  • Ability to publish up to 25 website pages in multiple languages
  • Blogging tools (1 blog / up to 100 blog posts)
  • Ability to connect a custom domain for website pages, blog posts, and landing pages
  • Drag-and-drop editing
  • Page-level analytics and Web Analytics dashboard
  • Built-in SEO recommendations
  • Developer tools (ability to modify your page HTML, CSS, and JavaScript using the Design Manager and CLI)

To start using the free CMS tools, navigate to Marketing > Website > Website pages in your portal.


Live Call direction is now a CRM property

Call direction (inbound and outbound) is now a CRM property. Users can view and set the direction in the activity timeline and add it to manual call logs. When a call takes place within HubSpot the direction is automatically added to the call record in the CRM timeline. Users can update the direction by selecting the dropdown (see image below).

On June 30, 2022 Google deprecated the ability to create or edit expanded text ads on its platform. From now on, when creating a new Google search ad campaign in HubSpot, you will only be able to create responsive ads. When in the Ads tool (navigate here by going to Marketing -> Ads), select "Create ad campaign" and choose "Search ad." Responsive ads will automatically be shown for all ads.
