The integration of HubSpot with Webflow has evolved considerably, especially with the announcement of the new Webflow app for HubSpot integration in the 2023 Webflow conf keynote. This article provides a step-by-step guide on how to seamlessly integrate HubSpot forms inside Webflow, capitalising on the latest features and functionalities.
The Previous Integration Landscape
Prior to the introduction of Webflow Apps:
Integrating HubSpot with Webflow was a laborious task requiring the use of third-party tools such as Zapier or Integromat (now known as Make).
Detailed attention was necessary to align each field and ID, be it checkboxes, dropdowns, or other elements.
Users often had to purchase a Zapier plan, which added to the overhead costs.
The design capabilities when using embeds were restricted, and custom embeds often compromised website speed.
It was possible to style forms in Webflow, but detailed knowledge of CSS code was required from a Webflow Expert
