Lead Flow - Call to action button instead of filling out form

Lead flows is a fairly weak tool when compared to tools like Sumo and it's pretty frustrating for our company.

 

We need the ability to create a lead flow that just has a call-to-action button to click through on to the desired location. Right now, we are forced to create a form. This is obviously great for capturing leads, but what if we just want to drive them to a landing page or a different URL? HubSpot does not offer that ability with any of the available tools.

 

Anyone else need a pop up with a call-to-action button rather than being locked down to making a form?

Hi @mattgeller

 

Thank you for your feedback regarding lead flows! Currently the functionality of the tool does require a form to ensure that you are gathering leads through your lead flow. 

 

If you would like to avoid having a form, I would recommend working with a designer to build out a custom element using javascript and a CTA. This is not a built in functionality of HubSpot, however and would require working with a designer. 

 

Thank you,

Jenny

We could use a custom element, but the beauty is doing it all within HubSpot, so really it's not an option for us.

 

Is this the best place to list this comment so that it gets picked up as a feature request? Happy to give more context on to why this could be enormously powerful for inbound marketing. We've done it for 2+ years with the sumo plugin with great results. 

 

Ex) HubSpot has such powerful landing pages, but no way to drive users there other than ads, email, search, and a few other tools, but how powerful it would be to just drive a pop-up form to get people to that landing page with a CTA rather than needing to fill out a form.

 

Thanks.

Hi @mattgeller,

 

Thank you for the feedback! Moving forward, I definitely recommend submitting this as a feature request with any additional detail or context you can provide to the Ideas forum. The team is actively watching that channel as they continue to build out the functionality of the tool and would love to hear your thoughts!

 

Best,

Jorie

We're feeling out the capabilities in HubSpot and determining whether to jump in with both feet, augment another system with it, or use something else entirely. This feature has come up as a shortfall, which is how I found this thread.

 

Please add this feature! It would make a big difference in our decision.

Hey @mattgeller, I really wanted this ability for custom slide-ins as well. Here's a workaround you can use: https://web.archive.org/web/20140410164853/https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/how-to-add-a-slide-in-...

 

Hopefully, Hubspot will provide the ability for more robust/customizable lead flows soon as they are super basic right now.
