You had an idea, we built it. After 100+ votes in the idea forum, HubSpot is happy to announce the roll-out of password protected pages as an option within the new landing pages. Any customer using the new landing pages can now access this feature under the option tab.
Why are password protected pages useful?
There are a lot of different ways to use password protected pages on your website (secret garden of puppy photos anyone?) but the following are some examples of how password protected pages could help in your marketing.
Create a page on your site just for staff. Keep sales collateral and marketing materials there.
Create a 'client-only' page on your website, post templates and client-specific materials there.
Have a page for re-sellers and partners to get advanced materials ahead of a product launch.
How do I set up a password-protected page?
The two minute video below (2:36) will walk you through setting up and using your password protected pages. If you have any questions after viewing, you're welcome to leave them in the comments below and I'll get them answered.
