Head to Head: HubSpot vs. Pardot
If you’ve ever watched the Super Bowl with someone who doesn’t follow the sport, then you’ll know the factors they use to influence their team loyalties are pretty questionable: the cheerleaders, the quarterback’s looks, the jersey colors, the mascots, etc. Those novice (but sometimes fun, if not funny) fans are usually the ones who also pick the winning squares or guess the game’s score correctly, for whatever reason.
Unfortunately, choosing marketing automation software is not a close your eyes, pick a team and win, type of situation. Due diligence is required to ensure that not only your company’s time and money is well spent, but also that your marketing automation software fosters long-term customer relationships and moves prospects through the sales funnel quickly. For the purpose of pinning HubSpot and Pardot against each other, let’s take a look from both the casual and die-hard fan’s perspective.
