As a new comer to CMS, I have started with CMS Pro, I feel overwelming with its new tools and features, and other Hubspot Marketing, Operation, Sales,..I have employed some free lancers for CMS websites but the outcomes are below my expectations, I am stuck in this website projects.

 

Could you advice any directions where I could gain the best results to apply to my treavel business company besides of CMS Hub Pro, which one I could pick next?

 

Thank you.

Hi Greg,

 

It is clearly a good design site. I will also show my site when it has done.

Thanks for your sharing, I have paid my budget to hire the freelancers. I keep it in mind for further projects. Keep in touch. 

 

Thank you.

Hi @GregCarpenter thanks for sharing your website, although I have to agree with @Heather1910 that on the surface I don't think this website needed to be $15k...

 

This could very easily have been built with a pro theme from the marketplace for less than $1k and the content build/migration would have been significantly less than what you paid. With that said, if it's a custom coded theme with a custom design, it starts to add up and could easily be $15k.

 

The most important thing is that you are happy with your website and got the value out of the project that you wanted. Time is money too, so having someone build a beautiful website for you is always money well spent.

 

Congratulations on your new website!

Happy to help @PamCotton and welcome the the community @ThangQuyetTran.

 

I completely understand how overwhelming it can be to start with CMS Pro and I'm sorry you haven't had the best experience working with freelancers on a website.

 

One of the easiest ways to build your website with HubSpot is by choosing a theme from the Template Marketplace.

 

I've built websites with most of the paid themes and nearly all of the free themes (excluding many of the newer themes released after mid-2023).

 

My suggestion would be to start with a paid theme that offers support, you'll find more in-depth documentation, help with getting started, etc. that will make building your website easier. I typically recommend POWER Pro because of the flexibility it offers, when choosing a theme you'll want to focus more on functionality than design/colors and make sure you review the live demo to test the features, review the available templates, modules, etc.

 

CMS Hub Pro is worth it - and while CMS Hub Starter is a great deal, there are many limitations that will prevent you from leveraging the full capabilities of the CMS. Since the quality/features/functionality of most themes depend on the subscription, sticking with Pro is the best option (in my opinion).

 

If you plan to build the website yourself, completing the CMS for Marketers certification from HubSpot Academy will provide the basics of working with a theme - as you'll learn, there's no code required and it's all drag-and-drop!

 

I'd be happy to help if you have further questions about getting started!

Hi Jennifer,

 

It is my pleasures to be here and I have got the resourses that could help me. I have purchased CLEAN PRO from Kelvin, it is an awsome theme and I am happy with this, it is worth every pennies.

 

I am ready to come to the end of the course. 

Thank you!

That's wonderful @ThangQuyetTran, I'm glad you decided on a theme and you'll love working with Clean Pro, I can't agree more that it's worth every penny!

 

Can't wait to see the website when you're done with it!

 

All the best,

Jennifer
