Hi, I'm to Hubspot and just setting up. My biz model is a broker model so I need to track two distinctly different kinds of data. I have the end users (several individuals within a company that are looking for the service I broker, Then I have the companies that do the work (I need to track a lot of these kinds of companies and have contracts with them). Should I setup two databases or should I setup one database and tag each contact according to their data type? What is best given Hubspots tools?

My opinion based on what you've told me would be to maintain one database and tag the different data types appropriately. It should be easy to accomplish this using custom properties. 

 

Others may have a different take, but that's how I am leaning.

 

I hope that helps!
