In this guide, you'll learn all about HubSpot's Content Hub, including the key benefits, features and pricing, what's changing for CMS Hub users, and how Content Hub differs from Marketing Hub. We also provide actionable tips on how marketers can get the most out of HubSpot Content Hub.

In recent years, the customer journey has changed considerably. Many people now consume a variety of content across multiple platforms, from websites and social media to podcasts and review portals.

For marketers, this shift means that they need to meet buyers at different touchpoints in various formats. With the constant need for unique, high-quality content across multiple channels, efficiency in content creation and content management is key to success.

To streamline content creation and management, HubSpot launched the new Content Hub in early April 2024. Content Hub is an all-in-one, AI-powered content marketing software that helps marketers manage the growing demands of content creation and management. It provides personalised content experiences tailored to every step of the customer journey, all from one central platform.

In this guide, you'll learn all about HubSpot's Content Hub, what's changing, including the benefits, features and pricing, and how it can revolutionise your marketing efforts. Let's dive in!

HubSpot’s new Content Hub: what’s changing?

 

CMS Hub

One of the biggest changes is that CMS Hub, formerly a standalone offering, will now be part of the new Content Hub. HubSpot will no longer refer to CMS Hub and the website tools will be placed as tools within Content Hub. 

This consolidation brings together website management, blogs, landing pages, and more under a unified platform, marking a significant departure from the previous model that has been in place for the last 15 years.

So, what will change for HubSpot users who currently use CMS Hub? With the launch of Content Hub, nothing will change for existing CMS Hub customers. If they are currently using CMS Hub and want to stay with it, they can renew their CMS Hub membership, but they will not have the new Content Hub features. If they want the new Content Hub features, they will need to upgrade to the new Content Hub. 

Another major change is that the landing pages and blogs wil be located in the Content Hub and no longer in the Marketing Hub. We will explore the difference between Marketing Hub and Content Hub further on and also discuss HubSpot's Marketing+ Bundle offer.

With these changes, HubSpot is addressing the current complexities of content marketing by offering an all-in-one solution to optimise content creation and management. But what exactly are the key benefits of the new HubSpot Content Hub?

Key benefits of HubSpot Content Hub

It’s clear that HubSpot's Content Hub offers a range of benefits tailored to the evolving needs of marketers to drive success across the entire customer journey.

Let’s have a look at the key benefits:

  • Personalised content experiences: Content Hub aims to enable marketers to create personalised content experiences that resonate with their target audience at every touchpoint of the customer journey.

  • Save time and increase team efficiency: Content Hub features for content creation and management, such as the repurposing of content and content governance features, enable marketers to optimise their workflows and increase their team's productivity.

  • AI-powered tools: Content Hub leverages AI to automate and optimise various aspects of content marketing, which means marketers can use AI tools, from AI-driven content creation to idea generation, to improve their content strategies while saving valuable time.

  • Standardised campaigns: As a marketer with a team operating across multiple regions, I understand the challenges of coordinating marketing efforts across different channels and touchpoints. HubSpot's Content Hub is designed to overcome these challenges and facilitate the creation of cohesive marketing campaigns that work across multiple locations and channels.

    By standardising processes for creating and distributing content on one platform, marketers can ensure consistency and alignment across their marketing activities, improving brand messaging and customer engagement.

  • Increase efficiency and save resources: By automating repetitive tasks, optimising content performance and providing actionable insights, Content Hub aims to enable marketers to do more with less and maximise the impact of their content marketing efforts.

In summary, HubSpot's Content Hub provides marketers with a comprehensive solution for creating, managing, and optimising content throughout the customer journey.

Now let's take a closer look at Content Hub's features and tools and their use cases for marketers.

Content Hub's features, tools and use cases: everything marketers need to know

The main use cases of HubSpot Content Hub are content creation and content management: the platform enables marketers to focus on creating personalised content experiences that drive engagement while also streamlining content management processes for maximum efficiency and effectiveness.

