Many businesses have turned to HubSpot’s CMS to grow their business by adopting even the most essential HubSpot tips for engaging prospects with the appropriate landing pages, the calls to action and personalized emails that target the right customers.

However, a good portion of companies would still like to use their own CMS regardless of whether it’s Joomla, Drupal or WordPress.

So, how to integrate your HubSpot with other CMSs such as Joomla, Drupal, Magento or WordPress?

In this article, we walk you through the process of linking your website to HubSpot’s marketing software.

But first, let’s discuss some essentials that you need to know.

The HubSpot Integration Strategy

If you’re hosting your website or blog on Joomla, Drupal, Magento or WordPress and you’d like to exploit the advanced analytics that are provided by HubSpot, then you have to install the HubSpot tracking code. This tracking code captures data about your visitors and sends it to HubSpot Analytics. Consequently, HubSpot Analytics helps you understand your user behavior which allows you to make smarter marketing decisions.

In a nutshell the primary aims of this code are to:

  • See whether your website is getting the traffic and attracting the right leads
  • Find out what you can do to improve or promote them
  • Provide you with erudite lead intelligence to help you improve your customer experience
