HubSpot developers are in high demand right now. It can be difficult to find someone who’s experienced, accessible, on-time, and easy to work with. But what if you could find a development partner that can help you achieve your goals, without the stress? This page will tell you exactly what to look for in a HubSpot developer (and how to avoid any pitfalls in the process).
We asked our clients (Marketing VPs & Marketing Directors) what they think is important when looking to hire a HubSpot CMS developer. If you’re a marketer looking for a HubSpot developer that’ll deliver the goods (while making your life easier), then you’ll want to read every word of what comes next…
“Easy to edit page content”
The right developer will create your template in a no hassle way so that you (or anyone on your team) will be able to edit images, videos, text, CTAs, and links.
You’ll be able to make changes in a matter of minutes. No coding involved.
Imagine being in a meeting and the boss wants to change the content on a certain page. You can have those changes live before the meeting even ends!
“Webpages look amazing on all devices”
Your customers are going to be viewing your website on their monitor, laptop, tablet and phone. You can’t allow them to have a bad experience on any of those devices. They might head for the exit, never to be heard from again.
At Useractiv, we use a proprietary system to make sure your page looks great on all major devices & browsers. So you can be sure that your future and current customers are always seeing exactly what you want them to see.
“This completely new HubSpot tool lets me quickly add modules to pages”
HubSpot’s “Flexible Column” layouts let you take control of the modules you want shown on each page.
Easily drag & drop modules into your pages to get the layout and functionality you need (no coding required).
Going from design to code:
What most HubSpot developers get wrong…
Designers and developers are unique from one another. You see, designers are considered “right brain” people, whereas developers are usually “left brain” people. Right brain people tend to be more artistic and left brain people are more methodical, or logic-based.
It’s important to work with a developer partner that can bridge the gap between design and development. They should understand the language of design and the language of code. It’s the best way to make sure your HubSpot templates are coded to match the design.
How to guarantee a quick turnaround: Making sure your developer delivers on-time and on-budget
It’s important to share your goals, timelines, and budget with your development partner.
An experienced, professional developer will be honest with you, and tell you whether it’s realistic or not. They’ll suggest an estimated time frame and honor it.
The first project you do with a developer should make it clear if they’re true to their word (or not).
Over time, you’ll build trust. Delays may occasionally happen on either side. But as long as things are getting done and moving at the right pace, you’ll know you’ve got someone good to work with in the long run.
Is your developer quick to respond (especially in an emergency)?
In today’s connected world, there’s no excuse for a vendor ghosting you.
For fast messaging, there’s Slack and Teams. And we’ve all got email on our phones. Everyone’s busy. Even with these new communication tools. But if a developer values you as a customer, they’re always going to be listening for you so that they can respond quickly.
It all begins before you’re even a client. How quickly do they respond to your inquiry, RFP, or quote request?
If a developer isn’t timely in getting back to you during the sales process, there’s a good chance they won’t be responsive when you’re trying to get work done.
Remember, your website is your 24/7 salesperson. And it helps to have a developer that’s there for you as much as humanly possible to support your efforts.
“The #1 thing to look for in a developer”
I hear this from marketing directors all the time. Their ideal development partner understands exactly what needs to be done. They need very little direction. And your developer will ask the right questions if there are any doubts.
This understanding comes from experience. Building hundreds of custom templates over the years. Working with dozens of marketing professionals at many companies.
It also helps to hire a developer that has a marketing background and a deep understanding of how the HubSpot marketing platform works.
How to secure a friendly pro…
Doesn’t it make your job easier when you find someone who’s professional, responsive, and friendly?
If you’re going to source a HubSpot developer outside your company (as opposed to hiring an employee), it’s important to keep in mind that this type of relationship is usually remote. So it’s always a good idea to have a quick chat before getting started with a development partner.