Let's delve into Content Hub's main features before we dive into specific tools and their use cases.

1. Create content

Overall, HubSpot’s Content Hub is designed to optimise the content creation process and help marketers deliver high-quality, relevant content that drives engagement and creates a deeper connection with their audience.

Let’s look at the specific features for content creation in more detail:

  • Website optimisation
    Content Hub offers several tools and features to optimise your website. Content Hub’s Website Builder tool empowers marketers to create and modify web pages, ensuring a seamless user experience and driving conversions with drag-and-drop editing and customisable themes.

    Additionally, Content Hub’s smart content feature enables marketers to personalise the images and content on your website by verticals or other segments to create a targeted experience for specific customers without compromising the experience for the rest of your customers.

    You can also create landing pages and forms with simple drag-and-drop editors as well as effective CTA’s that you can test and optimise.

  • Content and image creation with AI
    Using HubSpot’s AI chatbot ChatSpot, Content Hub includes an AI-powered Blog Post Generator that simplifies the process of generating engaging blog content.

    Marketers can generate topics, titles, and targeted keywords, allowing for a steady flow of high-quality content. Content Hub's AI Image Generator also enables the creation of custom images that complement your brand's messaging across various platforms.

    Furthermore, Content Hub's AI Translations feature facilitates seamless translation of content into multiple languages, enabling you to connect with diverse audiences on a global scale.

  • Content repurposing strategies
    Maximising the value of existing content through repurposing is a cost-effective strategy. Content Hub's Content Remix feature enables marketers to repurpose content for various channels and formats, including during written text into podcasts.

  • Enhanced accessibility
    Embracing audio content with Content Hub's Post Narration module ensures inclusivity and accessibility for all audience members, catering to those with visual impairments or audio content preferences.

  • Brand consistency
    Maintaining a consistent brand voice across all channels is crucial for building trust and recognition. Content Hub's Brand Voice feature allows you to define and reinforce your brand's tone and style, fostering consistency and cohesion in your messaging.

  • HubSpot’s App marketplace
    HubSpot’s Apps Marketplace that includes apps that can be connected to HubSpot also live in the Content Hub. The marketplace connects HubSpot with content management systems such as Wordpress and Webflow, as well as design apps such as Canva and video hosting apps such as Zoom, On24 and HotJar.

2. Manage content

Content Hub is designed not only to simplify content creation, but also streamline content management. Let’s take a closer look at some of the tools:

  • Content governance
    With Content Approvals & Partitioning, you can ensure governance for web pages, blog posts and landing pages with the right approvals and permissions, making it easy to collaborate with your team by requesting changes and granting approvals directly in HubSpot. This keeps irrelevant assets out of sight so teams stay focused and efficient.

  • SEO optimisation
    With Content Hub's SEO recommendations, marketers can effectively optimise their website for search engines by identifying content issues and taking actionable steps to solve them.

  • Reporting and analytics
    HubSpot’s reporting and analytics features will live under Content Hub, allowing marketers to evaluate the impact of marketing efforts across various channels and to create contact attribution reports that identify top-performing pages for lead gen.

  • Video management
    In Content Hub, videos live at the same place as content, allowing marketers to embed videos into content, with the addition of forms and CTA’s directly from the module. You can also access reporting on video views per contact to analyse what is resonating the most with your target audience.

  • Dynamic content management
    With Content Hub's Dynamic Content feature, marketers can create dynamic elements such as product listings, real estate catalogues, and employee directories to facilitate content management. Updates made in one place are automatically reflected across all impacted content, saving time and ensuring consistency.

  • Memberships & gated content
    Content Hub allows you to engage your audience with exclusive content and generate higher-quality leads through Memberships and Gated Content features. You can also use the content library to offer exclusive digital assets, such as audio files, video files, PDFs and more, by requiring a login.

In summary, Content Hub equips marketers with a robust set of tools and capabilities to optimise and streamline their content marketing and achieve tangible results across the customer journey.
