Considered Both Products
HubSpot Marketing Hub
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
I've used and evaluated several other marketing automation tools in addition to HubSpot Marketing Hub. Some of the notable ones include Marketo, Pardot, and Eloqua.

Each of these platforms has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, and I've found that they can be better …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
Better support.
User experience.
Friendly UI.
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot [Marketing Hub] hands down! From the user interface all the way down to programmatic details, HubSpot [Marketing Hub] is leaps ahead over Pardot. I mean, what kind of system can't handle prospect time-zone sending? Pardot, that's who. HubSpot [Marketing Hub] is …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot is a middle of the road platform compared to other similar platforms that can be overly simple or overly complex. HubSpot is a great starting point for organizations wanting to invest in inbound marketing and/or marketing automation without having to invest heavily in …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot is by far the most user-friendly, which means it's more likely to be fully deployed by customers. We help people move from both of the mentioned competing platforms because the user experience is so difficult that the products aren't being used.
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot is more lightweight than Salesforce and Pardot, but also easier to use and manage. While I've found Pardot to be highly unreliable, HubSpot's performance never disappointed—for what it is. Again, it's a simpler tool, but sometimes that's all that's needed. For a small …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot does a number of marketing activities all in one, easy platform. We can do things like email, blog, lead nurturing, keyword research, reports, buyer personas, etc.
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
We chose Hubspot over Pardot due to the all round functionality of Hubspot. Pardot specialises in Marketing Automation, but you get that and much more with Hubspot and the prices are comparable. We needed a solution that enabled the whole marketing team to improve their …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
Hubspot is really well optimized and easy to manage. There is also a lot of [content in the] Learning Center to learn how to use the tool better. Hubspot has a great reputation in the industry. Hubspot was doing all the things we wanted such as lead qualification, landing …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
There are many great marketing automation platforms and I am always interested in evaluating them. I often find, however, that the competitors' assumptions regarding Hubspot's capabilities (or lack thereof) are misinformed or simply wrong. I have seen interesting features in …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
In the past, I've worked with companies that use both Marketo and Pardot. Pardot is an absolutely horrible solution, I don't know why anyone would ever buy it or use it. There are many way better options that are much cheaper than Pardot, so why even bother with their solution? …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot is a better all-around automation solution for our small marketing department. It helps us function as a design team, social media managers, a copy writing team and campaign strategists when we need to have those hats on. It makes switching back and forth easy and helps …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot appeared to be the most user-friendly, with intuitive interfaces and comprehensive training. We also liked the level of support offered by HubSpot when setting up the system, as well as learning how to be good marketers.
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
We previously had Pardot and struggled with some of their tools, like building new landing pages. We do not have an IT department and I only have basic coding knowledge so we had to pay for another software to build our landing pages. Hubspot allows us to do everything we need …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
I've used several other marketing automation platforms and HubSpot is the most robust and easy to use in it's price range.
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
