Re: Should we move our blog to Hubspot?SOLVE

I'm with a new startup so we'll be launching a blog for the first time. Therefore, my concerns are slightly different than these listed but I wanted to see if you all have any thoughts to share. Would you recommend starting out with HubSpot? One of my top concerns is design control. I am aware that HubSpot can now take our website home page design and apply that to the blog within a couple of weeks turnaround time, but I also read that one exception in this process is fonts which is a big part of our design. Does anyone have any experience with this process or starting a blog on HubSpot without a CSS or developer on our team? The other option I am looking at is Wordpress because of the integration.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I would move the blog to Hubspot. You can easily do subscriber lists and post notfications without integrating another application. Analytics is also presented in a easy way for marketers, that don't have experience with Google Analytics, to understand. Design is pretty flexible in Hubspot, including webfonts. That can all be implemented in your CSS. If the font is currently implemented on your website, in can be implemented in your Hubspot blog.

Happy to work through this with you. So it seems like the biggest concern is in regards to blog fonts. Do you know if these are custom fonts that you are looking to use on these pages? For example, HubSpot does have resources that walk through how to use these in your custom CSS. Here is one page that I like to send to customers to review https://knowledge.hubspot.com/cos-general/use-custom-fonts-on-blog-posts-or-pages
HubSpot has lots of resources open to customers, and while we do recommend working with developers if you are looking to utilize custom design, they do have resources open to customers including HubSpot support line, and out forums like this to post questions.
So in my eyes there is no reason not to move the blog over to HubSpot. We like to consider HubSpot the Ferrari of CMS platforms 🙂
