HubSpot CMS vs. WordPress

25 Compelling Reasons to Switch

If the main reason you're using WordPress is because your web developer was biased towards it or told you it was the best, well maybe it's time to reconsider. 


Experience Matters

WordPress has become the go-to choice for small businesses looking to establish a basic online presence. It’s a popular low-cost option for individuals who want to build their own website or blog. It is also popular with website developers who recognize the profit to be made by rapidly cranking out websites by jamming customer-provided content into an existing template or theme.

As an agency with over 30 years of experience, we have been building websites since, well... about the time the web was born. We have built websites using most of the popular platforms (Drupal, Joomla!, Wordpress, SquareSpace, NationBuilder, etc.) without bias or preference.

However, today, HubSpot CMS has emerged as not only a serious contender for "best CMS out there," but one that is constantly evolving and improving. HubSpot’s CMS software is currently the #1 web content management system in G2, and 96% of reviewers give it either four or five stars. As a result, we are now total HubSpot CMS fans and prefer it over all other CMS platforms, including WordPress.

You DO have a choice (and it's a dandy)

Unlike other CMSes, HubSpot was built from the ground up to integrate seamlessly with all other HubSpot solutions (CRM, Sales, Service, Operations). This affords HubSpot a level of simplicity and scalability that’s not possible with other products that require integrating several disparate tools to accomplish what you could with HubSpot. But HubSpot's CMS is a great stand-alone CMS also.

HubSpot’s CMS Hub ranks higher than WordPress in key areas and stands on its own merits in any CMS-to-CMS comparison. Here are just a few key capabilities that HubSpot CMS excels in, that SHOULD make your decision to switch compelling:

  • Enhanced Personalization: Deliver personalized and unforgettable experiences for every visitor to your website.
  • Drives Results: Discover the power of your website as it collaborates seamlessly with your marketing, sales, and service teams to deliver outstanding results for your business.
  • More Secure: Your website's safety and reliability are HubSpot's top priorities, and is supported by a dedicated team of security experts available 24/7.
  • AI Content Assistance: Experience the power of AI-driven content creation, all from within the CMS.
