Another INBOUND has come and gone!
From riveting spotlights to engaging debates and meetups, HubSpot did not disappoint in their second all-virtual event. One evident theme throughout the three-day event was the shift to making everything from marketing to sales more “customer-centric.” This theme particularly resonated with HubSpot’s product announcements from the event. Take a look at how the newest additions to HubSpot’s ever-evolving growth stack will make catering to customers easier than ever.
The Biggest Announcements from INBOUND 2021

Now available in beta to U.S. HubSpot users, you can give your clients’ customers an easy way to spend everything from one-time payments to recurring monthly memberships.
Have you ever wanted to test out a theme on a client’s website without having to go live? What about an integration? With HubSpot’s new sandbox environments, you and your developers can experiment with changes in Marketing, Sales, Service, and Ops Hub Enterprise accounts before deploying them into production. That way, you’ll know for sure everything is up to par for your clients at all times, helping to create a trusted partnership!
