How to Migrate from Salesforce to HubSpot
by Gabriela Theard


Let’s face it, HubSpot is the hottest ‘spot’ on the CRM market.


Older CRM systems like Salesforce might work for you but may no longer fit the needs of your business. If you’re looking to make the switch from Salesforce to HubSpot, here’s how you do it.


Trujay is an automated migration service that migrates customer data for you, so you don’t have to lift a finger. We bridge the gap between almost all CRM data migrations, including Salesforce and HubSpot.



What is the best part?


We’re partnered with HubSpot and use it ourselves. So, yes; naturally, we are the experts.


If you didn’t already know, HubSpot is FREE for an unlimited number of users and up to 1 million contacts.



What else is so great about HubSpot?



  • User-friendly interface and winning design


This completely free platform offers a variety of features that make it simple and efficient to use. 

Automated tasks and customizable data allow you to focus instead of learning how to use the CRM system to boost your sales. 



  • Website integration


This feature allows you to get notifications when a lead visits your site. This can be very useful because you can see, for example, the sites that your lead has seen, know what they need and sell it to them immediately. 



  • Track communications


For any salesperson, recording and monitoring interactions with prospective customers can be a bit of a headache. However, the HubSpot CRM framework handles this very well by enabling you to send email to customers directly from the website, recording the correspondence in the contact record of the lead immediately — there is even a function that allows you to record your phone calls



  • Real-time updates


The CRM’s real-time update sync every 10 minutes, ensuring sales representatives get the most up-to-date details at their disposal. They should also be comfortable in reaching out to leads with the most reliable and accurate information available to hand.



Here’s what you want to do before you start the migration from Salesforce to HubSpot:


  • Delete all unnecessary data from your current CRM 
  • You can know how the platform works because HubSpot is free
  • Arrange your backup plan in case you lose some data during the transition
  • Notify your employees about a shift and provide some guidance
