Connecting the systems
The Demand Acceleration Platform needs credentials gathered from HubSpot in order to send leads into a form. The sections below outline the details needed and instructions to complete this setup in both platforms.
Create a form in HubSpot
It is recommended to create a single form in HubSpot, where lead data can be sent from the Demand Acceleration Platform. In HubSpot, you can then write a workflow to route the leads into a campaign/list. You can use if/then branches in the workflow to segment leads based on a specific field (eg. country, industry).
1. In HubSpot, go to Marketing > Forms and click Create form. This is where lead data will be posted from the Demand Acceleration Platform.
2. Complete the form build as per your requirements. See create forms in HubSpot for more information.
Gather required information from HubSpot
Once your HubSpot form is established, you need to retrieve the following data points from HubSpot.
