What is HubSpot Onboarding?

As a HubSpot Diamond Partner, we've been mastering the art of onboarding clients for years. Discover the ins and outs of our unique onboarding process and what sets us apart.


With over 184,000 customers spanning 120 countries, HubSpot has solidified its position as a leading Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform. Its extensive array of features empowers businesses to not only attract, engage, and delight customers but also to scale and thrive. As a proud HubSpot Diamond Partner, we’ve spent years perfecting the art of onboarding, and it’s something we’re very passionate about. In this article, we'll dive into the essence of onboarding and why it's a cornerstone of our commitment at Spitfire Inbound.

What is HubSpot Onboarding  

Onboarding onto a software is a process which is all about equipping users with the knowledge and skills needed to use the system. However, onboarding should not be mistaken for training, it’s about helping you develop the right strategy for the use of the platform, which will work best for your business goals. For us, onboarding is about integrating your business philosophy with the tools and strategy to foster holistic growth.

What to Expect During the Onboarding Process

During the Spitfire onboarding process, you'll be guided by on of our HubSpot Onboarding Specialists, who is an expert in both the technical and strategic aspects of setting up and utilising HubSpot. With extensive experience implementing HubSpot for clients, they offer practical guidance to support new users effectively.

What makes our onboarding process different is that it involves more than just getting you familiar with your new software; it's about helping you develop a strategy for using the platform which aligns with your business needs. We’ll even throw in some Eureka moments.

Your HubSpot Onboarding Specialist will design an onboarding package for you based on:

  • Your unique business goals
  • The HubSpot products you purchased
  • Your current technology stack, and how it integrates with HubSpot

The packages include:

  • Initial Kick-off session to understand your business and project needs
  • Regular online session with your HubSpot onboarding specialist and a customised project plan based on key goals
  • Assistance with the initial setup of the system
  • Development of key documentation for long-term optimisation
  • 1 additional Q&A session - done when you have actively worked on the portal for at least 2 weeks.

Why we're passionate about Onboarding

We believe that onboarding extends far beyond its technical aspects. Successful onboarding is the foundation of building lasting and fruitful partnerships with our clients. Here are a few key reasons why we’re so passionate about this essential process:

  1. Customised Solutions

Every business is unique, with its own set of goals, challenges, and aspirations. We understand that there's no one-size-fits-all solution in the world of inbound.  That's why we’re deeply committed to tailoring our onboarding experience to your specific needs. By diving deep into your business model, objectives, and existing technology stack, we ensure that the onboarding journey is finely tuned to help you achieve your goals.

  1. Knowledge is Power

We firmly believe that empowering you with the knowledge and skills you’ll need to navigate the HubSpot ecosystem independently is the key to long-term success. Through our onboarding process, we provide you with the tools to not only operate HubSpot effectively but also to understand the 'why' and 'how' behind each action. This knowledge empowers you to make informed decisions, maximise your ROI, and adapt to changing market dynamics.

  1. Building Trust and Relationships

Trust is the bedrock of any successful business relationship. By investing time and resources into onboarding, we aim to build trust from the very beginning. We want you to feel confident in our expertise, our commitment to your success, and our ability to guide you through the complexities of marketing, sales, and service automation, processes, and setup.

  1. Long-Term Growth

Our focus isn't just on immediate results; it's on fostering long-term growth. By providing a robust onboarding experience, we set you on a trajectory to continuously evolve and optimise your marketing, sales, and service strategies. We’re invested in your journey and are here to support you as your business expands and evolves.

  1. A Partnership, Not Just a Service

We see you as a partner, not just a customer. Onboarding is the beginning of our collaborative journey towards achieving your business goals. By engaging with you at this foundational stage, we lay the groundwork for a strong, enduring partnership where we grow together.