Hubspot is more simple, and because it's a lot more simple and clear it's more professional. Hubspot also offers training as I mentioned in some other sections, the training is so useful in my every day work life and makes you a lot more valuable as a business person. Hubspot …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
  • Much more complete and professional.
  • Reporting is much stronger and a lot more geared towards inbound marketing, rather than general marketing automation. It's a more complete solution with everything you need in regards to inbound marketing, whereas the others all miss some …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot competitors don't stand a chance against them. The immense amount of integrations the platform offers, the full circle marketing efforts it offers in the software, and its continuous improvements make it a worthwhile product. I'd suggest doing your research before …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
HubSpot is all around a more robust platform. It offers a lot more components to the marketing automation process and tracking needs. While many small business teams would benefit from products like Act-On and MailChimp, EMMA (who I also love), and Pardot, HubSpot is the clear …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
Hubspot seemed more intuitive than Pardot. Plus when I sat down with the sales team, they really helped me understand how Hubspot would fit our business as opposed to Pardot. Their sales pitch didn't cover any of the aspects I told them were important. It felt like they were on …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
The software seemed better up front and they have a have wealth of knowledge on marketing of all kinds, as well as sales. HubSpot makes themselves seem like real people doing something they are passionate about and want to continue to do better. They want to see you succeed, …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
First just to note: Pardot is just marketing automation and does not include a CMS or something in which you can build and manage a website. In addition, at least when I used it, Pardot doesn't have a blog portion to it so you'd still have to have your blog in something like …
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
Eloqua, Pardot, and Marketo
Chose HubSpot Marketing Hub
Hubspot is much more feature rich and covers all areas of marketing, which allows it to offer better insights on what's working well, and what's not working so well in your marketing efforts. Hubspot is also easier to use than Pardot. Support and training is far better with …
Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
I think that all of the marketing platforms I have evaluated and used in the past serve different markets and purposes. Salesforce Marketing Cloud was more palatable to our team because of our existing tech stack where we had Salesforce CRM already deployed and in use. Compared …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Hubspot is more user friendly, more intuitive, and has functionality built in from the start that allows you to get things off the ground faster than SFMC. I use SFMC because that is the current platform at my employer.
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Salesforce Marketing Cloud is a more comprehensive product than HubSpot Marketing Cloud. It integrates better with multiple channels, is a powerful audience builder, and is an efficient AI. However, Salesforce Marketing Cloud is also more expensive and requires Salesforce.com …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Salesforce Marketing Cloud stands out for its comprehensive features, scalability, and seamless integration capabilities. Compared to other platforms, its unified suite of tools for email, social media, mobile, and advertising enables streamlined cross-channel campaign …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Not to sound like I am completely against Salesforce Marketing Cloud, I believe HubSpot has worked alot on their marketing platform to simplify the interface along with keeping the rich functions a marketing platform would want. Campaign monitor is a bit more basic, but perfect …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Overall, 80 percent of the features and boiler plate and standard across all these tools. Salesforce leads in integrations and global scalability. But lacks in User interface and ease of use.

Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
We use these both in conjunction together now rather than rivals as the data that can be held in both does differ slightly and one platform email maker is slightly better so we do a lot of the creative in one platform and then have it link in and have all the data flow into the …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
If you use salesforce for your sales team, Pardot is the best option because it integrates the best. It allows you to notify sales team members more easily and reports in SalesForce are easier to create. HubSpot offers a better all-around marketing solution, but doesn't …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
I haven't chosen Pardot over Eloqua, as i stand by my opinion that Pardot is better for database sizes of up to a million, which for Eloqua i would say goes to multiple millions of contacts. Their database set up is just a bit more intuitive and i believe offers more, which …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Pardot is a better price point compared to some of the other B2B platforms.

Some of the functionality may be lacking compared to some of the other B2B, and definitely B2C platforms.
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Pardot is pretty much on the same level. We chose Pardot because it integrates directly with Salesforce. We already use Contentful for landing pages, so we weren't too worried about using Pardot's builder. I really liked the simplicity of the visual email workflows. Coming …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Pardot is very similar to HubSpot in that it is easy to use and customize. They are also comparable in price. The main decision maker in this regard will be what you're using for a CRM. Pardot is much more intuitive than Microsoft products and, with unlimited users, makes it …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Pardot was less expensive than HubSpot or Marketo. Compared to Act-On, it was similar in price but had more features and the integration with Salesforce was better and natively supported. Compared to SharpSpring, it doesn't have the same strong features, but the integration …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
As stated earlier, Pardot is definitely the leader in marketing automation. In comparison to other competitors, it's the most expensive, but it provides the most efficient data for larger organizations. While it can be difficult to onboard, the customer service is excellent and …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Pardot is a VERY flexible tool. Most have thought of it as a very adolescent tool, but it holds its own against Marketo in the VAST majority of areas. You DON'T need a near full-time developer to keep it working (unlike Marketo). Act-on was limited in what it could do, HubSpot
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
As Salesforce users, Pardot's integration was native and, of course, much more aligned to the Salesforce. We have been able to improve our reporting and rely on our data more since the two are in the same tech platform. With the new Pardot Lightning App, we've been able to do …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Pardot out-ranks the competition in regards to the integration with Salesforce. It is hard to beat the ability to use your already-made customer profiles and contact information in your marketing campaigns. Where it is lacking is the usability. MailChimp is a much more user …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
We selected Pardot primarily because it is native to Salesforce and we felt that long term it would be the better solution for our needs, based on our commitment to Salesforce. HubSpot seemed to be targeted more towards a small business, based on our experience using that …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Have used Hubspot and it is 100% made for marketers. The email editor in Pardot is laughable. Have also looked at https://autopilothq.com/ which has a better user experience and more capabilities for the modern marketer.
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
We are moving to Hubspot due to a complete failure from Pardot.
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
I used Marketo and hated it. It was difficult to use, required too many steps to execute a program, and the customer service was terrible. I actually don't know why anyone would use it when options like Pardot and Hubspot are available. Pardot is exactly the opposite - easy to …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
HubSpot: Pardot wins (by a huger margin) on both product and customer service.

Eloqua/Marketo/Silverpop - have used all three of these. They are solid solutions but integration with Salesforce is not as tight or reliable. In addition I found clients have a longer time to …
Chose Salesforce Marketing Cloud
Pardot syncs more seamlessly with Salesforce so when new leads come in, my team better understands where they came from, which in turn allows us to better qualify them, manage them and nurture them. Pardot has a higher email deliverability rate than HubSpot which has lead to an …

As I said previously, I was not a fan at the beginning because, like everyone, I don't take change so well. Once I started following leads through HubSpot Marketing Hub, I integrated it with my email and created templates for what I needed, I started to see the positives immediately. My time working was better spent as I eliminated time put in routine tasks. I was able to track all communication in HubSpot Marketing Hub, we created systems in the office assigning tasks to one another and, through HubSpot Marketing Hub, our leads were able to book meetings in my calendar automatically. To be honest, if you are in sales and marketing, I cannot think of scenarios where HubSpot Marketing Hub cannot help. All I would like to say is, when using templates, pay attention to where you send them - you may need some personalization. I would encourage the management of HubSpot Marketing Hub to create short tutorials for beginners like me who need to configure and start using various features: setting up deals, templates, and dashboards.

Salesforce Marketing Cloud does an excellent job at collecting and storing leads. Once the leads are qualified by workflows and automations established against your qualifiers, you can begin to segment, target, send communication, and track the efficacy of your campaigns. Being that Salesforce Marketing Cloud is an extension of Salesforce CRM, there is little work that needs to be done to ensure that your SQL are migrated to your CRM once they are ready to do so. The seamlessness between the two systems is paramount to the success of our organization.

Pros
HubSpot
  • All-in-one software - the main thing HubSpot does well is the breadth of functionality.
  • Easy of use - personally, I find it more intuitive than Marketo, which is the other MAP that I know well.
  • Ads - I like that we can drill down on ads by channel, ad group, campaign, and even create and see performance data at each level.

  • Filter relevant content so you can priorize those that are more relevant and resolve it first
  • Measure the traffic in the different social networks, as well as the response rate, average response time and other relevant metrics
  • Configure automation rules to order the work of those who must interact with the customer

Cons
HubSpot
  • While Hubspot has added some collaborative tools, I think this could improve. I'd like to see more options to comment on emails and ways of being able to share out changes as well as approval channels.
  • The ability to update ads via the calendar is pretty cumbersome. There's no good way to bulk edit or update. You have go into each one individually.
  • Real time edits would be nice. If you have multiple people working on the same thing, you'll get kicked out and your changes might not be saved.

