study with HubSpot, spoke at a HubSpot webinar, published a post in the Community User blog, were featured in an Academy course, or on HubSpot’s social media channel, or promoted HubSpot in other ways. To make sure you get your points, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although in most cases your HubFans points will appear on your HubFans dashboard and your Community profile immediately after you completed an advocacy challenge, in some cases, it might take up to 5 business days for the points to be assigned to you.
In addition to points, for some challenges, you can earn HubFans badges.
You’ll see your four most recent badges in My Recent Achievements section on the HubFans page.
To see all the badges you earned in HubFans go to either:
Once you reach the rank of AllStar HubFan you’ll be invited to join a private group for the top HubSpot advocates, called the HubFans Council. As a member of HubFans Council, you’ll have an opportunity to connect with other top advocates, learn from each other, and get access to exclusive events and content. You’ll be given opportunities to speak at community events, be a voice for advocates and provide feedback for future programming, etc.
Expiration of HubFans points, ranks, and benefits
If an advocate hasn’t been active in HubFans and hasn’t earned any new points in the previous 12 months their points will expire and their point balance will go to zero. Their rank will go down to Rank 1 - HubFans. They’ll lose access to all the program benefits above the HubFans rank, including access to the HubFans Council.
In order to maintain HubFans Council status, you need to earn at least 1,000 points annually.
Going up the HubFans ranks is prestigious and gives a lot of credibility to your brand as a HubSpot advocate. But the best part is that as you fly up the ranks you get access to more and more benefits!
HubFans benefits include:
Additional benefits for all program members include top user recognition (based on product usage), prizes, and HubSpot swag for one-off activities.
Stay tuned as we’ll be adding more benefits in 2022!
