Attaching Offline contacts to a campaign



We need to be able to attach contacts we upload to a campaign in Hubspot.

Let's face it, not many companies are 100% online, we all go to events and attend conferences where we get contacts, or even do hosted paid and are given lists of contacts (who have downloaded our content, not outbound).

Salesforce allows us to attach contacts to a campaign with a workflow, could be an idea.


It would also be useful to be able to attach contacts to a campaign for "deal source" purposes > when we send an MQL to an SDR, they get in touch, and the person forwards them to someone else in th company, so we can also attach that person to the source campaign!


Because I don't have this posisbility, I have created a set of altnerate custom sources to track my marketing activities ROI and it is not fun.


Please find a way of doing this!

Excellent idea. We also have lots of external or partner or co-branded events from where we get lists of contacts that we import into HubSpot. You can add static lists to campaigns though, so that is a workaround, but you cannot associate an external marketing event to a campaign either (i.e. a zoom webinar or something similar).


It seems like the Beta that was released simplest works if you have a Sales expert plan. What are the plans for rolling out this beta inside the Marketing hub? It's type of unusual to be that this become only rolled out for Sales hub seeing that I assume loads of folks in the Marketing hub would need to use this option.


THIS is much needed for accurate reporting of offline conversions. Please include this in the next product update!


We just kicked off a startup... but have used Salesforce for 8 years in my other company.


I have to say I am floored that Hubspot simply doesn't have the ability to assign / associate a contact with a campaign. This should be at the top of your priorities going into 2022. This ability is essential to my enterprise sales and partner sales teams are going to need. Please put some serious time and thought into this. It cannot be that hard to write some simple code to punch a contact from a list or from the contact view itself and associate with a campaign. Thanks for your time and consideration. 


How on earth is this not a feature...


Yes! Please explain how on earth this is not a feature (#same @MMetros5). It is mind-boggling.


OMG, how is this not yet a capability?  I have been asking for this for  YEARS!!
