Imagine how much more effective marketing assets and even customer service could become if your team could view key interactions that a contact had with your company.

This is the true power of the contact record history.

Creating contact records in HubSpot enables your team to record and retrieve information on anyone your business interacts with, helping everyone to stay on the same page.

Navigate to the contact record

In HubSpot, get started by viewing history of all properties in a record:

Here are just a few examples of valuable contact activities that HubSpot can document in a contact record’s history:

View contact email opens, clicks, and replies

By being able to see how your contact has interacted with communications, you can ensure sales information has been received by contact. Sales teams with this information can consider if they want to reach out via phone if a contact is not opening emails.

Track page views to see if contact is engaging with website

Contacts who are actively viewing pages might have a higher likelihood of purchasing, and by being aware of the contact’s activities, sales and marketing can track the buyer’s journey better.

Track if contacts are opening sales documents

What salesperson doesn’t want to know if their proposal has been received and viewed? Sales teams can send documents to specific contacts and then track if the contact has opened them. This is powerful insight that can signal to a sales rep to reach out and ask if the contact has any questions or is ready to move forward.

Your web forms are the doorways through which contacts and leads enter, so it is critical to be able to see if a contact has registered for an event, downloaded an offer from a landing page, or has filled out a contact form.