Salesforce
  • The email builder does not offer any way to catch/check bugs across different email service providers
  • Creating SQL is not as easy as drag-and-drop; a lot of technical knowledge is required
  • Salesforce Marketing Cloud is sold as a marketing tool, but to be honest, you need a LOT of technical IT support to run the tool
  • Einstein metrics are across the board; if you have multiple audiences in one instance of Salesforce Marketing Cloud you can't segment the data.

Our business relies on the HubSpot platform to manage our marketing, sales and CRM processes. HubSpot marketing automation helps us define our activities and streamlines them in a cohesive and efficient way.

As of right now we have not seen any other program that integrates as seamlessly into our Salesforce platform. We have barely scratched the surface of all the features and use cases.

You won't find another solution that has as many features as Salesforce Marketing Cloud Interaction Studio. We all know Salesforce, we all know how big they are and it's not for nothing... Their tools do most of the things you want, need and even imagine. Using it is complicated, but the usability is infinite.

Reliability and Availability
HubSpot
They have had issues with system availability over the course of days. Sometimes the system is unusable, other times updates simply take a long time to show up. It's better now but, from a reliaibility standpoint, HubSpot is not Salesforce.com yet. Still great software though.

Upgrades and timing of the upgrades were communicated well and planned during off hours for our work. If we did have a campaign scheduled during that time, it would kick-off after the system was back active. There were a few unplanned system down times, but it was a rare occurrence and those times were also short in duration.

Performance
HubSpot
With all the new features in HubSpot, the system can get a tad slow sometimes... That said, most of the time it is lightning fast and I have no problems. Because most of the integrations are API, they silently work in the background. I have not had trouble with lag due to HubSpot integration

Though the make up of MA apps is not built this way today, it would be nice to see them become more real-time. The integration between Salesforce and Pardot is not a true real-time integration. If I modify something in Salesforce, those changes are not automatically reflected in Pardot immediately. There is a delay of about 15 minutes before the systems sync. This delay, although not long, is less than ideal We would love the systems to be integrated real time such that changes are propagated from one system to the other immediately.

They're fast and knowledgeable. You will always know what's the status of your request and they usually follow up with phone calls to ask you questions or provide updates. Sometimes it takes them a couple of days to investigate, especially if you have custom "situations" like my company usually does but at least they are very good at managing time expectations.

I did the 2-day classroom at HubSpot's corporate office in Cambridge. First off, it was amazing to see their corporate office in general. They have such a cool office environment.

I went through Inbound Marketing University in 2006. Great training and helped my transition from traditional (outbound) marketing to inbound marketing that I've been able to apply to a number of businesses from wastewater and water reuse, to professional services and SaaS. Share information of value to build awareness and trust. Answer customers' questions in a transparent way to generate more qualified leads. Understand the difference between a marketing qualified lead and a sales qualified lead and put together a lead nurturing program. Your sales and marketing efforts will see significant ROI.

Pardot's online training touches on all topics briefly and vaguely without much indepth exploration into how a final outcome could look, such as Nurturing Campaigns, Email templates, landing page templates, etc... The only true way to uncover Pardot's full capabilities is to have Front End design and coding experience. Without this key skill set, I would not recommend Pardot to another business.

My biggest piece of advice for those who are implementing Hubspot is that you need to devote the time up front and learn how to use the product. Once you learn how to use Hubspot, it will be much more effective as well as much easier to use in the long run

From an IT perspective, once you set up the Javascript beacon and start collecting data there is a waiting game. During this time you can start labeling your site actions which can be labor intensive for a single person, but you don't really have the final end-users on the platform yet. We did a lot of training so users were experienced, but it wasn't until they had their first tasks to accomplish that they started using the system and had questions. I'd recommend setting up some immediate goals for an end-user to start segmenting for the purpose of displaying message campaigns so you can jump start end-user action.

HubSpot is addressing this more and more. Currently you can assign tasks to designated sales teams, which grow as you grow. They've added free baseline products for those just getting started.
