In today’s article, we’re going to give you the full low-down on Hubspot’s Sales software, and how it can transform the dull, time-consuming sales process into a streamlined and simple one.
Let’s get down to (growing your) business.
What is Hubspot Sales?
The famous English naturalist Charles Darwin once said “A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”
Darwin probably wasn’t thinking about members of a sales team sitting behind their computers completing tedious tasks from 9-5, but we can still apply it to our topic today.
Time is the most valuable resource we have. Hubspot knows this. After realizing how frustrated marketing teams were becoming with spending so much of their workday completing manual tasks, they began asking themselves: what if there was a software that allowed you to do it all from one platform?
And so, Hubspot Sales was born.
Hubspot Sales is a powerful sales software that allows you to organize your sales activities, track deals, and speed up sales cycles to close deals faster – all in one place!
It’s modern and up-to-date approach allows you to uncover more leads and increase revenue while spending less money on resources and time. With the Hubspot Sales CRM, you can connect with the right people, at the right time, with the right message.
Sounds like music to your ears, doesn’t it?

Let’s go a bit deeper into each of these key features to understand how they work and most importantly, how they can transform the sales process for your business.
One of the most daunting things about deciding to adopt new software for your business is the prospect of learning to use it. With Hubspot Sales, you eliminate the hours of training, buckets of coffee, and cries of frustration.
Hubspot Sales caters to the needs of small and developing businesses, as well as large-scale ones. The team at Hubspot came up with a modern and intuitive interface and navigation. You’ll get the hang of it in no time at all! The system is also hosted in Cloud, so you don’t have to worry about installation fees and tiresome set-up processes.
This time-saving feature allows you to send emails sequentially until either a prospect responds or books a meeting.
We all know that cold outreach with a generic pitch isn’t effective outreach, that’s why with Hubspot Sales’ sequencing tools you can send personalized emails in an automated sequencing process, saving time and nurturing the lead.
Manually sending custom emails to each of your customers and prospects can be extremely time-consuming. Hubspot Sales allows you to save your most effective email templates and share them across teams. So, when you’re ready to send an email you can select a template and personalize it to the individual customer.
Fun fact: if you follow up with web leads within 5 minutes, you’re 9 times more likely to convert them (InsideSales.com). But how can you be sure to follow up within 5 minutes?
Live notifications are a great Hubspot Sales feature that helps you understand when to engage with a prospect. You’ll get real-time notifications when a prospect or customer opens an email, clicks a link, or visits your page. This allows for timely and relevant follow-ups that make a difference in closing deals. It stores deep-engagement data, so you can better understand your prospects’ behaviors and who to zero-in on as leads.
You can chat with your prospects as they’re engaging with your website. Then send the prospect in the direction of the right salesperson to build relationships and ultimately close more deals.
Hubspot Sales meeting scheduler makes getting a prospect to book a meeting simple. It connects to your calendar to make sure you’re not overbooking yourself or someone else (works with Google Calendar, Office 365, and HubSpot CRM).
You can set up personal meetings as well as group meetings with other teams. You can eliminate tedious missed calls and the slow email process by sending prospects a link where they can choose a meeting time that works for both of you.
Bonus: If a prospect schedules a meeting, then they will automatically be unenrolled from any sequence they’re a part of.
When it’s time to speak to the client, the calling feature allows you to connect quickly and easily, prioritize best prospects in a queue, and record calls to go back to later.
Hubspot Sales pipeline management tool allows you to add deals, add tasks, and track progress all with the click of your mouse. Having everything in one place eliminates the need for multiple programs and open windows on your screen, saving time, and creating a more streamlined process.
Fill your dynamic dashboard with your imported contacts, and have critical metrics logged automatically when they open an email. You can also create multiple pipelines to keep prospects moving through the appropriate funnel based.
Hubspot is always on call to lend a hand. If you’re ever in need of assistance, reach out to one of the friendly team via phone, email, or live chat.
