How often are your team members running into design problems using the HubSpot platform that leave them stumped or simply frustrated? While the design manager allows you to use a drag and drop template builder, perfecting your HubSpot design can take massaging that only a team member familiar with coding can understand.
Time wasted on managing these problems is better served on creating winning marketing strategies that your clients can visibly see through the HubSpot platform. So how do you get better at managing your HubSpot design problems? We’ve got some ideas.
Get a certified HubSpot developer on your team
This may seem like the simplest solution and it is, but there are different ways to go about it. Depending on how much or often your business requires development work within the HubSpot platform, you may be more inclined to outsource a certified HubSpot developer. This will allow you access to someone who understands the intricacies of the HubSpot Design Platform. Your projects gets handled by an expert and are developed to work and look how you need them to. Bonus, when problems arise, you can just send them off to that developer who can fix them quickly.
Design first build later
Approach all of your HubSpot page and email development with not only a design in mind but one completed in a design program like Photoshop or at least the map on paper. This allows you to think about what needs to be accomplished from the beginning of the build. It takes time out of problem solving and brainstorming and allows you to approach each template build with a goal in mind. This will also allow you to set standards in the design manager instead of spending time formatting each module on the front end.
Organize your file manager and template layouts
Design problems and time problems often arise from an unorganized HubSpot platform. Be diligent about using folders to organize your designs and layout. This way when you want to find the layout that you need, it’s an easy to navigate process.
Bookmark helpful articles and pages
HubSpot is the king of creating easy to follow and read articles that help you to learn how to use their platform. On top of that, other marketing agencies and expert developers have their own blogs that help can help you navigate the platform. When you run across a problem and learn how to solve it, bookmark the article or video that helped you do so. Same goes with the coding you may need to make your design work.
