HubSpot is an all-in-one platform. While it's unlikely you'll ever use even close to the entire suite of features, how can you be sure you are using it to its potential?

Helping you on your HubSpot Journey

Review your HubSpot Portal

Here at XEN, we work closely with mid-large B2B technology companies, helping them on their HubSpot journey to:

  • Start: Setup a new HubSpot hub or portal
  • Review: Audit and improve an existing HubSpot portal
  • Grow: Scale their business growth via marketing campaigns built in HubSpot

On this page you'll find details of our Review offering; the HubSpot HealthCheck.

What is the HubSpot HealthCheck?

The HubSpot HealthCheck is an audit of your HubSpot portal and recommendations to improve it.

Who is the HubSpot HealthCheck for?

The HealthCheck is ideal for mid to large companies with a HubSpot portal that they have been using for at least 6 months. 

You might be considering a HealthCheck if you:

  • Purchased HubSpot but you aren't sure if you are using the right tools or not?
  • Would like to understand more about what's been set up and whether that's correct?
  • Are new to the organisation and HubSpot and would like to know how to maintain your account's existing set-up?
  • Are worried that you are not getting enough value out of HubSpot (not utilising some tools or features)?
  • Are concerned that your HubSpot portal has gotten out of hand with no standardised processes or naming conventions?

HubSpot HealthCheck Review

Another happy client LG Energy

Impressed with XEN’s combination of strategic, technical and implementation skills

We initially engaged XEN to assist LG Solar & Energy to improve our lgenergy website SEO, however the project quickly grew to include strategy across paid and social channels as well, with a focus on driving leads.

With the site now gaining 1100 visits per day and providing more than 1200 new leads per month, the project has been a great success.

It has been a vital part of our 35% sales growth , compared to last year.

We've been impressed with XEN's combination of strategic, technical and implementation skills, and have now introduced them into other divisions across LG.

How long does it take?

Once we have commenced your HubSpot HealthCheck it usually takes between one and two weeks to prepare the initial report, and schedule the first one-to-one call with you. For more complex portals (with lots of Sales Pipelines and workflows) it usually takes between two and four weeks.

What's included?

The HealthCheck includes 2 hours of one-to-one consulting via zoom with one of XEN's Certified HubSpot Consultants, where they review your HubSpot Portal, grade each of the items in the HealthCheck checklist, and provide recommendations for improvement.

Which HubSpot hubs does this require?

If you have a HubSpot Marketing Pro or Enterprise portal, this is ideal for you. If you have HubSpot Sales Pro or Enterprise as well, this is even better.

Do you have a brochure I can download?

Who is this ideally suited for?

Th HubSpot HealthCheck is suitable for mid-large companies who have been using HubSpot for at least 6 months.

It is especially ideal for companies who are using most of the HubSpot functions (as opposed to only a few items).

If it not ideal for new HubSpot customers, or small businesses who are only using a few HubSpot functions.

What is the waitlist waiting time?

We typically advise a waiting time of 3-4 weeks before we can commence your HealthCheck, however, this depends on how many are in the queue ahead of you, as well as the size of those portals.

I'm already working with a HubSpot Agency, is this a problem?

If you're already working with a Hubspot Partner Agency, then as a first step we suggest you chat with them about doing a review of your portal - getting us involved will probably just complicate things.

But as with all things... it depends. It will depend what you've engaged your existing agency to do - it might just be strategy or specific campaigns. In cases like that, bringing us in may be useful - but check with your agency first - we don't want to be treading on anyone's toes.

This sounds like a HubSpot audit, is that correct?

Yes, thinking of this as an audit of your HubSpot portal is a good approach. The goal is to highlight issues and opportunities, to enable you to get the most out of your HubSpot investment.

What happens after the HealthCheck is complete?

You'll have a list of valuable recommendations to improve and optimise your HubSpot portal. The list will be prioritised so you know what needs to be done first. We can help you implement the recommendations via our HubSpot On Demand service.
