If you’ve looked at the pricing page of HubSpot, you might have seen that HubSpot includes an onboarding fee in some of their pricing. This price varies from $230 for a Quick Start Consultation for Sales Hub Professional, but can also reach up to $5.500 for a Marketing Enterprise Onboarding.
Agencies working with HubSpot usually offer a similar onboarding or implementation service too. If you buy HubSpot via a certified HubSpot partner, you don’t pay for the mandatory HubSpot onboarding.
So what’s the difference between the two? Well, firstly an agency is a lot more flexible in what they can offer you and how they can help. HubSpot (even HubSpot Support) steps away from anything that has to do with code, custom integrations or extensive customization. This is exactly where a partner or agency steps in.
