  • 12. HubSpot is growing very fast and with that come teething problems. There have been some issues with reliability of the service and plenty of (usually minor) bugs. Recently this has been much better…but for a while it was painful! Stephanie W. Marketing Technologist

  • 15. Marketo will tell you that you don't need to know how to code to use it, but if you want your landing pages/emails it to look professional, you do need to review the html code yourself. Having a technical person set it up was vital. Jill A. User Experience Architect

  • 26. 83% of LeadFormix (Callidus Cloud) reviewers are likely to recommend to the product.
