HUGs are a valuable and educational resource for HubSpot customers to learn about inbound marketing and sales and HubSpot software best practices. HUG members share their success stories, partake in discussions, and network with other HubSpot customers to build a strong HubSpot community in their local city.
To run a successful and valuable HUG, the HUG leader should commit about 5 hours per week to maintain the group. This includes updating the HUG website, engaging with members in the LinkedIn group, planning event logistics, and promoting upcoming meetups.
HUG Leaders are required to be employed by a HubSpot partner agency and/or be an active HubSpot customer and must be inbound and HubSpot software certified. HUGs are not to be used as a direct method to drive leads or traffic to your website. For more information on who can apply, check out our HUG guidelines.
HUG Applications open two times per year - you can apply or join our waitlist here.
Each HUG has a designated leader. However, recruiting volunteers from other partners or direct customers in your area to manage your local HUGs can help the leader to share the workload and create a more collaborative event.
If interested in starting a HUG, please fully read the HUG guidelines here to ensure you accept the terms of the program. Please Note: HUG applications are currently closed for 2018. We will revisit any applications received for 2019.
