One of the biggest digital disruptors in the field of marketing, Hubspot has grown exponentially after being set up in 2006 by two students from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since then it has gone on to become the standard bearer of social media marketing, content marketing, and campaign automation.

Hubspot has become the tool of choice for marketers at small to large-sized companies globally. It serves a variety of functions and is scalable to the requirements of each particular customer. This all-in-one approach has helped the company achieved its current position as a market leader in the field of marketing software

Hubspot is used by companies for marketing automation, campaign management, lead generation, landing page generation, marketing analytics, search marketing and more. The unique selling point of Hubspot is that it provides an overall solution that can be utilized for a variety of purposes, thus helping it beat off competition from companies that provide specialized products for each domain.

Any company in the marketing technology sector, whether just starting out or in a relatively good position already, needs to recognize Hubspot as the apex predator in the field.

Hubspot also ranks very high on our exhaustive list of marketing automation tech providers. We have a list of 17,500+ customers using Husbpot for this function. 27 customers have switched to Hubspot over the past month as well, mostly from the US, UK, Australia and Canada. However, their attrition rate was higher, with 36 customers opting out of using Hubspot for their marketing automation needs. There are a number of Hubspot renewals coming up in the coming few months, which presents a good opportunity for potential competition.

When it comes to Marketing Analytics, we have a list of well over 21,000 Hubspot customers. Some of the main competition that it is facing in this domain comes from the likes of Pardot, Sumo, Marketo and Heap. Hubspot also has a much higher attrition rate for this function as compared to others. In the past month, it has seen 24 companies end their association, with just 13 new companies coming in.

Landing Page generation has been one of the biggest selling points for Hubspot over the years, and we have more than 21,000 customers listed who are using it for exactly this purpose. Here, the company is facing tough competition from the Israeli cloud-based web development platform Wix, which has cornered a significant share of the market. Two other key competitors here are Optimizely and Pardot, for whom we have 16,000 and 11,000 customers listed respectively.

Social Media management is another of Hubspot's strong features. Slintel has more than 14,000 customers listed, but there have been 73 deletions in the past month.
