HubSpot Event Streaming v2

HubSpot is an easy to use and powerful CRM platform that enables scaling companies to sell, market and provide customer service from a unified UI. Amplitude's HubSpot streaming integration enables you to forward your Amplitude events and event properties straight to HubSpot with just a few clicks.

This integration is in Closed Beta

This feature is in Closed Beta and is in active development. Email [integrations@amplitude.com](mailto:integrations@amplitude.com] for more information. Unlike the HubSpot streaming integration, this integration automatically creates the necessary custom event definitions and properties in HubSpot, rather than requiring you to create them manually.

Use cases

  1. Personalized Marketing: With the ability to track user behavior and capture user and event properties in Amplitude, businesses can create highly personalized and targeted marketing campaigns in HubSpot. This can lead to increased engagement, conversions, and customer loyalty.
  2. Lead Scoring and Nurturing: By tracking user behavior and capturing user and event properties in Amplitude, businesses can score and prioritize leads based on their level of engagement and interests. This can help businesses to optimize their lead nurturing efforts and increase their chances of closing deals.
  3. Customer Retention: By tracking user behavior and capturing user and event properties in Amplitude, businesses can identify customers who are at risk of churning and take proactive steps to retain them. For instance, businesses can trigger personalized emails or ads to offer discounts or incentives to encourage customers to stay engaged with the product or service.

Considerations

Keep these things in mind when sending events to HubSpot:

  • If you have an existing HubSpot streaming sync HubSpot streaming integration, and you want to access these new features, select HubSpot V2 in the Data Catalog to create a new Event streaming connection . With this update, Amplitude sends events and their properties to different event definitions in HubSpot, matching each of the selected events, rather than the single event definition from the internal event name.
  • You must enable this integration in each Amplitude project you want to use it in.
  • Events from Amplitude appear as Custom Behavioral Events in HubSpot.
  • A HubSpot Enterprise Marketing Hub account is required to send Custom Behavioral Events.
  • Relevant limits for HubSpot events are:
    • HubSpot enforces strict API rate limits. You can find more information about these limits here.
    • HubSpot allows up to 50 custom properties for each custom event.
  • Amplitude sends selected event properties along with the event.
  • Amplitude targets an end-to-end p95 latency of 60s. This means 95% of Events streamed deliver to HubSpot within 60s or less. Amplitude has internal processes, monitors, and alerts in place to meet this target.

Setup

Amplitude setup

  1. In Amplitude Data, click Catalog and select the Destinations tab.
  2. In the Event Streaming section, click HubSpot V2.
