HubSpot is surely the marketer’s tool to make it big with high quality leads and increased conversions, but WordPress has its own charm. No wonder it is known as one of the veteran softwares of the IT industry. Here are a few key points as to why someone would shift from HubSpot to WordPress.

SEO

Then, you can bid farewell to all SEO troubles. Your SEO is covered. Not just this, WordPress offers something amazing known as metadata control for each and every blog post.

Theme Library

While working with WordPress sky is the limit. It offers extensive flexibility when it comes to the looks and the way your blog post should be. It offers a vast library with thousands of themes that you can apply to give a distinguished look. You can either use the free ones, paid ones or edit and make a few changes to the existing ones. If you have a WordPress designer on-board.

So just take your pick! Elementor, ACF, Divi, Beaver builder or some other marvel of WordPress!!

These were the few positives of shifting to WordPress.

Now Let’s Have A Look At The Process Of Blog Migration From Hubspot To WordPress!

Template Creation

First off, create a new blog template on HubSpot by  navigating to ‘Marketing’, selecting ‘website’ and clicking on Blog then go to settings and click on ‘Create a new blog’. Then give it a relevant name so you remember that it was the blog you imported to WordPress. You can change the location of the blog if you want and then click on ‘Create’.

Text Insertion

Once the new template is created, there will be default coding. Delete it! Now all you need to do is copy and paste the code from the snippet given below. Don’t forget to update it. This is a shortcut to directly convert your blog file into the CSV format. 

Preview Your Hubspot To WordPress Migration

Now go to the top right corner of your portal and click on the ‘Preview’ button. You can choose the type of preview that you want to run from the drop-down menu whether Live with different display options or static. Select the static option for migration from HubSpot to WordPress. Now select all the text and copy it. Choose the ‘blog_recent_posts’ function and then you can migrate up to 200 blogs. Good news! If you are using a higher version than you can import up to 1000 blogs.

Edit And Save

You copied the content! Now open the best text editor, whichever you use or whatever’s your choice, codeshare, code pen, VSCode, Notepad++ or VIM. Paste the content here and save it as a .CSV file. All the blogs will be saved in this format in this folder. 

Install WordPress

You want to import your blogs to WordPress right! So go ahead and install WordPress and set up the ‘WP All Import’ functionality. Here’s a tip: Import the Pro version of WordPress so that all your content, images and videos can be downloaded seamlessly. Also don’t forget to install plug-ins and extensions as per the content requirement. Don’t worry most of the plug-ins are free.

Now Let’s Start With The Importing!

Once you click on WordPress, the Admin page will open. Now click on ‘All import’ on the left side to create an all new Admin page. As you click on ‘All Import’ a pop-up will emerge! Select ‘Upload a file’. Now choose the .CSV folder that has all your blogs that you want to migrate from HubSpot to WordPress. An ‘upload complete’ message will appear once it’s done. Check whether the entire data from the .CSV folder is uploaded. 

Start With The Importing

Now let’s map all the data according to the WordPress fields. Now start dragging and roping the file name from the content area on the right. Remember to add all the content in its respective fields.

In the Pro version you can directly configure the image importer by expanding the images as you wish. You can also expand the tags, taxonomies and categories. 

Importing CSV files

Once this is done you will be redirected to the page for your category check. Now drag and drop the post category in the respective fields. Scroll down to ‘ Other post options’ and map the data as per your needs. You can select post status, post dates, comments, post slug, post author before the import.
