With the HubSpot app, you can easily streamline your team’s workflows and keep your Intercom leads and users synced with HubSpot. You can:
- Automatically send leads/users and their conversations to HubSpot.
- Manually create ‘Contacts’ in HubSpot from Intercom with a single click.
- Send Operator-qualified leads to HubSpot automatically.
- Trigger ‘workflows’ in HubSpot using your leads’ Intercom conversations.
- Keep your HubSpot contacts updated with their latest Intercom details (name, email and phone).
- View your lead’s HubSpot profile beside their conversation in Intercom.
- Check your lead’s Intercom conversation history in HubSpot
Note: When you send a lead from Intercom to HubSpot, they’ll be created as a ‘contact’ in HubSpot.
Here’s how to get started:
First, install the HubSpot app
To install the HubSpot app, go to the app store and click the HubSpot app:
Note: The Hubspot app is available on any Essential or Pro plan.
Then, click ‘Install now’:
Next, you’ll then be prompted to connect your HubSpot account to Intercom:
Note: You must have admin access in HubSpot to connect with Intercom.
Once connected, you can now choose to send your leads and their conversations to HubSpot in one of two ways:
- Automatically - Automatically send new lntercom leads and their conversations to HubSpot.
- Manually - Send a lead to HubSpot with a single click.
Automatically create contacts in HubSpot
It’s easy to automatically create contacts in HubSpot for all of your Intercom leads.
Just go to the app store and click the HubSpot app. Then switch on ‘Automatically create HubSpot contacts’:
Now, every lead and user with an email address will be created as a contact in HubSpot.
Note: Only leads and users created after you’ve installed the HubSpot app will be automatically created in HubSpot. If you’d like to sync leads from before the app installation, export them from Intercom and import them to HubSpot. The Hubspot app will sync your leads' name, email and phone number.
Automatically send conversations to HubSpot
After a HubSpot contact is created, your leads' and users' conversation transcripts will also automatically appear as activities in HubSpot. We send Intercom conversations to HubSpot when they are started or closed.
Note: Only conversations that were created after you connected the Hubspot app to Intercom, and that have an end user reply, will be sent to HubSpot.
Manually create contacts in HubSpot with a single click
It’s easy to create a contact in HubSpot while you chat to your lead. Just click ‘Create Lead’ in your lead’s ‘external profile’, next to the conversation:
Your lead will be created as a contact in HubSpot. You can easily check their HubSpot owner, stage and status while you chat to them:
Your leads' and users' conversation transcripts will also automatically appear as activities in HubSpot.
Note: To view Intercom conversations in HubSpot, ensure you have Intercom switched on in your activity filters:
Here are some ways to nurture leads faster with the HubSpot app:
Send qualified leads to HubSpot automatically
If you use Operator’s ‘Qualify leads’ skill to qualify your leads, you can automatically create 'contacts’ in HubSpot as a follow-up action.
For example, if a lead provides you with their company name, company size and email address, you could automatically create those leads in HubSpot:
Sync your leads' details
If you update your lead’s contact details in Intercom, they'll automatically update in HubSpot.
Note: Only the following qualification attributes are updated automatically: email, phone, first name and last name. This sync only works if you update details in Intercom. For example, if you update a lead’s email address in HubSpot, it will disconnect the lead in Intercom.
Trigger workflows in HubSpot using Intercom conversations
You can use any part of an Intercom conversation to trigger an action in a HubSpot workflow.
When creating a ‘trigger’ or ‘action’ in your workflow, just select ‘Intercom conversation property’:
You can use any part of the Intercom conversation as your trigger, including:
- The date it occurred
- Keywords contained in the conversation’s transcript
- The conversation’s URL
For example, you might have a workflow to automatically nurture new leads who are interested in pricing. You can automatically add new lead conversations from Intercom to this workflow, that mention ‘pricing’ or ‘monthly plans’.
