As you grow, it’s essential to analyze and report on which strategies are paying off in order to inform future efforts. Reporting takes time, and it can be complicated to combine data from multiple tools and systems. 


Although this is important, you want to focus your energy on executing to drive those metrics rather than analyzing them. That’s why we've put together a list of free apps you can use for reporting on your key performance metrics. Plus, they're all integrated with HubSpot CRM!

Marketing and sales are becoming more data driven; in fact, in February 2018, 42.1% of companies reported using more marketing analytics in decision-making, up from 31.6% the previous year. To be successful, it’s important to report on what’s working to show how your work is contributing to the business's bottom line.

However, 75% of marketers spend up to an hour a day analyzing data from different tools, which is a lot of time away from executing your core strategy. By using integrated apps that help you demonstrate your impact or combine data from different tools, you gain back valuable time in your day.

We’ve put together a list of tools you can take advantage of when reporting on your key metrics. Each one of the featured apps below has a free product and a free integration that connects to HubSpot’s free CRM. Keep reading to learn about essential data and analytics apps in HubSpot Connect.

Analyze Your Website Experience With Hotjar

Hotjar helps you understand your web and mobile site visitors so you can find your growth opportunities.

The Hotjar + HubSpot integration brings the data gathered from Hotjar polls directly into the contact timeline so that you can have a deeper understanding of visitor and customer feedback. With more people reluctant to share information, HotJar gives you the tools to understand them without asking them to fill out a form.
