Working with a variety of clients over the years, we see one very common challenge when it comes to maintaining a robust marketing engine, and that’s content creation.

Establishing and sustaining a strong online brand presence demands a continuous stream of fresh content. That’s where things can get problematic: with all the tools out there, it can seem hard to know where to turn. But in truth, it’s not.

In terms of a powerful content creation ally, there’s no comparison to HubSpot’s New Content Hub.

What is the HubSpot Content Hub?

HubSpot’s latest update, Content Hub, was released in April 2024. It supplements — or more accurately, boosts — HubSpot’s existing content management suite. The biggest distinction is that it’s fueled by AI — so it empowers the user to create, distribute, and repurpose dynamic and creative assets right within the HubSpot environment. 

But on top of its AI capabilities Content Hub offers a powerful range of new features.  Some are accessible to legacy CMS Hub users, while others are exclusive to the Content Hub.

Whether you are already an avid HubSpot user or just joining the platform, you need to know about the Content Hub.

We’ve put together a detailed breakdown of what each version offers so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to upgrade your HubSpot environment.

Features for Legacy CMS Hub Customers

If you are an existing CMS Hub user, you may have noticed that you can now access several new tools designed to level up content creation, diversity, and management.

Features Exclusive to Content Hub

Accessing the full suite of new features does require you to upgrade to the Content Hub. But here’s a tip from our own experience: we chose to make the upgrade and have never looked back.

In a very short amount of time, we’ve fully leveraged the exclusive features — and they’re already making a difference.

Our team is thrilled with all the new opportunities it opens up. The Hub helps them stay aligned with our content strategy in a seamless, efficient way. Of course, we love being able to consistently bring you richer content faster than we ever have been able to before.

Making the jump to the Content Hub was a given — and if you’re ambitious about your content strategy, it’s likely you’ll find that as well.

Which is Right for You: Content Hub vs. Marketing Hub Features

HubSpot’s restructuring has differentiated the Content Hub from the Marketing Hub, targeting specific use cases for each product. Here are some key differences: 

  • Content Hub Only: Blogs, landing pages, and advanced testing and approvals.
  • Marketing Hub Only: Smart content and A/B testing for marketing emails, email approvals, and free versions of blogs and landing pages.
  • Shared Features: SEO tools, video hosting, and multilingual content creation.

A Great New Tool for Content Management Needs

With the introduction of the HubSpot Content Hub, HubSpot now has a robust suite that’s tailored to modern content needs and goals, with scalability, AI integration, and comprehensive management tools.

Whether or not you should  upgrade from CMS Hub to Content Hub largely depends on your specific needs for advanced features and streamlined content management. But most of the clients we work with find that they experience the benefits of upgrading nearly immediately. 

If you are looking for a dedicated team to identify what features are right for your business goals, or you want help planning your HubSpot environment, we’d be happy to talk to you.
