HubSpot and Contacts

Your HubSpot contact data has been imported into MessageBird's Contacts. Navigate to Contacts and select a contact.

In the contact profile, the contact's attributes will now include a section for the HubSpot connector. All relevant HubSpot contact properties will be displayed here.

These HubSpot attributes will also be visible in Inbox so that agents can reference HubSpot contact data when talking to customers.

In the following image, you can see where HubSpot connector data sits within a contact profile.

Define audiences

Now that you've imported your HubSpot data to contacts, you can use that data to create rich, dynamic contact audiences.

To do this, go to Contacts > Audiences, then click Attribute and select any HubSpot attribute. Combine this attribute with any other HubSpot, MessageBird, or other connector attributes, to start building an audience based on your HubSpot data.

In the following images, you can see how to find and select HubSpot attributes.

You can now use HubSpot with Flows to trigger flows when an event happens in HubSpot, and perform actions in HubSpot when an event happens in MessageBird.
