HubSpot Comparisons

Plans & Pricing

As mentioned previously, the project management software is part of the marketing hub that Hubspot offers. There are three core pricing plans which are divided based on the features available and usage limits.

HubSpot pricing isn’t an apples-to-apples comparison to most project management tools. Instead of per-seat pricing, it goes with pricing based on contacts. Keep that in mind when comparing it to other platforms.



This plan begins at $45/month when paid annually and supports up to 1,000 contacts. You get access to forms, email marketing, landing pages, task list creation, projects, and project templates.


The Professional plan starts at $800/month when you subscribe for annual billing and supports a minimum of 2,000 contacts. It builds on the Starter plan by including marketing automation, team management, a calendar, and deeper analytics.


The Enterprise plan requires a much larger investment of $3,200/month when on an annual plan and has a minimum of 10,000 contacts. All of the features are available such as revenue attribution, behavioral triggers for events, lead scoring, and much more.

Ease of Use

HubSpot Projects scores high marks for ease of use. This is due, in large part, to its minimalistic approach to project management. It provides the tools you need, a few simple views, and allows you to get to work on what matters. There is little to no learning curve. If you’ve used a project management tool in the past (and even if you haven’t), you’ll be able to master HubSpot Projects in a few minutes. It’s the rest of the marketing suite that may take some getting used to for you.

Customer Support

HubSpot is an established player and has developed many support channels over the years. The level of support you can access is determined by your plan with phone support only available on the Enterprise and Professional plans. For everyone else, live chat and email support are available. When speaking to live support reps, they’re generally knowledgeable about the software and can help you solve most issues.

Features & Functionality
General Features

HubSpot Projects is a simple project management tool that strips away all of the added features that may not be needed to get the job done. As part of the larger marketing suite, customers get a lot more functionality that’s directly tied to helping them build awareness and grow their brand.

You’re able to set up multiple projects to organize initiatives within your teams, manage team members, create an unlimited number of tasks, and assign those tasks to anyone on the team. You can also create subtasks that are dependent on the main task which makes it easier to organize work.

In addition to the core project management tools, you’ll also have access to forms to capture contact information, email marketing to keep leads engaged, landing pages that make it possible to deliver targeted messages, and live chat to further engage website visitors.

HubSpot is an expansive platform that has been able to combine many tools into one in a way that’s not daunting for the end-user. HubSpot Projects is a simple project management solution that strips away the bells and whistles that you’ll find in other purpose-built software. Instead, it focuses on the main tools a user would need such as tasks, assigning team members, projects, and project templates. Many people will appreciate the simplicity but many won’t.
If you’re only looking for a project management tool then this may not be for you because it’s part of a larger marketing suite. You’ll get a lot of additional tools in addition to accessing the project management software. If that’s something you’re interested in then the deep integration with the rest of the platform and the simplicity may be worth checking out.
