What Comes with your
migration?

Hermitcrabs’s Migration Service is not a website redesign. Instead, we’ll work with you to bring your existing website into HubSpot so you can get a holistic view of the customer experience, remove gatekeepers from your website, and truly take ownership of your company’s growth machine. Your migration comes with...

  • Your existing web content recreated in HubSpot’s easy to use platform
  • A standard set of templates and assets that match your current design and brand
  • Automatic URL mappings to preserve your site’s SEO.

Why consider a website
migration?

If you’re not ready to fully redesign your website, but want your website hosted on a secure platform where you’ll be able to update your own content as you see fit and use your website to grow your business, a website migration onto HubSpot could be right for you. You should consider migrating your site if...

  • You find there are gatekeepers preventing you from updating your website.
  • You’re unable to effectively report on the effectiveness of your site because it’s separate from the rest of your growth machine.
  • You’re concerned about the security or performance of your current solution.

Our HubSpot migration process

Depending on the extent of the website we are building, the process may vary but below are the main steps we take when building your new skyrocketing website

01

Content and website audit

In order to scope the project, we need to audit the existing websites size, content, services, functionality & integrations. We will also audit your goals and needs to make sure that a CMS migration is what you need.

02

Quote and plan

Based on the findings we’ll create a project definition, estimations and a quote. Once we agree on the assignment, a project manager will be assigned and a project plan will be developed.

03

Theme development

All defined templates are developed in your HubSpot portal. Always responsive and SEO-optimized.

04

Functional migration

If there are any technical functions to be migrated, those will be developed and moved to the new platform.

05

HubSpot system templates and assets

Password pages, email preferences pages and 404s are developed. If there are no prior templates, these will be developed in-line with the overall look of the site.

06

Content migration

When all templates and functionality has been developed, we can start to move the content.

07

Tools setup, optimization, SEO and redirects

At this point, the site is viewable by a test link, but before we can move further we have to clean up after ourselves:

  • Redirecting - making sure we maintain page ranks
  • All previous tools are installed
  • Overall website optimizations
08

QA & Testing

Your site is now finished and ready to be launched. This phase gives you an opportunity to test it and collect feedback from internal stakeholders. Making sure we’re ready to go live.

09

Launch

Grab some cake, your new website is live!

    10/10, the ideal development
    partner! I've been working with
    Hermitcrabs for about 2 years

    (across multiple projects), and I've been continually impressed with the level of service, quality of work, and speed of project turnaround. Specifically, our account manager ( Reddy) has done an incredible job of coordinating between our marketing team and Hermitcrabs's development team. We feel incredibly taken care of, and we've got a lot of trust in the team over at Hermitcrabs. The work itself has been done swiftly, to scope, and intuitively and cleanly so that we can easily change and maintain the various pages & functionality that we've built together. It's refreshing to have a team of developers that you don't have to hand-hold or worry about; instead, they've become a strategic partner that recommends best practices and ensures we're building things the right way. I'd wholeheartedly recommend the team at Hermitcrabs for anyone looking for a true partner in advancing and growing their business.

    BLACAZ has emerged as an InsurTech company enabling and bringing change to the way insurance is purchased. Our vision to turn corporate insurance from a complex obligation to a daily relief: Personalize, subscribe and manage all insurances instantly in one place.Our vision would have not been possible without Niranjan Reddy and his awesome team. They have an excellent understanding of HubSpot and integrating with other platforms. They look at your project holistically and help you design the solution you need. The team’s enthusiasm and dedication to the project was obvious. They set up anefficient workflow, turned tasks around within the day, and always delivered exceptional work. They were great at meeting our needs within our budget, and open about the things that they could do and the things that we probably didn’t need.

    Great agency to work with! I'm always hesitant about working with external agencies to

    complete web development work because things get lost in translation and deadlines are always missed. Fortunately, this was not the case with Hermitcrabs. Their team is very knowledgeable with HubSpot and were able to deliver what we had asked for in a timely fashion. The team is very responsive and extremely helpful. I would definitely work with them again.

  • Database-driven pages
  • Login or members-only section
  • Mega menus, image based menus, or menus with non-linked content (descriptions or paragraph content)
  • E-commerce functionality
  • Progressive forms/forms with logic
  • Calculators and other gizmos that use server-side scripts

  • Dealer locators
  • Real estate listings and search if managed on their site
  • Flash websites, Flash navigation, and Flash with embedded links/multiple files associated
What may change in the migration?
Arrow

  • Precise spacing, non-standard fonts, and column widths may change
  • Responsive layout may change
Why do I need a live URL?
Arrow

The URL you provide to our Migrations team must be to a live page/site so we can access the HTML and CSS being used on the page to replicate the content in HubSpot.

Can I submit a staging site?
Arrow

Yes, you can submit a live URL to a staging site.

Can I submit a password protected page?
Arrow

Yes, as long as you provide the password.

Can you make my blog look like the Hubspot blog?
Arrow

No, we will replicate your existing blog in HubSpot.

I want to use my site migration onto HubSpot as an opportunity to redesign my site; will HubSpot do this for me?
Arrow

No, our migrations services will replicate your existing site format/content, not redesign it. If you would like to redesign your site, we recommend doing so BEFORE requesting a HubSpot migration service or work with a HubSpot partner who can redesign and migrate your site.

Which edition of CMS Hub do I need to use HubSpot’s professional migration services?
Arrow

Template setup, blog migration, and website migrations are available for CMS Hub Professional and CMS Hub Enterprise customers. CMS Hub Starter customers can leverage HubSpot’s tools to import their blog content or website structure into HubSpot. Learn more here.
